    Okay,

    Look. Mistakes happen. Law Enforcement has changed over the last 20 years. The standard of proof has gotten higher, the scientific requirements have gotten higher, the way Police Operate has greately improved. Lowering the chance for a false conviction. This I think we shall all aggree is a good thing yes?

    To those blathering on with bigoted hate and idiocy towards Texas because of this incident... you don't know, and I don't know all the circumstances as to why these two were arrested to behin with. Was it bigotry? Were they just in the wrong place, wrong time? What other circumstances are you NOT hearing in this liberal wet dream of a perfect story showing the "EEVVIILLSS" of a southern state?

    There is always the "rest of the story". I'm sad they spent so much time behind bars, I'm GLAD they hav ebeen set free, and I understand that we have to try out best, and we have to accept that sometimes he system fails. It WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE RISK OF FAILING.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    A confession is a long, long way from absolute certainty.
    They shouldn't be confessing then.

    Then lets ban all laws because no system is perfect. that is what you are saying.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    I'm not willing to throw out the death penalty because we don't have a flawless system.

    Yep.

    That's exactly why I'll never support capital punishment.

    Somebody must've taken the square root of -1, we agree!

    I agree, but the lack of certainty is why we shouldn't be killing the ones which confess just because we feel certain.

    I'm not willing to throw out the justice system because it isn't flawless, but it seems to me that until our batting record is 1000 we shouldn't be killing anybody in the name of justice.

    Not one single innocent death at the hands of the state is acceptable. Period.

    Totally disagree. What you are demanding is impossible and I won't allow hundreds of purely evil men and women to remain living when their crimes under the law warrent death because we don't have a pefect system.

    Well, I sure am glad you can't allow or disallow.

    Seriously though, why on earth would we want to employ a punishment that we can't in any way take back or undo when our record is less than sterling?
