Should the death penalty be legal?
Debate Rounds (3)
Killing is killing, regardless of the method. All that matters is that they did it and the cause for it. It's not the eighteenth century; people don't duel with each other over honour anymore. If I stab someone and leave them to die, how is that worse than shooting them with a sniper rifle clean through the head? It's not, really. All that matters are the circumstances, such as a robbery gone wrong, a fit of passion or a mental illness.
However, some people do not do it on a purpose. They just become victims of circustances. There are also people who do it in order to defend themselves and so on. While other people do it consciously. And sometimes it seems to be like they enjoy with killing someone and mocking them. And do not you affraid of living in such society where live beasts like these? And do not you affraid of that your child or other close people may be the next victim of these "mentally ill" people. Because it has big possibility while these beasts are alive.
So you admit that most people who commit paedophilia and murder are mentally ill, yet still believe that killing them is the best option. That's just barbarism. If they are mentally ill, it is not their fault that they commit crimes. But you would punish them.
