    That is possibly the most depressing thing I have ever read on these forums, ever.

    I strongly believe that their should be an age minimum on a sentencing someone to executions. It is have been proven through brain scans that the area of the brain that processes consequences goes through it most rapid development during the late teen's early 20's for most people.

    Let them out, they do it again. I'd say in his second child murder, the US Court system is an accomplice.

    Mandatory life sentences for rape, murder, serious violent crimes, child molestation, armed robbery, etc.
    Yes because everyone that has killed a child and been released has done it again. One case does not prove "Let them out, they do it again". All it does is proof the risk of it re-occuring.

    Definitely not inflated. The stats I used were the stats that were around when I was in. I'm glad things are changing now. But the state has a very long way to go.

    I just hate the side talk. "Oh we want to make these guys upstanding citizens. But we won't hire them, rent to them, and generally shun them. Have fun!"

    You ever make a mistake in your life Pasha? Did you learn from it? Learning is a change in itself. Obviously a case like this, I agree with you the guy should be shot immediately, but there is flaws in your statement about people not changing. A reasonable person is expected to learn from a mistake, therefore changing.

    I do know someone who committed an armed robbery, he did change, however, he had no intentions of actually using the gun... I can see an argument for that if nobody was harmed or something. The violent crime thing would also depend on the severity of the victim's injuries. I mean, if a victim has brain damage or something that would effect his or her life for the rest of his or her life, that's pretty close to murder.
    What I mean by "serious violent crimes" would be along the lines of beating someone bad enough that they could have died, that the only reason they are alive is pure luck. Just like with armed robbery or any type of weapons charge. A lot of people get off by pure luck that the person survived, so I guess "attempted murder" or something would fall in those lines.

    I do think people go down the wrong road sometimes. I did when I was 17, however, I never harmed anyone innocent, but I did do some stupid things.

    Glad to hear you changed. I'm betting the real change was when you did the crimes, you were probably a good person all along who just got a case of the stupid. I could be wrong, maybe people who murder or rape can change, but if they can change to become a good person, then they should also understand and accept that they should not be allowed back into society. Their victims will never get that chance to go back to who they were, especially the dead ones.

    I know what you mean about having a kid too man. I used to do criminal defense work and honestly, I never thought once about it. I was proud that I worked on cases and won when the person was guilty as sin. I remember a case of a guy with a DUI 3rd and he showed up for his trial drunk. We won. I saw it as we were smarter. I can't do that stuff anymore now that I have a kid. My conscience just makes me think (what if the victim was my baby)... and I just feel sick and angry thinking about helping someone who will more than likely commit the same crime again.

    My child is why I have this zero tolerance type attitude today. I see the pure innocence in her and the thought of someone harming her just is too much to bare.

    Not all correctional systems are that way.

    In Indiana, there are programs upon programs that grant "good-time" and allow for reduction in term when the offender takes advantage of them. Education and vocational training are readily available. The problem is that the offender himself/herself must take advantage of these programs as well as personal responsibility. It's no different than the outside in that area.

    Re-acclimation is tough. No one wants to hire a felon for reasons stretching from fear to liability. It's just a fact of life. Most felons are relegated (obviously by their own hand due to taking part in an illegal act and being prosecuted) to manual labor and lower skilled positions.

    I think S=E inflated Texas's recidivism numbers and they have been on the decline since 2008 at a steady and impressive pace.

    The problem with capital punishment is our justice systems are flawed. Our justice systems are filled with systemic racism, corruption and now greed.

    You cannot have a system which has proven to be flawed allowed to put a person to death. Numerous innocent people have been convicted for crimes, many for serious crimes. Numerous people have been proven innocent years later (due to advances in technology and DNA) who were convicted of violent crimes, rapes and murders. It is estimated with confidence about 8 innocent people have been put to death through capital punishment in the USA (another 30 something cases are suspicious, but not 100% certain).

    If one person is wrongfully executed by the state that state has failed its people. Yeah, yeah, people will say one person wrongfully executed is the cost of being safe ... but it has been proven time and time again, punishment (even the death penalty) is not a strong deterrent against crime.

    Canada does not have capital punishment; a good example of why we should not have capital punishment was the case of David Milgaard. Milgaard was wrongfully convicted of rape and murder of a young nurse in Sask., numerous witnesses and police testified against him and he was sentenced to life (as we do not have a death sentence). Milgaard was proven innocent after spending over 20 years in jail. DNA proved his innocence. [Tragically Hip’s song 38 Years references this case]


    And I fully agree with your concerns about the justice system and rehabilitation Sak. A prison which does not offer any way of reform or rehabilitation is just creating life long criminals - jail that is a school for criminals. The negative stigma that is still following you around after 12 years is brutal. Can you not get a pardon in Texas?

    How is someone who made a mistake supposed to become a productive member of society after spending a hand full of years in prison with no rehabilitation or reform efforts and then having the negative stigma attached to a criminal record ever supposed to prove themselves and make positive changes?

    Sad thing is our justice system in Canada has traditionally been much more community based and encouraged the ideals of rehabilitation until recently. Our current Conservative government has been mumbling about getting tougher on crime, increasing drug crimes, increasing mandatory sentences. The Texas govt, who has recently been making changes for the more positive contacted our govt and told them it was more expensive and less productive to go more punitive and based on punishment.. Unfortunately, that is not what our Prime Minister wanted to hear and disregarded the advice.

    It is actually 2 years less a day is served in 'Provincial Jail' and a sentence over two years is served in a 'Federal Prision'.



    And for those who call for castration of sex offenders..... Castrated sexual offenders are shown to have a similar recivitism rate as non castrated convicted sexual offenders. So as satisfying as it might be to see the fucker get his balls cut off.. it likely wont change the flaw in his brain. Similar to rape, castration could be used as a punishment but not to lessen the chances of re offending as most rapes are more about the domination and act than the sexual gratification (violent non date rape style rapes).
