The death penalty is sick. If you are trying to teach the world not to kill there own. If you want to get that message across then you have to practice what you preach! How are you going to say don't kill and then do that mortal sin right in front of your country! Many reasons that the death penalty is still legal in countries is because there isn't enough money to keep these notorious criminals alive so why not kill them right? WRONG! 130 people have been released from death row with proof of there innocence. what about the people who were inoccent but not so lucky? Are they jut forgotten about? Think about them too.

Assuming that this is the acceptance round, I accept. By the way, I don't want the government going around willy nilly killing convicts. I feel it is justified that if a criminal is a mass murderer, they deserve to die.

So, if you want to show the world you are against kidnapping, you cannot put kidnappers in prison. Prison holds them against their will, just like kidnapping. Also we cannot have fines imposed for financial fraud.
