Hello everyone, I have a really good debate challenge oppurtunity for you :).

In other words, if a harsh new set of laws is implemented, these 2 states will leave Malaysia and become 2 seperate independent nations.

The Baltimore police are responsible for the death of Freddie Grey.

I want to make clear that I do not think this is an issue of race -- this is an issue of police brutality and unethical police conduct and treatment. With that said, I believe the Baltimore police are responsible for the untimely death of Freddie Grey. While there are still many unknown facts about the death itself, what is certain is that he had a cervical spine injury prior to his arrest. But the severing of the spine was caused while he was in the van heading to the police station. A lack...

Should we stop animal testing?

PrincessMizukiAshiya

Animal testing is dangerous and cruel. It may also be a good thing too. But think about it, using animals as test subjects, that's cruel. Plus what happens if the test works on the animal and not on the human? It's possible for test results to work on the animal and not work on the human. Also no one knows what kind of animals they are using for the animal testing. They could be using endangered species/animals , for all we know.......
