    Like Hell it's reversible. You can't give a man ten years of his life back any more than you can sew his testicles back on. You can't undo the damage that being put in prison does to a person, or the damage that will be done to them by the other prisoners.

    I disagree. We've had enough innocent people on death row that I'm in favor of eliminating it entirely. One innocent person is enough.

    And lest anyone think I'm soft on crime, please disabuse yourself of that notion.

    There is a difference between mental "damage" and physical damage. You can never grow new testicles. But you can spend ten years of your life in prison and still be a well-adjusted and happy person upon release.

    It's sure as hell more reversible than cutting off his wang. You can't give him back those ten years, but at least you can release him. Can you regrow a wang?

    "Upon release?" When you've got no job, and have a hard time getting a job because you're a convict?

    Maybe after years of therapy and strong medication.

    I've always found liquor to be considerably quicker.

    Or if you pulled a buddha and stared at a wall exuding nothingness for the entire time between meals.

    You aren't a convict, if your sentence was overturned. And they generally give you a generous settlement in cases like that. And for at least some people, spending time in captivity only makes you appreciate the good things in life. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

    One bullet in the back of the head or a piece of rope is not that expensive, and that is how we shuold handle the DP. Why are we spending tons of money "humanely" killing inhuman pieces of **** that won't or can't live within the bounds of civilized society?
