DeathLaw - Miscellaneous

1. It looks as though Britain may change its death penalty law to reflect that of the United States.

2. Mexico extradites a man because 40 years isn't the same as a death sentence.

3. Prosecutors decline to prosecute on guns charges because the accused is going off to face a murder charge. When he is found not guilty, all of the sudden they want to prosecute him again. Illegal? No. Unconstitutional? Probably not. Unjust? Probably. It sounds a lot like saying if we cannot get you for what we want to get you then we will get you for something for which we're not really interested in getting you. Just as long as you go to prison.
