The first round is for accepting the debate and clarifying any rules before we proceed. If you have any input, please feel free to include it.

Rounds 2 and 3 can be used to present new arguments and counter arguments, but I would like to save the last round for conclusions consisting of a summary of your key points, and perhaps addressing any of the new points presented in round 3 by the opposition.

If you make a statistical claim, or utilize some piece of data, please share said data and source.

They're probably not going to even debate it. They joined a day ago and accepted the challenge he as soon as they did. Probably a ghost account. I'll just recreate the debate again and set requirements.

I would love to debate the con side of this. I can predict where you are going, like how whites are 54% of police shootings while making up only 42% of violent crimes.

People compare population stats to arrest and shooting stats. That is a fallacy. What should be compared are crime stats to arrest and shooting stats. Criminal actions are the vast majority of interactions between police and citizens. Population plays no role in it. Only crime stats matter.
