CET BS: Too obese to execute (147* d) RE: BS: Too obese to execute 19 Sep 12

So you would execute people who plead guilty, but not those who present a defence and lose? How many guilty pleas do you think there are in first degree murder cases in the real world?

The point I wanted to make about the death penalty is that where it exists, innocent people are found guilty and killed by the State. That is a fact. If you want to kill this fat guy, you have to accept killing people like Morin, Milgaard, Truscott and all the others.

There are only two verdicts on any charge: guilty and not guilty. There is no "really, really guilty" or "guilty beyond the shadow of a doubt" or "guilty plus he admitted it". I don't think you really want to put Guy-Paul Morin to death, but you have not thought through the logic of what you wrote.
