I am going to argue that on balance, death penalty has a negative impact on the society. i.e the presumed improvement in law and order is not offset by the social costs of the decision.

First round whatever you want, open with your own arguments. I saw some people discussing this earlier and thought someone would at least consider trying to change my mind.

Please no semantics. Good luck!...

I shall state my argument.The Death penalty should be kept and in fact enforced.Let me tell you why.As we all know every crime should face its punishments.People should pay for what they've done.Yes,even now with the death penalty being enforced in certain countries and states people are still committing crimes worthy of the death penalty.However,they who commit those...

ThadeusSmith

Currently there are 3,425 people on Death Row. An incredible 4% are innocent. This totals to 123 people who will be killed, even though they are innocent. The Death Penalty should not be allowed for 3 reasons. 1- It is Morally Wrong 2- It is expensive 3- It is unconstitutional Rules: There will be 5 rounds. Introduction, Argument 1, Argument 2, Argument 3, Conclusion. Any personal attacks on the other debater will result in an instant disqualification. Any logical fallacies can be poi...

I think that the death penalty is more preferable for prisoners even though it is not for the general public because they would rather have the death penalty then spend their entire lives in jail without a chance of getting out....
