We should abolish the death penalty in the US

The death penalty does more harm than good in today's society. At one time, it may have served a useful purpose, but it is no longer necessary and the small positives it may have are outweighed by the negatives. The death penalty is not able to be overturned, so any mistake in its application cannot be corrected because we do not have the power to resurrect people. Some propose that capricious application of the death penalty is flawed, but feel that the death penalty needs to be there for tr...

Death Penalty

LegalizedProstitute

I've set this debate up with LegalizedProstitute because it's been a while since I've had a serious debate, and I saw that his opponent in his last death penalty debate was new to the site and probably wasn't giving him a satisfying debate. So, should LegalizedProstitute choose to accept, here are the terms. I, Con, shall be arguing that death should not be a punishment for any crime. Pro will argue to the opposite. First Round is for Acceptance....

The Federal U.S. Government should declare the death penalty as cruel and unusual punishment

The death penalty is inhumane. No matter what crime someone is accused of committing, no person deserves to be punished by death. It is cruel and not morally correct....

The Death Penalty Should stay legal.

Pro, I wish you a good debate. The Death Penalty has been around for quite some time. It has had very extreme opinions put upon it and is thought of by some to be "Cruel/Unusual punishment." I'm here to say that I agree with the skeptics of the Death Penalty, because it is indeed corrupt and unpractical in our legal system. The Death Penalty is only used in top class crimes, however, why is it that since 1973 (in the U.S.), 138 people and counting have been released from Death row due to conf...

Resolved: The Death Penalty Should be Removed

Justification through economical, moral, political and/or legal are all legitimate, regardless of if both opponents argue differently (I may argue through legal and moral while my opponent justifies through economical and political for example). Thus both parties involved may choose what they will justify through what means. Death penalty: "Capital punishment, the death penalty, death sentence, or execution is a legal process whereby a person is put to death by the state as a punishment for...

The Death Penalty Should Be Illegal.

jd325494523

I am looking for someone to give a reasonable explanation(s) and arguments on why he or she feels that the death penalty should remain legalized in certain areas of the United States. Therefore, I will be arguing on why I do not agree with the death penalty. For this 1st round I am asking for acceptance, 2nd-4th round going deeper into the argument, and the 5th round should be the final conclusion. This is only my second debate and compared to my last argument, I know this is going to be even mo...

The Death Penalty should be made illegal in the USA.

EsmeeFallen

Welcome everyone to this debate that I have started. The death penalty is a topic of hot controversy both within and outside of the USA. This debate will hopefully shed some light onto the subject for people who are either misinformed, confused, or just want a friendly debate. The rules are as follows: First round is acceptance only. Fifth round is closing statements only; no new arguments or refutes. No religious arguments. The BoP is shared. This is an open challenge to anyone that a...
