I never watched the Jodi Arias trial but I've always felt like she was innocent because she is pretty. Why would that beautiful girl kill somebody out of Jealousy that's just absurd. Anyway after doing a 5 minute google search I've confirmed my suspicions. Jodi Arias is indeed innocent.

I believe in the mantra innocent until proven guilty so Con has the BOP to show Jodi Arias is guilty. All I have to do is show reasonable doubt. If I show reasonable doubt than you should vote me as the winner of this debate.

In all fairness to my opponent, I will upfront tell him I'm using a self defense argument.

Okay, this is just so crazy that I may not continue.
You are saying that this woman is innocent because she is pretty? She didn't murder (or shouldn't be charged) because you think she is attractive?
I'll be honest. Just like you, I only did about a 5 minute google search, but I think that if someone has murdered somebody else, they should only be punished if the person wasn't trying to kill them first. Travis Alexander did nothing to Jodi.
I...just...ugh. I hope you never go to jury duty.

I did go on jury duty. The guy's case was so weak that He had to plead out at the last second, however had he known that I would have voted innocent he probably would have fought that thing harder.

The state didn't even test the shooter for gunpowder residue and they found him the same night, wtf?

Anyway just a forewarning to the voters, I'm only putting in enough effort to win. I will keep setting this challenge up until I find a competent opponent and I will progressively restrict the debate settings further until I do.

Con has to show beyond a reasonable doubt that Jodi Arias is guilty of murder.

My argument is that Travis attacked her and she stabbed him in self defense. This half assed argument is enough to win until my opponent offers some evidence that Jodi Arias killed Travis in cold blood.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Pro. Con forfeited every round aside from the first. This is rarely acceptable conduct in any debate setting. S&G - Tie. Neither had poor spelling and grammar. Arguments - Pro. Con failed to negate the arguments raised by Pro. This left pro standing unchallenged and thus he wins these points. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Forfeit. Same as 9space. Arguments for obvious reasons, as well as conduct. Spelling and Sources remain even.
