American Police are Overly Militarized

sengejuri
Mike_10-4

American Police, as most recently seen in the ongoing Ferguson, Missouri unrest, are overly militarized. BoP is shared. Overly Militarized = the employment of weapons, equipment, and tactics that are disproportionate to the threat. An overly aggressive posture that is counterproductive. Round 1 = acceptance only (no arguments) Round 2 = opening arguments (no rebuttals) Round 3 = rebuttals Round 4 = response/conclusion...

Online relationships don't work

Truth_seeker
TheShadowCupcake

I know i would've posted this when i was younger, but guess it'll have to do lol I argue that online relationships don't work for the reasons that we as humans need physical interaction (face-to-face communication, hugging, etc.) While yes, they might work for an extent, eventually, you will need to see each other in person. Online relationships of any kind can never substitute for real life relationships. Online relationships can get superficial as you both cannot know who the real person is...

Gun control in America.

I would like to debate for gun control in America. I am a firm believer that we need to work towards protecting our citizens, and this idea should outshine all else. The first round is for acceptance only please. As I know this is a very heated debate, remember to keep debates in the debate world and do not let it carry outside of that. Also, a word to voters- please try to put your bias aside and only vote for who made a better case. Thank you....

Russell Brand Is an Immature Buffoon With Unrealisitc Idealogies

Spedman
Tommy.leadbetter

While I do not like Fox News, Russell Brand's criticism of the network is laughably idiotic. When he commented on the opening statement of Judge Jeanine Pirro when she said "ISIS is a fanatical religious terrorist organization". Those words were as accurate as it gets in referring to ISIS. Russell Brand said then that "Fox News is fanatical terrorist organization and is more dangerous than ISIS". He even went on to compare the Judge to Hitler and Goebbels. Now let me ask you something: Is that...

Should social stratification exist in today's world ?

DB9KIT
blackkid

Before we get into the first debate round, my opponent is supposed to acknowledge that.. 1) ad hominem abusive (attacking persons rather than points) is prohibited here. 2) try to avoid a logical fallacy commonly known as "appeal to pity," as it doesn't make our debate logical enough. ( however, it's okay to appeal to emotions occasionally) 3) scientific evidence, such as research, studies, experiments, so on and so forth, is not necessary. (it takes too much time to do meta-analysis. We can...
