Jodi Arias is innocent *Fall Tier Tournament- round 2*

Wylted
TN05

I want to start by thanking BSH1 for hosting this tournament and TNO5 for participating in it.A few things to keep in mind, is that my opponent has to show that Jodi Arias is guilty of murder beyond a reasonable doubt. I don't have to prove her innocence. I only have to show reasonable doubt. I plan to do this through a self defense argument, but am not limited to self defense arguments.

Jodi Arias is innocent

I never watched the Jodi Arias trial but I've always felt like she was innocent because she is pretty. Why would that beautiful girl kill somebody out of Jealousy that's just absurd. Anyway after doing a 5 minute google search I've confirmed my suspicions. Jodi Arias is indeed innocent. I believe in the mantra innocent until proven guilty so Con has the BOP to show Jodi Arias is guilty. All I have to do is show reasonable doubt. If I show reasonable doubt than you should vote me as the winne...

should kids have the right to speak out what they think is good for them

I think they should because some parents don't know what's good for there kids. when I was 7, I was taken from my family to go to a place called foster care. then after a few rough weeks my mom surrendered her right to me. she said it would be a good idea to put me in a adoption. I thought it wasn't, and I was right. my first foster home was a living h**l because for one I had chores all day every day, like chopping wood for a wood fire and remember this was when I was 7 so it was really hard fo...

Should the death penalty be illegal in the united states?

If you read about Bundy"s life in prison, waiting nine years for his execution, you will see that the man exhausted every single legal point he and his lawyers could think of, all in an attempt to spare him execution. He "defended" himself in prison interviews by blaming pornography for causing his uncontrollable teenage libido, and for causing him to think of women as objects and not humans. He attempted to have his death sentence commuted to life without parole by explaining that it was all po...

9/11: All conspiracy theories about 9/11 are painfully false.

Zdawg
Ozzyhead

If anyone out there believes an alternate reality of the events of 9/11 and thinks they can prove it, I challenge you. If you believe the US government was behind it, it was a controlled demolition, there were no planes, it was a space beam, Larry Silverstein did it, or it was done so we could go to war in the middle east, or any other crazy theory, please prove it....
