I accept. You may put forward your case.
Cheremy forfeited this round.
Your motion does not make sense.
By directly following the motion, due to the lack of an argument, you are saying that anyone who breaks the law should be effectively tortured after trial. Simply because you stated, anyone who breaks the law, but people are only innocent until proven guilty and given a fair trial in most western courts, so we only know someone has broken the law after a trial. And to state anyone who breaks the law implies any sort of perversion from the law, from littering to murder counts. Do you already see the problems? Firstly, what is the point of this after someone has been caught? Surely the purpose of interrogation is to find out whether they did a crime, so afterwards, I can only assume data extraction. But if someone littered, then what data can there be to extract? I do not need to delve into the absurdity of interrogating after a trial, or after someone commits any crime, also because secondly, you will be torturing petty thiefs, pickpockets and those who litter. For what? As a deterrent? Well surely other than a deterrent there is no arguable moral reason to torture one who litters. And as a deterrent it is brutally immoral. As it is any crime, I can assure you that there will be a large number in the falsely tortured, which then has no justifiable reasoning. Also, the monetary and social practicality is minute. For every last crime to result in a torture, the amount of places for torture needed will be outside the budget of any Government, and not to mention that torture hostels will need to be common. And the backlash from the public will be too much of an issue.
I urge the floor that this is not semantics. He did not explain his case so making any assumption on when to use it or how would be stupid, as these are subjective issues. The only thing I can argue this point by is by the motion defined, which is "advanced interrogation methods should be implemented on anyone who breaks the law", in which everything above applies to this exactly, so I urge you to vote for me.
Cheremy forfeited this round.
