Death Penalty

Danielle

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

isarica_2001

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...

Select winner. 2k. I am going to literally copy and paste Roy's stuff cause it fits well.

Should murderers get the death penalty?

They should not get the death penalty. Because they are humans too. I know some of the murderers kill people willingly, but not all people that are convicted of murder are killing out of free will. There are several situations for where some has to protect themselves, which might mean killing a person....

Death Penalty

geeffree
imjustsomeguy

We, Geeffree, believe that the death penalty is an inhumane punishment for criminals, and believe that life in prison is a better way to keep them away from the public. For one thing, the death penalty costs way more money for tax payers than keeping them in jail without parole. Again, we believe that the death penalty is not a proper form of discipline....

Death Penalty Should be Legal

liberal_moron

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...
