Amanda Knox is more likely innocent than guilty


The evidence that places Amanda (AK) at the crime scene (specifically Meredith's bedroom) is the so-called double DNA knife. The Conti-Vecchiotti Report ordered by Judge Hellman introduces reasonable doubt as to the reliability of this evidence which means that AK cannot be definitively placed at the crime scene. If she was not at the crime scene during the murder, she could NOT have committed murder. Round 1: Acceptance Only Round 4: Closing/No new arguments...

Does the "occupy" protest movement have a clear and common message


Occupy protests lack common/coherent message "Occupy protests need to focus on coherent demands." Student Life Staff Editorial. October 17th, 2011: "The protests have been linked and compared to the tea party movement, due to their similar grassroots nature and extreme ideological stances. However, the tea party does have a centralized message, which the "Occupy" protests lack. The tea party is about reducing taxes and cutting spending to make government smaller.

FNC (Fox News) showed Obama's address to Congress about his supposed health care plan


I have heard many uninformed liberals claim that FNC [1] did not show Obama's address to Congress that was supposed to be regarding his health care plan. This is a blatant lie. I would like anybody who believes that FNC didn't cover it to accept this debate and show that they didn't. [1]

If you have been living under a rock for the past couple months, this might help: Now, for this debate, you get two for the price of one.

The U.S. Government Ought Not Sell the UnaBomber's Possessions

pcmbrown Resolved: The U.S. Government ought not to sell the Unabomber's possessions without permission from the Unabomber. I just saw this on CNN and was wondering if anyone would like a friendly debate on the subject. Be forewarned, this debate isn't about semantics or legal precedent. I'm looking for a debate on morals - basically: should the government be able to sell a criminal's possessions without permission? If either side...

Jessica's Law


Jessica's law forces every single person charged with brutal child molestation into one of two categories. Mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison, or innocent. The reality is that most of these people probably deserve something in the way of 7-15 years depending on all the factors, which is what they were getting prior to Jessica's Law.
