Because freedom can't protect itself
THERE NO FAIR TRIALS.AND YOU CANN'T DEFEND YOUR SELF.POOR PEOPLE HAVE NO MONEY .NO MONEY COURT APPOINTED LAWYER.YOU LOSE
I absolutely believe that the death penalty should be ILLEGAL regardless of the charge. Mary's right, there in no way of knowing if there was a fair hearing, and no way of knowing if a person is definitely guilty unless witnessed and we still have to wander if that witness is honest. I think that the death penalty itself is Murder. Murder is “the intentional, premeditated killing of another person with malice.”
The death penalty is murder and murder is not justice. It is revenge.
I think That this article is right:
by talking about the way people who have criminal cases are not allowed the same opprtunities then rich people.I think this way because a rich person could pay allot of money and they would be free.Also because if you get an attorney from the city they might not really care and they will not help you get a shorter sentence,they would only want to get information out of you.
I agree with the people,accused criminals should have the right 2 have a lawyer that is good and care very much about the case and the person being accused unless they have alot of evidence on that person!Now that President Obama is in office i hope that has a BIG change,that they shouldnt have any more death penatly.Ok if it doesnt happen that means we are putting killers in jail for nothing then,because the judge is doing the same thing to the people being accused.That also means that the judge that sentence that criminal to the death penatly "HAS THE RIGHT TO KILL JUST BECAUSE HE OR SHE HAS A DEGREE" if that aint retarded i dont know what is!!
In my opinion i think that there will never actually be fair trials because anyway u lokk at it the jury always wins.For examle the people that are convicted and they dont have money yea they receive an attorney by the court but it not always guaranteed that the attorney is a good one.
I was arrested Sept 18th 2009 by WV State Police. Who became irate when questioning me as I answered "That is a question I can not answer any questions without an attorney present. He refused to let me obtain an attorney. So did the Magistrat in greenbrier county WV. I was incarcerated at Southern Regional Jail at Beckley WV. Medication that I needed was with helded after it was delivilered to the Jail. I am in bad need of an excellent Attorney in Civil Liberties. fifth sixth amendments
"The death penalty is the ultimate infringement on a person's civil liberties."
So is murder.
But of course and as usual nobody even gives the one minute it would take to say so.
I think it's absurd to point out one and wholly neglect mentioning the other.
If you think it's NOT an infringement then tell me how murdering someone DOESN'T infringe on every right the person had?
Living on and on while that person stays dead on and on seems wrong too, especially since the thing that's going to conTINUE living on and on doesn't give a rat's ass about anybody and will even kill more people as soon as the chance arises.
Like the one who died in Oklahoma who said "I'm an assassin" when told about trying to kill other prisoners in the prison.
He doesn't even care that people give a damn about him. He'd kill you as soon as he got the chance because he's "an assassin," it's "what [he] does."
I know someone who was murdered. I care about him, I sure as shinola don't care about the people who killed him. Who didn't really get the death penalty. They did what too many people who commit mass murder do and killed themselves almost immediately afterward. Some of them did it before everyone had died in the incident. With the exception of Osama bin Laden, who stayed alive and planned more attacks the whole time he lived.
Which shows what HE thought of people's rights.
