Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Selfless has a good connotation, last time I checked. Like performing a selfless deed for someone = altruism.

I don't know, I just can't justify the death penalty in my mind. On top of the point I brought up earlier that it is often invoked for crimes other than murder I've never liked the philosophy of an eye for an eye. One crime does not justify another, no matter who does it. People say it's not a crime because it's the justice system, but I think that's bull. Murder is murder, and whether it's committed by an individual or by the state, it's still murder.

I think it's easy to be separated from horrific events and pass judgement on people who have done bad things, but not everyone who has ever received the death penalty has been a cold blooded psychopath who just kills randomly, and those psychopaths usually end up getting insanity anyways. People do extreme things in extreme situations, it doesn't make them evil people, they've just done a bad thing. There's a maximum security penitentiary here in Southern Manitoba near Winnipeg where they house murderers and dug traffickers and the such, and it has a very large aboriginal population, since aboriginals make up the majority of low income families in the cities and they have a lot of social programs such as pow wows and the such held in there to help the prisoners. And so often I talk to people who go in there to work with the prisoners and they're always astounded by how nice, or how gentle they can be. People get it into their heads that mankind is divided between good and evil, but some people just find themselves in situations where they don't feel they have any other choice (I'm talking mostly about gang violence here, since that is how most of them ended up in there. So yeah, bad actions do not necessarily equal bad people.

After looking at these posts I see a lot of people disagree with me, but that's just how I see it.

Murder by proxy, you mean? That sounds right.

I do not trust a jury of my peers. How many of you say, "FUCK YES! JURY DUTY!" (think of a combination between the jugernaut bitch line, arnold schwarzenegger's i'll be back, and pee-wee's hapy voice all at once). Hell, I don't think you'd let me put my hands all over a sandwhich and then still eat it, let alone have me comprehend the legal system.

You could always argue that we're your peers and get us to be your jury.

I can't support the death penalty in any case.

There are things that you hear about - violent, serial pedophiles, for example - who make me wish that they no longer existed.

But, I cannot support a government having the legal right to murder its own people. That does not strike me as right.

However, this thread was not intended to be a comment on whether or not you think the death penalty is right or wrong. I think what is interesting about it, is the fact that the concern is not about human lives, but about the cheapest option. (And, yes, I forget who said it, but prevention would be the cheapest option. Instead of spending about $50,000 per person per year for incarceration, let's spend $50,000 per child per year on education.) When you're talking about lives, how can you not feel ashamed if your biggest concern is the finances of killing them?
If we weren't such good friends, I'd wish you were dead.
