death penalty should be abolish

Aika

I think that death penalty is too cruel. In spite of the fact that somebody kills someone it does not matter that our society has rights to kill too. It means that we are murderers too. I believe that istead of death penalty it's better to give them life sentence. Because life without freedom, it is the worst think in our life. Also, we knew such situations were suffered innocent people and it is awful. That's why, before talk about every kind of death penalty, we must think about the meaning an...

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...

The death penalty should be banned as killing people for committing crimes makes us just as bad as the. As well as that banning it produces an economic benefit as it costs more money to have a death penalty trial and execution than it does to keep prisoners in prison for over 70 years....

Many people believe the USA should keep the death penalty while others want to abolish it.I as pro am going to argue that all states in the US should have the death penalty. The burden of proof is shared.The participants have 72 hours to write their posts and the character limit is 10.000.This debate is part of the se...

This is my third debate with an opponent about this - because I am very fond of debating! Now, on to the format. Should my opponent, DavidMGold, accept, he will accept the following things: 1) First round is acceptance only 2) Fifth round cannot include new contentions/arguments or refutes. 3) No religious arguments can be used. 4) A for...
