Child molesters should be tortured to death and die the most painful and agonizing death possible. That's all
Logical-Master

Greetings.

I'd like to thank my opponent for starting this debate. For those not familiar with my understanding of debate, you're free to read my profile. With that said, let us proceed:

The information in my opponent's opening argument is quite brief. All he says is the child molesters should be tortured to death and die the most painful and agonizing death possible. That is all. Notice how my opponent provides no premises to support his claim; notice how my opponent does not tell you WHY child molesters deserve such cruelty. An argument cannot exist without logical premises, so there's no reason to consider what he has stated in round 1.

Now I will tell you why child molesters should NOT be tortured to death for the crime of molesting:

Although molesting is a pretty terrible crime, molesting does not involve anything that it homicidal. Therefore, the argument that the loss of one life justifies taking the life of another (in the sense of what is advocated for the death penalty) cannot even be introduced here (not that I am in any way advocating validity of that argument here). Child molesters do deserve retribution, but definitely not a death penalty ( an inhumane one at that).

This is the only reason I will provide in this round. I'll add more to (and clarify if needed on) my argument in round 2 (even if my opponent chooses not to do the same).

My opponent does not address my argument and suggest that he is conceding this debate in round 2.

Anyway, as for that extra clarification I said I would deliver, I suppose I will provide it.

Specifically look at definition #2. In the US, Statutory rape comes to mind. In other words, even if a child (perhaps 16 years old) consents to having sexual relations with an adult (perhaps 22 ears old), it is still considered to be child molestment in legal terms. This is mostly due to legal complications. The main thing to keep in mind is that even if both parties want and accept what they are doing, the adult would still be subject to death of the worst kind. Does this crime really warrant this kind of punishment even if there are no effects on the level of a life being lost? Surely not. Time in prison would be the most justified punishment. At least then, lives can be preserved. Not to mention that the fact that time in prison can help reform a sex offender.

Do you really not know if I concede based on what you have read so far? (25 characterts) (25 characters)
Logical-Master

Over the years, I've met alot of debaters who would secretly insist otherwise. In any case, my opponent has not responded to any of my arguments, thus he does concede. Furthermore (and as I've pointed out), my opponent has no argument, but merely a baseless assertion in round 1. Therefore, I urge that you vote against his case.

Thank you.

Freeman, You are new, none of the debates I have are accurate when it comes to votes, I get vote bombed constantly in both directions I have been at the top of the list and the bottom of the list 3 times. So don't think you have some sort of never before heard intellectual insite when it comes to my voting record.

Nothing compares to child molestation? Self absorbed. Narrow minded, I would not be surprised if you couldnt connect to people that easily. Try to understand how others feel.Change your opinion? No,no need because apparently most people already know what is right and what is wrong. Stand alone, maybe the few of you can drive the fanatacism up against the solids in the big seats but majority and morality knows no bounds and most people find it wrong to take a life when the victims actual life, not the life they could have had but their actual human life has not been depleted and sent to the judgement gates.

You keep making comparisons that don't compare to a child molester in my book I'll say it again "Only Child Molesters" should be tortured to death. They torture and kill children's souls and forever rob them of their innocence in child hood. I never said I was god you did. Do you share power? No, It's called mandatory sentencing guide line. I never said we should be vigilantes. An accident is an accident It says what it says, it was never thought of or intended. It lies with the parent? Little children are often kidnapped or told their parents will be killed by the child molester if they say anything. Molesting a child is never and I repeat never an accident. Child molesters plan what they do for weeks or even months to molest children so they can get away with it. No sir, I think you don't get it at all. I'm right about everything in my opinion you just don't like the cure. That's OK to.

wow. o.k you are just not getting it are you? say I agree with you. lets torture and kill child molesters I mean it is equal to what they are doing to the children, toruring and killing them, OH wait maybe not as equal but we are doing it for a just cause so its ok if that child molester tortured that child and we double or quadruple the standards just because they were wrong and we are gods who choose who lives or dies. then are we fair gods? do we share some of this power with other folks or no? well they havent been molesting children so they must be fine and dandy. Yes you good lad you havent molested any children, go ahead and decide a law. " My brother got beat up in the store last night when some mexicans robbed the place. I think all people who rob stores deserve to get their legs torched their fingers chewed off by rats and killed." It SHALL BE DONE you there nice lady, most women dont child molest so you have got to be in the percentage that doesnt. you are a fine specimen, make a law "well this black man killed my husband, I think all murderers deserve to be beaten every day for 2 years and then killed." IT SHALL BE DONE You there I know you from down the street you would never molest a child make a law " my sisters were killed in a car accident! I hate people who drive drunk, If police catch drunk drivers they need to remove all their sexual organs and chop off their legs let them feel shame for three years and then be killed" and so on and so on. Not going to stop because the people arent going to stop. torture is not the answer. That is my only point. it lies with the parent. If i dont want my kids molested i will teach them in a way to protect themselves and to have me or my wife step in and finish whoever attempts. not go on a mad killing spree. people dont teach their kids properly anymore. so their kids get molested. If they were taught better it would be less likely of a chance that they would put themselves in that situation.

Also the fact that you compare ridiculuos misdemeanor crimes such as petty theft and down loading music to molesting a child is stupefying to me.
