it is legal

I am confussed, the basis I am working off is poor, so I am just assuming that I am against the death sentence.

The death sentence should not be in practice because the law has sentance many men and woman who have not commited a crime to death, which is unjust. The only solution for this is to not allow the practice of the death sentence to be carried out. Instead only inprisonment should be carried out, for at least it would make the standards of men more just.

The death sentence is also illegal is some countries and states. Just in case people vote for Con because there are countries and states which the death sentence is legal. My point remains.

What in the world is with you people with the votes? It just goes to show that my other debates might actually be rather good and people are just voting against me for the hell of it.

When a person commits a serious, majorly life altering crime (i.e. murder, rape, plunder, excessively violent acts) for reasons other than for the benfit of others, they lose all rights to humane treatment and have, essentially, become animals (in the connotation of a despicable being) and shouldn't be left alive to taint the world with their miserably evil existence. However, if it is a petty crime, then they deserve to be extorted for manual labour resources.
