Takaakiishikawa

Con

I am personally against death penalty because of :

It is the decision made by the state to be killing someone and the state to be making this decision.
And I believe it all comes from government's revenge.
the revenge creates a negative spiral cycle of another revenge.
It is almost impossible to measure the justice and what is right or wrong based on the activity.

For those reasons, Im against it
Otto_Hasenkamp

Pro

I accept.
I am personally for death penalty because of:

-It serves as a warning to future criminals. There's been thousands of cases where criminals stopped doing whatever they were doing since they preferred that to dying.
-It's effective. It's way cheaper to produce one lethal inyection than food, water and entertainment for a prisoner for the rest of his life.
-In most cases, it's moral. Some crimes such as child rape give prisoners a bad reputation and even get them killed.
