Police today are criticized too harshly. Many say that they are all bad "pigs" and should not be allowed to do the things that they do. 1. There are bad apples in every occupation, so a few bad times doesn't make every cop a jerk. 2. "Police are shooting people for no reason!" This quote by many anti-police supporters is very common. Police defend themselves with their guns. First, have you checked the whole story? I mean, have you checked with both sides of the argument: the victim and th...

Christmas (Pro) vs Easter (Con)

Rjupudi18
CivilianName295

THIS IS NOT A RELIGIOUS DEBATE. Do not accept if you're going to argue about which holiday has more significance as I will definitely agree that Easter is the more significant holiday in Christian dogma. This is a fun debate as to which is the better holiday from a secular perspective. No particular format. Just go with the flow....

Here is the original debate: http://www.debate.org/debates/Murder-is-Okay-under-all-circumstances/1/I would be grateful if they accepted this one more time. I look forward to this debate one more time. If my opponent wants, they may co...

Smokers should not get special breaks whilst at work

Just because a person has a bad habit or has an addiction does not mean they should be allowed to have five minute paid breaks at work whilst their non-addict colleagues must continue working, because of said habit. I am referring to smoking....

Borders and boundaries

As_A_Whole
TheDragon5

Today our world is running into these imaginary borders created by power hungry humans. I've recently started playing an online game where my team consist of members from all over our homeland , earth. We argue only about the greatness of our teams but have always made amends over heated arguments. It's only a game. A game we all love. If the Internet has done so well without borders and boundaries why can't the physical world follow suit? After all Earth is a home we all love....
