Where are all the people that oppose capital punishment?
TBR says2015-04-04T15:14:39.1177434-05:00
Right here, and right in the count above. The totals are falling in-line with public support generally.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T15:19:16.3307148-05:00
At 3:14 there was only one, now at 4:19 there is only 3
TBR says2015-04-04T16:17:22.7144170-05:00
Mathgeekjoe says - As of this comment, it was 9/3. So.... One more "opposed" at it would be RIGHT IN LINE with national poll numbers. Http://www.Gallup.Com/poll/1606/death-penalty.Aspx
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:05:32.1458762-05:00
I always thought there were more of you.
TBR says2015-04-04T17:06:56.9151894-05:00
Nope. The hang-em-high crew have enjoyed statistical superiority since the early 70's
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:10:48.2293366-05:00
I guess death penalty opposers are just louder.
TBR says2015-04-04T17:14:21.4620056-05:00
Funny. I went to a execution protest in Illinois one night. The "pro" were simply NUTS. They were having a screaming party, the anti crowd were separated for their own safety. Quite as mice.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:16:24.8259084-05:00
Your using another metaphor I haven't heard of. First swinging a dead cat and now quite as mice.
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T17:17:52.0260061-05:00
I think he meant quiet as mice.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:18:28.2219344-05:00
Still haven't heard of it before.
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T17:19:13.5772977-05:00
Seriously? Never heard anything like quiet as a mouse?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:19:59.4308737-05:00
TBR said the same thing when I said I haven't heard of swing a dead cat.
TBR says2015-04-04T17:22:57.2778351-05:00
Mathgeekjoe - Where is the rock you are living under located?
TBR says2015-04-04T17:23:27.8108182-05:00
Never herd that one either?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:23:33.4279623-05:00
Somewhere in the middle of nowhere where people don't use metaphors.
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T17:24:05.9559964-05:00
To be honest, I don't think I've heard swinging a dead cat.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:26:11.1474074-05:00
Well apparently quiet as a mouse means silent. My personally experience with mice is the opposite.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:26:29.5422792-05:00
I googled it.
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T17:27:22.7924450-05:00
I don't think I've had much 'personal' experience with mice.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:29:29.4022496-05:00
They can be very loud when they chew through stuff or scurry around into stuff.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-04T17:29:39.5429523-05:00
Illinois needs to bring back the death penalty
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T17:31:09.4437670-05:00
@Futurepresident2048 Why?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:35:02.8167750-05:00
I think I should make a poll on how the death penalty should be carried out. What method of death would be the best for the death penalty. Probably should also say reframe from cruel and unusual methods because I feel someone is going to put in something crazy.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-04T17:36:01.7769582-05:00
We have a high crime rate with many murders, and these murderers are getting to continue living their lives, costing the taxpayers money, and not giving victims families closure. If I'm murderered id like to know my killer won't get away with his life.
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T17:37:23.5320551-05:00
What if someone was proven innocent after they were executed?
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-04T17:43:54.8635538-05:00
Well thats why the death penalty system should require hard evidence to be convicted, that being DNA, witnesses, etc.
TBR says2015-04-04T17:44:41.1858802-05:00
Futurepresident2048 - Are you SURE you want to make the cost argument?
SwizzardWizard says2015-04-04T17:46:45.1284591-05:00
The evidence could be flawed or there could be corruption with judges, lawyers and police.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-04-04T17:46:47.0629087-05:00
I'll challenge you to a debate then.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:48:03.9923598-05:00
Here is a question to consider. Life in prison is cheaper than the death penalty. The reason the death penalty is more expensive is because it gets more appeals. Does this mean you get less appeals if you don't get the death penalty?
Stefy says2015-04-04T17:48:49.1069814-05:00
Futurepresident: 1) money<human life 2) its more expansive to give someone the death penalty than life in prison
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-04T17:48:59.3560500-05:00
Futurepresident who are you challenging?
TBR says2015-04-04T17:49:16.2194338-05:00
Futurepresident2048 - Debate on a cost basis? How about you look it up before trying.
TBR says2015-04-04T18:00:15.8897365-05:00
No Mathgeekjoe - He has a thing for me right now. Unfortunately its the wide open-ended "Death penitently good"? Question. Http://www.Debate.Org/debates/Should-their-be-a-death-penalty/3/
jyotipatel says2015-04-07T00:18:10.7196460-05:00
Depends.. Sometimes, capital punishment is nonsense.
