    Comments: I really enjoyed listening to your speeches and thought they were well developed and argued!! Focus a little more on the evidence, do some more research to accurately understand mass incarceration, and make sure you negate the aff. Nonetheless, I appreciated the opportunity to judge you and think you're a great debater!!

    The decision is for the Proposition: Ava Angeles

    Reason for Decision:

    I think the aff has won this round because they have proven that sentencing reform is good. I think the neg is proving why forensic science might be useful or good, but is not answering the aff responses and isn't accurately explaining the relationship between mass incarceration and either side's arguments. The aff has also pointed out a contradiction in the neg arguments. Finally, the biggest issue is that the neg has not proved sentencing reform isn't a good idea or that forensic science reform is somehow better while also being mutually exclusive with the aff (if they can happen at the same time, then there is no reason forensic science being good would mean that we shouldn't affirm that sentencing reform is good).
