Supposing an AI were to decide judgement . . .

...perhaps then Justice would truly be blind.
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

My problem with the death penalty is that there's no good use for it. You have a dubious case you risk killing an innocent person. You have a clear cut case, the vast majority of the time the person is looking to be made a martyr. It's lose/lose.

True, but locking someone up for a very long time isn't a solution either, unless there are ways to cure the person safely and permanently.

I'm not averse to the death penalty, apparently it's cheaper to keep them in jail than to kill them but I think there's room for some cost cutting in that equation.  It's not really a big issue for me though.

My point would be killing and brutal incarceration are both unpleasant options.
There are brutal people to be dealt with though.
I think I'd choose a quick death.  Guillotine seems quick and less prone to failure than most of the others. 

If you were imprisoned for life, there would be plenty of options to get yourself killed without the state doing it officially.  You could kill yourself, you could piss off another inmate or gang of inmates,  you could attack a guard and get shot, or try to escape and get shot.  The options would be endless if you didn't want to spend 40 years behind bars.

You say “You could kill yourself” and then offer three hit and miss ways to get someone else to kill or damage my precious self.
Endless ways, I could gnaw into my wrist I suppose.

Don't let the state kill its citizens officially, but giving them the option to kill themselves is acceptable. 

They take away your shoe laces and design cells so there’s nowhere to tie to.
I don’t agree with this officially/unofficially shit, government should own their actions.
They're taking a persons life away one way or another.

"Don't let the state kill its citizens officially!"

Government own your actions, Transparency!

We're getting nowhere with this, I challenge you to a battle of placards in the square, lunchtime tomorrow.

Of course it's OK for the State to officially kill citizens of other states.

What kind of weird fuck are you to even ask that?


I was asking for a friend, well not really a friend, less than an acquaintance really.

Well, this is interesting.
You will pray so that Charles Manson's soul makes it to the purgatory. Tell me again, SisterAgatha, where is it that your god tell you The Happy Atheists will go (directly) after they/we die?

We don't know where atheists go and it's not where you think.

Up until the last moment,...they have a chance to say they are so sorry

There is hope for all of you but Id get on board soon..

First of all, "We?"
Who is, "We?"
Is it you and your imaginary friend who tells you what you want to hear all the time?

Second, what are we supposed to be sorry about? --According to you and your imaginary friend.

It's not perfect but it stops them from becoming what they want.

That's such an unbelievably stupid statement  :rofl:

This constitutes trolling "There is hope for all of you but Id get on board soon.." on an atheist forum. You've had one break for trolling, do you want another longer one?
