I believe my opponent is confused about his own position in this debate, for his initial statement "but they have to snipe criminals?" falls on my side of the debate, for that question is implying that police should not carry weapons. He has given no justification for this policy or elaboration at all in which to engage upon, so he has failed to meet his burden in this debate and concedes the win to con side.

How can I post an argument when I dont even know how you would define this motion, so if my argument is about allowing non-lethal weapons but not allowing lethal weapons, how can I know if this argument is relevant under your interpretation, I can only guess, so there it is my argument, they should not use lethal weapons for criminals can be subdued the same with non-lethal weapons and that should be the only right a police has, they should not have the right to kill someone.

So obviously I am tieing this debate since neither side made any arguments. Mike hatchers shenanigans are frustrating to be honest. Just argue the debate and not semantics. Everything else can work itself out
