    I never said it "didn't matter" in a general sense. I said it doesn't matter with regards to how we treat the inmate.

    3) "free" health care
    4) any redistributionist nonsense
    5) affirmative action
    Both sides do it to the same degree. It's partisan foolery to pretend otherwise.

    The right (aka Bush & company) appealed to the country's emotions after 9/11 to justify the Iraq invasion. The left insists the right wants women barefoot and pregnant. We could spend all ngiht coming up with examples.

    Maybe you should take a look at what they did to prisoners and murders during their time.

    Hell, I'm all for bringing back the stocks. Whipping. etc. They knew how to take care of criminals.

    Then your choice of words were very poor.

    The murder was about the victims.
    The death sentence is about the another person.

    You are making a false choice of if one is against the death penalty and doesn't fully agree with you about how this man should die and also agree with you about how horribly he should die... then I don't have any sympathy for the aforementioned murdered and family of the murdered. Simply not true and whole-heartily disingenuous on your part in seeking support with an appeal to emotion based on this falsehood.

    It is never surprising to see a liberal expressing more concern for the perpetrator of a serious crime than for the victims of that crime.

    Disgusting, yes.

    Depressing, yes.

    But surprising, never.

    It seems to be one of the defining characteristics of American liberalism to be on the side of the criminals, and against that of honest people.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    And they surely weren't gasping for air.
    Too much bloody mess to clean up afterwards. Sure, a hanged man will piss and **** themselves, but most is kept in their pants.

    You didn't need to restate the obvious.

    See X Factor... another appeal to emotion with this same non sequitur. Being against the death penalty in no way is siding with the criminal. Another...er... actually the same repeated BS argument gone down the toilet.
