Wow, you were led to an enlightened conclusion - questioning the death penalty and the accuracy of the judicial process - by your partisanship. Whatever it takes! If you have serious doubts about the death penalty and the guilt of persons who have been convicted as a result of faulty information and processes, read the book "Actual Innocence" by Barry scheck. He discusses the need for accurate, modern DNA testing, both to find out who is wrongly imprisoned, and to find out who actually committed the crimes, and to abe able to arrest them, prosecute them with accurate information and proper processes, and prevent them from raping or killing again. He has lots of good suggestions t the back of the book. The fact that charges against stevens were dropped does not mean that he is proven innocent - only that the case against him was so coantaminated by prosecutorial and probably also investigative errors (even FBI, maybe?) that the case could not be fairly presented. and Holder wanted to send a message to the Justice Department that this sort of incompetent (and worse, maybe) work would not be tolerated in the future. It was the Bush Administration that ruined the Justice Department, and now it has to be restored to competence, and honor. These were either Bush appointees, or those who were allowed to stay in the Department, and not harassed and driven out by the Bushies, who presented the contaminated case against Stevens. He deserved to lose the election. He is guilty enough for that. But to go to jail at his age - not as if he is Madoff! He just let people do him favors, and didn't press payment on them. A human enough flaw. Not forgiveable to the extent of trusting him in power. But not evil enough to send a man his age to jail, when he will not be a danger to anyone. As for his son Ben, and others in alaska who were corrupt, this should not get them off - but it should force investigators and prosecutors to behave correctly.

I wrote you some comments..did not go thru...BUT!! try again!!

long time ago a movie..The Ox bow incdent..1943,was an important message then as this subject is to day suggest you see it!...yes Barry Scheck..great book...trial by jury/ well thats the way it is..O.J. showed that a jury verdict stands....If not convicted your innocent..no matter what we all think,invent,or wish...like presidential pardons..the president deceids..weather we like it or not...

Now if you want to politize this important subject ? go ahead..it shows your not serous,and stale,! all adminsreations from the begining appoint people who reflect the new Presidents policy!.As surly as this new President will.and will be done again with another new president!.Always some agree,and some don't..its the way it is!Democracy!

new brooms sweep clean!...always will!!!

If abolishing the death penalty save's innocent lifes..then it should be done. Not a political thing!....thanx for your comment1

You must of had your home remodeled from the local cougher there stupid F@k.......... maybe next time you pull your head from your axx you can see past any Pearl Farm Mentality (and by the way, I've never been there, wouldn't waste my time or effort).

As for ol' Douglas boy, this country was truly a slime bucket when he arrived you just went to the websites for bleeding heart foreigners who will fall for anything.

Just stay in your state (by the way I share a home in Pennsylvania, seeing as I'm an American) but go ahead stay in a country of 15,000 rules and regulations a day, work work work and, oh yeah, don't forget to pay those low low low taxes you have up there in New York state.

Next time you do some foreign prospecting, try Russia, I'm sure Stevens can see it from his front porch???
