The hemlock was NOT directed at you but the twits that fail to grasp Johnson was arrested and charged by the DA, kicked off his choice, that decision was backed up by the FSU President, Florida sports writers as well has SI and others have commented on the appropriate action AND Johnson has apologized for his behavior and enrolled in substance abuse and battered women counseling. I understood your Socratic reference and play off it with the hemlock. Thanks for the reps.
Thanks guy. It's been a rough summer so far for us here.
I'll even add to your side of the argument revenge (as you've said), Martyrdome, economics. Here is my point...I am not sure of the deterrent issue...as well, rather we should be bigger than this as a society or not, there is a sense of justice in its "ballanced" nuance in society as a whole...people not directly involved/impacted tend to see "fair" or "ballance" when a killer is killed. I believe that sense of ballance is of equal import to the operation of the justice system. JMHO based on my anecdotal experience.
I might still chime in after the (explosive) dust settles, but it would be a tough row to hoe. I slogged through both threads "real time." Revisiting and dissecting the idiotic, fractured and dissonant "logic" that cropped up might cause my normal, borderline low blood pressure to skyrocket into the red zone.
Hope you didn't think I was attacking you in that Rep post I sent earlier. I was agreeing with your comment to buster, not suggesting that you were one of those who revert to namecalling and the like. Just wanted to be clear. lol
