[quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="MattMeyerBud"]again we weren't talking about the system over all
u were responding to me being in favor of the death penalty
we were past that, I talked about how I see both sides of it, the Death Penalty could save tax payer money, Jailing people cost Tax payers a TON of money every year and America has more people in jail then most other countries percentage wise, that said the semi-recent discover of DNA Evidence has freed quite a few innocent people that may have been killed had the death penalty been allowed in their states....so I see both sides.
to which you responded something like....But CA she definitely deserved it you know right?
That caused the topic switch, I went on to discuss the topic of how you arrive at the death penalty as a punishment....the burden of proof required, the conviction, the difference between first and second degree murder charges etc etc....
all of which you pretty much ignored....and kept pressing on about how CA "Deserved" it but you never explained "why" as far as I can tell you think she deserved it (even though she was proven Innocent) because she thought pigs fly or something....you have no basis for it, besides your emotional response behind what you "think" she did.
I broght Dr.K up to parallel the situation, to show you someone else who committed a similar crime in the eyes of the law, meaning a premeditate murder(s) and I used him because I knew you wouldn't have wanted him to get the Death Penalty because I can tell that you would see the crimes differently, but in the fashion that I brought it up for discussion the two (supposed) crimes are actually quite similar...but you then latched on to the actual outcome of the Dr.K. case....which...is irrelevant...we never got an outcome to the CA case (except we did she was innocent) thus we can't compare the sentences.
the point I was making all along though was that you have no real basis to say CA deserved the Death Penalty but Dr.K doesn't...you don't have a logical reason behind those comments it's all a gut feeling on your part...and gut feelings shouldn't be what decide whether a person is put to death or not.......in my opinion.
