Death Penalty Should be Legal

The death penalty is a serious problem the world. For other countries they kill without a crime. There needs to be some sort of law to stop these crimes. I don't understand why some people are for abortion but against a death penalty. How could you kill a defenseless, innocent baby but not kill a man/woman who just murdered someone? The death penalty should be legal because it would stop these crazy people from committing these horrible crimes! Say your a homeless man struggling for money...

The Death Penalty should be abolished

"I don't think you should support the death penalty to seek revenge. I don't think that's right. I think the reason to support the death penalty is because it saves other people's lives." George Walker Bush. The death penalty should be preserved because it prevents future crimes, eliminating the death penalty would be counterproductive, and the death penalty benefits the economy. Now, to my first point, it deters would-be criminals to commit felonies. "The Washington Post" states, "Recent st...

Death penalty

I am against death penalty. It is like going back to the past, because most of the countries alredy abolish it. Why? Because life is a basic right, not even the government can violate that right, it doesn't matter if the crime is very high. Death penalty avoid the opportunity for criminals to reflect. And if you say that criminals will not change, how do you know that? The government should try to search spirit and psicologist help. I am in favour that maybe people will go out of the jail, but t...

The Death Penalty

If murder is (usually) the crime, why should murder be the penalty? The fact is, your just killing more people. Besides, http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/executed-possibly-innocent says more than 1000 people have been falsely accused and killed due to the death penalty (since 1976) You may bring up how the same thing applies to regular prison. To be fair, it does. Maybe there are even more. But there is a difference in killing a person and punishing them with jail. Now, couple no death penalty...

Death penalty should be allowed

Kylie.Cunningham
Capitalistslave

People who are threats to the innocent should be stopped but putting them into prison doesn't really solve what they did to the innocent not only that but it cost, 760,000 a year . They shouldn't be allowed to live if they killed someone. They should get what they deserve. It's just like the golden rule . " treat others the way you want to be treated". If you kill someone, then you should get punished for your actions....

Should the death penalty be legal?

FollowerofChrist1955

Rules: I'll be taking the position of the Con, you will take the position of the Pro. We are both Christians so quoting of the Bible is a legitimate defense of our beliefs, but also please include non-religious reasons for your beliefs as well. Round 1 is for acceptance, Round 2 is for arguments, Round 3 is for rebuttals. Thank you for considering participating in this debate....
