You have just been arrested for a misdemeanor, however before even seeing a jail cell, the judge tells you that you are free to go until trial. Would you commit the crime again? (attention statement). Prop twenty-five is currently in the process of being passed. If passed, the cash bail system will be abolished, assessing inmates on risk alone making California the first state to do so. (thesis). To understand the importance of this prop we will look at three main ideas, supporting the prop, voting against the prop, and what it could mean for California in the future. (preview).
I. According to Senator Robert Hertzberg, the lead legislative sponsor of prop 25, the cash bail system is extremely unfair, even un-democratic.
a. The cash bail system is unjust and benefits those of a higher wealth status, allowing them to pay the prices.
b. Allows jail space to be used for actual violent offenders, reducing overcrowding.
II. Jeff Clayton, spokesperson for Californians Against the Reckless Bail Scheme, discusses the risky and costly manner of assessing someones freedom with a computer algorithm.
a. States how the assessment will be racially biased
b. Eliminates the right of bail to everyone
III. The importance of this prop will affect the justice system entirely.
a. John Raphling, a researcher for Human Rights Watch in Los Angeles, discusses how if voted against, the next prop would sideline with bail bondsmen instead of against.
b. If the prop is rejected, the question to abolish cash bail would never come back again.
Today we learned about the potential outcomes from this prop, reasons why some support it, and why some want to keep the justice system untouched. (review) Californias decision to potentially base inmates on risk assessment will be a steppingstone in history, whether voted for or against. (reiterate thesis). The pressing issue of racial biases and overcrowding in jails must be dealt with, however the question of how to do so remains the same. If passed, potentially progresses the justice system towards correct assessment, or provide a band aid in a notoriously racist system. (concluding statement).

Think of the informative speech as a door you need to walk through, but there are three locks on that door which require three keys. In order to be effective as an informative speaker youll need to possess these three keys. And they are: 1) finding a topic that is unique, new, and compelling; 2) gathering strong supporting material (research); 3) organization. With all three keys you easily pass through the doorway, but without them you will struggle and stumble and trip through, which will be embarrassing because everyone will be watching. Then your housemates will be mad at you, and then itll get all awkward and uncomfortable GOOD LUCK!
