I believe that the death penalty is important in America. It's not like they dole it out to every person who commits a crime. The people who are put to death are people who deserve it.

In my opinion life is the greatest gift, and therefore no one should be able to decide if someone lives or someone dies. If you kill someone you deny that person a chance to redeem themselves and repent from their crimes

You have presented some arguments which are difficult to rebut. (sarcasm)

As you have presented no points I will reserve my arguments, as the instigator has made the tactical decision to not say anything, but in case the instigator is planning on forfeiting the next round I will warn him/her:

I will present my arguments in the last round, and nor you or I will have the chance of rebutting which saddens me as I love rebutting. I hope that you understand and post an argument. :D

I honestly am really disappointed. I would have hoped that you would have not forfeited third last round and we could have had a little debate. I honestly do not understand why you've started this debate if your just going to forfeit every round.

Now I will post my main arguments:

Firstly, I would like to point out that, if you send someone to their death, you are no better than them, as you are killing them as they killed other people, and so you have become what you were trying to fight.

Secondly, there is an alternative to death penalty. I have no problem with life sentence and forced work, as it does not kill but still punishes the person.

I would have liked to have a debate instead of a monologue, but if you don't have the courage to continue the debate you started, there is nothing I may do.
