The death penalty SHOULD be legalised, Because innocent people lose their lives for the benefit of others, so why not? If people are strong enough to kill, etc. Then they shouldn't be too surprised for it to happen to them, In society today, too many people get away with crude things, and It's time something Is done about it. But If It was brought back, the people In charge of this should have to be extra careful that they catch the right person.
Just as my opponent said, "the people in charge of this should have to be extra care that they catch the right person." There wouldn't have to be that kind of caution if there was no death penalty. We could put them in prison and if they were later found to be innocent, then they could be let free and the person guilty would be put in prison. But, you can't reverse the death of an innocent. True, innocent people got hurt, but we must not only follow man's laws, but God's laws as well. There is a greater law than the death penalty's law that says that "Thou shalt not kill" (Exodus 20:13). It isn't morally right for us to do and those who perform the death penalty can feel guilty for the person's death. We don't want to enforce that, do we???
It Isn't about 'enforcing' this, It's about getting justice, the individual who would take the duty of putting the killer, etc, to their fate would be right to do so. And the people who do that are by law a loud to, It's their job, so In certain context, It Is fair and shouldn't make them out to be killers, people allow them to kill others, but the actual killers don't get the same, and too right. It Isn't about who would kill the person, It's about what that person done to deserve It.
Is justice really death? Some criminals want death, so you'd basically be giving them what they want if you kill them. Why would you want that? What is true justice? Is it an eye for an eye? Because, if so, "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" (Mahatma Gandhi). Also, who would we hire to kill the criminals? If they volunteer, they look like blood thirsty killers. If we force them to, we look like we are bad humans who are forcing people to kill other people. Only 8 states allow for the death penalty to be active. Isn't that enough death in the United States alone? Every day, people are dying from ISIS, which is basically permitting the death penalty, and aren't we trying to stop them? If so, we are being the worst of hypocrites.
People are given choices on how to die; according to DeathPenalty, there's death by lethal injection (34 states+exceptions), electrocution (8 states), gas chamber (4 states), hanging (3 states), and firing squad (2 states). Doesn't this statistics show that our government is messed up already? Capital Punishment is ruining countries and their reputations.
