There should be a death penalty.
First round is acceptance, second, third, and fourth are debate.
Let the debate begin!

Resolution

There should be a death penalty.

Bop is shared.

Definitions

I shall provide definitions, as the instigator failed to do so himself.

death penalty - "The punishment of execution, administered to someone legally convicted of a capital crime."

Debate Structure

The instigator has already provided the debate structure. I don't intend to change it. I'm only organizing it for newcomers to understand more easily.

R1 - Terms and Acceptance
R2 - Proposals and Rebuttals, if Con wishes
R3 - Rebuttals and Further Proposals, if either Pro or Con wishes
R4 - Rebuttals, Further Proposals from Pro, if he wishes, and Conclusion from Con, as he wishes

Let's begin!
Debate Round No. 1

Barcafan99 forfeited this round.
Wartek

Con

My opponent has forfeited the previous round. I'm not sure if he wishes to , or will, continue, as he has not gone online for four days. The first round was only for acceptance for the opponent, me, to clarify that I accept all terms, leaving me no room to make excuses when rules are infringed, and for the instigator to propose an argument or two for his side first. Therefore, I will not make my opening arguments this round.

Please do not take this as a forfeit.

I think both of you should read a book by Albert Camus called The Stranger.

Barcafan99, resolutions aren't necessarily agreed upon by its writer. For instance, some instigate debate challenges as Con, implying that they are against the topic according to the title. That's why I wrote, "there should be a death penalty," as the resolution.

And now that you're online, can you please post your opening arguments? I've been waiting quite a while now.
