The Repeal of "Crime and Punishment" and the WA Delegate's Vote.

OFFICE OF THE WORLD ASSEMBLY DELEGATION FOR THE UNITED NATIONS OF EARTHLINGS

Repeal "Crime and Punishment"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Greetings, UNOE member states. I am your cheese fries lover and WA Delegate, Hiram Land. lol

There is a current resolution going on to repeal "Crime and Punishment", a early WA law. The repeal is nessacary to the future of our great World Assembly.

For example, the repeal states that they are "Concerned, however, by Clause 1 of the target resolution, which effectively prevents a substantive ban on capital punishment across World Assembly member-states," and that they are "Convinced that such a ban would be desirable for the following reasons:

-the finality of the death penalty prevents the state from correcting any errors made in the legal and conviction processes, thereby inevitably condemning to death certain innocent individuals,

-a great many individuals facing the death penalty are unable to afford their own attorneys, and are often forced to rely on overburdened public defense mechanisms,

--any long legal process associated with the death penalty is bound to extend the pain and frustrations of crime victims, rather than provide the closure they need and desire,

the predominantly retributive model of justice employed by the death penalty has failed to deter crime in any provable way,

-permitting the death penalty represents a rejection of the notion that life has intrinsic worth merely by virtue of its existence,"

This bill wants to repeal a bill that can cause major issues in prisons abroad in WA member states (and delegates). All in all, Hiram Land, as your WA Delegate, will be happy to announce, that HL will be voting YES on this proposal.
