I'm glad you talked me down. I can't stand these kinds of stories anymore. Every single day it's a new one. Sorry for getting upset but I do
believe what I type except without all the typo's.
Typonese as a second language was a big help.
Yes, I agree. Every day its another one of these stories. Which is when you know you are being propagandized.
Or at least should get your bs meter peaked.
I also find that if a story is appealing to my emotional response rather than a logical one, its usually propaganda with an agenda. Im also guilty at
times, like I said we are all susceptible to emotional responses if the right buttons are pressed. The key is to be able to spot when its happening so
you can ignore it. Or at least register it.
As for your thoughts on execution, thats a hot potato, and you are entitled to your opinion. This is exactly the freedom of expression I would fight
and die for your right to have.
I would happily pay for a murderer to rot away in prison, haunted daily by his crimes and loss of liberty, rather than see them get a quick ticket
away from punishment, and it also provides a get out for the people that get set up, or wrongly convicted if they later get real justice and released.
As for an eye for an eye, heres a very hypothetical question....
Lets say your child is kidnapped and raped by a paedophile, but is found safely afterwards, does that give you the right to go and rape the
paedophiles own child?
Or does that give the state the right to rape the paedophiles child?
My point is you dont become a killer to serve justice for murder. Then you become guilty of the very crime you are prosecuting against. Hypocrisy
And my single most powerful argument against prisoner execution is the fact that many people convicted of crimes are 100% innocent.
