    Ahh! I see, so Christians and facists are the same? Better be careful, TED's going to get on your ass for making sweeping generalizations.

    There is no cure for that, there is no reason to keep a person who is dangerous to others around like that.
    If I were living in Virginia, I know there's not much I could do to stop the execution, but I would still have a problem knowing that my tax dollars fund it. If she was truly a psychopath, then there are treatments for that. Was that attempted?

    Execution, if it's to happen at all, should be the last of the last resorts.

    When it comes to old world thinking, draconion controls, and failure to embrace modern alternatives, there is little distinction.

    The doctor inserts the needles, but doesn't push the buttons for the lethal toxins to go in. Doctors are not supposed to do any harm, so technically, the alcohol swab is part of that. Plus it's just standard procedure.

    To prevent infection, of course!

    There are no treatments for psychopathy, treating a person using counseling can be entirely ineffective because people with psychopathy are incredibly manipulative.
    Enough to fool or at least confuse a doctor.

    Psychopaths are dangerous because they are indifferent to the suffering of others, especially when they stand to benefit from it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    strict gun control has no hope of stopping crime and only makes victims less safe

    if someone doesn't worry about the needle why would they worry about breaking a gun law

    and don't think gun control will make it hard for mopes to get illegal guns. THis country is awash in weed and crack and both those are illegal and don't have 100 year life spans like a gun does

As long as I'm not getting shot personally I'm fine, still I wouldn't mind seeing stricter gun control. Why do people need M-16s and AK-47s??
    need has nothing to do with rights

    and city governments throughout the uSA have determined that M16 rifles are useful for civilian employees of these government units to use for self defense in urban environments. If a local government says such rifles are useful for one set of civilians they are clearly useful for other civilians

    here is how it works-less guns possessed by THUGS=less crimes of violence. Less guns possessed by honest people-ie potential victims-= MORE CRIME. What does gun control do-it deprives honest people of guns AT FAR HIGHER RATES than it deprives mopes of guns

    therefore gun bans or strict gun control does not help crime rates

    well if the governor stops the execution and they didn't do it and the mope got a MRSA the state could face a most expensive lawsuit
