<quoted text>There used to be what I would call common sense justice.
If someone breaks into your house..
If someone starts a fight...
If people gang attack someone...
If someone goes after a woman or the elderly or someone handicapped...
Etc, Etc
Some people need to be thrown a beating. According to the law lets say someone pulled those three off of the 13 year old and they stopped attacking him, it would then be illegal to do anything to them since self-defense only covers an amount of force needed to stop an attack. But how is that justice? Someone could literally walk up and sock a woman in the face and then put their hands up and say "I'm done, I'm not resisting" and if someone did something to them they'd go to jail.
That doesn't balance the scales.
Someone can break into a home and smash a bottle over someone's head after robbing them and then go after someone else and it is on the person they are going after to make sure they don't use too much force when potentially fighting for their life
It's so backwards. I'm not advocating shooting someone because they talked snack or bumped into someone. The response can't be absurdly disproportionate. But the old school days of nobody crying over someone who brought something on themselves are over.
I think when people do certain things they open themselves up to certain responses. Those three deserve a trip behind the woodshed. Bet they wouldn't do it again
this is how you wound-up incarcerated the first time.
I see you have learned nothing.
Your criminal thinking must be a birth defect, were both your parents christian?

Your criminal thinking is going to get you in front of a judge again, and the next time you will have priors, in america that should get you a nice piece of time. When you are incarcerated again remember to not tell them you are a christian, the stats of incarcerated christians make it look bad for the religion, do your christian part, lie.

That's the thing. The so called investigation is over. Around here most of the rage has been directed at the driver saying he should have stepped in. No doubt I'm biased since as of now I drive all day long and almost went this route. My thought is somehow whoever the kid told ratted him out. While I don't think its good to be quiet when punks like this screw off, especially if they involve you I do understand the mindset that says its not worth it. I also see this as yet another reason that those that can are home schooling. Most can't do it though.
In Canada, some years back there was a shooting at an University, 14 young women were executed (for being female in a science field).

There was a lot of expressed anger that none of the young male students stood in front of the gun.

People often do not think clearly when angry.

so now ... correct me here ... you are saying that the lack of prayer in schools is not the cause of the decline, but merely that the decline "began" at the time of the school rule change???
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Yes, sort of. I think the lack of prayer in schools started the decline in the American family lifestyle. Kind of like a snowball effect, or a ripple effect.
You've been waffling.

Whether you have stated as much explicitly or not, you have indicated that in your opinion, the cessation of school prayer led to damage of the American culture. The obvious implication is that you believe that if school prayer were reinstated, that America would be restored to a status of greatness by a god that withholds its affections and protection if it is not honored by children in schools.

I don't expect you to affirm or clearly amend that. You seem to want to leave a vague pro-religion impression without committing yourself to any theory that can be rebutted. I expect your answer to always be some form of "Well, not exactly" and "I didn't say that."

Are you sad about the kid that was almost beat to death? At the time the driver said on a 9-11 call he thought he might be killed? At least one of the boys was on the news and his father gave a moving speech. Sorry, I don't care a bit about race religion or anything. Do the crime do the time. They should have been charged as adults and it won't shock me if in the future they do end up killing someone.
do you think one might get the same cell as Skum?

<quoted text>They may have gotten dealt a bad hand in life and that is unfortunate.
And I think everyone knows our prisons don't rehabilitate. It is solely for punishment. And sometimes that's fine and other times it isn't.
But sometimes the main thing is that it protects future potential victims
I'm not saying these kids are unsalvageable. But there has to be a price to pay for almost killing a 13 year old kid who didn't want drugs being pushed on him.
Personally I'd be fine with like a year in juvie and extensive counseling. Maybe even enter them in the big brother program. They have to be punished but in all for making an effort to save them. Their brains are not even fully developed. They still have potential to be decent adults

just waiting for your second turn

american justice does not rehabilitate; present company not excepted

I think Paul had rocks in his head.
Paul was one of the first to turn the words of the jesus into a profit for himself

humorously almost all of America that claim to be "christian" are actually "Pauline's".

Paul set out to destroy chrisianity, you must credit him with an excellent attempt. there are few "real christians"

What were some of the cheering word He said to them.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; If it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again and receive you unto Myself; that where I am there ye may be also. John 14:1-3
