I don’t think it belongs here
The uncertainty argument is well-noted and why I’m not generally a proponent of capital punishment...but for that reason only...that innocent people could be murdered as falsely convicted criminals. I was referring here to the moral argument about the death penalty, with theoretical certainty that the person is guilty of a crime like this.
I read this and thought I had misremembered the age of the girl.
Nope my memory wasn't bad. The girl was five.
I guess Adrian Peterson is mentoring again? wtf
Former Patriots Running Back Indicted For Murder, 20 Felony Child Abuse Charges
There was one website that did just that.. Of course, it was for click-bait, but still disgusting.
Its a sham. All that wasted money and hot air. Then add the ease of pulling the "nuclear option" with the current cultural environment and debilitating legal ramifications there (keep in mind falsifying a police report is more or less never tried by DAs, so the A+B claim is a just a consequenceless shot at an easy walk to railroading the father of your children).
Its all a farce. Seems like something out of "catch-22."
Morally, I don't see the point of capital punishment except for absolute outliers on the level of genocide.
Either way if you reduce it down to morals then it becomes a complete gut feeling level question because everyone will have their own anecdotal perspective on it. Not sure whats the point of that here.
I've seen this first hand. It happened to a buddy of mine. The state was clearly not thinking in the best interests for the child.
Used to support the death penalty for a long time. However, over the years my stance has changed. Sometimes death is too light a sentence for some of these freaky people. Just wish they could guarantee the inmate a long hard life sentence for certain crimes. Fed 3 basics with excruciating hard work 6 days a week with far fewer privileges for that 7th day to reflect for their crime in a barren jail cell. I’m ok paying taxes on that rather than waiting multiple stays over 20+ years for an execution to actually take place.
Damn you training camp, can you already start ?
Yah, I've gone away from favoring the death penalty. Too many wrongfully convicted people. Even in good faith. But the major reason is I no longer trust the government and people in positions of authority sufficiently. Certainly not everyone or the majority, it just takes a few with agendas.
That’s fair...it is a sick topic
That sure is some conclusion you jumped to off of this story
You think that buying a product endorses everything that happens to everyone related in any way to that product? You wouldn’t be able to buy any product if that was the case.
The argument is that the State is not qualified to determine whether one of its citizens deserves to die. Frankly, it is frightening that you can observe how people and governments operate and come to the opposition conclusion.
The state is a jury?
No the State is the one using its vast resources to try to persuade 12 halfwits that one of their fellow citizens deserves to die.
That kid never stood a chance being born to a careless mom who couldn't protect her.
Throw both of them under the jail.
