    Except that a lot of guys sent to Death Row didn't murder anyone, that's the problem.

    I notice you didn't even address my essay about Rolando Cruz.

    No, the America I love doesn't execute innocent people because cops were bad at their jobs. That's kind of the opposite of what America is.

    As usual you completly bastardize what is being discussed for your own perverse lie filled agenda.

    Studies show that 97.6% of those who receive capital punishment don't re-offend.

    Hard to argue with that success rate.

    Again, in IL, we had a bunch of cases where we let guys off because of police or prosecutor misconduct putting innocent men on death row. It became so bad that a REPUBLICAN governor, George Ryan, decided he had to commute the sentences of 167 people because even he couldn't tell which ones were really, really guilty

    Studies have shown that capital punishment is not a deterrent to crimes, not murder, not any crime. Criminals don't care. They are stupid. They think they won't get caught.

    It is a deterrent if you take them out of this world. Nobody has ever come back from the other side, to commit another crime, now have they?

    Not a single criminal that I know of.
