The Death Penalty Should Be Used In Certain Cases

mongoose
mongeese

Resolved: The death penalty should be used in certain cases There are many cases in which the death penalty is just and should be used. For example, if a man is proven that, without a doubt, he killed another man, that murderer should be killed. While it would be profitable to use the people in prison to do labor, the prisoner should at least be given the option between death and working in prison for the rest of his life.

Rebuttals will begin in R3 and the debate will conclude i...

Tobacco smoking can be dated back to approximated 6000 BC. Today it is ubiquitous throughout the Americas. 42 percent of Americans smoke cigarettes. The exponential increase in demand attests its highly addictive nature. Till today, some people rest assured that cigarettes are merely a mental addiction, and the "...

PenelopeGrammer
Badtothebone

"This is the best part of the day, when I get to be fat, on the bed, with my quart of Coke," states Morgan Spurlock, a man who when on a fast food binge for one month. Now, most people wouldn"t think twice about wanting to go on an all McDonalds diet for 30 days, but their health suffers from the fatty fries and big burgers. Although the kids seem to adore the clown and food, nutrition and advertisements play a big role in how the fast food industry is at least partially to blame for our obesity...
