Con

I feel that the death penalty should be abolished.

Pro

I think that the death penalty shall not be abolished because if you raped, killed, or did so much harm to somebody else, then you deserve to not live on this Earth anymore. If somebody killed your mom or best friend, would you want them dead?
I would.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

I get what you are saying, but if a man had raped or murdered my family, I personally would not want that person dead. I would want that person to stay and rot in jail. Living with the crime he had committed for the rest of his life. I would want that person to be sentenced to life in prison. Plus it is an eye for an eye. He killed someone, so someone kills him, so who will kill the other person. It is a never ending circle. Plus it is very expensive to pay for the death penalty.

Regarding lethal injection, does the prisoner really get the point? Haha... Get it? Point? Ok....
Well, the man could also escape prison if he killed or raped somebody! I would rather feel safe from harm because there would be a 0% chance of him coming back to get me! But, in jail instead of suffering, he could becoming up with a mater escape plan!

Con

Well if he was sentenced to life in prison, he wouldn't get out. Plus would you want to give that person the relief of killing him. I personally woud want him to suffer.
