    Maryland Abolishes Death Penalty

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bill abolishing Maryland's death penalty was signed by Governor Martin O'Malley on Thursday, making the U.S. state the 18th to abolish state-sanctioned executions, a spokeswoman said.

    An enlightened decision.

    There seem to be fewer appeals with "lifers."

    Benefit: Maryland will not be executing the innocent

    This is disappointing.

    The death penalty should still be an option for perpetrators of the most heinous crimes, like premeditated mass murders. With DNA and modern technology, it's almost impossible to have a case of the wrong person being convicted, and then have all of their appeals fail.

    Even in such a liberal, "deep blue" state like California, voters refused to abolish the death penalty when it was put to popular vote this year.

    Great news!

    Unfortunately the USA is in partnership with India, China, the Arabic countries and African countries allowing state sanctioned murder. All westernized countries abolished this barbaric practice but...as usual...l we're the sore thumb.

    Because he may very well be innocent - railroaded through a dysfunctional public defender and justice system.

    Plus, it's probably cheaper to house them than to pay for 10 years of appeals.

    I think it would be better to pay even more than to take anyone's life in my name...and when the state kills someone they are talking their lives in our names. I know a lot of people have a disconnect where they feel they aren't responsible for killing someone else but if they do it in your name...you are responsible on at least some level. That is not acceptable to me.

    The second to the last man they killed here...Stanley Williams...what a fucking waste. He was contributing so much to the kids who were in gangs...helping them to get out. In order to reach these guys they need someone who speaks their language...who they can relate to and respect. He was a special man who had a great gift. Killing him solved NOTHING. An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.

    In that same thread is a story of a man in Arizona who after 45 years in prison for something he was innocent. To be released they forced him to sign a no-contest plea. He can say he is innocent but he cannot sue anyone for the 45 years of his life that he missed. It was my post #11.

    This is another story from the Innocence project in Arizona. Apparently they have the same type of prosecutors in their State. This guy was forced to sign the statement. Read below.

    http://www.innocenceproject.org/Cont...Overturned.php

    Louis Taylor, wrongfully convicted of setting a 1970 Arizona fire that claimed the lives of 29 people, was finally released this week after 42 years in prison on a no-contest plea. The Pioneer International Hotel fire is the worst in Arizona’s history, though arson experts now believe that it wasn’t intentionally set.

    --snip--

    Despite the new scientific evidence challenging the finding of arson, prosecutorial misconduct, and other evidence of Taylor’s innocence, he has not been exonerated. Instead, he was forced to accept a no-contest plea in order to be released. The plea allows him to continue maintaining his innocence but the plea will almost certainly bar him from seeking civil remedies. Arizona is one of 23 states that does not provide exoneree compensation.

    I was pro-choice once but then I was called out on it because I was against the death penalty. I believe it was either Saucy or Swerve who did the calling out and convinced me to be pro-life in both instances.

    Congratulations to Maryland.

    The most heinous of crimes that man can do, is take life away. When governments set death as the penalty, they become hypocrites. We set a benchmark for humanity when we say that taking life is wrong, and then prove that by refusing to execute our criminals.

    Damn! I wish you hadn't said that. Now I'm confused.
    I do believe that women need the right to own their own bodies. What I mean by pro-choice is that men have nothing to do about what a woman wants to do with their bodies.
    No, I'm pro choice, I think if a woman wants an abortion that is their choice and men have nothing to say about it. Except for the father of the baby. The husband and wife makes the choice. Sorry Saucy or Swerve.

    Please. The death penalty is based on race. African Americans are more likely to receive the death penalty than any other race, disproportionately, might I add. And in cases where the victim is White, the defendant is more likely to receive the death penalty.

    Sorry, I don't mean to make this about race, but that is simply not disputable. It should not be legal with such significant racial biases.

    Forcing a woman to give birth to her rapist's child by going against the Constitution, then ignoring that child when it needs care isn't pro life.

    State sanctioned revenge killing isn't pro life.

    Advocating State sanctioned murder because of cost isn't pro life either.

    1. You assume DNA analysis is used in all capital cases. Not so.

    2. You assume "modern technology" is employed in all capital cases. Not so.

    3. You assume the DNA lab doesn't cook the results. As we have seen in many state forensic labs, the results are cooked - if not outright falsified - in favor of the prosecution.

    4. You assume the prosecution is wholly ethical. Frequently not so. (See White Eagle's post I referenced.

    5. You assume defense counsel is competent. Frequently not so.

    6. In the case of a court appointed defense you assume the Court will afford the defense the resources (money) it may need. And to which it is entitled. Frequently not so.

    7. In the case of a non-indigent defendant you assume the money is available to mount a vigorous defense. All too often not so.

    Stop watching so much television: the system doesn't work that way.

    Disabled people cost taxpayers a lot of money. Gun nuts like to kill. Hire the gun nuts to shoot them.

    Think of all the money it would save taxpayers.. the disability payments, hospital costs, welfare. Get rid of those old, sick and crippled people. A right wing conservative's dream.

    Getting rid of those parasites would save a lot of money.....

    And it would create jobs..... !

    A solution for all sorts of things: workmens' comp; SSI; Medicaid; Medicare hospice expenses; Medicare for the terminally ill ( the last 5 weeks of life take 40% of Medicare expenditures). I could go on.

    Think of all the money the American taxpayer would save!

    Get rid of the unemployed too. After all, they're too lazy to go and get themselves a job.

    That way The Job Creators would get themselves a much-deserved tax break.

    No offense but that's pretty much shoddy reasoning. Pro-Choice is just that. Right wingers like to overlook it in their fundamentalist zeal. But Pro-Choice is pretty much saying that neither you nor I have any business in that kind of decision. It is NOT an endorsement of abortion.

    Re: Maryland Abolishes Death Penalty

    TX-Beau is right. Being pro choice doesn't mean you like or advocate abortion, it just means you leave the choice to the woman, her doctor and her God.

    Government needs to stay out of people's private lives and shouldn't be sticking their nose into personal, private decisions like choice. They also need to stay out of people's bedrooms.

    Re: Maryland Abolishes Death Penalty

    something occurred to me about abortion . Before it was legal and medicalized there was some constant rate of failures - women who attempted their own abortions and failed , died of peritonitis or something . Regular failures . Remember some guy documentary 1920s his mother like 40 after having 6 kids bled to death for her last .

    moreover violent crimes and DNA as proof . Wikipedia lists the US as one of the countries with the death penalty for drug trafficking . Up there with Singapore and Turkey .

    your state is actually late. it has executed 5 people within 19 years before the death penalty was repealed.

    it only applies to future cases as well. the 5 guys that's on your state's death row currently are assed out and it's more likely that they will be executed in the near future.

    What if you go by a burning house and there is hose and water available where you can easily put the fire out ... but you choose to walk away.

    You might feel like you have a point, but other people are kinda just laughing.

    Next time try for something in the ballpark that a little less... contrived.

    I admit that was amusing, but not in a laugh WITH you kind of way.

    Is that how you see yourself for refusing to see how bad the Republican Congress is for the country?

    The death penalty for the most heinous of crimes is appropriate

    It is just

    Not having it for fear of making a "mistake" is absurd

    Our system is a good one

    Perhaps additional proof beyond a reasonable doubt could be added but

    This is progressive over think

    I did say at one point recently that I was pro life. That is because either Sausy or Swerve called me on being against death penalty and pro choice on abortion. But as I said it is not a mans place to tell a woman what she can do, but as far as abortion only the woman and the father have a say.
    This is very confusing. There are so many different ways to look at it. I think this is where I stand.

    Sorry, I don't mean to make this about race, but that is simply not disputable. It should not be legal with such significant racial biases.
    You are right about this. It is a race issue, not really racist. The black man, and woman, are more likely to be found guilty, even if the prosecutor manufactures evidence beforehand. That is where the Innocence project comes in to correct it.
    When the jury is formed, if the prosecutor is a racist then a all white jury will probably be picked.

    I do believe that women need the right to own their own bodies. What I mean by pro-choice is that men have nothing to do about what a woman wants to do with their bodies.
    No, I'm pro choice, I think if a woman wants an abortion that is their choice and men have nothing to say about it. Except for the father of the baby. The husband and wife makes the choice. Sorry Saucy or Swerve.

    I just caught on to what your comment was. Yes, My head was spinning too. Wait til you see the other post I made to Rolyo85. It's just about as confusing. I really can't express my feelings on pro life and pro choice.

    The death penalty should still be an option for perpetrators of the most heinous crimes, like premeditated mass murders. With DNA and modern technology, it's almost impossible to have a case of the wrong person being convicted, and then have all of their appeals fail.

    Even in such a liberal, "deep blue" state like California, voters refused to abolish the death penalty when it was put to popular vote this year.
    It is not impossible. It has happened all too often in the US.

    Good for Maryland.

    And no surprise where our resident right wingers would stand on the issue.

    I have been challenged on being pro choice and anti death penalty before and I considered it as well....and I realized that to have cognitive dissonance on the matter you have to allow the other side to define life for you which is what had happened. I choose to define life as beginning at birth.

    It also helps to remember that pro choice is not necessarily synonymous with pro abortion. They are two different things.
