Obviously not ! The society doesnt keep hold of criminals.. Majority of crimes happens when a person is aggressive, revenge etc... It all depends on a persons mood when it comes to do a crime. If we make a day for crimes, just imagine all criminals will be set free.. just imagine how many people will commit crimes... so many people will be killed , and will be injured terribly. It all depends on the security !! The security will be weakened and the criminals can do whatever they want.. Just visualize a place where all criminals are set free for whatever they want to do !. It is a possibility that our country will not be strong !! That one day will create so many disasters and risk people's life...
Its gonna be too bad too sad situation...


I accept.

Crime: an action or omission that constitutes an offense that may be prosecuted by the state and is punishable by law.

In a situation where:
1. One one designated day all crime is legal
2. On all other days any crime is punishable by death

The crime rate would go down for two main reasons

1. Criminals would not be committing crimes for fear of death every other day.
2. On the day where crime is legal, no crime would take place because it cannot be punishable by law, thus not fitting the definition of the word "Crime".

In conclusion, much less crime would be committed because of fear or it not being a crime.
Good luck to my opponent.
Debate Round No. 1


Crime can be of many types... How can you start killing people for any crime they do ? Suppose if someone shoplifts then are we going to give him death sentence? What problem are you trying to solve? How many people are you going to kill ? It is going to be a similar condition .. Crime isn't a hobby that people want to do .. it is a way of relieving their mind by killing someone ...
Its like you give poison to someone and then take him to the hospital ...
Even if you give a day for all illegal stuff, what message will you be giving to the society? Are you keeping your country safe for a day ?

in Conclusion, its better to keep things how it is


It is much better to keep things how they already are. The point I'm making is that with the correct measures and stipulations in place crime will go down if we have a day for crime to be legal. This debate is if the crime rate will go down, not if it's better for our society. People will not commit crimes under threat of death if they do commit them. That will decrease the crime rate.

It would depend on how harsh the punishment for crimes are every other day.

I'll accept this if the crime rate doesn't count on the day everyone is allowed to commit crimes.

Reasons for voting decision: I give JAG the convincing argument source on the grounds that having no basis for restricting criminals does not decrease the violence, but it does decrease the statistics. They actually made a law that says you can't be tried for a crime that isn't considered a crime when you committed the act called ex post facto.
