Since you are pro, I am assuming your are for less strict border patrol. This would be an unintellegent idea for many reasons.

First off, as you probably already know, North and South Korea are very different in terms of government. North Korea has a dictatorship while South Korea is a republic with a president. The border divides the Korean peninsula into two equal parts. By having strict border patrol, it can be insured each side gets a fair share of land and doesn't try to take over the other half.

Second of all, without this strict border, it can be assured chaos would follow. North and South Korea are not friendly with each other, and there has been many incidents of violence between the two. Several times, infiltrators from North Korea were spotted and killed by South Korean soldiers. On March 24th of last year, a North Korean drone was found trying to take pictures of important military buildings in South Korea, and another drone crash landed a week later. Without this strict border, who knows what would happen! Many civilians have been shot and killed by both sides, getting spotted trying to escape to the other side. If the border was less strict, It would be easier to do this and more people would attempt to do so, thus resulting in more deaths. Not to mention it would be easier for troops from both side to interact, leading to skirmishes and more violence and death between the two countries. Of course, this could lead to war and bombings, etc. Having a less strict border patrol would be like a domino effect, spiraling into a much larger problem. Overall, it would not be a smart idea. The strict border is there for a reason.

Ok,now during my research it explains that in South Korea..when people cross the border line illegally

A punishment is given but most of these punishments are very violent and cruel. For example if parents or parent are caught trying to get across the punishment is that the guards kill the adults child right in front of their eyes as a punishment. And another is that people are placed in camps as a punishment and what happens in there is not good. Women who are pregnant that are placed in the camps have to have a forced abortion...and sometimes a guard will be placed in front of the stomach and kicks the women in the stomach so hard that the child dies. Most punishments are very wrong and cruel. I'm only saying that they should make the punishments less violent cruel and villainous.

I agree that the punishments should be less strict, though that isn't what the debate is asking. At least with a strict border these harsh punishments will happen less often because it is harder to get out in the first place. There's not really anything we can do to change the minds of the Korean governments.

Since my opponent has forfeited, I will not put forth any new information. Perhaps you should've made the debate topic more specific?
