    “Cruel and unusual punishment” is forbidden by that Constitution you supposedly fought to uphold, nimrod.

    Yeah, no kidding. I guess he’s convinced the prison system is incapable of incarcerating an innocent person.

    In this country we are supposed to treat even the guilty with a measure of dignity and compassion, more because we are decent human beings than because they “deserve” it. We don’t live up to that wonderful Enlightenment ideal in practice, but at least we agree it’s the ideal and that we don’t live up to it. That is, unless we’re battle-hardened creeps who think people are dispensable.

    Meat is murder and is a hardy contributer to global warming. Go veggie.

    Shred, learn a modicum of social grace, and pick up a dictionary while you’re at it, eh? Even other vegans on this site don’t care to be harangued, to the extent they can even understand what you’re saying.
