Taking BoP.. Also willing to accept resolution for shared BoP if the argument steers that way.

I will be arguing that their ought to be an independent police force designed to keep the police in check.

alternatively, I will also accept a resolution of having police forces divided into districts that police each other. This is assuming that Con makes a good case for this.

Round 1
Pro
1.  Police are employed in order to enforce the law. 

2.  Police are sometimes allowed to justifiably break these laws themselves for the sake of their job. 

3.  Sometimes Police take this too far. 

4.  While there are agencies dedicated to police conduct, they cannot always be around to see everything that happens.

5.  To solve this, police should be able to keep tabs on each other and enforce laws on each other when they are going too far.

6.  Police who work together everyday are less likely to keep each other in check.


Conclusion.  We need a police force apart from the main police who strictly has the authority to only deal with police affairs.

Hello,

There shouldn't be police whose only job is to police the police. In order to do their jobs, police are sometimes forced to break laws to carry out their jobs. If you want to stop this, you should change the debate topic to 'It is lawful to break the law' instead.

Telling me to change the topic after you already accepted is bad conduct and bad faith arguing. 

Furthermore, I addressed this in my opening.  Cops sometimes have to break the law (I use this term lightly because it's technically not illegal when they do this)

However, Cops are not justified to break the law in all cases and having a separate entity keeps them in check. 

If your best argument is to tell me to change the debate topic, then I find your argument lacking. 


Your floor. Try to actually rebuttal me this time.

Yes, I know what you mean, but don't you get my 'hidden meaning'. I wasn't literally telling you to change the topic, I meant that breaking the law is sometimes necessary for cops. And now, my rebuttal:

Yes, sometimes cops go too far, but they usually don't. Even if it does occur, there are already tons of people to take care of this.
