Let me make sure I have this right.

Dude beats a guy to death with a baseball bat.

Says his boss paid him to kill the guy.

Dude gets a life sentence.

Boss gets the death penalty.

That some 'Murrica right there. What a country.

Similar situation with the woman who was executed in GA last night. She talked her boyfriend into killing her husband.

Boyfriend testifies against her, she gets death penalty and he gets life.

Fucked up beyond belief.
Virtually everything GOP critics have told us would follow from the policies put in place has not come to pass. You would think that this would occasion a few mea culpas, some rethinking, an admission of poor prognostication. But, alas, it continues.

Sounds like a couple of folks shouldn't have hired/paid/asked someone to kill a person they wanted dead. Or at least not done it in OK or GA

Of course they shouldn't have. Lots of people do things they shouldn't do. Killing them serves no real purpose.

I know it doesn't. I just felt like using my old, "sounds like someone shouldn't have...." line. You know, for old times sake.

Life without parole is probably a more miserable experience than death by lethal injection. It would be to me anyway. I'd do away with the death penalty.

You should read The Autobiography of an Execution by David Dow. Makes a skeptic of even a far righty like me.

Google the "Bali Nine Duo" or "Lindsay Sandiford" if you want to see f***ed up capital punishment in another country.
