It must have been a typo.
Like Ron Paul said, non-violent crimes don't warrant a punishment,

I don't think either are too inhumane for those people who commit the crimes that would get them punished with them. Either they get a room and three meals a day or they're put to death in a controlled way. That's a lot more humanity than they showed their victims.

One of the things I believe is that if there is irrefutable DNA evidence in the case, then the perpetrator should be executed with 2 hours. He gets time to say goodbye to family, which he does NOT deserve, but dies very fast.
On the other side of that, for all the argumentation that you can come back with, any prosecutor that manufactures or hides or manipulates evidence that destroys an innocent person needs to be subject to the same 2 hours with the same result.
For if prosecutors understood that their life was REALLY, not simply politically on the line, they will act differently.edit on 15-7-2012 by akalepos because: fergot a word
