    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Speeding is illegal too, Spud. It's all a matter of degree and what the appropriate reaction should be when someone commits a capital crime.

    That's your opinion only. You do not speak for me.
    Unfortunately the the victim is already dead and unfortunately nothing will bring him back. Taking the life of a murderer will never be an equal trade for someone i loved.

    We've been over this before. I accept you feel differently and it's about time you did the same.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Ok, I'll accept that you believe capital murder to be merely "unfortunate".

    I would expect nothing less of you. That's just how you roll. Reading comprehension is not your strong point. Never has been, never will.

    Once again, taking the life of a murderer will never be an equal trade for someone i love.

    Hummmm, coulda swore I saw the word "unfortunately" used a couple times.

    Ok then, your argument is that the DP should not be used because it's not an equal trade. I'd assume you think the same as prison, so does that mean you oppose prison as well? Really, if we just blithely dismiss the victim with an "oh well, nothing we can do about that now", then no punishment should ever be imposed since no punishment will actually ever bring the murdered back,

    Sorry, I'm missing how that's an answer to my questions. I do like beer though.

    When you drop a $100 bill, do you take a single out of your pocket and burn it?

    Against it. Since the justice system isn't perfect innocents might end up being accused as guilty and executed, and then there's no return. In the case of locking an innocent up the justice system can always compensate the person for the injustice done to him.
    "The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
