The death penalty should remain an active for of punishment for those that commit crimes where the death penalty is the is the consequence. . In order to receive the death penalty, certain criteria has to be met. Each individual in the United States has been given prior knowledge about the death penalty. Since the death penalty was re-introduced, there has been some complications with the death penalty, like insane people on death row. Knowledge has increased the United States, yielding an increase in the actual people to stay on death row. It does get frustrating with this advance in knowledge. This advance does leave actual individuals that has been punished to death that has been released from the death penalty, as well as society wondering about policy and procedure. Although this has happen, for one to actually receive the death penalty, there has to be a conscious reason. Increase in knowledge with Psychologists and Scientists have made the death penalty fair.
I accept the challenge. I will argue that the Death Penalty (Capitol Punishment) should be abolished.
It is an arcane punishment that makes the government a possible murderer of innocent citizens. It is a noneffective method of deterrence for would be criminals. It is irreversible and permanent end to a life, leaving the possibility for true justice (for the victim, the accused and for the potential true criminal) from every coming to fruition. Life in prison is more cost effective. Life imprisonment without possibility of parole is sufficient to eliminate the threat of a vicious criminal from society. From a moral perspective, murder is wrong this is true for everyone, not just individuals but governments as well.
I welcome my opponents talking points, good luck and I look forward to a good debate!
