The state devises and runs the system, it is responsible for its faults.Olds442 said:The state realizes that if the criminal has been found guilty then they should carry out the sentence. It is up to the crminal to prolong the time on death row if he chooses to do so.fluffnik said:My point is that the state should realise that prolonged incarceration under constant threat of death, which is torture, is an inevitable consequence of the system.
Not the state's fault.
That's the Tookie way...Olds442 said:I wish he didn't sit there for 20 years. It would have been easier to take him out back and put a bullet behind his ear.
Explain to me how in the world a hulking man strapped to a gurney in a locked room behind multiple layers of the highest security is a threat to the State of California.Olds442 said:Explain to me how in the world the 7-11 employee laying face down on the ground is a threat to a hulking man with a shotgun.fluffnik said:Tookie was defenseless when by deliberate, pre-meditated action he was killed. That is murder.
Both Tookie and California killed someone just in case they proved to be a threat in the future, neither had that right.
Explain to me how an asian family (man, woman, daughter) shaking in fear is a threat to a hulking man with a shotgun.
What Tookie did is disgusting, what the State of California did is exactly the same.
