That's irrelevant, as the justice system is not to be a method for taking revenge, but to make society a better place to live in, with less crime.
This is just a bald assertion of the purpose of the justice system, with no source or explanation. Some people do see the justice system as a method for taking revenge, which is better than having the victims of crime and their families take revenge. I know I feel a need for revenge when someone wrongs my family members. Everyone knows where that leads.
The rational decision for them is to do anything not to get caught, including more murders.
This might be true, but taking the death penalty off the table will not make this problem go away. If the maximum penalty is life in prison, and a person has already committed crimes to warrant a life sentence, isn't the "rational decision for them is to do anything not to get caught, including more murders."? So this was a flawed argument.
Unless there's a way to bring people back to life again, that in itself should be enough to put a stop to it.
Again, changing the punishment to life incarceration doesn't make the problem go away. If you put someone in jail for life, and then at the end of his life, find out he wasn't guilty, what do you do then? Press the reset button? No, the person's life is just as wasted, and there isn't much anyone can do. And if no one ever determines that the innocent person is innocent, then their life is completely wasted in prison, in my opinion. So, because we might punish the innocent, do we stop handing out long sentences? There is no perfect system, period. If we want to punish anyone, we have to accept a level of mistakes. Is 4% to high? I don't know. What about
A nice try, calling the studies on the effects of food on living organisms "the food conspiracy theorist canon". If you are in fact a shill, the irony would be pretty thick. Because it is no conspiracy theory to say that the HFCS producers have lobbyists and public relations campaign which runn commercials and tried to change the name to "corn sugar". Facts. And you seem to be motivated to spread disinformation, citing blogs by people with no training against peer reviewed studies. And it is not only ONE study. I also read a similar study coming out of Ireland, but unfortunately I can't find the cite for that. But seriously. You bemoan ONE study when you have mere blogs, and who knows who is backing them. And you seem quick to close the case, without citing a contradictory peer reviewed study not backed by the HFCS producers.
It is this kind of simplistic outlook that really misleads people, yourself included. There is a difference between 12 grams of sugar in strawberries and a banana, and 12 grams of sugar mixed into water. First, the body metabolizes different sugars using different organs. Second, it is notoriously old and well known that natural sugars in fruits enter the bloodstream more slowly than, e.g. refined cane sugar or high fructose corn syrup mixed into flavored water. That makes a difference in how the body processes it. If the sugar is coming too fast to be dumped into the bloodstream all at once, it may be stored as fat. If it metabolizes more slowly, more of it can be burned as needed. Third you completely MISSED the fact that the guy is consuming these calories in the morning. WHEN someone eats could matter even more that what they eat. http://www.sciencedaily.com/re... The morning is probably the best possible time to eat some fruits, especially if they are mixed with protein. Really, you should limit your daily output of reductionist tripe. Nutrition and metabolism are incredibly complex. Don't over-simplify.
