    Comments: I was very disappointed in your proposition constructive - you actually read your sources as your two main points. To properly cite something, you need to make reference to the point you are using, maybe do a brief quote (if necessary) and then cite to the source. You simply cannot read an entire news article as your sole argument. This is a debate - if I wanted to read a news article, I would have googled it. Also, there were few cites used in your rebuttals - which would have strengthened your argument. Good use of cites. It was a little difficult to follow your points simply because of the language barrier.

    The decision is for the Opposition: yukika kawana

    Reason for Decision:

    This was very close - however, I heard many arguments recycled by the Proposition. The proposition also did not address the points raised by the Opposition, particularly, how prison makes our society safer. On those grounds, I vote in favor of the Opposition.
