Quote from dnp2004
i think these people should be compensated at least $1,000,000 per year of false incarceration. the prosecutor should be automatically disbarred. in the case of a false execution, the executioner should be charged with at least 2nd degree murder.
good topic i am surprised it has not been moved though.
- $1,000,000 per false incarceration: we all pay
-the prosecutor should be automatically disbarred.
only disbarred? sometimes the prosecutor is elected or he/she is hired by elected officials and those elected officials were elected by the citizens; so the citizens are accomplice. in a lot of states murder charges apply to the accomplice just as if he/she were the one who committed the murder. so lock everyone up?
- in the case of a false execution, the executioner should be charged with at least 2nd degree murder.
the executioner is usually selected by a state employee who was placed in that position by another state employee (usually the warden) who was selected by another state employee (commissioner) who was put in place by an elected official (usually the governor). so again an elected official placed in that position by the citizens so the citizens are accomplices. lock everyone up?
if prosecutory misdeeds can be proven or even defensive misdeeds can be proven than:
- $1,000,000 from the individual not the state.
- punishment equal to what they were seeking.
again: i find the innocence project most intriguing i wonder what their ratio is…
i also wonder what the percentage of cases they have had overturned are:
- related to police / prosecution misdeeds
- related to police / prosecution mistakes
- related to defense misdeeds
- related to defense mistakes
- jury mistakes
- judge mistakes
also what if the innocence project gets it wrong and gets someone released that was guilty???
do they get to pay the $1,000,000 to the victims family?
...an executioner who kills a person who is later discovered to be innocent
. what about the judge he directed for the sentence to be given out? if one wants to look at it another way: what about the judge, jury, defense , prosecution that by some means allows the guilty to go free and life is lost. are all the parties involved responsible?
- pay $1,000,000 to the victims family
- throw all the parties involved into jail?
death vs life in prison???
kill a convicted person and risk killing an innocent?
sentence a convicted person to life and pay room/board, medical fees, future legal expenses, lawsuits, risk to employees, population because the can/do escape. also expose that convicted person to murder (innocent or not) because life behind bars is life behind bars.
locking up a person is out of sight out of mind for a lot of people but all across the country millions is not billions are going down the drain and well as people lives.
so: death sentences are not the solution, buildings with razor wire are not the solution but what is?
when a crime is committed; do we blame the moms and the dads? do we blame the society (each other)? do we blame the individual?
