Who Needs the Death Penalty?

Certainly not this guy.

It runs counter to what you would expect but when you treat evil with respect and try to play fair with it, it grows far worse. You're both playing a different game and evil knows no rules. That's why no gun zones don't work and our revolving door justice system is doing nothing to prevent crime. We must have a firm and strong hand against crime.

I find it strange that they are banning smoking in movies because -

"the primary reason is that cigarette smoking is a hazard and we should avoid depicting it in movies and on television,"

but violence is glorified to such a degree it boggles the mind - in movies, video games and music - and of course, the excuse is that watching violence in movies or video games doesn't influence anyone to commit violent acts.

For all the knowledge we have in this country, in the world, there is one thing we lack - wisdom.

But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell? Man does not comprehend its worth; it cannot be found in the land of the living (Job 28:12-13)
