Guess the US isnt alone on this topic. I find it very interesting that the government of quite a few countries and states would rather blame the corporation than the person or their guardians. This is as ridiculous as blaming a tobacco company for lung cancer or mouth cancer. When are people going to understand that a video game company is not at fault for a persons F#$%ed up behavior?
The death penalty is fine by me. I believe the bible says "an eye for an eye". If you MURDER someone, then you deserve to die. If you rape someone, then you deserve to go to jail and get raped. If you rape and kill someone, then you deserve to go to jail and get raped while you wait to be executed. Theft is not punishable by death in my eyes, but im sure it is in some country.
