Pro

Is death ethical of Muammar Gadafi ?
Or probably it should have received a just judgment.

I think that his slaughter was justified by the hatred that woke up in the rebels.
There is no limit of word.
To debate on the official version mentioned in the press of the country.
Thank you.
E.BurnumIII

Con

If your life or the lives of others are in danger and the only chance of living is to kill the person or people putting you in danger, then killing is justifiable. If a person killed or seriously harmed your relatives and friends, it would be justifiable to want to kill that person but not justifiable to do it. [1]Gaddafi was captured and later brutally murdered. Not only were none of the rebels endangered by Gaddafi at the time, but he was not given due process of law. He was accused of many bad things and then murdered. This is bad in itself but when you consider the fact that [2] many people believed Gaddafi was a hero and was murdered for trying to fix the banking system in Libya, it turns into disaster.

Pro

But his death yes is tragic but it opens the possibility that those man that they were sympathizers leave this way of thinking. And also it is necessary to understand that if they kill a brother, and your you have the assassin ahead how would you react?.

Con

It was not necessary to kill Gaddafi. He could have been imprisoned and tried for his alleged crimes and that would have effectively ended his rule as dictator of Libya. If my brother was murdered and I had the opportunity to kill his killer, I can't say that I could resist but that doesn't make it right. It is not rational to decide right from wrong by thinking about it through the perception of someone who is under extreme emotional distress.

I might accept this debate. Which side is the pro arguing? That Gaddafi's killing was justified or that it was not?

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made no case on how Gadafi's death was ethical. His only argument was in showing that most people in the place of the rebels would have done the same thing, which Con sufficiently showed to be irrelevant. Cons case was far better stated.

Reasons for voting decision: Con correctly stated that murder is not justified unless in cases of self defense. Gadaffi was a psychopath, but he should have been tried for his crimes, not shot outright.
