    ...all you had to say.

    A treaty is not binding domestic law unless Congress has passed laws implementing it, or unless it is a self-executing treaty.

    Medellín v. Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It's essentially not ratified.

    So you're still wrong.

    How is that great then? You are obviously misinformed enough to think the justice system is there to exact revenge for the victims. The fact that we still waste millions of dollars to carry out this barbaric practice induces nauseousness in me.

    Can you please point out where, before or during the trial, this Mexican was "refused home country counsel"? When did that occur?

    The idea of punishment is intended as a deterrent and we should be learning that as children. That's why we have parking meters, as well as electric chairs. There are consequences to unacceptable social behavior, from the trivial to the serious, and in order to make society as agreeable as possible to all, we have to work within acknowledged and acceptable boundaries, Murdering a 16-year-old girl is widely considered to be outside those established boundaries, and the killer should have been aware of that at the time, just as you and I have to be aware of a No Parking sign.

    the court case which followed allows us to conclude it was not provided
    since you asked me to prove a negative i will now ask you to divide by zero
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    OK, so judicial activism changed the Constitution... I late liberal judicial activism as well as "conservative" judicial activism

    First you say it was "refused" and now you say it was "not provided".

    Do you understand the difference and, if so, which one is correct?
