Life without parole is worse than the death penalty.

john.klepac
Rayze

Life without parole ultimately fails at both of its aims: -To be merciful (compared to the death penalty) - it keeps people locked up for the rest of their lives, knowing that they will never leave, but does not allow them to remove themselves from the situation, i.e. commit suicide. They will eventually die, and the state will not be sad, but they will have to wait a very long time for it. -To be harsh - It is not as "scary" as the death penalty and appears, to most people, to be a benign pun...

In this debate, I will address several main aspects of capital punishment (or death penalty; terms may be used interchangeably) in the United States.

Death Penalty (Capitol Punishment) in US

jackintosh
G131994

I will argue that the Death Penalty (Capitol Punishment) should be abolished. This method of punishment is an arcane punishment that makes the government a possible murderer of innocent citizens. It is a non effective method of deterrence for would be criminals. It is irreversible via appeal after the sentence has been carried out should new evidence be found. It permanent end to a life, leaving the possibility for true justice (for the victim, the accused and for the potential true criminal)...

Death Penalty

DebateKate
WhateverItTakes

There are many reasons why we should abolish the death penalty. It is expensive, cruel, flawed, and not doing anyone any favors. Skeptical? Maybe the following facts will change your mind! 1. It's expensive. As of April 30th, 2013, the US National Debt is over 16 trillion dollars. We can't afford to add to this tremendous amount! In California ALONE, over $4 BILLION dollars were spent on capital punishment ITSELF since 1978. And $184 million has been additionally spent EVERY YEAR in Californi...

The death penalty should be legal in Texas.

caitlynreily
GiantSpoonMan

The death penalty is a form of punishment in which the person who commited a certain heinous crime is put to death. Currently, Texas is for the death penalty. Huntsville, Texas is the only prison, at this time, that actually puts the inmates to death. The death penalty needs to remain legal in Texas....

The Death penalty should be abolished in all states of America.

Edgyruse
Masterdebatr91

I believe that the death penalty should be abolished in every state of America. 1. The death penalty is morally wrong and it contradicts the entire point of putting someone in prison in the first place. ( To learn from their mistakes and become better people. 2. In States where the Death Penalty is in place, murder rates are actually higher than those where there is no Death Penalty. http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/deterrence-states-without-death-penalty-have-had-consistently-lower-murder-r...
