The Death Penalty for the guilty

Mopi
FantumHeist

Right, I'll be going against why there should be no death penalty for the guilty.1)Firstly, it goes agaisnt the very law of Right to protection of life, by awarding a person the death penalty, we ourselves are violating the law and a violation of law is not acceptable2) Its does not teach the guilty anything, if you look at it. The death penalty, the person just dies there is no learning and no going through pain and realizing the mistake they've made, wehreas...

Domestic violence shelters needed for men and their children.

johnelmy

Domestic violence is a human problem, not a gender problem. Randomized sociological survey data consistently shows men account for at least half of domestic violence victims (in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships), as well as one-third of victims who are physically injured, one-fourth of victims who call police and one-tenth of victims who seek shelter services (even with virtually no outreach or referrals). Male victims report it less than women, making oft-cited crime data misleading...

Chinese people who eat dogs have the right to do so

smithy1

In the United States, dogs are viewed as family and have a special role in many lives. Most people would find the idea of consuming a dog (as one would eat cow or chicken) repugnant. In certain parts of China, people buy dogs to eat (let me be clear that I am not generalizing this act to all Chinese people, only a small minority eat dogs and it is frowned upon for the most part). My argument is that they have the right to do so. It is prima facie morally permissible to eat dogs. Obviously, if a...

Cops should be allowed to have high IQs

http://www.mintpressnews.com/can-someone-be-too-smart-to-be-a-cop/192106/ It's no mystery that cops are idiots (average IQ of barely over 100) but I see no reason why that should be the case. Smart people should be allowed to be cops also. The resolution is as stated in the debate's headline....

Racism reflects the truth

Credence
JayConar

I do not agree that racism is morally right, but it is founded upon the truth. I will use African Americans as an example. One may believe that a person having black skin is also lazy, aggressive, poor or stupid. In fact a person having black skin may in fact be lazy, aggressive, poor, or stupid. It is also true that a person having white skin may in fact be lazy, aggressive, poor, or stupid. The point I'm trying to make is that it is not the color of the skin that causes one to be la...
