Death Penalty

brendizzle29

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...

Should the Death Penalty Exist?

aaronjames.fortson

Should the death penalty be allowed or exist to begin with? In my opinion, I believe it should NOT exist, and should be abolished immediately. Having the worldview that I have, I think the death penalty is murder, and people who say it isn't, and that it is justice for the victims and the hurt, I think are only justifying their own evils. No matter how you look at it, when you have someone's life in your hands, and you intentionally let them die on your own accord, because you wanted them to, it...

Should the death penalty in America be abolished?

MasterROBO360

I think that the death penalty in America needs to be abolished. It is morally abhorrent for a number of reasons, and there are also a number of fallacies that I believe the death penalty is established on. The point I would like to begin on is that the death penalty is, contrary to popular belief, far more expensive than a life sentence. This may be unbelievable at first. But these costs do not come from the execution itself. They come from the extended length of trials on capital crimes com...

The Death Penalty should be made illegal in the USA.

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...

On the Death Penalty

JustCallMeTarzan
JBlake

I contend that the death penalty is a just punishment for certain types of crimes. The reasoning for this is rooted in basic positive AND negative rights - namely the right to life, the right to defend oneself, and the right to redress of grievances for harm to oneself or one's companions. I don't think anyone contests the notion that there is a basic right to live. In order to exercise this right, we must have a right to defend that life, either by incapacitation or fatality. Furthermore, gr...
