I said it was wrong to kill her. That is my opinion. Nothing can change it. No list of "facts" will ever change it.
And I put "facts" in quotes because most of the so-called "facts" posted here were in fact "opinion." Whether it was a poster's opinion, a reporter's opinion, her husband's opinion, a relative's opinion, a supporter's opinion, a detractor's opinion, a politician's opinion, a lawyer's opinion, a doctor's opinion, the president's opinion, the governor's opinion, or even the judge's opinion - they were and are all opinions.
And none of them are incontrovertible or indisputable fact.
In fact, they continue calling in more doctors and more experts to give their opinion even after it's all said and done. In this battle of press, public, politicians, doctors, lawyers and "experts" the side with the most thumbs down votes won and she was killed. What was it, two out of three or three out of five? How about we go for seven out of twelve? How about one "no" vote out of twelve and you don't execute?
The last I heard, in this country when you are on trial for your life, if there is one doubtful juror, you don't receive a death sentence. The accused receives the benefit of the doubt. Of course, Terri did not even receive the benefit of a trial much less the benefit of the doubt. She was simply snuffed out per a judge's order based on three out of five expert "opinions." It's a shame and a disgrace and a mockery of justice.
That the Justice system did not do so for Terri is a travesty and a mockery...and down right scary. Something we must fight to the hilt.
Bang a gavel, end a life, pretty cool...
Thank you - this was a most awesome statement!
Well said, and to the point.
God rest her soul.
Doesn't matter what I think, Jim's always right. Hehe. Actually, I think I agree
What I can't get over is all the FReepers I have seen disparage JimRob for his position. As if FR was their creation and not his, and should rightly be able to follow the direction he wants it to take.
I'm thinking that all the bitterness of the folks who can't take others disagreeing with them on this matter is what is making the current FReepathon progress so slowly. Well, at least it's progressing slowly in my estimation (yes, to whoever is thinking the question, I've already made my donation).
I do agree with the opinion on Terri.
