    I am not ecstatic about it either, but look at it as a necessary evil.

    I agree

    I still accept the fallout.

    It is statistically insufficient I am sure.

    Felons have many opportunities in our legal system to protect them.

    Just as an aside here, and not to get the thread off-track, but I do find it odd that assisted suicide seems to be a fairly easy thing to accomplish in a "humane" way but the moral question is troubling and yet the death penalty seems to be a difficult thing to accomplish in a "humane" way but the moral question is pretty settled in the majority of people's minds.

    I support assisted suicide. How can you "humanely" end the life of someone suffering and yet you can't "humanely" end the life of a convict on death row?

    As for "no possibility" of someone being wrongly convicted, there are many cases where it is unquestionable who killed and how - I can think of many cases here in Canada and I'm sure there are hundreds of such convicted murderers on death rows throughout the US.

    As MMC posted earlier, we in NE Ohio and Chicago are going to leave the "balmy" 20s we've been enjoying, and it's going to get COLD! It's been snowing all day long, and the wind has picked up now, so I guess some minus degrees will be reached. Brrrr! I assume that a little personal anti-freeze in the form of an adult beverage is called for...what think you?

    A guy that raped and slaughtered an 8 month old pregnant gets a sendoff with a drug cocktail...sounds...peaceful. As for it being 'tested' before...well...any volunteers? Since they cant get phenobarb anymore they are using the drug that has always been their standby method.

    I just got through another 3 hour power outage and I was dreading the possibility of another week of suffering, but it came back. This is the coldest day of the year here with wind chills near -30c. I know there are places in the US colder now too. Saw an article online today saying that Winnipeg, here in Manitoba Canada is now colder than Mars!!

    You mean like this convicted murderer did when he raped and killed a pregnant woman?

    I think that your buddy CJ has heavy gas issues, and is blowing this nasty weather into OH.

    So murders are now God?

    Nice logic.
