Should kids (12 and under) have a cell phone?

TheBlackDragon04
Miriam14

Kids should not have a cell phone, because they are traveling into a era that they do not fully understand. They will be immature with it, and not actually use it for any emergencies. Think about it for a second. A maniac/raper is chasing you with a knife. While you are running for your life, do you really have time to call 911. No! Because you are trying to get out of there! Let me give you another situation. You just got into a severe car accident, would you call 911 or home to get help? Well,...

I recently debate this topic with N7. (1) As is was my first debate and I am working to impove I would like to try my hand at this topic again. I did make a subtle change.

I am representing the Pro, I believe that girls should be allowed to wear leggings in school. My opponent would be saying that girls should not wear leggings to school. There will be five rounds. First off I would just like to say one thing, leggings make up 90% of my pants/shorts. I wear leggings all the time, there is nothing wrong with leggings. They are super comfortable. I hate pants because they are often stiff and I especially don't like the seam on the crotch, also for comfort reason...

In the prisons and jails of today's world, money runs everything and can get you whatever you want. There have been many stories told that there was a guard that turned his/her back to rape or assault because the rapist/ assaulter paid off the guard. There are also many cases where the guard says he just doesn't care or for the inmate to stand up and fight (no matter how much smaller the inmate may be) and that is completely counterproductive to the system. Inmates are put in jail because they c...
