For the capital punishment fans

I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

Kris Maharaj: Jailed for 31 years in Miami - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40863235

There's little doubt that this is a miscarriage of justice.

If Jasmine had her way, Mr. Maharaj would have been killed 30 years ago, and the actual murderer would be unpunished.


How do the death penalty fans deal with stories like this?
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

The death penalty isn't a punishment. Living the rest of your life thinking about your crime is.
  

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, when I was dead broke I couldn't picture this.

Many people have been convicted only to have their convictions overturned based on police incompetence or outright deception.  Some prosecutors don't care if they get the actual perpetrator as long as they get a conviction of some kind.

We must end capital punishment based on the fallibility of our system.  We mustn't let some mistake prone bureaucratic machine decide when it's ok to take a citizens life as sanction.

I also agree with Johnny, CP is not punishment and only serves to satisfy the blood lust of people like Jasmine.

There's a reason your take on it will remain nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of truly deplorable and unthinking people.    Smiley
