Using the Threat of the Death Penalty to Ensure a Guilty Plea is Ok

MyDinosaurHands
Ajab

One common argument for the continuing existence of the Death Penalty is the idea that lawyers can threaten to pursue the Death Penalty, and thus scare the defendant into pleading guilty to a life sentence (or other lesser sentence) instead. I believe that this violates the intentions of our law system, and this argument should not be considered in a Death Penalty debate. <...

The minimum wage should not be raised to $15/hr for fast food workers

RoyLatham
TheHitchslap

Unions recently staged protests demanding that McDonald's in the U.S. should be required to pay workers a minimum of $15 per hour. An ABC News report provides some background on the issue [1. http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/fast-food-workers-demand-pay/story?id=20235304]. While McDonald's was the focus of the demonstrations, a law cannot target just one fast food company. If that were legal, other chains might get most of the business, McDonald's w...

Public School Students should wear School Uniforms

They limit rights Yes the good old constitution the foundation of america and this debate Some opponents claim that uniforms are not a fix-all for the problems that plague schools, but instead, violate a student's right to express themselves, as guaranteed by the First Amendment. In a school in california, 73% of the students claim that their first ammendment rights were violated. After they signed a pettition the school went back to the old ways. The case Tinker v. Des Moines decided that s...

The Elton John AIDS Foundation should be forced to close

It wasn't Mary's fault she was plain looking and lacked the feminine curves that most other young women have. It was also unfortunate that she was flat-chested, but she didn't help herself by keeping her hair short, by dressing in trousers rather than skirts and by not wearing any make-up. Even so, that does not in any way excuse the actions of the homosexual man who saw her walking past the window of the gay bar he was in and, mistaking her for a teenage boy, went out and dragged her into a...

Should Hunting be legal

NoahMuns
witherpig

Hunting is an important part of my life. The reason I say this is because I live on a ranch pretty deep in the Rocky Mountains where we raise cattle, chickens, horses, and grow crops. We can't just go to a grocery store every week because the nearest store is a two hour drive away, don't get me wrong we go to the grocery store every once and a while but we mostly obtain our food from our crops, some times our cattle, our chickens, and hunting. Now you may be thinking why we would have to hunt if...

Should we ban cyclists from using the roads?

RedRum
joshbike10

Now this is a big topic in the whole of Australia and maybe even America. Should we ban cyclists from riding on the roads. Firstly, no I don't think we should. We don't have the right to say "oh cyclists should be banned" and stuff like that because if anything, we as people in cars are causing most of the catastrophe. The show "Today Tonight" on the seven network of Australia recently did a news story about the relationship between cyclists and cars and they took the story to police and the...
