    Comments: You should impact your moral imperatives more and stress the atrocities occurring within the prisons. Talking more about the alternatives to prison and how they work would have been helpful You need to give a more cohesive story as to why prisons are necessary. Your best arguments were that alternatives do not work. When she did not address this fully you should extend them, flush them out, and then impact the harms of such a world. You should make sure to talk about her moral issues within the prison system or mitigate this while stressing the importance of the harms of removing prisons.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Miki Kawana

    Reason for Decision:

    No one told me what was most important to vote on and while within this debate I am not sure if prisons work or not, or the alternatives, I ultimately voted on moral issues because that went non-debated by the opposition. The prisons do sound like a terrible place as outlined in her first speech and in the world in which I do not know what works to decrease crime or reform prisons I at least want to have nothing to do to contribute to the atrocities that exist within the prison system.
