Resolved: In the United States, the principle of jury nullification is a just check on government

16kadams

This is a re-do. Terms have been agreed upon. I will just start with arguments since we're behind in the Zaradi Tournament. Premise I: What is Jury Nullification? Jury nullification occurs when a jury votes not guilty in a trial when they believe the evidence is—beyond a shadow of a doubt—proving the defendant’s guilt. This occurs when a jury member either believes the law is unjust or the law...

abortion should ge not legalize

siyara
Tadeusz

i think the abortion should be legalize because there is about 69% where most of the mothers doesn't have a comfort to give birth . so i think the abortion should be legalize because for example if there is a mother with a lesser earning and have got a devorse from his husband how can she give a birth suppose there are no good relatives also, so how can she give a birth to a child. if she thinks the child will get mentally ill she may think to give death to the child not because she doesn't love...

Are girls held to a higher standard than boys?

adroth19
Nivek

Yes, they are. Girls are held to a higher standard just because of stereotypical people from the moment they are born. The first double standard is pink vs. blue. Pink is supposed to be a girl and blue a boy but sometimes it doesnt have to work that way. Girls are allowed to dress and like the color blue as boys are pink. But all in all, girls are held to the standard where they are supposed to be perfect in the eyes of someone. Skinny, good grades, responsible, caring are just a few things that...

Do physical punishments create a good person?

DebaterOfTheMonth
Blade-of-Truth

Physical punishments such as a butt spanking or a beating does create a well mannered child. Personally, I used to get D's and F's constantly in my early life, I was always getting into trouble and causing havoc throughout my early life. My parents would also punish me physically, or as simple as taking away something that I used constantly. This greatly benefited me in so many ways. After two years of this improvement, I started making A's, B's, and C's. I felt like a much better person after t...

That is why Ebola is a good thing....

Global Warming: Climate Change

juvenalian
Chucknorris5799

We should take action on climate change now because it is predicted that the climate will increase by 4-6 degrees by 2100. Right now the climate is increased by 1 degree Celsius warmer since 1880. In the past extreme heat and drought has caused thousands of deaths. For example in Chicago 1995, 795 people died in a heat wave and in Europe 2003, 30,000 people died from another heat wave. In Northwest China desertification of farming lands causes a loss of 1000 miles annually. The Amazon forests pl...

Gay marriage should be legalized.

AshleyWalker75
Lexus

Everyone, men and women, without any limitation due race, nationality or religion should have the right to marry and to found a family. I believe that gay marriage should be acceptable in all places around the world because it shouldn't matter how old or what gender you are, love is love and no one should tell you otherwise. Therefore, gay marriage should be legalized....
