In States where the Death Penalty is in place, murder rates are actually higher than those where there is no Death Penalty. http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/deterrence-states-without-death-penalty-have-had-consistently-lower-murder-r...

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...

I'm pleased to be debating lotus_flower on this issue. Round one is for acceptance or clarification. Round two will be for constructives, but if my Opponent wishes to refute my case in his second round, that's fine too. However he must post arguments of his own. New arguments cannot be brought up in round 4. We can both ask our opponents questions during the debate. ...

I feel that the death penalty should be legal because people getting out of prison gives them a chance to re offend, it gives the family of the victims better closure, there are also a lot of over-populated prisons in America this will clear up many of those issues...

The death Penalty should still stand.

Koopin
studentathletechristian8

I think that the Death Penalty should stay. I do not believe that it is right to let a murderer stay in prison living off of tax dollars for the rest of his life. I believe that the penalty should only be used on people they have hard evidence on so they can avoid executing the wrong person. If the death penalty stayed, there would be less crimes in and outside of jail. Criminals would be afraid to kill someone fearing for their lives. Does anyone object?...

Should the death penalty be legal?

henryajevans

Capital punishment shoul be legal for some cruel crimes, like pedophilia or too cruel killing of human being. Because people like these usually have psychological problems, and if they rid from prison, they surely will do it again, and people may will suffer....
