Jodi Arias is innocent *Fall Tier Tournament- round 2*

Wylted
TN05

I want to start by thanking BSH1 for hosting this tournament and TNO5 for participating in it.A few things to keep in mind, is that my opponent has to show that Jodi Arias is guilty of murder beyond a reasonable doubt. I don't have to prove her innocence. I only have to show reasonable doubt. I plan to do this through a self defense argument, but am not limited to self defense arguments.

I think that porn is wrong, but kids looking up porn is even worse. It can lead them into doing the action on the pictures or videos. I think porn should be illegal, but most important kids browsing porn is worse....

Harlan

In July of this summer, during the annual rainbow gathering, law enforcement officers aggressively entered kid village to arrest someone. When a lady asked the officers to take their guns out of kid village, they violently detained her as well. Looking to instigate a riot, they prematurely began firing rubber bullets, pepper spray balls, and using tazers on the gatherers. People had welts all over their body from the close range barrage of pepper spray balls. They randomly shot with no discr...

It is morally permissible to kill Nelson Mandela to save the lives of innocent orphans.

brian_eggleston

This debate is inspired by the forthcoming LD debate: "It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people" but I don't know how to do LD debate (and I'm too lazy to learn) so please forgive my self-indulgence in pursuing a less formal interpretation of the topic. Picture the scene, if you will. It is a fine day in South Africa and Nelson Mandela is at the controls of his Ziviko Edge 540 single-seater stunt plane. All is well and he is heading home...

Man rapes 14 month old daughter. He should be put to death

JJ.Birkey
Rational_Thinker9119

In Missouri, a man rapes his 14 month old daughter, while the girlfriend watches. He killed the little girl by strangulation, the force of the impact would have killed her. The man is charged with first degree murder, the woman charged with second degree, sentence is undermined. Death Penalty should be used for this because the man took away the innocence of the this little girl, let alone for the murder. Yes, it is immoral, but so is the actions of this man and woman, they together, murdered th...
