Who speaks for the unborn child hmmm
Very weak argument to equate abortion with the death penalty, because if you do that then you have to condemn the women and their doctors that terminate those unborn
He is a citizen. As such these are guaranteed rights. You cant draw a line on which rights citizens are given based on your feelings. That is a slippery slope that we can't go down
Huntinman, killing the enemy before they kill you would be great, but it is the same philosophy of the terrorists we are killing. We knew they were enemies, and the FBI was watching them, and it wouldn't surprise me if they even aided this attack with plans to foil the plot. That is all speculation, but we know that the FBI sets up terror plots so they can catch people.
And I used to think like you Bon, and have begun to swing more anti death penalty. If I say human life is sacred in one case, I have a hard time saying it isn't in another. Let's just say i think it is never good to kill another human in any case. But in some cases, it may be less bad. No one should be proud to take another persons life. But we glorify our snipers and drones just like the jihadists glorify their bombers. This is wrong.
I don't think it is a weak argument to equate death penalty and abortion. But this is a debate that I know I can't change minds on.
My guess is that they want to be sure he is aware of his rights when read to him, which he may not have been able to do when apprehended. Either way, it won't be good for him. More than likely protective custody(solitary) the entire time in jail. And if not, well there's probably some patriots in prison.
I dont know of any ex military people INCLUDING my father who was happy that they had to take human lives in war...my father was a devout Christian, but he swore an oath when they pinned the bars on his lapel..He was however proud to have served the country that he loved while defending the country of his birth..
I also take no glee in executing someone like McVeigh, but he and Nichols took countless lives in OKC...I am just sorry that Nichols was able to plead out a life sentence....and FTR I think that Charles Manson and his entire cult should have all been fried decades ago, same with Sirhan,Hinckley
I will not be ashamed of my country for bringing justice to those who do harm to us....I will celebrate the safe return of our troops from harms way
You and I just see things in a different way..
