I think that if death row inmates want to, they should be allowed to participate in gladiator battles. They are going to die anyway so if they choose, they can fight to the death. Whichever inmate wins would face the next one until there is another champion and it would just keep going on. It could even be televised as a sport.

Con

Death row inmates should not have the option to participate in gladiator battles. Killing other humans is cruel and disgusting. Gladiator battles would promote the idea of murder. Death row inmates most likely got to death row by killing people. You should not give them what they want because the do not deserve it, especially if it is killing other humans for fun. Also, it would never be on television. Watching movies where people kill each other is different than watching real people kill other living people. You would be watching living people die for your entertainment. Even the idea of humans doing gladiator fights is disgusting and unbelievable. Letting people legally end each others life for fun would be unacceptable. Only sick, disgusting, cruel, and evil people would even consider that idea.
