Con

Resolution: The death penalty should never be allowed as a form of punishment.

capital punishment 
–noun
punishment by death for a crime; death penalty.
rogue

Pro

I believe the death penalty is necessary in some cases. In some cases, the murderer will never stop killing. There is nothing that they will not to do get out of jail and kill again. If the prisoner is clearly a serial killer or is clearly mentally insane(sometimes serial killers are declared sane), it is safer for the rest of us if the person is dead. Why should the government spend tons of money on making sure the dangerous person is kept bound when there is always a chance they will get out instead of just killing them? We are wasting time and money that way, plus it is dangerous for the rest of us. If they do more bad than good in being alive after committing a crime then they should be killed. Most prisoners are not dangerous or insane enough not to be able to do good things for our country like make license plates or doing other work like that. The prisoners that are too dangerous to do those things should just be taken out of the way as a danger to society.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

Pro, we're arguing the same thing.

I'm not arguing against the death penalty. I'm arguing against the resolution which is against the death penalty.

Nice argument though.
rogue

Pro

aaiiee. It says up there the resolution is "death penalty". You are con, therefore it would make sense that you are against the death penalty. Then I thought your argument was "the death penalty should never be used as a form of punishment". That was very confusing.

I don't think so. Oh well. Let's hope no one votes. Sorry.

I am now utterley convinced rogue does not over debates when she accepts them.

The resolution was clearly stated in round 1

You're probably going to say you should have won this debate too, even though you didn't read the resolution presented by the instigator.

Reasons for voting decision: You know what, it's Pro's fault the debate was misread. The Resolution was in R1, which Pro didn't read. It wasn't as if Con's R1 was long and cryptic to read. If someone disagrees, they can counter my pt to Con.

Reasons for voting decision: This was close, rogue used a lot of words but JustinBieber had excellent use of paragraphs. Rogue countered with excellent use of onomatopoeia but JustinBieber returned with repeated question marks. Rogue has a penetrating stare which attempts to bore into your soul and Bieber has that vacant look of a zombie who is very hungry and eats green berets for breakfast. 3:3 solid tie.
