quote of the day

Terrorists are not criminals like pickpockets and car thieves—their offenses are not against individuals or a particular country, but against civilization itself.

(Shamelessly stolen from here)

That's why I disagree with this ruling. The bastard is a rabid dog and the only "charge" he needs is from an electric chair. I don't know why we've bothered to feed him this long. He needs one of those mysterious fatal "accidents" that often occur in prison.

I also disagree with this decision. Some "juvenile" killers deserve the death penalty. They knew what they were doing when they committed their crimes. They should pay the ultimate price.

Besides, I know what "life in prison" actually means in this country. It means that the bastard will be back on the street one of these days. Just read about the Allday killings in Georgia or read The Onion Field by Joseph Wambaugh. You've got to be a crazy fuck such as Charles Manson to actually serve a life sentence in the United States today.

I'm a nasty old man. I believe in REVENGE. I don't give a shit about a debate over whether the death penalty is a deterrent to crime or not. It'll damn sure deter THAT BASTARD from ever doing it again. I believe in an eye for an eye.

And I don't care how old the perp is.

Regarding Padilla:

You're OK with an American citizen being held for 2 1/2 years with no charges being leveled, other than, "we believe he's a terrorist"?

Are you fucking nuts?

This is America, not Stalin's Russia.

Padilla is as guilty as shit.

He probably is guilty, I agree. So let's charge him, try him, then fry him.

We need to follow our laws even for the most vile of criminals.

Ya got me, Mike. I can't argue with your last comment. Charge him and try him. That's the way our government is supposed to operate.

Actually, Manson comes up for parole every now and again. Last time, he turned it down himself, because he said he wanted to work on his web page. If he tried for it, even he could probably get out.

The justice system baffles me sometimes.

This poor kid?

I still remember the terror that many people felt when the pursuit was on.

Good riddance!

I'm okay with the revenge/punishment thing but my main concern is that some of these critters don't belong amongst other people.

This decision pretty much closes the door on frying that fuckwad sniper who was shooting people from the trunk of the car. He was 17 at the time. There's a lad who doesn't belong with regular people either. Maybe he can get enough consecutive life sentences that his ass will stay in prison for the rest of his days.
