    No. He claimed to be able to kill a human being without feeling a thing.

    I don't actually believe him. I think he's better than that.

    but just like guns, cars, planes, medicine, alcohol etc etc are responsible for millions of deaths i have not ideas that they should be abolished . . .

    You fix whats wrong and improve counter measurements and protocol IMO.

    We have bad cops and judges . . . .we don't abolish all cops and judges we try to fix the real issue



    I would be simply on board with requiring a higher level of evidence for death . . . but I see no reason to abolish it . . .

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

But really, what happens if not? It goes to court. It’s not like these criminals get away with crimes just because the DP isn’t around.

    Yeah, but it's unnecessary and expensive and flawed. There's really no reason to keep it.

    I have doubts to it being unnecessary and expensive... but flawed?...I'm thinking more along the lines of the prior proceedings potentially being flawed, not the penalty itself.
    getting rid of the penalty altogether does nothing to address any flaws... practically speaking it allows us to ignore those flaws and allows them to persist.

    it's a righteous penalty for a qualifying like crime.

    an argument to it's application being potentially faulty but nonetheless permanent is a valid argument... inclusion on a list is not.
    Got it. My bad. Thought you were talking about erroneously executing innocent people.
