I don't understand why people think the rich are treated differently in this country.

This is the reason I am totally against the death penalty in the USA, except for especially heinous crimes. Such as torture and murder, or rape and murder.

The reason: "You will never see a rich man sentenced to death". They have lots of funds to get great lawyers. Thats a double standard that should not be allowed.

If it were not for that, I would be for the death penalty.

In the case of Murdoff, we have a guy that bilked 50 billion dollars out of folks. Thats a lot of bananas. He now gets to lay back in his 7 million dollar condo until he goes to court. If I were to get caught shop lifting a $20.00 item from a store, I would most likely spend the night in jail. Another double standard.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.
