Hey Charles, I'd like to challenge you to this debate on capital punishment. First rounds are for acceptance. Second round is for laying out your points. The other rounds are for rebukes and rebuts.

Alright I shall now lay out my main points for the debate:

First of all, let me just say that capital punishment is not painful or cruel. We now have the capability to kill criminals using injections which are completely painless and make death quick.

Second of all, notice that even the strongest prisons can have weaknesses in them. What if a mass murderer got out and started his rampage all over again? The results would be catastrophic! Whereas if you had the death penalty, none of this will happen.

Another popular argument is over an economic stance. It takes money to keep these rapists and murderers alive in prisons. Your tax money is going to the livelihood of someone who does not deserve to live!

Furthermore, the death penalty would discourage criminals to commit crimes, the fear of death is one of the most powerful forces in the world. With the death penalty around, criminals might think twice before committing a crime.

These are my main points in support of the death penalty. I hope to hear yours.
