    An interesting statistic to me a that death penalty punishments cost more than life imprisonment. To me that simple fact makes life imprisonment the preferable way to deal with offenders so dangerous they can never be allowed to mix with the public. Here I am thinking about serial offenders. Serial killers, serial rapists etc. if someone is not a theoretical threat for life, a life sentence doesnít make sense.

    Prison is about two things in my mind, a chance for rehabilitation and a way to protect the broader public. The punishment aspect to me doesnít seem that .
    important. I believe evidence shows itís not much of a deterrent.

    That said itís complicated and we need to speak on a case by case basis. Jail terms for marijuana for example are crazy. Whereas (I may be wrong here) I have been led to believe that evidence suggests pedophiles canít be rehabilitate. If thatís the case they should stain in jail for life. Releasing them only to put them in a sex offenders registry for life is to mind ridiculous. They are either rehabilitations and safe, or not in whcih case they are still a danger and shouldnít have been released.

    Similarly how some states in America take away felons rights
    To vote for life for example. You have to give people a chance to earn their life back otherwise why reform?

    Random thought: Iíd have to do more research if I was actually on death row, but firing squad is probably more humane than lethal injection or electric chair. Iíd probably choose it. Though I donít think itís healthy to make prison guards act as a firing squad.

    Regarding vaccine patents, for me the big questions is this. South Africa was one of the companies championing it at the WTO. Even if the patents are limited I am not sure of How South Africa plans to suddenly mass produce the vaccine itself. The state tried to create a vaccine company BioVac, but Im not sure it was very succesful. Also given SOuth Africas track record of running state owned/managed parastatals Id be sceptical.

    Why do you think this would be so expensive, have you noticed the clones also look different? They have the ability to draw different things, use different colors.

    What are you talking about? Even the 5 clones are not all the same color. Echo is the palest. Crosshairs and tech are in the middle. Wrecker is darker.

    The fact they were black and the other clones wear white might explain some of the difference but a google search shows Iím not alone in seeing this.

    Congrats dude. I have a friend in SA who has been trying to get out for years, poor guy. Anyway, I *thought* you were paying a little more attention to US politics than you used to. You have always paid attention but there is a discernible difference...
