People of color are far more likely to be executed than white people, especially if the victim is white.The death penalty is a waste of taxpayer funds and has no public safety benefit. The vast majority of law enforcement professi...

On balance, Death Penalty as a punishment has a negative impact on the society

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

Death Penalty

Ahhh, the death penalty. The government taking someone's life because they took someone else's life. What obvious hypocrisy. I disagree with the death penalty because it is immoral. First, the death penalty implies that a jury of twelve people is qualified to take life into their own hands. Does this mean that mob execution should also be made legal? Second, the death penalty becomes intolerable the very moment that someone is wrongly convicted. Death is, if anything, permanent. If some...

I don't feel like death is the optimal punishment for an unforgivable crime. The criminal is killed gracefully, without pain, and that's it. How is that enough for anyone? I want murderers and rapists to suffer, and they don't suffer at all that way....
