First off, the financial drain to the taxpayers is in executions, not in life-inprisonment.
From the excessive court costs, appeals, and petitions to the Govenor-quite often all through the court appointed legal counsels for the defendant-the
cost of capital punishment exceeds that of life imprisonment.
Also, from everything I've read it is NOT a deterant for violent crime as the states that have the death penalty have had an increase in violent
crime since using capital punishment-Texas especially I've read-LOL-all under GW Governor...
so basically it's a violent act of vengeance...well OK, I'm against it personally, but if we must...
Now I wont go to much into the fact many have died wrongful death through execution or cite the sum 100+ cases of death row prisoners who have been
proven innocent and pardoned due to DNA evidence we now have access to...
because this is about TOOKIE the Cryp, right? And we know he is guilty of murder and being a bad person
..so be it then...off with his head! (so to speak)
But all I REALLY see is another diversionary tactic and inciting of seperation of people in this country...
this case is unlike the mass murderer Charles Manson living life imprisonment...yet related...not by muder but by motive...
not motive of the murderer, but of our government's agenda and perpetuated by our media
What stirs up controversey divides the people of this country better than when faced with such subjects as murder, crime, and the death penalty...all
highlighted and broadcasted with biases to incite the masses
There will be strong opinions about religeon, politics, and morals (outside of religious biases) and in the case of a minority, racism etc in such
cases-it's perfect! This is why Tookie died-not because he was a murderer-that was the justification of law and what we'd like to believe as
"justice" being served, but it isn't why he really died.
Some will say-I don't care why he died then-I'm just glad he got what he deserved as a murdering criminal. That's fine, just be aware of the divide
and conquer agenda anyway, ok?
and so, being well publisized, it is being discussed vehemenantly from many sides in this country and it is serving it's purpose to increase the
problems of racism, violence, and prejudism and seperating people on religeous and moral grounds as well...even those who share the same faiths are
arguring over "An eye for an eye" vs the hypocrisy of "Thou shall not kill" justifying capital punishment.
Would we be having this discussion if Charles Manson were to be exectued. Not freakin likely. Who would oppose that? ...if anything, we'd all (for
the most part) unite and go Yea! Or just not care...And those who'd say Nay would be the minority who'd get no publicity in the media anyway-so
there's be no stir...
Therefore...he lives. ANd if you tell me it's about law, I'll tell you the law could be twisted to kill him if it would serve a higher purpse of
controversey in this country. We consume controversy-live and die for it-literally.
So Tookie serves the "divide and conquer" agenda to die
...and it to leave Manson in prison for example where people can be disgusted that their tax dollars are going to give him a cozy life and 3 squares a
day...while such rehabilitated felons such as Tookie, don't get a chance to do some good that they surely would in some people's eyes...serves the
I spoke about this on an AOLl debate baord but apparently some of my views or replies were too controversial as AOL was thriving offf all the
religeous and racist flaming that was going on which I pointed out proved my point of controversy consumerism in this country-we buy into it ALL...and
my thread was yanked (with no appology or explanation from AOL) after getting many intelligent replies
But I'll stop here on the divide and conquer conspiracy of this country and just *try* to post a link for harder facts on things like the cost of
executions vs life imprisionment and the fact the dealth penalty is not a deterrant therefor purely a vengeance see
