If you look at Countries where they have NO violent crime to speak of. It is because they let their citizens KNOW up front what they will face. You DONT see "murder" in many parts of the world, because the citizens KNOW, when they kill someone, they will VERY quickly be relieved of their head.

This Nation is FAR too soft on crime, which is why our prisons are so full to overflowing. In China for example, directly after the trial, the accused is led into an adjacent room, knelt down, and a bullett is deposited into the back of their skull. The price of the bullett is billed to their families.

I spent a career with Marine Recon, and have ZERO tolerance for crime. I was in front line combat numerous times, defending the rights of freedom enjoyed here in this Nation. I DONT feel sorry for ANYONE doing LWP, or on the rowe. Everyone makes their own choices, and MUST pay the fiddler afterwards. Prisoners here in the Nation, as bad as you say things are, actually have it quite good.

I read some of your blog, concerning the "horrible" conditions you are forced to live in. These conditions are actually MUCH BETTER than myself, and my fellow Recon Marines had to endure, many times.

I also DONT buy the "terrible" childhood stories I here from so many prisoners. My childhood was the WORST I have ever heard of. Yet, I made the decision to get away from it all, the gangs, violence, drugs all around me, and spend 20 years defending America.

I understand there has been a "tiny" percentage exhonerated from the rowe and GP, BUT, that is just how it must be. You CANT allow the majority to get away with murder, for the minorities sake. Until the GUTLESS people in charge of our Judicial system, grow a spine and model our system to mirror China's, or many middle eastern nations, people will continue to committ whatever crime they like, because they know they wont "suffer" like people in other Countries do.

It is your right, the right I fought for, to say what you like here. Remember though, in your position, on the very bottom of the food chain, when you piss off the "sharks", you become "bait". I am sure you understand this, and so I hope you accept your fate, when repercussions come back your way. I learned this the HARD way in the streets, and the Marines.

There was not only John´s reply but another one.
Can that one be seen again too?

One can agree or disagree with death penalty but
what was really astonishing me a bit - do you
seriously want a system like China´s in the US?
I mean, you are obviously proud of having served
the freedom of America and so on - and I do pre-
sume you know that China oppresses political
points of view that aren´t welcome to the go-
vernment and so on?

And to which countries are you referring that
have no violent crimes worth speaking of?
(...if I may ask...spontaneously, I know none.)

Dear Ronnie,
one big fat remark:
You know I´m opposed to the death penalty for my religious beliefs.
But, please, DO leave Hitler aside.
Hitler´s system wasn´t highly orchestrated?
Either I misunderstand the meaning of orche-
strated (which is of course possible as I´m not from an English speaking country) or you missed quite an amount of history lessons.
Hitler´s killing machine isn´t comparable to
anything else, it was an absolute effective
killing horror not "only" for criminals but
for innocent people who just had the bad luck
to be Jews, disabled or in another way be unwanted by him and his terror government.

Surely the American justice system does have
its mistakes and imho death penalty should
indeed be abolished but comparing them with
Hitler is an absolute no-go - for the sake of
the system representatives as well as for the
sake of the Nazi victims.

@Gewitterfee, i'm not sure which comment you're referring to. Perhaps this one?

I was referring to the one by kimberlita.
She (or he?) had written one to this blog entry too, not only to the Daily Journal.
