Will keeping a day for all crimes to be legal, decrease the crime rate ?
Debate Rounds (3)
Its gonna be too bad too sad situation...
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.
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

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.
