Why do you disagree with the death penalty it is clearly the easiest way to stop crime and just out of curiosity does your state have the death penalty and i beleive that England should have the death penalty. Whats your belief. It will reduce crime rates. what do you have to say?

Dear Proby, I am not going to debate this topic with you in a traditional voting style format. You simply asked me why I don't believe in the death penalty, so I will answer your question. I am not going to try to convince the viewers or you what is right, so theres no need in voting. Death as a punishment is very severe, and I am a Christian, so I do not believe in killing people, and I do believe in forgiveness. The best solution is to lock them up and let God deal with them once they die.

Proby hasnt been on here in 6 days, so thats probably why he didnt post back, seeing as he set the response time for 15 minutes. So I will take this time to answer his question about NC. North Carolina has executed 44 people, I think, that might be a few numbers off. There are also like 100-something people on death row as of recently. I think it might be in the 140s.

Alright I answere all his questions, and remember this is not a traditional style debate, especially since Proby didnt have the chance to post a single argument, but feel free to vote if you want to. Oh and the exact numbers are 43 executed, 173 on death row. Goodbye

Since whoever has decided to give me a nickname I will do the same and just call him Man Nuts for short. Man Nuts did not actually read the debate. I admit I have no valid points, because I just stated my reason for why I did not believe in it. Thats all Proby asked, why I dont believe in it. Remember that I said theres no need in voting and it wont be a traditional voting style debate. A big Thank You to Man Nuts for always keeping it professional

Nether of them has many any real points. Proby has just basically stated his position, but not why he is right. Featherboy has just said that in his religion it shouldn't happen, but this is HIS religion and does not apply to everyone. Good luck to both :)

Oh man Feather brought the bible into it. Doesn't the bible say an "Eye of an Eye".
I dont know who i should vote for.
I'll just do as feather said and not vote.

First of all debates should be based on facts not opinions so when you say "I Believe" you just ruined everything for a fact based debate.
