The death penalty is appropriate to punish violent, career criminals; because they will continue to harm other in and out of confinement. Criminals that fall under the category of serial rapists and serial murderers. I feel that violent career criminals, even if sentenced to life, will not stop being a detriment to humanity.

Hello there, thanks for challenging me to this debate! Let's have fun with this discussion!

I do have a question though. You seem to indicate that the Death Penalty IS appropriate. However, you have taken the 'con' side of this argument titled 'The Death Penalty is an appropriate punishment for the worst criminals', meaning that you are on that side that disagrees with the Death Penalty. If this is a mistake, feel free to make a new challenge and re-challenge me so that you can be on the correct side. If not, and you just didn't type the 'not' after the 'is', then I am open to continue~

Reasons for voting decision: FAIL DEBATE, as both sides dropped out... (checking the voting period debates, from Least To Most votes. By giving this one, it won't be prioritized in the system anymore.)
