    MANILA, Philippines --President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo signed a law abolishing the death penalty on Saturday, giving final approval to a measure that divided many Filipinos.

    Arroyo, who like most of her people is Roman Catholic, sought to assure the nation that her opposition to capital punishment had not undermined her commitment to fighting crime.


    Thought this was interesting, one would think they would of kept it in their fight against terrorism .

    It's because they want to join the EU. Where the death penalty is illegal under the European Convention on Human Rights. Article 1 as I recall.

    That makes sence then ,I always admired the forward thinking of the Phlip's a woman president was a good move .

    Wish Canada would bring back capital punishment tho even if just for crimes against children .

    What with DNA testing now less chance of a wrongful conviction too I would guess .

    FFS, this is one of the worst threads ever.

    Right, lets think about stuff for a minute.

    No, honest, I want you to pause.








    Why the flying mother fucking arse is the death penalty going to put off a bloke who thinks he's going to get fortyleven virgins in heaven.

    War against terror my arse - it's clearly a domestic issue and it's a good thing that they're not going to kill people in a retribution stylee.

    You know I make sense.

    depends on how the death penalty is viewed. IMO it is not a deterent, it is a punishment

    who said "War against terror"? that is a bush administration slogan.
    the Philippines had domestic terrorist problem long before we joined the club, and just because it is domestic doesn't mean they aren't terrorists, but that was just one example of when the death sentence could be enacted.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    yes indeed, serving time with 3 meals a day, television and an exercise yard is rather more harsh than being excecuted.
    Death rows are just full of people trying to get excecuted so they don't have to be incarcerated and those serving life are just begging to end it all
    And if some want to die...good riddance.

    lolz. and no-one has ever tried to kill themselves in prison and nobody has ever decided to stop being a criminal cawk smoker and no-one has ever been found not guilty after being convicted and nobody has ever wanted to be a martyr for a cause and noone has ever tried to commit suicide by cop.

    you seem to have a very high opinion as to your own attractiveness or a low opinion of your reputation

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.
