Introduction Briefly introduce the man in an Illinois prison and explain that he was released only days before his impending death because DNA evidence (not available when he was convicted), clearly established his innocence. A statement of your topic and your specific stand on the topic: “My speech today is about the death penalty, and I am against it.” Introduce your credibility and the topic: “My research on this controversial topic has shown me that deterrence and retribution are central arguments for the death penalty, and today I will address each of these issues in turn.” State your main points. “Today I will address the two main arguments for the death penalty, deterrence and retribution, and examine how the governor of one state decided that since some cases were found to be faulty, all cases would be stayed until proven otherwise.” Body Information: Provide a simple explanation of the death penalty in case there are people who do not know about it. Provide clear definitions of key terms. Deterrence: Provide arguments by generalization, sign, and authority. Retribution: Provide arguments by analogy, cause, and principle. Case study: State of Illinois, Gov. George Ryan. Provide an argument by testimony and authority by quoting: “You have a system right now…that’s fraught with error and has innumerable opportunities for innocent people to be executed,” Dennis Culloton, spokesman for the Governor, told the Chicago Tribune. “He is determined not to make that mistake.” Solution steps: National level. “Stay all executions until the problem that exists in Illinois, and perhaps the nation, is addressed.” Local level. “We need to encourage our own governor to examine the system we have for similar errors and opportunities for innocent people to be executed.” Personal level. “Vote, write your representatives, and help bring this issue to the forefront in your community.” Conclusion Reiterate your main points and provide synthesis; do not introduce new content.
