Should there be a Death Penalty??

Greetings everyone, I want to discuss the issue of the death penalty. The death penalty is a favorite debate topic and this debate could go either way depending on the arguments. I have chosen to debate against it because I don't believe in taking away lives no matter what the reason. In a nutshell I believe the following: The death penalty is a violation of the most basic human right, the right to live which is also one of the basic principles on which the United States of America was found...

Those who oppose the Death Penalty should also appose abortion on demand.

I often hear people denunciate the practice of capital punishment because it's inhmane. Although I disagree, I understand the perspective. What puzzles me is the large percentage of those whom I discuss the issue are, in fact; pro-choice. Some become reticent when I include partial birth abortion, but still support the practice for reasons other than the mothers' life being endangered. I find that to be a conundrum. . ....

I read buringpuppies101's Big Issue and what side he went for on death penalty. First, I'd like to say, it is morally correct to punish a criminal with death. We don't need criminals who have brought death to our fellow citizens. We don't need criminals who rape or murder. I first believe they should serve prison time for the first murder, obviously. But if that criminal has been to jail and still murders, it is common sense jail has not changed the person. He/she must serve another more e...

A just society ought not use the death penalty as a form of punishment.

This is the round two debate of the Tournament of Champions. I thank my opponent for participating in this debate, the gracious judges for their time, and the host(s) of this tournament for creating a great forum for debate. Although this is an LD resolution, it will be debated in a more loose format. Definitions Just: acting or being in conformity with what is morally upright or good. Society: an enduring and cooperating social group whose members have developed organized patterns of r...

Thanks to crackofdawn_Jr. for accepting. I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I do. (NOTE: I will asses this frmoa Biblical perspective, seeing as we are both Christians.) Before I begin, I'd like to ask these questions to my opponent: What are some benefits of the death penalty? Unbeneficial effects? Do you think the Jesus would support the death penalty? Why or why not? What are the Bible's regards for killing? Once these are answered, I will go through with the debate. Thanks!...

Death Penalty

Candice I think we have to be friends now The topic of this debate says it all basically, The death penalty is a warning, just like a lighthouse throwing its beams out to sea. We hear about shipwrecks, but we do not hear about the ships the lighthouse guides safely on their way. We do not have proof of the number of ships it saves, but we do not tear the lighthouse down....
