Maiken you are walking a Thin line. This is a PRO DP site. Your views are welcome, as long as they are respectful of the members. We do not care if a convicted murderer loves dogs and children. They KILLED someone. Keep that in mind. You will not convince us that DR inmates are wonderful people.
Thanks for that answer. NO, I do NOT want to convince anyone, that death row inmates are wonderful people in general.
In general 90% are real scums, did murder and are there for a good reason.
I simply wanted you to think about two things.
First one whether DP is a solution to most heinous crimes.
Second, that there always were people on DP, wrongfully committed or too harsh and that the whole DP system does not serve the purpose it was wanted to.
Simply read, what happened to my tomcat Tiger.
He NEVER attacked someone, this whole thing was made up about him. Yet JTiscool also thinks, that he must have been a killer.
He never was, yet by only accusing him of that, he became a kind of monster in certain peoples eye.
You are right, that there are persons and also animals which are not redeemable. Question is, how to deal with them.
At the animal rescue station we had a huge Rottweiler, named Max.
His former owner had beaten such much the shit out of him, that he remained dangerous. No one was allowed to come near him with his hands.
Still he was allowed to stay at the station, most time in the bureau.
Nearly every member of the staff got bitten by him at least once. But no one wanted to do him away. We kept him from contact with children and visitors and he was euthanised for ill health at the age of 12.
But he was unredeemable, unable to change anymore.
Same boils down to people and the question how to deal with such persons in a way that fits a human society.
I do not want to change anyones mind, I just want to be a kind of remembrance, that there could be other solutions apart from hate and disgust and suffering. Thats all.
