We don't need this kind of bloodthirsty behaviour from our prosecutors. I think that this kind of juvenile crass disregard for the system of justice is way over the top. Sure, a high five behind closed doors is OK, I guess, but steak and bourbon? Plaques with needles on them? These jerks need to practice some solemnity when dealing with these cases. There is no need to fan the flames of racism on either side; all that will accomplish is making it more difficult to mete out justice.
My second problem: the system of prosecution rewards convictions, not truth. Something has got to change in a big way, so we can have a little more confidence in the system. I don't personally support the death penalty in America at this time. The numerous individuals exonerated under what are usually very obvious cases of innocence has changed my mind on this issue.
Give me a prosecutorial system that encourages and rewards honesty and truth, with noone getting the needle without solid forensic evidence, and I will gladly support the ultimate punishment.
I agree, the views I am seeing here turn my stomach as well. Some of you really need to pay attention to that hot feeling on the back of your neck. It's called SHAME.
If the prosecuter is representing ME, the PEOPLE, I want him to WANT to put that sonavabitch to death. I want him to eat it, sleep it, love it. The defendant has an attorney who should be that devoted to him, the judge keeps order, the jury decides. If you don't like that system, don't murder anyone.
