ted kaczynski was a genius. If you look at what he did for the field of math (which I have) he did some amazing things.
If people agrue that someone's IQ is too low and they aren't competent then what about the geniuses that commit murder? Shouldn't they be exonorated too? I mean think about their IQ is so high that it should be benefitical to keep them.
I'm not being completely serious with that comment. First, I don't care if the world is shocked by what we do. The world doesn't dictate what we do. Second, our justice systems needs some major rehauling but I don't think that will ever happen.
For those who are against execution. So are you for locking up people for life? Prison was not originally intended to be that type of punishment. What I mean by that comment is that prison was not intended to be used to hold a large number of people for life. Obviously, in centuries past there were people that were imprisoned yet the conditions were far worse on the inside than on the outside of the walls. They also had less people locked up.
I lived in Colorado. Colorado has the Supermax prison that holds some of the most dangerous prisoners in U.S. I have friends that have worked there. They tell me horror stories of countless instances of stuff happening. When they deliver meals, for example, the guards hide behind a shield that's on a pulley system (its not the riot shield for it is longer/thicker probably 5 ft if not longer). All the guards are doing are just inserting food into a tiny slot. They don't serve utensils of any type so the food is eaten by hands.
Now what will happen is that inmates will make weapons (knives and darts) out of paper mache. They will usually put dookie or other body discharges on the tip of the item. If it hits or nixs you most of the inmates have some type of STD or other transmitable disease that you would rather not get. The other thing is when you try to put the food in the slot inmates will try to puncture your hand or grab your hand (try to damage your hand in a number of other ways). Yes, they do have protective gloves but I'm sure you can imagine how hard it is to handle/do anything with protective gloves on. Obviously, some form of reward system should be set up (I believe they do have a reward system) but let's be honest here you are in solitary confinement for 23 hours and only get 1 hour of a controlled activity. Do you really think a reward system will really work in that situation?
I'm all for forced labor and chain gangs. Then you have people screaming that's inhumane and what about the people who can't physically work. Usually other non-sense will come forth besides those two points. We can't forget the unions (even though less than 15% at most of people in the U.S are in a union) never like that because most of the jobs cut into union jobs.
Most of those people in Supermax prison refuse to be part of a society. I am against doing what Mexico, Cuba, and China regularly do and send your unwanted to another country.
Even with chain gains and forced labor there are some people who would absolutely refuse to be part of a society and they will do what they want. What should we do with people like that?
Besides electing them to congress or have them in congress?
Obviously, this article was about a woman who has a low IQ that was executed. What does people or the world suggest that we do with people who refuse to follow laws of a society? Who say when 'I get out I'm going to just kill another person, rape someone else again, or destory another family' what do you do with someone with that attitude?
