Ladies and gentlemen the resolution we have before us today is be it resolved that Robin Hood was contrary to popular belief a felonious man The information that I show later in my paper will prove this point My first point is that according to pre-Robin laws Robin would have been an outlaw Secondly I am going to prove that Robins morals and values were inane because he cared none for others just for himself Thirdly I am going to strengthen my case against him by explaining why he was an outlaw in his own time For my penultimate point I will explain how we are giving todays youth a very bad role model And for my last point I will demonstrate how if Robin Hood were alive today he would not be a revered hero but an inmate in a maximum-security prison Let me begin Nobody is quite sure when Robin Hood existed Every website book or reference paper tells a different story The earliest he could have lived is the middle 1200s and the latest is around the early 1700s But the laws in the pre-1600s were quite clear An outlaw was A person who is in contempt of authority by refusing to become amenable to a courts jurisdiction Or put in laymans terms Someone who is an enemy of authority by not wanting to listen to the courts power So therefore Robin was an enemy of authority because in the legends that have made him famous he has repeatedly fled from the scene of his crime or cowardly ran from the Sheriff or even the Prince himself For instance in the very first story of Robin Hood on how he became an outlaw to begin with All made haste to leave the burning manor-house most of which was now a blackening or smouldering ruin Robin led the way And even though murder was also a strict sin according to laws
