    Can we stop using the abbreviation DP as it can mean something VERY different depending on your level of depravity and mine is wondering how the loss of it could mean more money for the military...

    let me explain something - the death penalty doesn't have to cost a lot of money under one condition:
    the person committing the horrendous crime freely admits they committed the act, and there is overwhelming evidence in abundance, and there is no valid reason for an appeal because their trial followed the letter and spirit of the law to the highest degree. As for "more money for the troops" I believe DP appeals and military spending come from different funding sources. Regardless there are many other ways to save money that can be spent on the troops.

    Anyway here is a basic list of crimes that should have you leaving your trial in a body bag:
    1. CHILD MOLESTATION
    2. CHILD MURDER
    3. SERIAL RAPE
    4. CONNING, BILKING, SCAMMING AND OTHERWISE ROBBING THE ELDERLY OR MENTALLY HANDICAPPED

    However, the burden of proof bar should be set very high in trials like these!
    Depending on my mood, motherfuckers who drive like shit might make my list too! :shakefist:

    Yeah, that's not how justice in a functional society works, buddy.

    Unless you think we ought to to just string up every male celeb that gets accused of rape and molestation :?:

    I said SERIAL RAPE and here is why I see a difference: "he said, she said" in the case of what may have possibly been consensual is pretty tricky. But if you are a hide behind trees and rape women in the park on a regular basis serial rapist and finally get caught? I'd be a hard sell on you not eating a bullet right there in the court room!

    OH SNAP! I forgot one very important, special group of people on my "shoot on sight" list but with an extra special twist: priests and other clergy in a position of authority doing "gods work" :dayton: and sexually preying on kids. :brood:
    They should have their nuts ripped off on live TV and allowed to bleed out while getting stabbed & slashed with broken bottles!
    BTW "in a functioning society?" :lol: Surely you jest!

    True. But for some people, the context is always some particularly loathsome level of depravity...

    I take exception to that! It's only 98% of the time.
