Darren Wilson was in the right

thatguy554

The fact of the matter with this case is that Michael Brown has no argument for his defense. I'm not saying that it isn't horrible to lose a family member, but when someone assaults an officer of the law, you cannot pull an about-face and say that the officer was in the wrong. Here are the facts, -13 shots were fired at Brown, only a small number actually hit. -Blood and DNA from Brown were found on officer Wilson's weapon and pant leg, as well as inside the squad car, supporting the argu...

Should the grand jury have indicted Darren Wilson?

Jalen3000
Craighawley215

Yes, I believe the grand jury should have indicted Darren Wilson. Yes, there was a lot done wrong on Michael Browns part but that is no excuse that shoot somebody 10 times. Why didn't he use a taser? Why couldn't he shoot him in the leg to stop him?...

Is the Ferguson uproar really about Michael Brown?

Resolved: the riots in Ferguson are not necessarily about the killing of Michael Brown, but is the result of long-standing racial tensions in St. Louis. Debate layout: Round 1 is for acceptance. Round 2 is for arguments. Round 3 is for closing statements. I thank Pro in advance for accepting and for a good debate! Good luck!...

The decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson was justifiably correct

YaHey

1st round acceptance 2nd round arguments 3rd round arguments and rebuttals 4th round conclusions No Racism or abusive language No trolling As I'm still quite inexperience please no bombarding of information. Note: I'm not saying the death of Michael Brown is not justifiable, it is sad that a young man like him has departed. But I feel inclined to inform people why the decision was made about the indiction trial....

The U.S media covers up black on white crime and over reports white or "white" on black crime.

I am not racist. What I am saying is a fact. Not all black people are responsible for the actions of some black people. Same thing with whites, Hispanics ect. Please no race baiting, racism or denying of facts. There is a double standard in the U.S media. If a white person commits a crime against a black person even if it is out of self defense as we saw in ferguson that event will be discussed and reported on a lot. If a black person commits a crime against a white person that crime will not...

President Obama says the goal is to roundly defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria because the threat is too serious to ignore. But he'd prefer you not call it a war....

Stricter gun control laws

sjrrj
Shrek_sDrecKid

Guns are a major problem in the US. People believe that more guns will save you. That is not the case. They can be stolen easily, especially by kids, if stored in the house and its just dangerous. I don't know why people are so in favor of guns. They are dangerous and bad. They say "Guns don't kill people. People kill people." That's just dumb. Yes the person used a gun to kill someone but a gun was still the weapon. It still killed someone. Our country needs very strict gun control laws. Massac...

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.
