Is the Ferguson uproar really about Michael Brown?

tyleremery2383
Jzyehoshua

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!...

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...

George Zimmerman Acted In Self-Defense Against Trayvon Martin

Spedman
psyduck

I will not be making my opening argument this round which is something I don't normally do when I debate. I will merely say that I watched the majority of the George Zimmerman trial (I'm a Florida resident, it was on local news), and I think the evidence was overwhelming that Zimmerman acted in self-defense. I would personally like to debate with someone who actually watched the majority of the trial (a few clips does not count). I would also ask that any racial prejudices be cast aside in this...

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....

Abortion...

Ms.Opinionated
Nahte42

If people are so against the death penalty and killing animals...why is it right to kill an unborn child? No you haven't see the baby but if your pregnant it's a HUMAN CHILD!!!! Why kill an innocent thing and think that's perfectly fine when we are so against killing animals and etc...I'm sorry the only one way for me to even possibly CONSIDER (not saying yes) would be if someone was raped that's it. So tell me why it's ok to kill a little baby?...

The legalization of Marijuana will cause more harm than good.

EnlightenedEntity

EnlightenedEntity has repeatedly proposed just what the title says, so he obviously has the burden of proof; however, I would like to start off a few things by outlining a few definitions: harm - physical injury or mental damage; hurt good - for the better; beneficial Sources: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/harm (For good, there are 58 definitions and none represent what I would like to state precisely enough. So the above is the general consensus, given the surrounding sent...
