    Re: First Woman Executed in the U.S. in Five Years

    I shot a mugger once.

    He needed a towel afterwards.

    A towel, and a therapist.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Statistics prove you wrong, but that's nothing new.

    And with such thorough sourcing, who could ever doubt your claims?

    Every one of turtledude's stories has remained consistent in the years he's been here. You've been told by CC that he is who he says he is. Pretending like you think he's lying doesn't make your arguments any stronger.

    Actually while Levitt's original calculation for Freakonomics was in fact an error, his revised one does show a relatively small impact upon crime caused by abortion. Nowhere near his original assertion, but not entirely false.

    And you got a statistics that shows that increased incarceration doesn't reduce crime?

    you just make crap up as you go along. The area where I had to shoot someone wasn't exactly a high crime area but there were some muggings. After the DA noted how many of the citizens in the area had carry permits, the mopes must have gotten an education because there were ZERO muggings in that area for a year after I had to act

    Yeah I recall you spent hours trying to deny I went to Yale or have a law degree. You seem to think that since you cannot dispute my positon you can undermine it by trying to pretend my relevant background doesn't exist even though you have been schooled on that by others. I gave you the chance to get the complete story but you didn't have the stones to put up the cash

    What bothers me even more lately is that the mental health system is so broken and that the criminal justice system has decided to wash its hands of violent mentally ill offenders.

    There are many severely mentally disturbed people who are a very clear danger to society who are getting released from jail to mental treatment and the mental health system is kicking them back to the streets a few days later with a perscription and a case worker's phone number.
    yes, thank you - no one's saying that she shouldn't have been held someplace.
    But giving the death sentence wasn't the right answer to the problem.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Unfortunately, they don't. Economists and academics have debunked Lotts 'more guns, less crime' b.s. as fundamentally flawed junk science.

    It can not stand up to peer-review.

    Get over it and move on.

    Crime goes down when criminals are housed for life -- a very expensive solution.

    I'm actually referring to the prevalence of legal firearm ownership and their relation to crime rates. Sorry for being vague.

    Nobody said anything about John Lott.

    Gun control makes violent crime more prevalent. Deal with it.
