Death Penalty Madness

Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris would NOT have been eligible for the death penalty according to the latest SCOTUS ruling.

Justice Scalia dissented:

"The Court thus proclaims itself sole arbiter of our Nation's moral standards--and in the course of discharging that awesome responsibility purports to take guidance from the views of foreign courts and legislatures. Because I do not believe that the meaning of our Eighth Amendment, any more than the meaning of other provisions of our Constitution, should be determined by the subjective views of five Members of this Court and like-minded foreigners, I dissent."
