    I had to look it up. Jodi Arias, I take it?
    Looks like I side with Benson.

    @ScottPM: you said"Why do liberals care more about the murderer than the victim?! Ah, because liberals really don’t care about people."

    How absurd of you. It is the Republicans who hypocritically scream “right to life” and then turn around and vote for the death penalty. It is Republicans who refuse gays the right to marry but pretend that THEIR family values, which include divorce, cheating, and hypocrisy while they do it (check out Newt Gingrich for example or the Bakkers) are worth saving in the first place, all the while insisting that everyone do as tehy say instead of do as they do. Get real…

    @MrSmee

    ScottPM made his point about the Arias case so well, that you had to change the subject in order to try to rebut it. You actually covered four different subjects and tried to tie them together. While I can see what you’re trying to do, you’ve failed to address the issue at all.

    Scott: please note Ima’s “conservative” love and understanding, free of all hate or resentment toward “liberal thought”. Yes, it is indeed the “liberals” who are hateful, and spout hate.

    There are very few crimes that warrant the death penalty.
    To avoid that sentence, don’t commit those crimes.

    The guy on the right is going to take care of the woman on the left.

    In all of the following, read “government” to include “after a fair trial using due process of law”.
     
    If a private citizen keeps you locked in his basement, it’s kidnapping.
    If the government does the same, it’s incarceration.
     
    If a private citizen takes your money, it’s theft.
    If the government does it, it’s a fine.
     
    If a private citizen flogs you, it’s assault.
    If the government does it, it’s corporal punishment.
     
    If a private citizen takes your life, it’s murder.
    If the government does it, it’s … oh, heck, according to Steve Benson, that’s murder, too.
     
    Now, look, I’m no fan of the death penalty. It’s way too expensive, it teaches that violence IS a good response to your problems, it’s disproportionately used against people of color and the mentally ill, and it can’t be reversed or rectified in case of error. But spare me this bleeding-heart BS about how it’s no different than murder.
