    You quoted the victim's son. Was that just for the emotional appeal? I don't understand the argument that, because some victim's families oppose the death penalty, it should somehow carry more weight than victim's families who support it.

    Well, to be honest, I just cannot look at the facts of a case like this and believe that justice is served by anything less than the SOBs death.

    interestingly enough, the only one advocating Community service in this thread is you.

    congratulations are in order though. the U.S. is part of this select group.

    China, Iran, North Korea, the Saudis and Yemen.

    you must be very proud.


    still laughing?

    Re: White supremacist executed for dragging death

    In the abstract I have no problem with the death penalty. I believe there are people who deserve to die for something they did. If we could come up with a way to apply the death penalty to all those folks and not to anybody who doesn't deserve it, by all means, I'd be on board. But unfortunately we haven't even come close to being able to accomplish that. A black person is many times more likely to be put to death for the same crime. People with lower IQs are far more likely to be put to death for the same crime. If they're poor, they're more likely to be put to death. Juries carry lots of biases with them that distort the process. If somebody is less socially adept, or visibly different from the people on the jury, they're far more likely to be put to death than if they're similar to the jury and slicker. We also put tons of people on death row that are actually innocent. When DNA evidence came out they found that 10% of the cases of people on death row where they still had DNA evidence saved, the person on death row was innocent. Most cases there was no DNA evidence, so presumably 10% of everybody on death row is innocent. That's a high number for a penalty that irreversible and severe. So, the reality is that the courts just aren't an accurate enough tool to give that much power to.

    In a way, I guess that's true. Not having Brewer in the community any more is certainly a service to the community.

    congratulations are in order though. the U.S. is part of this select group.

    IIRC we're quite a bit behind all those other countries and have some catching up to do.

    Good grief you write so many things I agree with.

    The death penalty was a pointless waste of money in this case. There was no compelling reason to kill him rather than give him life in prison.
