    They have a right to their opinion, but what makes them think we should give it any weight? Europe has so many of it's own problems, that they are in the proverbial glass house throwing stones across the pond.

    During his stay in prison, Tookie assaulted several guards, continued his contact with the Crips, planned many failed prison breaks, continually stonewalled police when they asked for any information on the Crips gange, and wrote two children's books. Am I supposed to ignore everything but the last one? The guy was about as remorseful as I am after killing a spider. If you can get clemency for writing a book, despite continuing violent behavior in prison, we might as well just abolish the death penalty. Of course, we've seen what happens when a society opts for mercy and refuses to see criminals for who they really are. In many places where the death penalty is outlawed, all criminals can be paroled to limit the prison population, and parole restrictions are much lighter, for the same purpose. So, they face something that other places don't, recidivisim. The recidivism for those given the death penalty is 0%, and though you don't often hear this from merciful prison advocates, recidivism for others is pretty high.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that this "enlightened" continent has been invaded more times than my refridgerator. Arkansas has four stars in the middle of its flag, one above the word "Arkansas" for the United States, the other three below it to represent the three other regimes that have ruled it. If any country in Europe did the same, it would take nanites to fit that many stars on the same flag. Europe's arrogance and sense of superiority is legendary, and has been ever since Europeans first discovered that there were places beyond Europe. It's sickening.

    It appears the Europeans are getting an unbaised perspective of Tookie from their media. :rolleyes:

    "Whoever, out of political calculation, allows the death of a person rehabilitated in such an exemplary manner has rejected the basic values of Austrian society," said Peter Pilz, a Greens leader.

    This, from the country that gave us Adolf Hitler.

    That they do and I've yet to notice any Americans bashing their system, though their crime rates continue to rise, while ours fall. Granted they haven't caught us yet, at least officially, but they are on their way.
