Debate Round No. 1

I believe the death penalty should still be available as a sentence for criminals. I believe this because if you are a criinal and you know there is a possibility you will be sentanced to death and you are not ready to die, there is a likely chance you will think twice. This being said the criminal then might choose to do a crime of lesser scale, or completely scrap the crime and not do it at all. If people know they might die because of commiting a crime they might not do it so the death penalty has leverage over people who just don't want to die. This ends up keeping the crime rate down, which creates safer communities and envorinments for our children to live and grow up in. If I find statistics that death penalty impact crime rates I will post it in the next round.

Sorry for my previous spelling mistakes, I was not paying attention. I feel death penalty should remain available for criminals who commit very serious crimes such as murder, terrorism and other things. It would make sence to keep it because some people take too many lives (even one life is one too many) and they deserve to have their life taken, if they think taking somebody elses life is okay. Good luck to my opponent, Please vote responcibly.
