I would love to debate with you. But I wonder, out all people, why do you pick me? I have just finished a debate that will scar both my opponent and me for life. In this debate, I have lashed out at the opponent and we both have made very personal comments.

I am still a beginner, so let us both take BOP.

I supposed that you asked me because of my comment on the poll, "The death penalty should be abolished on the basis that studies have shown it does not deter crime." So, I will start with an opening statement.

When one does wrong to another, the victim will very likely do some harm back. This is a result of the instinct in humanity for equality. In this case, it is known as revenge.

Therefore, is crime fancy revenge?

The federal court punishes criminals, but as far as generalization goes, the judge was never hurt by the criminal. So, there must be some exception if this statement is true.

Just fodder to start the debate with.
