Just seeing if this is possible. Standard definitions unless otherwise stated
Deterrence, weigh real numbers, not psychology.
12 jurors and multiple appeals check innocence.
Scholar more trustworthy, "eliminate witnesses" encouraged.
No negation to impulsiveness of people.
Chance to deter better than nothing, especially since numbers conflict. Numbers beat impulse.
con source agrees "not enough info". Too much $ cost w/ DP as well - attorney, complicated, appeals.
To value cost over justice is awful. Any debater who puts cost over justice needs to lose there.
Murder and execution aren't the same, one has jurors and due process, one is pure evil.
