Hmm.. interesting.. I think the dead penalty is a little too much anyway. Thats not giving an opportunity to make up for their mistakes besides sometimes innocent people end up there. I think populism should get out of the legal systems. I think the legal system with a jury think in the US is pure populism. The pretty girl vs. the not fitting to the standard guy? (refuse to say ugly) Guy is guiltier. Black? Extra guilty. Thats not fair judgment. I think I like the Dutch system slightly better then..
