I hope this header gets your attention!!
I was just shocked to hear abt Dimebag Darrell's death..arguably one of the most amazing guitarists to tread this planet..so that set me thinkin abt the killer..and what would've happened had he not been shot dead..
There's this little tale I'd like to share with the rest of you like minded ppl..it goes like this..
There was this felon, well he was being tried for a crime he didn't commit and after hearings and deliberations, the judge decided he wasn't guilty, so in his parchment, he wrote: Hang Him Not, Release him. and broke his nib! but the scribe sitting right under the judge's nose wrote, Hang Him, Not Release him!! And he was duly hanged..jus goes to show small things, like in this case, a comma, matter!!
WHich brings me to the point of this thread..capital punishment. You think it's going to help? personally, I feel not cos the very fact that it's been in practise since time immemorial and still crime rears it's ugly head almost every day in this decade, proves that neither does it provide solace to the victimised and his/her near and dear ones, nor does it daunt criminals or potential ones!! It think the justice system would be better off adopting something like what the swedes do..it's reformation as against retribution!!
