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...

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...

The death penalty was discarded in the late 1900's in Australia. Since then, there has been several huge debates about whether it should be brought back. As members of the general public, what side do you stand on?...

Death Penalty

I've set this debate up with LegalizedProstitute because it's been a while since I've had a serious debate, and I saw that his opponent in his last death penalty debate was new to the site and probably wasn't giving him a satisfying debate. So, should LegalizedProstitute choose to accept, here are the terms. I, Con, shall be arguing that death should not be a punishment for any crime. Pro will argue to the opposite. First Round is for Acceptance....

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 remain legal in the United States

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. ...
