71. "I'm very anti-death-penalty" -- except for the people on death row! LOL!
Guess what -- there aren't too many angels on death row.

PROBABLE INNOCENCE CANNOT BE THE STANDARD FOR CLEMENCY! If there was much likelihood of proving that any person facing immanent execution was 100% innocent, the argument would be in favor of releasing him -- not in favor of clemency in the form of life imprisonment without hope of parole. IF YOU EXPECT PROOF OF INNOCENCE AS YOUR STANDARD OF CLEMENCY THEN YOU ARE NOT ANTI-DEATH PENALTY (sorry if I'm the one who has to break that sad news, but please don't kill the messenger-- I CAN prove my innocence).

I am in agreement with you on one point, when you say, "I've been here long enough to see people well into the thousands of posts say things you just wouldn't believe."

Amen to that!
