    Correct me if I am wrong, but the information posted says charged with "attempted Murder".

    I don't believe the penalty for attempted murder is ever execution, so I would say no for both. If the facts stated are true and these individuals were murdered , I would have to be consistent and believe they would deserve the death penalty just like any other criminal. I don't thinkt that will happen because I don't believe they will be able to prove that it was premeditated.

    I do have a question for OP that I am curious about....

    Why do you expect cops to tell the truth about other cops when your culture won't cooperate with cops and tell them who commits crimes in your neighborhoods? Why do you have a "no snitching" policy but don't allow them to have the same?

    Just curious.

    Since they like the up close and personal approach I say send em to iraq with a bottle of water and a shovel. They can walk point for one of our units doing a security patrol.

    Title 18 U.S.C. Section 242 does not require premeditation, and it is not a murder statute. It is a civil rights statute, and only those officers who actually caused death would be liable to the death penalty under it. Sergeant A and Officer A - if the statement in the bill of information is true - would be death penalty eligible for unlawfully depriving Madison of his right to life under color of law.


    I'm not sure what your comment about my "culture" means, what do you even know of my "culture" ?

    Oh Lord.... here we go again from the punishment junkies. We have a process to deal with people who are FOUND GUILTY of crimes. No need for drooling idiots to come up with their own particular forms of punishment.

    Why don't people want the law applied? Under "Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law", Officer A and Sergeant are liable for the death penalty, why does no one want it applied? Because they are cops and cops are above the law?

    I understand your point, however there is something that I believe you dont' understand.

    To be convicted under that statute, you have to convict them based on the fact that they went there intending to deprive these individuals of their civil rights.

    It is NOT the case that you can convict if the perps ENDED UP depriving them of their civil rights, but that they went there with that intention. That is pretty difficult to prove.

    This is why the Rodney King cops were not convicted... they couldn't prove that they intended to deny him his civil rights.

    Prosecute them under the murder statute.
