josepp BS: Bulger, Thompson, Venables (283* d) RE: BS: Bulger, Thompson, Venables 01 May 11

/////What is clear is we have a bunch of vigilantes with a lynch mob mentality rarin' to 'get' (execute or bang away for life) two children who the law prohibits from treating as adults.
None of you are prepared to bite the bullet and say (or even address) that you would be prepared to abandon the legal limitation as applied to all children - including your own.
Some of you have concocted pseudo- psychological theories to suggest that we are born the way we remain in order to justify this leap backwards.
Two of you make no pretence of wishing two young people executed for crimes committed when they were children - though one of you has added the rider "or at least until another inmate does the job for us and snuffs them out."/////

Here's where liberalism and I part company--the insane idea that everybody deserves a second chance. No everybody doesn't deserve a second chance--that's just common sense. SOME deserve a second chance. Others clearly DO NOT. And Venables and Thompson fall into the latter category, I'm afraid. Christ, we kill stray pets if nobody wants them because we can't afford to keep caring for them in shelters but these two shit globs have some kind of societal value and have to kept alive and protected at all costs?? Could someone explain this because Jim Carroll obviously can't.
