No, you have stabbings instead -- and you still have shootings anyway. Your gun laws didn't
do much to save Jo Cox, did they? How did Tommy Mair get a gun, anyway, if "the whole of
the UK is a gun free zone"?
Yes, it makes me think that if Jo Cox had been allowed to carry a handgun for self defense,
she'd probably still be alive.
They're keep resuscitating him. In the US, a life sentence does not
necessarily mean life if there is an possibility of parole. There are
life without parole sentences but I don't know if they apply to every
jurisdiction. Even with them there exists the possibility at some time a
court could decide they were cruel and unusual punishment and over turn
them. Stacking sentences means if you're eligible for parole for the
first one after 20 years, then you can spend the next 20 years working
on a parole for your second offense, and so forth.
The other part is to protect against one of the sentences being
overturned. For example, in this case, if during an appeal it was found
X was actually killed by police fire, there are still six sentences to go.
FMC (Federal Medical Center) Rochester is an administrative facility for
handling inmates with special health problems, including mental health.
As prisons go, it has to be a lot better than places like USP Florence
The entire process was a charade. At first Loughner was found
incompetent. He was treated with anti-psychotics in an attempt to get
him rational enough to try. When he refused the anti-psychotics, the 9th
Circuit, the most liberal in the nation, found that since he was
presumed innocent, he could not be forced to take medication. The Feds
continued treatment and the 9th turned down a new appeal.
Part of the sentencing was political. The state of Arizona could have
began proceedings on behalf of the Arizona citizens who had been killed
along with those who were Federal government members but this allowed
them to say 'what can we do that the Federal judge didn't?'
That still seems daft to me. If he's sentenced to life for each and
every one of the murders, then if he is subsequently proved to be
innocent of one or more of those murders he would still be serving life
for the other ones and the life sentence could only be quashed if he is
cleared of all of the murders.
It just seems to be overly complicated.
I think Elizabeth would be surprised to hear that she has no
First of all, over 60 percent of the firearms deaths in the United States are suicides, not
Second, we have 112,600 guns per 100,000 people; you have 6,600. So the disparity isn't
nearly as large as you would make it appear to be.
Finally, we're also a lot of *free* Neanderthals who are not subjects of any monarch.
Remember that our country was founded because *your* monarch was a despot.
