The riches rule over the law
Debate Rounds (1)
privilege of the rich class. The 'haves' determine the fate of the have not.
Riches don't rule over the law.They can rule over the officers that enforce law but once the culprit is caught and is displayed before the law courts.No one can save him if proper rules and evidences are put into application and shown respectively.
For example,fundamental rights or human rights remain same for everyone whether rich or poor.
Riches cannot control law.The richest of persons can be punished under the law.
or simply put the meaning of rule is to govern - reign - dominate - administer - direct - control
But this does not happen.
Wealth cannot control law.Even if one tries to do so,one can easily be punished if the person who accuses one has proper evidence .
Also,a practical example of that riches cannot rule over the law would be the tax collection system,the rich people are also taxed and they are helpless-They cannot say 'no' to tax.If they escape tax and are brought to court,they will be punished.Their riches won't save them.
If the evidence provided is solid,and there is a law that says a person is guilty and should be punished,then he would be punished , no matter how rich a person is.
There are many examples of this.
Generally, a person who is suspected to be a criminal, and proved that he or she is guilty is punished by law.It is basically judgment in standard of society.

Reasons for voting decision: The constant font changes cost Con the spelling and grammar, but doing a single round debate costs Pro conduct, since he made it impossible for an actual debate to occur. Pro did not make any substantial or supported arguments and obviously did not refute anything Con said.
