pro may start as most of the debate for me is rebuttal

Pro

Its a tough one, And it is very emotional when dealing with really serious sick crimes like murder, Or rape or mass murder, Or child molestation, Etc. But most western socieities have done away with it because it is basically cruel and unusual, We have to be better than the people who commit the crimes, But its a tough issue, I often sit on the fence myself
