    Should VX gas bomb hit Max lock up in CA, think of the money we'd save.

    But I'm just a liberal, what do I know...

    that's true, however, good lawyers keep people from going to prison. so, no, it's certainly not a buncha crap. our prisons are not full of rich people, you know.

    what a silly statement. good lawyers cost money. poor people don't have money, they get legal aid. no one is "impuning" anything as "bigotted", that's how the system works in a capitalistic society.

    Wait, are you actually supporting the death sentence or are you being sarcastic?

    Well, if you can't afford a good lawyer perhaps you shouldn't be breaking laws that would create your need for one.

    holy sheet. one of the most insightful honest statements ever made on DP that's what you get when you take personal responsibility out of the equation. that's why blacks are over-represented by factors of 2 and 3 in the welfare and crime statistics. It is not an innate failure. It is not because blacks are somehow inferior. It is because the leftists have a vested interest in keeping them dependent on the govt teat.

    "Death Sentence" is too expensive.

    The institutionalized animals that will never get out of prison and now just commit brutal crimes while living out their lives in prison... If they all went missing, I wouldn't care.

    I really think one thing pushing these problems is that we throw way too many people into jail that we probably shouldn't.

    We also house many people who don't deserve our sympathy.
