    I thought there were always parole boards. Do lone judges decide that?

    I am pretty sure that Judges have nothing to do with the actual parole...

    Well then I dont suppose he would be able to cite a few examples of who liberal judges paroled then.

    Liberal judges only? Dang those liberal judges. Somebody needs to clean house. Put all conservative judges in. Then justice will be served.



    Navy...not even you believe that's how all early murder paroles happen.

    You ignore the fact that while DNA is effective, it is not always present in capital cases. People can receive the death penalty without any DNA evidence introduced.

    Do you think that it is fair to send someone to their death based on whether something is effective "a huge majority of the time?" You own statement admits that there are times when DNA is not effective. In those cases when it is not effective, either because it has been improperly handled or for some other reason, the risk is there that an innocent person would be executed.

    Innocent people have been and will continue to be executed as long as the death penalty continues to exist.

    In Georgia (not sure about your state) no judge has the authority to release an inmate on parole. And in Georgia, life means life. The same is true in almost every state that still has the death penalty.

The only question will be how deaf an ear, or how blind an eye will people turn in order to turn a frog into a prince." -Eddie Huff

    The judges are actually the one that decide.......They can overrule a parole board but rarely do.
