Topic: Should Capital Punishment Exist?


Pro: lombozo
Con: chissler

An opening statement, two rebuttals each, and a closing statement.

We ask that we have no time restraints on individual posts, as there are some extenuating circumstances in this scneario. We are interested in having some judges look in on the Debate as well.

Opening & Closing statements should be no longer than 2500 characters, and the rebuttals should be no longer than 6000 characters. (If that is permittable)

Only one image can be posted through out the whole debate, per member of course.

I believe that should do it. Again, my worthy opponent lombozo is restricted in his posting abilities, so a time restraint on posts would not be feasible.

Hopefully we can see this up and running asap.

I've prepared your debate thread here:

Head-2-Head: Should Capital Punishment Exist?

Congratulations on being the first!

Please review the terms for the debate, and let me know if you need any changes before starting.

We're learning as we go, so please don't sweat anything.

Although the language is rather formal, if there are any problems, we'll work them out in a fair and reasonable fashion.

Also, remember that the debate is not timed, so no hurries, no worries.

Have fun!
