I'm going to be arguing towards the fact that the death penalty should be illegal, and the con has to argue that it should be legal.

The rules are:
First round acceptance only
The rest of the rounds play them however you want.
Looking for a fun debate, no anger.
Good Luck!

Although this argument may seem unjust or immoral, the death penalty is a necessary way to enforce justice in our modern world. Crimes such as murder or terrorism aren't ones that can be repaid with a meagre jail sentence. In Australia, the average 'life sentence' lasts 25 years on parole. in America, some murderers can be let out of prison as early as 15 years after the sentence. If you've killed someone, that's a life they will never get back. 25 years is merely a third of the average life span, 15 is a fifth. If a 20 year old were to murder someone, it is possible they would be out of jail before they are 50. Justice is not being served in the eyes of the law, despite the fact that a life sentence is supposed to last the rest of someone's life.

Death penalty has to be legal, as well as killings, as long as you have enough evidence to prove how you are the victim of the actions of the dead person, and what the dead person did to you while he/she was alive. Makes sense if you ask me.
