ADL, I can't wait to hear about your Brooklyn acceptance! You did apply, didn't you?
I got on the subway this morning ya'll, there were these two cats LAID OUT on the floor of the subway sleep. I'm talking arms out, legs out, on their backs looking like they were making snow angels on the subway floor. I thought they were dead for a minute b/c they looked like how somebody would be laid out who had been shot, but then one of 'em rolled over a little bit and started snoring.
DNA evidence isn't infallable... Depends on who is painting the picture and manipulating the facts. So lets not pretend that innocent people don't get put to death, today. However, my threshold is a little lower than Sands. Osama's brood needs to die, but Tookie...i'm not so sure.Not to be ridiculously controversial, but the man you are talking about is personally responsible for killing 4 innocent people, and starting one of the most violent street gangs in the US.
It's easy to talk about "cruelty" in the death penalty, until your family is the victim of a capital offense.
If someone rapes and murders my wife and daughter, and the state responds by housing the killer in a penitentiary with 3 square meals and a roof over his head, I wouldn't feel that justice has been served.
family law is interesting to me, but I plan on going in to private practice. I have an internship downtown and I get angry frequently over how little the government pays its employees.
My goal is to make a relatively decent living and work with people in a legal setting, like doing family law or something of that kind. That's why I majored in social work, I've already had clients and what not and I really like it. However, going to school for 7 years to be broke doesn't make a lot of sense to me, so of course income and debt are hugr factors. My undergrad was paid for, however my law degree won't be.
Congrats on Loyola, Alabama, and Rutgers....but, for ADL when did you find out about Rutgers. Also, was it through e-mail or regular mail??
