The Cincinnati Zoo is allowed to shoot the gorilla to preserve a human life.

DebateWonder
SirSocrates

This is referring to the shooting of an endangered gorilla to protect the boy. I believe that the zoo did what was necessary to save the child's life, even though it is tragic that the gorilla died. I thank my opponent for joining this debate, and I will be eager to debate him/her. Rules: 1. No forfeiting. 2. No swear words....

Don't you think the Boston Bombing was over hyped?

TheAdiDebater
NFLMember

First of all, I understand and acknowledge that the Boston bombing was a terrible event which never should have occurred. But don't you ever stop and think that a big deal is being made out of something substantially smaller? People were even thinking this could be compared to 9/11. On the same day 42 people die in an earthquake in Iraq. But does that receive even a tenth of what the Boston bombings received. No. This can't be defended....

An Outside Intruder Did Not Kill JonBenet Ramsey

ShabShoral
warren42

This debate is for BSH's tournament. I will be defending the idea that an outside intruder (anyone other than the parents or brother of the victim) did NOT kill JonBenet Ramsey. As such, I assume the full BOP. I must prove, beyond a REASONABLE doubt, that one of JonBenet's mother, father, and brother was responsible for her death. Standard format....
