Views such as those expressed in this letter always interest me, in that, as noted by the other comments, they always seek to shift the blame on to the instrument and away from the person commiting the act. Does Mr. Wright support the total prohibition of alcohol as a way to stop drunk-driving deaths? The same principle would apply. I believe we tried that once and it was a gigantic failure. The person, not the instrument, must be held accountable.
Even more interesting is the fact that, should this killer be given the death penalty, these same people will be in front of the prison protesting the execution and telling us how the killer is "not responsible".
You are both missing the point - agree or diagree, make your point, but there is no reason to get personal.
Sister, I usually enjoy your posts, but lately you seem to suffer from diarrhea of the keyboard and constipation of the intellect.
If you have a point to make, do so using facts and argument. To resort to personal comments about physical appearance is extremely small-minded and in very bad taste.
It is sad to see comments like this, especiallly in this season. Try reading the Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke or John, it might impact your thinking and capacity for empathy. Merry Christmas.
This narrow, stilted way of thinking is exactly why Albany is heading the lists for greatest increase in povery, teen pregnancy, etc.
The City can sue Greenbriar, but Greenbriar has no assets other than the hotel property, and the City will already have a lien on that property from the clean-up process, unpaid taxes, etc.
