Response to Major Nikon (Reply #24)

27. And that is really sad.

If you believe in the sanctity of life that does not give you the right to then cherry pick who deserves to live and who deserves to die. This is the 21st Century and the US is still locked in the barbaric practices of the past. The US attitude on the whole subject of criminal justice is barbaric. It becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. There are other countries (Norway for ex.) who have a totally different approach to criminal justice and it is a whole different world. Norway doesn't even have life sentences. But they also have different perspectives own society, how people relate to one another, and don't focus on destructive attitudes. One might say that Americans have managed to create our own hell on earth. i.e. guns rights are valued more then child safety/life, the wealthy profit at the expense of the masses, erosion of civil liberties/rights, and so on.
