I feel that every state should have capitol punishment for certain crimes. If you take a life (or many) we should take yours.
Stephen_Hawkins

Con

I accept the debate, if we assume the following:

1 - We assume that we are talking about a modern country taking Capital Punishment

2 - Capital Punishment is done in controlled conditions, in the system it is currently employed in the USA.

3 - We have no geographic leanings.

Death penalty is a punishment of execution upon another person.

If your gunna try and fight against the death penalty you will win everytime. Plan and simple money,A death role convict can appeal and appeal tell he is satisfyed and its more in more time. As we the tax payers keep payin on him a death role inmate cost 4 to 5 times more then a person takin a life sentence cause of the lawyers.
