It doesn't.  I am pro capital punishment. Swift and terrible.  It is the only way we can punish capital crimes where there will be no second offenses. 

In order for a society to work, certain laws must be inviolable. Break them and you are permanently out of that society.

. Maybe but I believe that most people don't see it as constitutional but rather an issue of torture or appropriate.

The only problem is do we have the ability to have a system so infallible that we could bet a human life on it?



... that's not a big problem to me, but I'm clean and clear ... and I can prove almost all of that

Please don't ever try to prove anything in AFR. It is futile. Trust me.

Dylann?  yep  Boston Bomber? yep 

But I know where you are going. I think for the death penalty to come into play, no amount of circumstantial evidence is enough.  Eye witness, confession, video or other irrefutable evidence would be needed.

There's nothing in the Constitution that precludes it.  Today's ruling was that use of a series of drugs for the purposes of capital punishment is "not unconstitutional".

So like several other things that crazy liberal or conservative people get spun up about, true change can only come with a constitutional amendment, not this (re)interpretation bullshit that's gone on since 1992 (the last Amendment, but in terms of importance the last meaningful one was 1971).

Remove eyewitness from that list and we agree. Eyewitnesses are notoriously unreliable.
Our Batman,
Who art in Batcave,
Bruce Wayne be thy name.
Thy Wayne Manor come, thy justice be done,
In Arkham as it is in Blackgate.
And give us this day our daily Nightwing,
And beat down the Joker,
As Robin beats down Two Face,
Who trespasses against us.
And lead us not into Crime Alley,
But deliver us from Joe Chill.
Amen.
