Reasons for voting decision: Pro never really provided a case, simply asserting that the DP was cruel and not morally correct. While Con's arguments were weak, Pro had BoP. Pro wasted an entire round justifying why the definition of cruel and unusual could be changed, and never really defended *why it should be changed* beyond simply asserting that it was so. Everything else seemed equal enough not to warrant scoring.
