I'm not as sanguine about the death penalty as that list may possibly imply. Its there as a balancer, to remind this thread of victims that didnt get anything remotely close to a judicial process, recorded final statements being the least significant in their "process".I think its possible to be deeply respectful to the victims and kin, mindful of the loss and harm inflicted by the perpetrators to them and to society at large, firmly non-mitigative about their crimes.... and also not necessarily have to execute the perpetrators.Its at the next stage, where the perps have allegedly reformed and are to be released back to society, that I have some worries.rgds,Jai
Can you research and comment on this case ? One of the most disturbing. Googling etc allowed.
AmOK, no doubt you mean this excellent piece of journalism from the New Yorker. Exactly why the death penalty is so troubling.
I didnt know abt Willingham earlier, but was posting from memory that modern investigative techniques esp. DNA have exonerated a couple of executed convicts from the 70s somewhere (I think in the US).Here's a link with some new updates:http://reason.com/blog/2009/10/16/more-strange-turns-in-texas-porgds,Jai
