Police brutality — up for debate between TU and Rwanda

2015 CEDA Debate winning team

TU’s debate team won the 2015 CEDA national championship for the second straight year.

Should police wear body cameras? That’s a question that’s been up for debate nationally – and it will be again as the Towson University Debate Team hosts the iDebate Rwanda Team on Friday, Nov. 6 at 4 p.m. in the Lecture Hall located in the center of Towson’s campus.

The teams will tackle the topic “Resolved: Body cameras should be used to curtail police brutality.”

The Rwandan team, consisting of Maya Musenga, Jesh Arnold Tugume, and Clemence Mbabazi, will defend the affirmative, while the TU team, consisting of Ben Goodman, Korey Johnson, and Sierra Underdue, will take up the negative.

The Towson Debate Team will also host high school students from the Baltimore Urban Debate League who will be in the audience. The debate is open to the public and there will be an opportunity for audience participation during cross-examination. Audience members can question debaters on additional issues they think are relevant to the discussion.

This year marks second straight time and third overall that the Towson University Debate Team are Cross Examination Debate Association (CEDA) champions.
