    I believe that no one has the right to kill

    anyone no matter what he/she had done. The government or the police has no right to kill a criminal just because they feel they had the power to do so.

    for drug trafficking have alleged that it was suggested to them that they may receive a lighter sentence if they offered to bribe the judge. If the Indonesian head of state really wants to rid his country of WESTERN EVIL he should start by cleaning up his own back yard. EVIL IS...

    The Death Penalty Is Alway Wrong

    I am a christian woman who will never support the death penalty. There is life without parole for a reason. As a Christian woman the  10 commandments tell me thou shall not kill and that to me means everyone. Killing to show killing is not what makes sense to me at all. The...
