The death penalty should be banned


Hello, I'm Billy. I will be debating against the death penalty, the most extreme form of crime punishment. I will show you that the death penalty should and ought to be abolished. Here are 2 opening reasons to oppose capital punishment. (There will be 10 reasons total, 2 in each of the 5 rounds.) 1. The occasional mistake is more risky than it's worth. Let's say you accuse someone of murder, and the jury votes him as guilty and the state government executes him, but later you find out he's in...

Death penalty in U.S.A


USA is the only western country in the world who has death penalty. 38 states in USA have death penalty. You cannot get a death penalty for every crime you make. The only crime where you can get a death penalty is if you commit a premeditated murder. I think that death penalty should be illegal in all the states in America, one of the reasons is, I think it is moral wrong, to kill another human no mater what the person has done. The 10 commandments say that, ""You shall not murder"" I know tha...

The Death Penalty--With a Twist!


PrefaceI thank Kbub for agreeing to debate me on this! I think it is an interesting take on the Death Penalty debate, in that it seeks to evaluate the philosophy behind it, rather than becoming muddled in the practical concerns of its implementation. I would ask, however, that all arguments be topical to the resolution, and that we stick to the issue at hand (i.e. no Kritiks, theory, etc.). I ask this only because I am genuinely interested in debatin...

Should we keep the death penalty?


I believe that we should keep the death penalty. I feel that people who have committed crimes against humanity, don't deserve to live. They certainly are not worth the $168,00 dollars that we spend on them per year in prisons. That's why I think we should keep the death penalty and I expect a lively debate with my opponent! Thank you....

Death Penalty should be done away with


My opponent (Whoever chooses to accept) and I will be debating about whether or not the death penalty should be done away with. I am in favor that it should be. My opponent, whoever it will be, will not be.Anyone who wishes to debate me on this topic must follow these set of guidelines: You must follow common guidelines, such as plagiarism. A few jokes in between are acceptable, but other than that, take the debate seriously. Both sides...

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...

Death Penalty should be Abolished in all States


I believe the death penalty should be abolished. I think that killing someone is never the solution, no matter what crime they've committed. People might say that a murder should receive the death penalty because the punishment is equal to the crime, but "an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind". There are alternative punishments that I believe still serve justice but promote a more forgiving and merciful attitude in society....

The Death Penalty for the guilty


Right, I'll be going against why there should be no death penalty for the guilty.1)Firstly, it goes agaisnt the very law of Right to protection of life, by awarding a person the death penalty, we ourselves are violating the law and a violation of law is not acceptable2) Its does not teach the guilty anything, if you look at it. The death penalty, the person just dies there is no learning and no going through pain and realizing the mistake they've made, wehreas...

Should the death penalty be banned?


Anyone for the death penalty is accepted, no questions. First of all, I'm against the death penalty. What if you wrongfully execute someone? You can't bring him or her back to life. Since 1976, 520 people have been executed in Texas alone. Is that really necessary while there is other forms of punishment available? So in my opinion as an American, The United States should give the death penalty the boot, like the UK....

Death Penalty


Well I brought Allegra to this site for this reason alone, so hopefully it'll be fun. I know there's loads of debates regarding the Death Penalty already, but I figured let's have another because there can never be enough of anything. So I'll pass this on to Allegra to explain to everyone why the death penalty is so amazing! Thanks ;)...
