    Cite your source. Some states may have judicial review or appellate provisions for the parole rules, but it's very uncommon... and Federal judges definitely don't have jurisdiction. Maybe it's just a California thing.

    U.S. judges can't overturn parole board rulings - SFGate

    Even if true I'd argue that it doesn't really matter. The government shouldn't be in the business of killing innocent people, even if killing innocent people has the potential to save lives.
    I don't think you're getting it. When the government fails to execute a criminal who has been convicted of a capital offense and this criminal kills yet another innocent person, the government is in the business of killing innocent people.


    Edit: Thinking about it more, I'm even more against that line of reasoning. That opens up a huge can of worms about denying innocent people rights for the "greater good." Not something we should be doing.
    What in the world are you blabbering about here? Am I expected to pull out a ouija board so to interpret this cryptic nonsense?

    Re: Death Penalty in Theory

    i fully and 100% support the death penalty.

    In fact i would expand on it if it was up to me to be an OPTION for rape and child molestation.

    now with that said i do have some issues with the process to get there, in todays world with DNA and Video etc the cases end up pretty lock tight but not so much in the past.

    So, can we dispense with the lengthy appeals process in recent convictions?

    A more direct question would be, do you think the current appeal process of 10-15 years is a bit excessive for a conviction based upon DNA evidence?
