    I'm happy you side with me! Altogether, we are a happier society without the death penalty.

    I'd say an international tribunal should rule on it.

    You make excellent points and I agree with them.
    My point is there needs to be severe punishment to fit severe crimes that would send a message to people so they will rethink their actions.
    I think giving people a time out on death row, or life in prison is the wrong message.

    What about O.J. Simpson? Everybody knew he killed his wife Nicole and her friend. Thanks to an influential Jewish Lawyer, Dershowitz, he was acquitted of a double murder for reasons that...

    Mr. Simpson does not have a long criminal record;
    execution is generally not sought for the killing of a spouse, and
    there is the enduring public affection for Mr. Simpson.

    It clearly shows it matters who you are! A Joe Blow from the button factory would not have gotten away like O.J. did.
    Any thoughts on this from the peanut gallery?

    Oh not OJ again and that wreck of a trial.

    OJ who was later found guilty of the murders in a civil court and was in fact quilty of them?

    OJ who is held in reprehensible terms by the vast majority of the public?

    What about him?

    HOLY COW! I'm sorry to hear all that stuff happened to you. I had COBRA once, what a rip-off!

    Thing is I survived or we survived. Tried buying sa business in the field I was in but with saving drained could not get the Capital. If Inwas a designated minority maybe but no one gave two Schiests about White Veterans who were not on drugs back then.
