Ashcroft dictates maxmium punishment for federal crimes and seek death penalty whenever posssible. I am speechless.

"Ashcroft said his intent is to bring greater consistency to criminal prosecutions around the country.

"It's a direction for the way we prosecute criminal behavior at the federal level," Ashcroft said Monday after a speech in Cincinnati. "If you violate a federal law, punishment will be uniform." "

"The Ashcroft memo said prosecutors will have a "general duty" to pursue the most serious crimes they feel confident of proving in court."

So long as he and the other criminals in the Bush admin are subject to these terms before their Patriot, Victory and other Acts are repealed, let him maximize the penalties for everything - especially crimes against the country.

It seems the incumbent crooks feel they are in some way above their own laws. The irony of it.
