While I take no pleasure in any death and think that the taking of a human life is always a most disheartening thing, I also believe their are instances when death as a punishment is valid. When the most vile and evil of our species commit unspeakable acts against the innocent, simple imprisonment seems lacking to the senses of fairness. What I mean is that those such as serial killers, serial child molesters and those who shoot up schools, for example, have committed crimes that are so egregious and harmful to the overall wellness of our species that they deserve the maximum punishment that can be inflicted upon them, that being death. In these types of cases, I am glad we have the death penalty.

Since I don't believe in plagiarism in a situation such as this one, I shall request for this debate to be taken down even it may jeopardize my rating.

My good man, this is my argument from our debate, word for word, as others can check, in which you take the opposite position. Very disappointing that you would risk your integrity by stealing the exact response of another.
