Of course, practically speaking, with the forensic science, technological surveillance and other improvements, the chances of getting wrongfully convicted of a major felony are diminishing. Those released for wrongful conviction were typically convicted prior to things like quality DNA matching.

    They had gun regulations in the old west, too. A lot of towns required you to turn in your guns at the sheriffs office before entering town and you could pick em up on your way out.

    Are you kidding me? A person can execute 20 folks in front of witnesses, but so long as no DNA transfer exists then no DP option? Bullets and bombs rarely leave DNA trace evidence. Do we have any DNA evidence for KSM?

    No, only a few. That's more Hollywood than history.

    Fact is, with more people totin' guns and public executions, the crime rate was significantly lower.

    I think the more the courts start relying on DNA evidence the less we'll see of innocent people on death row...or at least I hope so. I don't like the death penalty but I understand why some of the victim's families often do.

    After the Civil War and all during reconstruction there was a lot of crime and more often than not, the public sympathized more with the criminals, than they did the law.

    No one is talking about letting murderers go free. We're talking about life in prison.

    As long as we keep finding people not guilty of murder decades after their conviction, the Death Penalty will be morally suspect.

    I have no problem with people shooting violent felons in the act of attacking innocents. If you are an illegal (crime one) you commit a felony (Crime two) and then are deported and come back (crime three) yeah waste them. They obviously didn't learn the first or second time.
