    If that's true then he should be tried and convicted. That's truly DISGUSTING.

    First of all, the extraordinary protections afforded to the defendant and if its a lack of money for legal resources is not an issue for if, the defendant doesn't have them, the capital crimes unit of the public defender's office will do it. The state foots both sides of the bill.

    Should extraordinary protections be given? Of course, no doubt. As a matter of fact, the state cares MUCH more for the rights of the defendant than he/she EVER did for the rights of his/her victims

    Thank you for your honest answer, and THIS is why I am against the death penalty. It is only one reason, but it is reason enough. I used to be for the death penalty.

    Yes there is. What if they are caugh on tape, what if they come out to the police and brag about what they did? These are pretty clear cut and 100%.

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. -Thomas Jefferson

    A confession is a long, long way from absolute certainty.
    If they are that stupid? They deserve to be killed based on how stupid it is to confess to a crime they did not commit. Consider it a favor to mankind to get rid of that kind of stupid.

    I'm saying EVERY state has innocent blood on his hands. To pretend its only in one region is laughable at best.

    The reason I'm for the death penalty?

    If I ever had to witness any harm done to my family, girlfriend (who I wish was a fiance or wife, but I'm strapped for cash) or even a friend then I would want to use a vegetable peeler on every inch of their body before charring them. The death penalty wouldn't be enough for me. Some people in some situation deserve the death penalty. I believe there are some clear-cut cases where it should be applied. I also believe there are many cases where it has been and shouldn't have been.

    In theory I'm 100% for the death penalty. In practice, I'm probably not quite there. I'm stuck between being sickened by the loss of innocent life and disgusted by the existence of guilty life.
