    That means these people won't be released back into society and it's cheaper to keep them imprisoned till they rot than it is to go through with a lengthy execution appeal.

    They can still harm other inmates, prison guards and other prison staff and there is a chance they can escape or receive a pardon.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

    Doh!




    And what didn't you get about people claiming that they have committed crimes that they haven't?

    Neither claim has any bearing on whether or not this girl's claim is true.
    Nor is your claim above, a reason to simply dismiss hers.

    It's like you are saying the following.
    That way of thinking is convoluted.
    It's like saying;
    It shows clear bias and prejudice.

    I am saying it all depends on the evidence.
    Which is something the record available to us in this case is lacking.
    Both which are things that you seem unable to comprehend.
    Criminals lie all the time to get out their punishments. This is normal criminal behavior no matter what part of the world a criminal is in. So what there are crazies out there who confess to crimes they didn't do. We are all aware that they jail and execute people for measly **** in the middle east, it does not validate the claims of a criminal.



    The claims of the lawyer is a reason to look and see whether or not she indeed did receive a fair trial.


    [SIZE=3][FONT=Georgia][I]The delusion lays with yourself.
    I have never made the claim that criminals do not lie, nor would I.
    Nor would I make a claim that police, prosecutors and the general public, do not lie.
    Again the claims of a criminal are not proof of anything.Nor is it proof their justice screwed her.It seems your convinced that because the middle eastern justice system executes women for measly **** then somehow they must have falsely accuse her of murder.

    As for lawyers claiming,"some sort of bull **** to help their client weasel out of punishment". [

    Your view is extremely jaded.
    Legal arguments are not bs if founded in the law.

    What I am saying is that you have no evidence to say that they got it right in this instance, or that her claim was bs.
    Your words in regards to this were nothing but speculation.
    What I am saying is what I already said:
    The claims of lawyers are not proof of anything. A lawyer is going to do any and everything they can to get their client off the hook. Their word has as much validity as a convicted murderer's word,which is zilch.


    You have already been shown that you are wrong with examples given.
    You have not proven anything.

    This is nothing but ignorance. See? I have an opinion, too.

    Oh the poor wittle serial kiwwers and murderwer shouldn't be executed its not right that we take their lives, we should force millions of tax payers to support these poor people for the rest of their lives and perhaps if they been good enough we can release these people back into society.
    You realize that it costs more to kill them then keep them alive, right? Or are you just being uninformed again?

    What a load of ****en garbage. You people have as much regard for the victims of these scum as the scum or maybe even less.
    God, you are more emotional than most democrats. How about formulating a factual argument rather than getting worked up?

    To make the death penalty cheaper, what has to be done is to make from jury to coffin more efficient. Meaning that one can get convictions with the death penalty easier and with less resource (just proving a death penalty case takes more money than merely pursuing jail time), limiting appeals, and expediting the execution of criminals. The whole of this has the overall result that it will capture more innocent people. You're not going to make the system smarter by trying to make it go faster, you're merely trying to save a few bucks and still be able to kill people. But as you decrease dollars spent on the system, you increase innocent life which is spent on the system. That's innate to trying to make it more efficient. To cut costs you remove some of the safeguards in place which were meant to keep as many innocent people out as possible. It's not something I think is particularly good. And even as the system as is, when Illinois did their audit of death row and put the moratorium on the death penalty, it was found that near half the people on death row were there for a crime they didn't commit. I don't find those to be acceptable odds. Instead, I think it's best to just nix the whole of the death penalty and stick with life in prison without chance of parole. Innocent people will always get caught up, that number can't be zero. But killing them certainly takes away from being able to release someone should the State have found an error. It's best just to side with life on this one. Cheaper and you don't kill anyone.

    If anything, we should be looking over our rules in this country and trying to figure out why 1/3 of our population will sometime in their lifetime spend time in jail. We seem big on this jailing thing and we should try to find the cause and maybe try to alleviate that a bit. I, for one, would throw out all the non-violent drug offenders from jail. Tell them they don't have to go home, but they can't stay in jail.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Iran is way out there in their punishments, but just when you think it couldn't get any worse, Iran becomes like Texas.

    Article is here.
    I know you are attempting to be funny here; but comparing any US State to a country lacking even basic human rights is beyond the pale don't you think?

    By the way, from your own source:

    As of yesterday, 20 states, including Virginia, permitted the death penalty for offenders younger than 18. That is five fewer than allowed the practice in 1989.

    Do you even READ your own sources?

    Re: Iran executes 22 year-old

    Once again we debate the Death Penalty in this country so I will once again throw in my two cents worth;

    My only fear with rescinding the Death Penalty is the idea that murderers will be allowed back onto the streets. If I could be assured that the LAW will not feel sorry for despicable thugs who commit murder or attempt to commit murder will NEVER get out of Prison, I am fine with rescinding it forever as that is what a civilized country should do.

    But without this guarantee to the citizens and victims of this country, it is unlikely there will be a large movement to ban the act.

    Too many times, guilty parties have been “reformed” and returned to society only to commit another act of murder. The loss of an innocent life because society failed to protect them is worse, in my opinion, than the possibility that an innocent person accused of murderer may have been put to death.

    Our legal processes are just too complex, protections too great and the time it now takes to execute someone so long, it is fairly difficult to believe that in TODAYS world, innocent people are being executed.

    Your preconceived biases have no place in debate.
    Nor should your preconceived biases be used to ascertain the veracity of a claim.
    The vast majority of those charged with committing a crime admit to committing a crime.

    The way women are treated in that country is reason enough to look further into the claims being made.

    And again.
    The claims of the lawyer are a reason to look and see whether or not she did indeed receive a fair trial.

    Another preconceived bias.

    Yet another preconceived bias.
    Your word has has the same validity as another person, whether they are a lawyer or convicted of murder. What matters is if the information that a person's word is based on, is accurate/true/factual.

    I provided examples where no sympathy was required.
    What don't you get about that?

    • I support trying 17 year olds as adults.
    • I support the death penalty.
    • Where Iran got it right by not leaving her on death row for 20 years, they got it wrong by not informing her lawyer 48 hours in advance.

    Thanks for the article.... This one sounds like it should have been allowed an appeal, to look a little closer at the boyfried, in a society that still burns women at the stake for suspicions of unacceptable behavior.

    His word is valued twice that of hers, so I don't know if that would matter that much.

    What I would have like to have seen was some forensics on the knife wounds. Depth, angle of attack, etc...
    It would have given us a much better insight into whether or not she actually committed the crime, or her boyfriend, who reportedly only got ten years as an accessory.
