I saw you say that it matters little if a criminal dies. Well I would like to counter your statement. Isn't killing one person because they killed someone else rather barbaric? In that sense all criminals should die if they have ever been charge with any sort of offense right? Oh, you were put in jail for stealing food to feed your kids! You're a criminal so yea no one will think twice if you die, you don't matter right? Their life doesn't matter. That's what you're saying? Well what if it was i...

Death Penalty

Jebediah-Kerman

The death penalty is sick. If you are trying to teach the world not to kill there own. If you want to get that message across then you have to practice what you preach! How are you going to say don't kill and then do that mortal sin right in front of your country! Many reasons that the death penalty is still legal in countries is because there isn't enough money to keep these notorious criminals alive so why not kill them right? WRONG! 130 people have been released from death row with proof of t...

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....

Should we punish corruptionists by death penalty?

Sani
San_9

No! I am against of this cruel punishment for corruption. The first and main reason is - corruption is everywhere, especially in our country. We are facing with it everyday and I am pretty sure, that some people ready to give money for their mistakes to police (as a bribe) or somebody else rather to pay a lot of money of fine to bank. Of course corruption could be differently sized, like political corruption where people steal more than millions, however death penalty is very savage way of punis...
