The Death Penalty should be banned

To begin, I want to discuss the massive issue of what if the person being executed is actually innocent? Murderers who have been convicted guilty of murder are occasionally put on death row. Yet we have to wonder, what if that person never committed the awful things the judge and jury may be accusing them of? Is it not unlawful to execute a person who is innocent? Does that not make the executor the true murderer? Since the 1980"s, there have been 13 cases in which executed inmates may have...

Death Penalty

We reserve the death penalty in the United States for the most heinous murders and the most brutal and conscienceless murderers. This is not, as some critics argue, a kind of state-run lottery that randomly chooses an unlucky few for the ultimate penalty from among all those convicted of murder. Rather, the capital punishment system is a filter that selects the worst of the worst... Put another way, to sentence killers like those described above to less than death would fail to do justice bec...

We should redo the death penalty.

What I'm proposing here is this. We should only focus on mass murdered, serial killers, and persons who torture children. We should have one trail for these individuals who commit these crimes. The death penalty is reach on unanimous 12-member jury finds "beyond a reasonable doubt" that they were met. Given the carnage in the Florida Parkland shooter here and the callous manner in which the shooter went about causing it, the prosecution would not have much difficulty meeting the burden. So once...

Death Penalty

Full resolution: The death penalty is an ideal form of punishment for particular criminal cases. My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

The death penalty for torturers.

KJVPrewrather
cole.bonds

Torture is the worst thing you can do to someone, and while, I'm not usually for the death penalty, I think the government should execute all proven torturers with nitris oxide, or secanal, posthaste. I was tortured, and I would rather die than be tortured again. This as always must be done through due process and the rule of law....
