    Comments: You were good on the line by line and made sure to address all of your opponents arguments, however I think that it would be persuasive to not start out immediately on the line by line on your last speech. I also think that it would also be a good idea to expand on your points in the rebuttal. Great speeches. I think that you could perhaps use some more research or evidence to support your arguments in order to make them more persuasive.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Jane Hahn

    Reason for Decision:

    Good debate! I voted for the opposition.

    First, the definition debate went to the opposition. I think that the proposition should spend a bit more time here. I end up agreeing that a uniform enactment would be one that isn't different dependent on the country.

    Second, the opposition wins that even if body cameras happen they won't solve the problems the proposition points out. The proposition needs to respond to the specifics of this point instead of making a more generic argument. The examples given of police in Minneapolis having body cameras but still abusing their power are persuasive to me.

    Given this and the definition debate, there is a low risk of the proposition solving their harms. Thus, I voted for the opposition arguing for differentiated reform based on need.
