The death penalty: 4 % is innocent

When the FBI was confronted with the fact that over decades their 'specialists' on forensics had messed with samples of found hairs on crime scenes and probably a few dozen innocent people have been found guilty and have been excecuted as 'proven' murderers, a spokesman lifted his shoulders and mumbled: 'Sorry.' That was is. No one has been held accountable and no one has been punished for this grave error. Well, not yet, anyway.

Rick Perry has no problems with the fact that 4 percent of all the people on deathrow turn out to be innocent. But then they are already excecuted. He did however take it to court when he found out that four people who voted in het state commited fraud when voting. That percentage is close to zero.

With the death penalty still in action, America is in the same list as Iraq, Iran, Saoudi Arabia and China. Who would want to be on that list? And how come crime rates in the USA are not significantrly lower than in - for example - Finland? That's an easy one: it's because having the death penalty does not help bring down the crime rates!

'Yeah, but death penalty brings down murder rates!'
Well, no, it does not.

Just look at the figures: there are even less murders in states that don't have the death penalty!

Society today

Are you happy with your life?
Are you happy with how your country is run?
Are you happy with how we treat our planet?

It seems like we live in a world the nazi's would have loved!
Kids are told to f*ck off by 'law enforcers', selling their homemade lemonade without a licence because 'Ordnung muss sein und Befehl ist Befehl!'

Drones kill innocents

Most Americans think it's okay to use drones to kill people. Because they think their government uses drones to kill terrorists. However, a government official stated that the very first official drone attack killed three men. Two of them were innocent bystanders and one 'looked like Bin Laden because he had the same height. Approximately.' In other attacks hundreds of people were killed. Mostly innocent civilians 'but they could have been terrorists!' Asked why hardly ever the subject's identification was confirmed before launching a drone attack, one government official stated: 'Although we don't know who the targets are, we are usually confinced the strike is justified.'
