    I am watching CNN right now and they say the Supreme Court denies his appeal and he will be executed as soon as Georgia officials get the word.

    I hate this.
    I love how, in scary movies, the person yells out, "Hello?" As if the bad guy is gonna be like, "Yeah, I'm in the kitchen! Want a sandwich?"

    Yeah, and the mother of the police officer who he allegedly killed is on right now. I find her incredibly annoying.

    Uh I am not a big fan of the death penalty

    on the other hand I believe in full criminal and civil immunity for the targeted victim of a felony who kills or maims an assailant in the transactional sphere of a felonious attack

    "Self defense is ok"

    I said what you said, but in less words. I don't think anyone is arguing that you shouldn't be allowed to defend yourself to the extent that is necessary.

    A 90-year old woman in a wheelchair may be hell-bent on killing you with her bare hands, but I don't think that justifies you shooting her, personally.

    Imminent, mortal danger that you cannot easily escape? Sure. Blast away.

    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Cooper's question was stupid though. What do you think of Davis? Well not **** she is going to be like I don't like him.

    You are dodging.

    Simple question.

    Facts
    #1) You are for the death penalty
    #2) Death penalty means you will kill those that are not guilty

    Therefore if you are for the death penalty continuing and knowing that it will kill those innocent of said crime, you have to have a threshold that you will accept the innocent being killed to maintain a pro-death penalty system.

    What is your percentage/threshold?

    someone breaks into your occupied home-he's fair game even if you shoot him in the back as he sneaks through your home

    someone comes into your store and threatens you or a worker, kill him. if he falls to the ground and keeps moving, shoot him again.

    if someone is breaking into your car on your property-I think you should be able to kill him as well-he might come to your home next

    as long as its a felony on your property or an assault on your person, he is fair game

    however if someone has stolen your car and a month later you see him pulled up at the stop light in your car you shouldn't be able to pull out your Barrett 50 and then put one through his head as he drives away

    I am not either, especially when the death penalty becomes a lynching, as it is now. They are now going ahead with the execution. Self defense I am completely OK with. In that regard, I am OK with Troy Davis killing one of the executioners before he dies, if he is able to.

    That's true. However, I always feel a bit uneasy with the almost arrogant satisfaction family members of victims get with regards to the death penalty, especially when so much doubt surrounds the case.

    That said, I really shouldn't talk since I had the same arrogant satisfaction in the moments after bin Laden's death.
