    Inmates on death row cost the state more money with constant appeals then they would if they spent their life in prison.

    First you should look into how many criminals are sentenced to death vs. how many actually receive it. In addition, how long do they sit on the row, and how much does this cost? How many who are originally sentenced to death later have it commuted to another sentence?

    If you choose to defend death sentence, be prepared to counter these arguments;

    The death sentence serves as a deterrent to crime.
    Murderers will only kill again.

    If you choose to oppose death sentence be prepared to counter these arguments;

    It is inhumane to kill another for killing.
    The death sentence does not serve as a deterrent to crime.
    Death row costs more than life sentences.

    I don't know enough about American politics regarding the death penalty to give you any pointers... but since this thread is also now about people's opinions on the death penalty, I'm for a Canadian death penalty.

    However, kept to the [impossible to be perfect] confines of only executing the very worst. Save the needle for the serial killers (Willy Pickton), the mass and gruesome murderers, the national traitors (within an equally imaginary lines of, "only the real bad ones.") Basically, only kill the absolute worst. So that means sparing some guy who shot a 7-11 clerk. He'd get life - no parole. Even if it costs lots (we're all dirty pinko Socialists here in BC. We're used to shelling out tons for other people.)

    The core principle is 'that there are some people who really need to be killed off.' Admit it. There's some people that, should they disappear, the world would be a slightly better place... so why not kill them eventually?

    I oppose death penalty for the simple reason that it's too easy for the convict. I'd rather sentence him to a life in prison, having a tremendously boring and limited life for the rest of his life, being confronted with the consequences of his acts daily than electrocute him in 5 minutes and save him from a life's worth of agony.

    I don't disagree with the idea of a death penalty, it's just that ours isn't foolproof. I'd rather dangerous criminals go free than watch innocent lives ruined by a flawed, biased system.

    Ultimately, whether you think you have an opinion or not, this is a personal issue that you have to figure out for yourself. Try hypothesizing. How would you feel if a person you love was murdered? Would you want to know that whoever did it will die a dog's death after languishing for decades, or would another death just add to the cruel tragedy of the situation?

    Whatever your gut reaction is, go with it, follow that line of reasoning and write it out as you do. Google some queries based on your thoughts and use the results as a jumping point. Then you'll have a paper that wasn't torture to write and you'll be able to explain why you feel the way you do if your teacher is uppity and makes you give them a rundown of how you reached this decision.

    ???

    PROFIT!

    ok, for one we aren't doing your fucking homework for you you 12 year old piece of shit queer.

    For two, the death penalty MUST be right, because only black people get it. You need to TELL the members of your class that the death penalty is a legitimate expression of youtrage by the white community for the licentiousness of the nigger horde. Tell them that you beleive that medieval punishments should be brought back for blacks only.

    My personal feeling on capital punishment is this; make it personal again.

    If someone is sentenced to death for killing another, give the victims family the choice to kill them or show mercy, Roman emperor style. If they kill multiple people, each family gets a chance at revenge.

    Put the onus on the wronged party, and see if society doesn't improve. By making individuals responsible for their own revenge fantasies (which is really all "justice" is, state imposed revenge), society would force people to not be such massive fannies and man the fuck up.

    Thank you for our thoughts, you've all helped a lot. Actually our school hosts a county-wide (?) competition. There's going to be a so-called "American Day" on which this competition is held.
    A representative from the USA will be a member of the judges as well.
    There are three topics one can choose from:
    • Should death penalty be banned?
    • Should immigration to the US be unrestricted?
    • Can terrorism be justified?
    None of them are very close to me, that's why other's opinion might come in handy.

    Thank you for your opinion you under-educated trash who cannot even understand sentences.
    Here's a simpler form, so your not so developed can process it:
    I do not ask anyone to do my work for me, I ask for your views on this topic, therefore I'll have something to go on. Maybe using/referring to some of your ideas instead of just googling some crap that might not even be legit.

    I don't think there ever needs to be a death penalty. If somebody has committed a truly horrific crime then they'll be lynched by the people.

    Yeah. Death penalty in this case only gives the person a slight chance to get away with it. (appeals, protests, ec.)

    Are you Canadian? Why the hell are you having a fucking America Day? What the fuck did America ever do for you?

    EDIT: If American representatives are coming over, do the terrorist one, and say terrorism is always justified, and that 9/11 was a good thing.

    But, of course, you always have the worry that the person you're killing hasn't actually committed the crime.

    You're right. Sucks to be you.

    Considering terrorism is the method by which America was founded, and continues to stay in power, this would be great justice.

    Yes, I was just about to bring that up.

    Thomas Jefferson, the father of our Constitution and sampler of slave tang, believed that democracy needs subversive thinkers to stay strong. Basically, keep the system on its toes, lest it become too comfortable.

    Here's some quotes from him that might help you out.

    “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.”

    “Every generation needs a new revolution.”

    “Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny”

    I think the American judge would appreciate your honesty as long as you're polite about it and don't completely trash his country. Your consideration would show that you've put heavy thought into morally questionable topics.

    Consider arguing either side of a viewpoint and concluding that there are no easy answers, and that's why "topics like this, open discussion" are vital.

    If that's the case then, upon being sentenced to death, walk the person out of the courtroom and put a bullet through their skull.
