DON'T FRET TOO MUCH ABOUT THAT SUPREME COURT DECISION

by Mark5019 / March 3, 2005 9:43 PM PST

Think about it. Death would the the easy way out for these teenaged murderers. I'm not all that strong a proponent of the death penalty anyway. We make celebrities out of people on death row with movies, newspaper and magazine stories and legions of fawning "activists" working endlessly to save their worthless lives. I'm of the opinion that a much worst punishment is to be sentenced to life in prison with absolutely no possibility of parole.

The way things are now, when you're sitting at that table and you hear the judge sentence you to death, you have no expectation that the sentence will be carried out anytime within the next decade. That death sentence is just another step for you in your legal journey. But when you hear a judge sentence you to life in prison with no possibility of parole, you know that when you are led from that courtroom that your life has changed forever --- and not for the better. You will soon be locked behind the gates at a prison, and there you will stay until you die. No activists, no newspaper articles, no prime time specials, no vigils ... just day after day after day of life behind bars with your buddies


works for me if you think about it Grin

separate threads pertaining to the same subject, mark...just wondering if you could post your updates to a thread that's already discussing the same topic so people don't have to jump from each one to keep discussing it. Thanks.
