Dylann Roof death penalty

mars4435
OpinionPersom121

I understand that the person killed innocent people and that is a serious crime against humanity, especially the victim's close relatives and loved ones , but in the long-term putting Dylann Roof in life imprisonment is the best resolution. The way this would be best sentence instead of a death sentence is because if you were to sentence him to death he would feel only physical pain for a certain amount of time depending what type of way he dies ,while if you imprisoned him for life isolating hi...

I’d like to thank my opponent for agreeing to debate this resolution. I hope we both have an enriching debate.

Let us start by taking a case which I believe would be universally abhorrent. Assume a person A kills innocent girls/ women by luring them into his villa. And t...

MeargleSchmeargle
HankMG22

Capital punishment. It is the ultimate price for a crime. It is a sentence to be used on the most henious of crimes. Many however will argue that the death penalty is a cruel and unusual punishment in violation to our 8th amendment. I am here to make the fact plain that the death penalty is a necessary function of the legal system.Rules:No forfeitsNo trollingSource citations requiredFirst round is acceptance2nd round is opening statement3rd an...

The death penalty has been increasing the Death toll over the world. This penalty has mostly been given to murderers, though th executioner then will himself be a murder, and he will go on and on and on until humantiy is extinct. Also why kill two people for only one murder? To add on many of us value our nations heroes though theey killed other people illegaly....

Death Penalty- (Brief, Quick, Debate)

BrownIsBest
theisticscuffles

Death is truly an unusually severe punishment. Unusual in it's pain, unusual in it's suffering, it's finality, and it's enormity. Because of the nature of the death penalty, it treats those humans who are on death row as non humans toyed with and discarded. No matter what the crime, death should never be the choice. If anything, the worse punishment should be a life sentence. Rather than death, we should im...
