  1. Aviance Winn won because she gave the most detailed information and was very prepared with her answers. Her facts were well organized and she wasn’t confusing when she made her points.

  3. Aviance won because she gave the most detailed information.but one point I would like to be explained just exactly how did Eric Gardner die because in the the video it said he was touched and because of that he’s dead now theirs a big difference between touching and choking no body can die from just a simple touch

  4. I think that Lytzi won although Aviance gave alot of information in the beginning about real cases that happened, there was no proof of body cameras preventing these events from happening. Liytzi’s strongest claim was that police officers could just turn the body cameras off which is true. Either way there actually is footage of police officers harassing innocent people but obviously the cameras still didn’t stop them from doing it.

  5. I think Aviance won the debate because she has a full explanation backing up on her side which makes her side of the argument to be stronger. She also give a great details about how the behavior of the people when the body camera is recorded. It changes because when the camera is recorded, people behave very different from who they are. she stated that these body cameras was to protect the citizens. Overall, both side of the debate has a good points.

  6. I think it was a tie. Aviance had a lot of information on some of the cases of excess use of force by police officers. Liytzi gave a really good reason of how the officers can just turn off the cameras and also she said that in those cases of Laquan and Eric the officers were being recorded but they still used more force than needed.

  7. I think Aviance won because she had a lot of great information and facts. She was very prepared and was well organized for this debate. She was also very clear with each fact she presented. I understood everything very well. Both of them did a good job! I really enjoyed listening to this.

  8. well Lesley Manzo, I was trying to argue that of course I know that the cameras could just get shut off but it was also other recordings during these altercations and that the body cameras was at least a boost up for justice to get the dirty cops locked up and have justice for the people who were being harassed and affected by these horrible actions.

  9. Aviance Winn won. She had many detailed facts and her information had many details. When she was asked a question she was sure on what she was saying. The body cameras are a good source for court cases.

  10. It was hard to pick a winner in this debate, but I have to go Aviance, They both at times went against their own sides of the debate and both have weak point. For Aviance, the police brutality question made her have a little boost against Liytzi, I wish if she stated about how they will record and place it on their data files for evidence. It some what feels like a tie in the debate.
