I should not interfere, but that comment did not make you any better. Be humble and try to understand instead of throwing the same pie back.

What is your problem? Legitimate questions were asked, but you feel the need to begin personal attacks.

Reap what you sow, sir.

Why is it that the government doesn't have the right to kill it's citizens, but it has the right to imprison them (remove their freedoms)???
Because 'removing there freedoms' is a reversable event, removing their lives, isn't.

I will answer one. Everybody seems to ignore my messages so you are not alone phatmonky. The first one:

Death is the ultimate force, the ultimate punishment(if you prefer to call it a punishment), because it leaves the involved who have survived safety and the ability to reuptake their lvies from when the victim was killed. It leaves society safer as well. Though this can be discussed. If the offender is kept imprisoned for the rest of his life without ANY - ANY - chance of escape, then that is something else. Or otherwise, the decision to execute the offender is plainly revenge. And revenge is not always the solution(..??)...

The second: Deprivation of one's freedom is the worst punishment. That is the torment the offender is capable to feel over a long period. Death is just a second and then there is no more.

I agree.

Wasn't trying to change your mind - Just show you that there are two sides to every story :)
BTW- your stat about 4 alibi's? only 2 were put in court, and both deemed unreliable. :)

Yes, eyewitness testimony can be very erroneous.

And we call ourselves "civilized". I say get rid of all of them. A Government has no business executing its' Citizens, for any reason.


If we were "civilized," what the heck are we doing in Iraq?
