Re: Should Malvo Get The Death Penalty?

MBM ·
For those that believe he should be executed, how does the fact that he was a minor when the crimes were committed impact your thinking? Further, do you believe that he was influenced to commit these crimes by Muhammad? Does that relationship, and the influence that John had on Lee, at all mitigate your feelings about punishment for Malvo? There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. - Mandela

His age doesn't have an impact on my thinking at all, these thugs want to act as adults give them all that comes with it as well. As far as his relationship, there are too many positive people and factors out and about so that crap that he was influenced doesn't set with me. He made the decision so he should reap the consequences. The only thing I regret for him and all the others that are convicted (or not) is that they will tie up the system; I say 30 days and pull the switch. Before I am...

In one of my "other lives", I was a "rocker" when that happened. When I heard what we did to B.B, I really felt ashamed of how African Americans tried, and tried hard, to throw the "Blues" away.

I asked the question because Kimora Lee does not look Black... I am probably safe in saying that Russell did not know that one of her parents was black when he first saw her. So for all intents and puposes, she was an asian woman that he was pursuing. I don't see a Black man who pursues women who are not Black, as being "committed to his people".

A quick follow up: 1. Creation does not need to be ex nihilo, i.e., it does not negate continuity. As I use it, it does mean, however, that a metamorphisis does take place once the African goes through the Middle Passage and lands on this continent. There is continuity, but it is fractured and fragmented. Thus African peoples in the United States, though informed by their history, also create and adapt to their new situation. 2.
