2012 Presidential Election & Cal Props Results (tags)

All elections confirm the class struggle that has preceded them and the 2012 presidential general election confirms the fact that there has not been much class struggle in this country. There has been some effort to bring this backward country into the fold of civilization with the placing of a repeal of the California death penalty, Prop 34, on the ballot by the voters, but as of 5 a.m., 11/7/12, it has 47% of the vote. The presidential election, with the re-election of the latest fascist war criminal in the White House with a bare 50.3% of the vote is no mandate and this termed out president is now a lame duck president. The 2016 presidential election begins today.

Zeal for the Death Penalty tramples on Victim's Family (tags)

More on the case of Steve Woodruff. The Riverside DAs granted immunity to Dennis James Smith for his 1989 killing of Arnold Palmer (not the famous one) in their rush to secure the death penalty for Woodruff. But jurors say Smith's immunized testimony was a waste of time. And the family of murder victim Palmer feel betrayed and used, and they'll never see justice done. Way to go, Mr. District Attorney.

It seems that everywhere Bush goes these days, he's confronted by people who mockingly use an image of a pretzel as a protest statement. A giant pretzel banner was carried in the streets of Paris, with the slogan "Watch out Bush!" Giant pretzels were also carried in the streets of Berlin, and many demonstrators could be seen with magic marker drawings of pretzels on their bodies or cloths. Photo by JJ Méric.

Death Penalty Democrat California Governor Gray Davis murders again, this time executing Robert Massie on March 27, 2001, who has been on and off Death Row for 36 years, courtesy us taxpayers. He was never rehabilitated, but was let out of prison, and thus killed again. Our tax dollars must go for rehabilitation, not punishment, if we are to solve any social problems at all.

Bush, Gore Both Wrong on Death Penalty Deterrence (tags)

Bush and Gore both support for the death penalty, based on the claim it's a deterrent. But the evidence says they're wrong. We're not supposed to punish people if there's a reaonable doubt about their guilt. But what if there's much more than a reasonable doubt about the punishment?
