    I feel you are misinterpretting me. These people are ill simply for the fact that they are not behaving correctly. It's not about people using it as an excuse, it's about the need to rehabilitate and (for lack of a better word) "normalise" them.

    Also bearing in mind that choice is merely a perception.

    And last thing: I'm not saying they shouldn't be judged. On the contrary, that time to be rehabilitated should be open to however much time is needed to do so, rather than an arbitary set time whereby they are released whether they changed 5 seconds after coming into prison or haven't changed at all.

    Yes you can, you can prove anything. DNA is everywhere, hair, sperm, skin folics and prints...granted its not everything you see on the tv shows but its damn near close. My brother goes to school for forensic and the crap he shows me blows my mind on how people get caught.
    No one can ever tell 100% because everything is based on something else: and all those things are fallible. For example, eye witness testimony works on the basis that, a, the eye witness got a good enough look at the person that they could distinguish them from literally everybody else b, that their memory is 100% correct and most of all c, that they are telling the truth, even under oath.

    Likewise, with CCTV, the image must be unmistakable from anyone else (which it is often not). DNA evidence can say who is most likely to be the killer/rapist whatever, but it can never be 100%.

    Trust me, I'm doing postmodernism this semester, things like memory and absolute undeniable truths never exist.

    I think we need an entire debates forum, this thread can derail quite a bit...

    I'm against any form of the death penalty, I think that Squall's got to the points I was going to make before me, so, hats off to him.
    I love you, Adam.

    What do you mean by that? It's not that anyone is corrupted. People just think differently to each other. It's something you've got to learn to cope with.

    P.S. @Frogger: I totally agree about the need for a debate section.

    So by "corrupted" you mean, "doesn't think like you"? Remember, this is a debate thread.



    I never add friend codes.

    Just kill him. Life should equal life.
    I do not know how things work in Britain, but it is a fact that in the US getting someone to the point of the death penalty is more expensive than life in prison [via multiple trails, etc.].

    Pickles.

    Should we have a debate forum-Yes, i like debating, its like arguing with rules and im good at arguing. It may help solve some issues, but the only thing that could be bad is that some people (Dorkfish) might take the arguments to far.

    Steriods. The good, the bad, the bacne-Tried em once, got off em as soon as i could. Made me feel REALLY REALLY PICKLEY. Didn't like it.

    Professional Wrestling- John Cena ftw?
