Minority of innocent!!!

So lets be sure and get this straight: you are perfectly willing to let innocent people die just so that those who actually deserve the punishment are, in fact, punished?

You're joking, right? Go watch "Locked Up" or whatever it's called on MSNBC. They play it pretty much every night.

And therefore showing you are worse than the criminals and falling right into the Joker's hands. I hope you're joking, because that's a completely psychotic point of view to take.
