Mia - im with you It actually sickens me to think that people in places that could do something are like 'well.... have you signed all the paperwork? no? oh im sorry, its too late now, he'll just have to die'

As most people here know i am vehelmently against the death penalty in ALL situations. Nothing is learnt, nothing is gained, and as i've said again and again we live in a world where not everything is 100% right, and not everyone is a non judgemental person etc
This man was convicted to death because he rode in a car with another guy who killed someone? WTF? Seriously... how can that even BE??

Snowlock - i know you're trying to be all contrversial and that, but you are so far off the mark it isn't funny. Truth be told i'd rather live in a world with the guy in the story then in a world with someone like you.

To make anger over one case into anti-establishment in general is a much bigger leap than any "leap" you claim for every single other person in this thread to have made.

There's a point when after 20-25 other people have posted, maybe they aren't all completely nuts and making huge leaps to be "anti-establishment."

Most of your comments have been very offensive. I don't desire to address them.

The key here is that there is no evidence. Your and a few others' hunches are what you have. The law that you claim "worked for once" here isn't based on hunches.

I know you're pro-DP, and that's your opinion, but sometimes you need to "grow out of" your blood thirst and actually see that there's no reason to kill this man.

That's not to say I think this is how things should be done, period. This is more of a happy accident, like tripping on the sidewalk and finding a 5 dollar bill in the grass.

I hate predators, and I'm very happy to see them get theirs.
I haven't looked at this thread until now (because I knew where it would go), but Snowlock, you are one very creepy dude.

I question the maturity of anyone who still says "anti-establishment."

I'm anti-DP, but this is a little disingenious.

Singapore....Japan......

Correlation between DP and Homicide rate ? None

Good idea.

This was great news to come "home" to. However, I'm still alarmed at why he should even be given a life sentence. He's already served time for not doing anything. Time to set the man free!

Well...I dunno about that. Personally I think Mumia deserves another, and FAIR trial. I don't know if I'm at liberty to say whether I think he is innocent or guilty. But I like your enthusiasm

Mumia might actually be guilty, but that trial was a complete circus...guilty maybe, but beyond a reasonable doubt? No way.

My ex was a staunch republican, no holds barred pro-DP, the whole thing...until she read my copy of "Live from Death Row". Poof, no more republican, anti-DP, complete 180. It was amazing to see actually.
