I absolutely think the death penalty is not okay and never will be okay no matter what somebody does. I am new to this site but if you disagree accept the debate.

Pro

The death penalty is just. And it does not matter what you think.

The death penalty is not just. The government has no right to take away anothr humans right to live. 1 in every 10 people who are given the death penalty are proven innocent after their execution. It is not okay to keep killing innocent people, or guilty people.

Prove capital punishment is unjust?

And government has a duty to take life when justice demands it, just like they can take your freedom and your property.

And no, everyone put to death was found guilty of their peers. That is all that matters. This silly claim is not an arguement against capital punishment, but for anarchy.

That was the dumbest thing I have ever read. We base everything on our thoughts. For example, you believe the death penalty is just, as do I. Therefore, you are using your thoughts to form your opinion.

Is this fool really that obtuse? Con based his opposition to capital punishment on his thoughts. I do not base my approval of capital punishment on my thoughts. Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.

you take a life for personal gain you give up your own life. that is just. killing as a punishment for any other crime is wrong. The punishment MUST make the scales of justice even and should deter future crimes.

ViceRegwnt, please explain how you rationally know, "it does not matter what you think", rather than stating it as fact.
