Help with speech i have to write
    #4338897 - 06/26/05 12:28 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I have to write a speech for a class. The topic I was given was 'How to improve the american justice system'
I chose a negative stance on the death penalty because there was a lot of information on the internet about it. What I need help on is the introduction.
A part of the introduction that I have to have is called "link to the audience" where am supposed to inform the audience why they should care about my topic. I honestly can not think of a reason. Any Ideas? I'm desperate, anything half assed will work.

If you really want help with something like this, you should post this in PAL, and take one stance on the issue.  People are more likely to "help you" with your report if they think they're debunking your arguement.

Let me know if you want to move this thread.

:wink:

here is a huge list of people who have been sentenced to death but later were deemed innocent - http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/article.php?scid=6&did=109

if there are that many people who they find out in time are innocent, one might assume that there are many whom they never find out are innocent (until it is too late!).

Yes, move the thread if you think it would be a good idea.

You want people to care to about what your talking about you have to connect them to the topic and involve them. Negative stance on the death penalty is going to be mostly a human rights issues. if i were you I would start out talking about animals.

Something along the lines of if an animal bites someone or does something wrong we punish them and show them the err of their ways. In the rare case of an animal killing someone only then do we take the extreme stance of putting the animal down. From there go on to talk about how humans are not animals and how as humans we can learn to change where an animal cannot. A human can feel remorse, should we treat these people like dogs? How can we ever evolve as a specisis if we don't raise above the level of animals...


and so on, I dunno i'm pretty hungover, hopefully this at least gets you thinking
