McDog, yes I am oversimplifying things and I do know that. I will admit to doing a bit of trolling by doing that, however, I do believe in the death penalty and I believe we should revamp the way it is administered. Now, in the U.S. it can take YEARS from being sentenced to actually being executed, the exception was Tim McVeigh (spelling?) in the OK bombing case. He was executed in a much shorter period of time, The crime happened in 1995 and he was executed in 2001. Most live on death row for 20 years or so. We have to speed up the time between sentencing and carrying out said sentence. BTW the death row inmates live very well, they can have anything they want except for women for the rest of their lives. Meals, warm or cool depending on the season, place to live, TV, no work, and YOU pay for it.
I can appreciate that point of view Paddy. Like I said I don't object to the death penalty on a moral basis, only on the one issue I've mentioned numerous times. It's long been one of the most heated debates in our country and I doubt that will ever change. Why should it be any different on our message board haha!
