    ***** No - I'm past my Prime and a little too wary of Internet BS. However the outfit that provides NBC's Chris Hansen with the fodder for this amusing crap are little better than the Witch Hunters of Centuries ago. Some would just as easily go after someone Wearing a Crucifix if that was a Crime.

    How many have been accused, convicted, did or doing the time ...
    Only to find out years later they never did the crime.

    Do we castrate them also???

    Why not? You don't seem to have a problem with the fact that they've spent years in prison for a crime they didn't commit, after all.

    It isn't. I'm just pointing out the logical conclusion of your arguments-- if we cannot kill a convicted murderer or castrate a convicted rapist because of the possibility that they might be innocent, how can we justify putting them in prison? How can we justify any penalty?

    Our system makes mistakes. It always has and it always will. But we cannot allow the fact that it makes mistakes to make us fearful of doing what is necessary. Sentencing an innocent person is a terrible injustice, but it is less of an injustice than what would occur without a functional justice system.

    Wouldn't that include making sure the person is guilty before doing irreversible damage to them?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    That is what trial by jury and Constitutional safeguards are for. Also, why there is an appeals process.

    Jesus Christ I can't believe anybody voted yes.

    Clear violation of constitutional rights. My god. Let's cut the hands off of thieves and stone people who work on the sabbath while we're at it.

    Texas recently discovered that they executed an innocent man. He'd gone through all of the appeals.
