Hi Lady, u wrote:
Why is it that 2 people can commit the same crime but one is sentenced to death and the other to life with or without parole ? Why is it that in two different parts of the state and or country ,can one inmate get death, but another inmate for the same crime gets life with or without parole ?
Yes, thats a good question. If we had DP in Germany i would ask the same - specialy since i work in Hessen and life in Rheinland-Pfalz. (Beside Hessen was the Last 'Bundesland' with DP in the western part of Germany in their constituion)
So if someone kills in Hessen he will be beheaded and in Rheinland-Pfalz he will be imprisoned. Really, that sounds not fair.
Ironical, the last execution in Germany was 1981. A man has been killed/murdered/executed as a spy (in East Germany).
If he had made it to the western part he would have recieved money for informations and been treated like a hero - perhaps.
He was executed according to the laws of a (more or less) souvereign country/nation. My problem with 'their' law is/was, that the government never was 'democratic' installed and they abused the DP as a political weapon.
Thats one cause why there is the 40% Anti in me.
I feel if we are going to have the death sentence then to be fair ,either everyone needs to get it or no one needs to get it
I would prefer to work for: every country executes the evil-doers with the same standard.
As long as it isn't reality i say: Those who are not executed have 'undeserved luck'.
So better put energy to the case that all the beasts are sent to the graveyard instead of getting some away from the edge/needle/gallows who really deserve it.
I will say if my brother was sentenced in 2010 instead of years ago
I'm not familiar with that case so i can give no opinion.
Basically u are right, i don't think America (or other western nations) would execute people today for 'witchcraft' or 'adultry' as it has happened long times ago.
Do i understand right: u fight for the life of your brother?
That's totally okay for me and i admire u for that.
