Con

The Death Penalty is cruel and inhumane. Criminals do not get a change of thinking about the crime they have committed. They get to escape the pressure of others breathing down on them. Whether or not they murder someone or not, they are still human and should be treated like one.

Pro

life isnt fair. life sucks. if you hurt someone, or kill someone, the same should be done for you. if someone kills your child, would you let them sit in a nice cell, with 3 meals a day, books, and activities? it sounds like a vacation to me. you would want them to be punished.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

At least they have time to feel sorry for themselves. While they feel sorry for themselves they will think about what they have done. Killing them makes for no real punishment because they do not have to suffer by the fact that they did kill someone.
