As far as the second part of your post, I can't find any concrete numbers one way or the other, but I've seen dozens of videos in class and out showing such-and-such a murder trial, and the family wishing for the DP.


why is the USA the only developed nation to implement the death penalty? why do you think the rest of the developed world doesn't use it as a punishment?

I was mostly referring to the length of the sentences.

BBC NEWS | UK | Murder sentence changes unveiled


Kill someone, confess immediately, serve 10 yrs.

We have murderers that get released with less time and without such stringent circumstances as those...

How the fuck should I know why they kill each other less? I know it'd be simple to proclaim it just guns, but I don't pretend it's that shallow. Again, why is their murder rate so much higher than Japan? I guess people are different.

Primarily I would say people die because of the relationships they choose. Your chances of being killed by a stranger are remarkably slim, so watch out for those you know.

it's been done. you don't seem to want to hear anything that disproves whatever you wish to believe, and when you're confronted with such evidence, you resort to lines like the above.

^That^ and economics/poverty.

But the death penalty isn't a deterrent to all this violence, or is it? (I say it's not)

um, you got me? is that what you were trying to do? is it much of a shocker that it would be impossible for me to vote for the GOP on a national ticket?

or have you, again, run out of gas and are going to start calling people cunts and n*ggers?

all the gun data is effectively presented in the gun thread.
