    I rest my case. If he had proof to back up his lies he would have produced it. But that requires something he simply doesn't have. Competence.

    If an innocent man is executed, those responsible (the judge and the prosecutors) need to face the same punishment.. Then than punishment needs to be commuted to life in prison without parole or visitation from family members.
    that's idiotic unless they intentionally conspired to frame someone. IF THEY DID there are plenty of laws that will punish such actions severely. Should the hangman be hanged if he is given a death warrant on a prisoner who turns out to be innocent? what about the jailers who take the man to the gallows? what about the governor who doesn't commute the sentence.

    With regards to prison v. death penalty, assuming the standard of proof was much more definitive, I quite simply don't think society should have to bear the cost of keeping a murderer alive in prison for the rest of his life.

    Name one executed murderer who has killed again.
    To that, I reply, name one executed innocent person who has killed again. LOL. I throw out this little joke to laugh at the straw man you built here.

    Neither of you can name a person so you're even.

    Texas seems to be one of the few states that is actually doing well in terms of an economy.

    An executed convict may be awarded a pardon beyond the grave because of DNA evidence, potentially dealing a dramatic blow to the death penalty in America.

    The governor of Virginia, Mark Warner, has ordered DNA tests on Roger Coleman, a miner executed in 1992 for raping and murdering his sister-in-law.

    Sometimes others do the volunteering for them, as when Rick Perry replaced 3 members of the forensic board here in Texas, while they were investigating a botched conviction of an innocent man. He was executed for a crime he did not commit, and Perry attempted to cover it up.
