    But to apply your argument to the gun ban example, if you ban guns, and it stops one person from having a gun and thus commiting a crime with it, is it not worth it?

    I think it's common sense really. If you find someone you are head over heals with and discover that individual has a sexual disease known to cause pain, suffering and death, will you give that individual a go? You might , most would be deterred.

    The death penalty will not deter everyone, that's not the point, but it will deter some, and if it saves even one life it's worth it. I think the numbers of Pataki's NY before he implemented the death sentence, and after is quite revealing.

    Attempting to ban guns has resulted in higher crime rates in Canada and Britain. It's easy to understand why. The thugs don't fear anyone having weapons, and this makes women most vulnerable.

    It's their best defense against an idiot set out to do harm.

    Not all women need carry guns for it to work either, just enough so the scum of society have to think twice, or three times.

    More broadly: Canada's overall crime rate is now 50% higher than the crime rate in the United States. Read that again slowly -- it seems incredible, but it's true. It's true too that you are now more likely to be mugged in Toronto than in New York City.
    Rape – In the 80s and 90s, US rates were higher than most of the Western countries, but by 2000, Canada is leading. Rape reports are lower in Asia and the Middle East.

    Robbery – The past 2 decades saw a steady decline in the US. Countries with more reported robberies than US include England, Wales, Portugal, and Spain. Those with fewer are France, Germany, and Italy, and Asian countries plus the Middle East.

    I was waiting for that. It's a Hazlnut type comment. You've taken the Hazlnut Chair at the DP table. Congratulations!

    You fail to realize we are the only super power nation in history that hasn't gone on a conquest. We have a mighty job to do, protecting the world.
    It's not a pretty job, probably akin to watching sausage being made, but we do it with a pretty clean, but not perfect history.

    We've helped not just nations but continents fix their hellish ways. We defeated the Evil Empire.

    We provide billions to Africa for AIDs assistance (when the EU can't do 1/20th). We are generous and benevolent. Hell, we even came to aid the Europeans with their last war in the Balkans. Not our job, not in our national interest, but we did it because the EU is wholly incompetent and impotent.

    You should move to China and shoot your mouth off. Or Russia. Libya, or some ME country; try with women's rights and gay rights. Perhaps the Ukraine, or one of them "stans" and tell me how the US is no different from barbaric regimes. If you're alive to speak about your experiences.

    Assange is just a figureheead. Other people work at wikileaks who would just replace him.

    Also, the documents are already out. If the documents are doing damage, then the damage is already done. Killing Assange now will do nothing but bring joy to a twisted minority.

    I don't get it.. Why are some people getting overly emotional over this Assange guy? He's not a spy and he was not the person that stole/leaked the govt internal memos.

    What Assange's WikiLeaks and other news outlets did was publish the material that was leaked, so shouldnt theose seeking vengence be directing their rage towards the the person/s that actually gave the material to the news media?

    No, because every problem needs a scapegoat. Better to put the blame in the totally wrong place than look at your own two dirty feet.
