UK reapplying Capital Punishment
Debate Rounds (3)
My argument against capital punishment has many points.
First, the British justice system is built on rehabilitation not retribution. The death penalty offers no chance of rehabilitation.
Second, the death penalty is against European human rights laws. Bringing it into the British justice system would have a negative impact on britains relations with Europe.
Third, there is no chance of reversal, meaning if a person is wrongly convicted after the sentence has been carried out, the victim has been unjustly murdered.
I have outlined the bases of my argument against the implementation of capital punishment and look forward to my opponents response.
First off, my arguments are not invalid, for some crimes are considered justified, depending on what the purpose of them was.
Now for my opposing reasons:
1st- Although the system is built on rehabilitation, that does not mean that they have to continue living that way. America for instance was built on war, but it does not necessarily continue to live that way.
2nd- I have no counter argument, but I must say that that is Britain's choice to make.
3rd- The death penalty is only put into action if the crime is worthy of receiving it. If the crime is minor as most crimes are, then the death penalty is not significant.

I am saying the same as I said last round.
