i commented on advances in forensic science.

also technology can further enhance a case these days.

has to be checks & balances in a death penalty case.

a tough standard has to be met.

which is why i support the lengthy legal process that often happens.

People twenty years ago thought their advances meant that people wouldn't be wrongly executed. And yet they still were. And no doubt people will still be executed.

DNA evidence isn't always as black and white as you'd think. Sometimes someone can have reason for their DNA to be at the scene without being guilty.

Definitely not true in the US.
Pretty sure that fact refers to the US. Remember how long prisoners spend on death row anyway, and then add in all the legal costs. It's not hard to believe it costs more to execute someone.

It's probably less likely to apply to Saudi Arabia or some other primitive country where justice is even worse than the States.


Prison industry has mostly been privatized in the United States, so I am not sure how true the statement is.

The Vera Institute of Justice released a study in 2012 that found the aggregate cost of prisons in 2010 in the 40 states that participated was $39 billion.

The annual average taxpayer cost in these states was $31,286 per inmate.

New York State was the most expensive, with an average cost of $60,000 per prison inmate.

Would be interesting to dig deeper on the data, but you would think the non-death row inmates would have a more robust interaction with the average.

www.deathpenalty.org/article.php?id=42 Granted the website itself is an anti-death penalty one, but it sources some data from seemingly less biased sources.

Never, far too many shades of grey and you can get the decision wrong and murder someone incorrectly far too easily.

I know where you are coming from, in cases like the one where that Michael Adebolajo chopped that Lee Rigby's lid off in broad day light in the middle of the street and was shouting on about Jihad with blood all over his hands and admitted it and video footage, witnesses etc there is no case for error and you could argue it therefore has a case, however where do you draw the line?

Life will throw up cases where evidence becomes questionable and that is where errors can be made, life ain't black and white, plus it's fucking barbaric, two wrongs don't make a right I was always told.

britain's darkest taboo's on sunday.

this young guy murdered the mother of his newly born kid.

nearly killed the brother.

he broke in the house to carry out the crime.

pleaded not guilty and showed no remorse.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-TCOTU-19682619

100% deserves the death penalty.

So by your theory we should kill all the police involved in Hillsborough, eh, eddie? What's your preferred method? Pile them into a football ground and crush them?

It's amazing how many foes of the 'big state' think it should have the power to kill people.

On the doorstep [Siouxsie] asks me whether right or left would be the best direction to find a taxi, and although her best bet would be left, I suggest she turns right. It is churlish of me, but it is she who has set the pace.
