quoth Mike Lorrey---
: I would expect that criminals would have the choice themselves of either
: being executed if they refused remorse, or imprisonment from life on
: downward with remorse and a commitment to restitution. A truly guilty
: criminal without remorse is merely a mad dog to be put down.

Would you kill someone for saying, "My thoughts are the only
privacy I have left; they are not for you" ?

Would you kill a convict for continuing to insist he's innocent?
