Reasons for voting decision: Poor performance all around, but at least pro presented arguments, albeit underdeveloped and unsupported ones. All Con had to offer was empty platitudes.

Reasons for voting decision: S&G: Pro's "Children will stop doing the same misbehavior if given a significant consequence for their poor decisions." is obviously faulty grammar. Arguments: Pro wins. They assert two points: (1) Stop misbehaving is given consequences, and (2) that they will think twice. These points are not refuted by Con, who provides baseless counter points (broken spirits) that have no factual evidence to back up the claims. Therefore, Pro wins argument points.
