    Re: Death Penalty

    Disney, What you seem to be forgetting is that I would not just murder that guy. As I said earlier, I would torture him also. For as long as I could. That combined with the murder would most definitely get me the DP. And it is most definitely pre-meditated and I would admit it as such. I may be alot of things but I pride myself on being honest. Even when I got caught for the two felonies that I committed I admitted it to the police when questioned and pleaded guilty in court.

    That would be like sending me a questionnaire to ask if I have always paid my taxes.

    "You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    Sorry....still ain't buying it. If you "anger" was as strong as you claim that you would torture him for as long as you could, you wouldn't sit and think rationally and let the DP dissuade you. Sorry...that boat doesn't float.

    Everybody gets really angry and doesn't react due to thinking. Be serious for a minute. You have never gotten so angry that you wanted to throw your cell phone at the wall or anthing and didn't because you realized that you would only have to buy a new phone? I am not an angry person in the slightest and I have gotten that angry once or twice. I would say that his boat is not only floating... it has wings and is geting ready for lift off.

    Throwing your cell phone at the wall and torturing people are extremely different...not even in the same ballpark.

    Obviously... and that is not the point. Anger is.

    No, the point is self-control.

    And maybe mental issues.

    Right...Self control when angry. Anger. Anger and the ability to control it. People who get, and are, angry can control it and Disney's argument that you can't is hog wash.
