gryphon strike Posted November 11, 2008 Share Posted November 11, 2008 [quote name='Paxter' post='1582785' date='Nov 9 2008, 12.56']At least then we don't have a hypocritical justice system that simultaneously prohibits and endorses the complete destruction of human life.[/quote] The thing is that it is hypocritical Paxter, the idea behind the death penalty is that in some circumstances the risk outweighs the possability of rehabilitation thus since they have already decided the law does not apply to them ( you know killing stealing etc ) they have no right to its protection thus the are removed from being a threat or burden to a legal society. Yeah its convoluted but makes more sense than leaving them alive as a punishment to the society. The thing is that all too often innocent people get convicted either due to incompetance of the legal system or a deliberate miscarriage of justice ( say police framing someone ). Thus I personally do not agree with it. Nice headline Stubby :P and EEEWWW genital warts! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
