It is obvious that you have never been involved in bloodshed or you would think otherwise.
My lips are not bald. And I have walked with the condemned on death row. Is that enough bloodshed for you?

BTW, how do you "educate train" your brain?

Nothing. And the separation between death penalty advocates and the bloodthirsty cartels in Mexico is nil.

i believe in the death penalty. I think it should be enforced in cases that involve child malesting and murder.

It's clear that we don't want YOU in charge! You would undoubtedly dispense the death penalty among liberals and save your conservative friends as cronies. What is wrong with valuing ALL human life? Certainly there are people who don't deserve to live, but in a civilized, Democratic (and I know you must hate that word) nation - a jury of one's peers gets to decide guilt and punishment.
If you want to live in a country where the death penalty is used frequently and where they don't value all human life, move to the middle east!
So you value the lives of scum like Stalin, Hitler, Chairman Meow,
and all the other tyrants that ruled throughout history. And this is NOT a "Democratic" nation, nor is there a Democratic party.
We are a Constitutional Republic and bleeding heart liberals like you have usurped the Democrat party and turned it into a far left organization. How can a jury sentence someone to the death they so richly deserve when idiots like you don't offer a death sentence. YOU house these dirtbag criminals at YOUR expense in YOUR house if you love them so much.

The guilt of Jones is solid without the hair, just using the single link from the Innocence Project.

He was the only criminal who matched the eyewitness description, along with other evidence.

http://www.innocenceproject.org/docs/jones/Jo...

In addition, we have this:

In addition to that murder, Jones had these other known offenses:

1976-1984 served time in Kansas prison for robbery, murder and assault.

1959 robbery, assault, burglary, theft Texas prison

released early.

1963 theft Texas prison

released early

1989 Jones is a suspect in a 1989 bank robbery, committed days before the murder that put him on death row.

Jones, a career criminal. There is no way to know how many additional crimes he committed

your first paragraph referes to the "C" Street boys yes all those you named are the new chosen the rich and powerfull only club and the people you named they respect and see no guilt in how they ruled.

the second paragraph is right on the nose,1 MILLION per day on brain dead prisioners. who should have been relesed, we still pay for. 80,000 per disabled a DAY,46,000 for a healthy prisioner per day!!! Yes man can commit crimes heinious enough to deserve death but nobodys state agrees!?? I would prefere to use those taxs for American jobs here at home, or infrustructure, not slime.Gas-em, Cook-em, Hang-em ,shoot-em! just stop using my taxs to pay for them, for life.

Lack of Tats, tagging,'signs', and nicknames. The ability to pull up their pants, IQ, intentions, and knowing how to hold a gun properly.
