Is it not a contradiction to murder someone for murder?


I guess its also a "contradiction" to arrest and put someone in prison for kidnapping then.

I'm surprised no one here said, 'I would say the same thing.' ;)

The authors calculated that, if the Governor commuted the sentences of those remaining on death row to life without parole, it would result in an immediate savings of $170 million per year, with a savings of $5 billion over the next 20 years.

Helps to be informed about the issues you support. but hey, America has LOTS of money and has no need to save 170 Million per year, in ONE state...

So where is your source for your claim? Provide proof. Otherwise it's urban myth



Just in case you accidentally missed it in the posting frenzy, I Wouldn't think you ignored it on purpose or anything.

haha, good point actually.

But I think perhaps it isn't quite the same, as it's not an unnecessarily indulgent revenge.

At least he went out on his own terms. Not many people can say that.

Seems that he would have continued living his corrupt life had he not gotten caught. He did murder the son of someone testifying after all.

In the end he couldn't handle not being in control and that's why he wanted to die.

Unlike Most Americans that go into your punishment system, at least this guy acknowledged he did wrong and took responsibility for it. He seemed a good candidate for someone who knew he did wrong and could have been rehabilitated, if you had a working "correctional" system.

I don't think that was the case. He wanted to die because he was used to being a boss. In prison, you're told when to sleep, eat, and can't leave your cell. He wanted it to be over with. He continued killing inmates as a means to make it happen.

People with your point of view should be on a registry so you can support keeping those criminals alive with your donations.

Not many people still speak Gaelic, interesting he would choose that language to utter his last words in.


Maybe in the US they don't, in Scotland we've still got radio and TV channels that broadcast in gaelic. Obviously not as many as english channels but they do still exist.
