Wait a minute, you are referring to all the people that are imprisoned when the topic is about the death penalty? I don't believe you stated that earlier either, so what's your point in generalizing when not all the people are on death row?

That's right, you were commenting on my name so why do I have to explain it? Aren't you supposed to reply on my comments?

I thought I heard someone say death row convicts are people or was that just an echo coming from a monicker with a message?

So what's the point of asking, the answer is obvious? Duhhhh!!
"Victims" -- don't bother trying to explain anything to her. She will just continue to say she did not say what she said. <G>

Victims are People Too: This is the name I use on all the sites and not just on the Death Penalty. I do not change it when I go to other sites, so no, I am not referring only to death row.

I was just confused at why you would come back to me with victims are people too when I had never stated that they were not. Just trying to find out if you felt I had said that as I had not.

So since I have apparently made that clear maybe we can change this back from a gossip site and back to the issue.

The "Innocence Project" has proven many times that innocent people do get convicted and imprisoned. And it's also been proven that rich men who can afford the slickest lawyers get off much easier, sometimes scot-free.(OJ come to mind?)

With that said, I am for the Death Penalty only for the most heinous crimes and only if there's absolute, 100% positive proof. I believe that Child-Murder should always carry the death penalty. There just isn't any reason under the sun for an innocent kid to be murdered.

The Brandy Duvall case in Colorado comes to mind. 14 years old. Tortured for hours in ways that make this grown man cry, murdered and thrown out on the side of the road. Not one of them drug-crazy gang members got the death penalty. They were young men, so we'll be feeding them, housing them, providing them with medical and dental care for a long, long time. The thought of that makes me so dam mad I could gladly wring their necks myself.
