On a more somber subject, the charleston shooter was sentenced to death today. I'm curious to see how many people agree with the death sentence for this case. Thoughts?

 

“I would like to make it crystal clear that I do not regret what I did. I am not sorry. I have not shed a tear for the innocent people I killed. I do feel sorry for the innocent white children forced to live in this sick country and I do feel sorry for the innocent white people that are killed daily at the hands of the lower races. I have shed a tear of self pity for myself. I feel pity that I had to do what I did in the first place. I feel pity that I had to give up my life because of a situation that should have never existed.”

 

I'm not a fan of the death penalty, but I'm not going to argue against it after reading that

Yeah. I'm 100% against the death penalty, and that goes for this guy as well. But if anyone deserves it, it's got to be him.

What a nightmare it must be to be wrongfully accused of something that would send you to death row in the United States. Canada doesnt have a death penalty. I'm pretty sure there is a small percentage of people convicted of crimes that they did not commit. For those reasons I am against the death penalty.

 

But, yea, some people deserve to die.

This isn't remotely true - 4% of executed inmates have been exonerated - and that says nothing about those who were innocent but have not been exonerated:

It's not even the possibility of them being innocent that bothers me. It's just kinda dumb to kill people in general.

How long is an appropriate amount of time before you decide you don't like anything about a job and start looking for a new one? A year? 6 months? Because I'm super ready to move on...

You gotta look out for yourself, so leave if you think you need to, but usually you want to be there for a year so that it's easier to get your next job

I don't know, personally I'm for the death penalty but only from an economic standpoint and if it can be carried out efficiently. For example, with a person like the Charleston shooter who is clearly guilty and even admits it himself why shouldn't he receive the death sentence? The alternative option is that we, speaking generally for the tax paying people, bear the burden of supporting this man through his life and paying for all of his meals, medical visits, clothing, etc... He honestly has no chance at parole and would have received a sentence which would keep him in jail for the remainder of his living days anyway, so why prolong the cost? 

 

That being said I feel like it should almost be more of a clause that can be provoked rather than a sentence to seek. Try the person for whatever crime they have committed, once it becomes clear beyond any shred of doubt - in this instance the accused's own admittance of guilt, especially with no remorse - that he was aware of his actions and that he will spend the remainder of his days in some form of incarceration, then the crown or another party could start a process to have him sentenced to death. I don't want innocent people, or people who truly regret their crime and may have another chance at life to die but even a jail sentence does nothing to a man who considers his actions right and won't take the time in jail to reflect on his crime or reform himself.

Didja know? Executing someone is a lot more expensive than life in prison. It costs more than letting the accused live in prison for the remainder of his days.

That's where the effciency comes in. Currently it costs more due to the multiple, multiple trials and appeals to try and ensure the person isn't innocent of the crime possibly taking years and a boat load of extra money. My theoretical system which really only works in a perfect world has the original trial to establish guilt/sentencing and only one more after a multiple life sentence is handed down to decide execution or not. Additionally, after the second trial execution would be within a timely manner, no more than a month and preferably days to 2 weeks.

We're really far off from a "one trial proves innocence or guilt" system. I'm not entirely convinced that's going to be possible ever, tbh.

If you're not having fun, if you don't look forward to going in, start looking. If there's nothing to redeem it, you should already be gone.

That's why it's "my perfect world" idea, I realise that it I'd nearly impossible. However, in the case of somebody like the Charleston Shooter I think its pretty obvious where the guilt or innocence lies based on his own actions and statements.

Today, I got my first shave in over a year.

Feels so weird.

 

Left my moustache on, so that it would be not THAT sharp, but I had a full beard for over a year...

 

 

Also, I don't support death penalty.

 

And, got me tickets for a vacation in Georgia!!!!!!@@@@ (The country, not the state. Don't know anything that I'd like in that state)

I've seen people quit on day one after seeing what the job is really like. If you have other references and you don't burn your bridges just leave as soon as you can financially do so if you really hate your job
