Suicide of Death Row inmate underscores prolonged appellate process leading to delays

Jun 9, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

California's automatic death penalty appeals take so long that the state's 723 condemned inmates are more likely to die of old age and infirmities - or kill themselves - than be put to death.

ZERO TOLERANCE FOR PUNK THUGS
Drugs are not the problem mate,it's the prohibition of them which means I can only score my drugs off the Mafia etc,this stupid policy turned the Alcohol trade over to the gangsters in the past, and has done the same with the drug trade now, the US & the UK are fighting a long lost war on drugs & as an Adult I will not be told what substances I can or can't take!, my body my choice. And the dumb hypocrisy of the state saying Alcohol & tobacco are ok, whilst other drugs are bad makes the law look stupid & be ignored. If you want to use booze as your drug of choice great go ahead, but don't tell me I can't smoke or sniff my drug of choice,

You druggies can Get as high a kite and OD for all I care but go do it on an isolated island away for the rest of us who dont need drugs to feel good about ourselves.

Some of the greatest thinkers in history have dabbled in drugs, the average drug user is brighter then the average Christian. And of course the government can prohibit certain drugs, but I choose to ignore those laws, there's f***ed up drug users just as theres f***ed up Alcoholics, it's the person thats the problem not the drug

Drug abusers lead a sad sorry life. Drug abuse tears families apart and destroys lives and adversely affects society as a whole.

JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS!!!

I'm so pleased for you that your drug free and proud, yeah really whoo! Of course excess drug use can cause problems & only a fool would say otherwise. But my point is that alcohol & tobacco are drugs too, Booze wrecks more lives them all the illegal drugs combined, the bogus war on drugs was lost before it even started, and after the untold billions spent on this ill thought out attempt at telling kids to say no,the drugs trade is bigger then ever, the main winners in this lost war apart from the Cartels and the corrupt politicians are the DEA, prisons and other government agencies. FFS even your CIA have used drug money to fight dirty secret wars, from central America in the 70's & 80's to Afghanistan today, and the drugs keep flowing and allways will. Just say No? Lol, I'll decide what to say myself thanks, and its a big yes please!!!. now I'm out of here to load up my bong, try it. It beats Jesus hands down.

In a perfect world, those would be banned too. They're detrimental to the health of our society.

Your point is obviousley a good one, but I enjoy getting wasted, and despite what you think my life is good, I have all the "stuff" own my own home, mortgage paid off, car, big TV and satellite system. I won't get into the God & Satan Fairytail as I'm educated and quite well travelled,like many Brits.I just enjoy taking various substances,just as fo many of your countrymen, but for someone to say I'm dumb, then mention Satan in the same sentence is so funny, you can have your skyfairy nonsense and I'll stick to my various substances, after all religion is the opium for the masses. although I did once use the pages from a Gideon bible for rolling spliffs, we called it having A holy smoke, I've allways thought there ought to pictures in the bible, it would be much more interesting, are you one of the ones that think Dinosaurs were on Noahs Ark? c'mon mate seriously T Rex on a little wooden boat! If you believe that you've defo took way too much acid sometime in your life!! Once when a couple of mates and I were tripping our heads off we honestly believed we'd seen Jesus up a tree in a local park, it was mental. And do you believe in that rapture thing, floating up into the air!! A good xtasy can do that for ya. Why not bin the bible, or smoke it, and turn to Rastafarianism, then you can have God & weed together!! It's a win win for ya, and if Jesus existed he was a Socialist Hippy, he loved a bottle if wine & hashish was a common pain killer/ sleep aid for his gang of hippy disciples. Peace mate
