    Prove that they can't.

    then kindly direct your death penalty comments to "those people" and not me.
    Are you nuts? You've been the one continually quoting my posts and trying to attack them. Believe me, it doesn't bother me in the least if you decide to bow out of this argument.

    1) what would make anyone think that?
    and
    2) what would make these guys think that?

    and, anticipating your reply, wouldn't that confirm my original scenario?

    I don't believe I have. It's up to experts to decide if rehabilitation is successful or not. How can anyone know until it's tried? Lol! You guys are just too much!

    Of course they don't. People don't commit crimes because they think they'll be caught. They do it because they think they will NOT be caught, and that is ridiculous to suggest otherwise. What do you mean "what would make these guys think that?" I've provided enough links here to answer your questions. READ them.

    missed the point. YOU are the one who keeps harping on the death penalty...not me. if you want to argue death penalty, do it with the people who are claiming to want these 3 scumbuckets killed.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Then STOP quoting me.
    sure, just as soon as you stop replying to my posts with irrelevant crap about the death penalty

    Why would these guys think they wouldn't be caught ... can you summarize for me?

    I haven't read where they took great pains to cover their tracks.
    I haven't read where they tried to establish an alibi for each of them.
    Did they wear disguises? Did they paint the black car white?

    Are you sure you're not confusing "no fear of being caught" with "driven by something that overrides the fear of being caught".

    What experts claim that folks who kill for the thrill of it (e.g. serial killers) can be rehabilitated?

    While a few morons assume that juveniles can still get the DP, the SCOTUS said no, so it is a non-issue.
