NiteStryker;5042908Ok I'll meet you half way: What if the person was unquestionably guilty? He admits to it, ten thousand people say "ya it was him who set the car bomb infront of a abortion clinic", there is survelence video showing him setting the bomb and he is wearing a T-shirt with his name and address and full social security number, and the side of the car says his name and address, and you go to his house to arrest him after the bomb, and he is there with pictures and plans all laid out on display, and he says "are you here to arrest me for blowing up the clinic that I just did with that white unmarked van license plate number xxxxxxx".

Do you put him to death?

Or say, fast forward 50 years, and we have the technology to read memories locked in the brain. You scan someone and see he committed a fucked up crime (something worse tham simple robbery since nobody gets death for that, even tho I think they should). You would support it then?

I wouldn't support reading people's memories in the first place, but if the person has admitted they did it and is backed up by the evidence that is a whole different story.

You get the anology. Nothing is 100 % but you dont throw the baby out with the bath water. You might walk outside today and get shot. Your security in life isnt even 100 %, but you still go outside, right?

Like I said, you can't make life %100 safe, but you can make the death penalty %100 safe my removing it.

No but you get an auto-appeal from the first conviction. So if somehow Todd got banned and his IP wasnt verified or the admin who did it fucked up and banned the wrong person, or you see the fake Tod still posting around here, you could undo it.

Yes, to be safe we allow death row inmates many attempts at an appeal, which means the death penalty is more expensive(and thus, "logically" worse) then life in prison.

You can make the legal death penalty nonexistent, but I sure hope to god there would be a vigilante out there who would do the job.

How do you figure? Life in prision is a set cost per day for as long as they live. Combined with mandatory health care and all the extra crap. Meanwhile, if the death penalty went thru as it should, you should be dead in like 10 years. So Im not sure if all the appeals costs are roughly equal to the years you would spend during a life sentence.
