Ladies and gentlemen, a true tragedy took place in Korea about four days ago. A ferry ship consisting nearly 500 passengers sunk near the Jeju Island. So far, only about 150 passengers were rescued. Then what happened to rest 350 passengers? Dead. Missing. The agonizing fact in this incident is that more than half of the passengers were kids - High school students went on a field trip. Now, being sympathetic is one thing. Another thing is that we have to figure out who is responsible for this accident. The captain is responsible for this incident. Let me quickly establish a background. First of all, it was captain who ordered to turn the ship abruptly, leading to the incident. Because the ship turned abruptly, cargoes lost its balances and as a result, the ferry lost its balance as well. Secondly, as the ferry sank, captain ordered all the passengers to stay calm and stay inside their room. He ordered passengers to STAY INSIDE THEIR ROOM when water rushed inside the ferry. Why did the captain do this? The answer is simple. So he can get out of the ferry faster. Captain was the first person to be rescued. Instead of aiding all his passengers to be safe, he simply ran away. After he was rescued, he claimed that he announced that every passengers should stay inside their room just so that there won't be a chaos. "Chaos would have made me die." This is what the captain said. It is ridiculous and at the same time, unacceptable.
Now let me define the definitions. I would like to define captain as a person who is in charge of a boat and responsible for passengers' safety. I would like to define death penalty as killing a person by injecting a painless chemical.
I would like to make arguments. My first argument is that failure to become a captain. Captain abandoned the boat. This goes against the duty and the law he promised to follow. In the Korean constitution, a charger, for example pilot and captain, have to put their passengers' safety in prior to their safety. This is a job the captain chose to do and as a result, the captain should take his consequences. Captain abandoning the boat for his dear life is like a cop handing the mafia innocent people just because cops, themselves, were scared. The act a captain did is simply a joke. My second argument is that captain will die anyway. Captain is already guilty enough to go to the prison until he dies, Korean Judicial Branch reported yesterday. When captain goes to the prison, it is certain that he will beaten to death by his fellow prison mates. This fact is supported by various professionals and surprisingly, prison mates. If captain is going to die beaten up, we are doing him a favor. Despite all the sins he made, he are respecting captain's human right and putting him to death peacefully.
Captain angered and betrayed Korea. Thousands of parents are dying to see their kid alive. Captain started this tragedy and he consequently, should finish this tragedy.

Wow, you post a foggy title to a foggy debate directive and post no reasoning in the first round as you should.
