Re: “We Sold Our Souls, a tribute to Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne

Brick Alley, a local cover band covering Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots, Local H, Weezer, and putting our own twist on Green Day, Radiohead, and R.E.M songs, will be taking the stage at 11 after the tribute band. We have been on the bill since the moment the show was booked a month ago. See you all there!

Re: “Gobble Gobble Turkey Wobble

Where would a family in need of a very large turkey go? If giving away things that go with bird like mushy taters as kids call them rolls etc would be great

Re: “Colorado Springs Oktoberfest

We went on family day and it wasn't very family friendly. There was nothing for our kids to do, it was a very small event, the food wasn't that good, and was over priced. It was a waste of my time and money. Will not be going again

Re: “Grace and St. Stephens Blood Drive

A little late isn't it? It ended early this afternoon.

A strange thing to be doing during church on a Sunday morning. Did they fill the place with beds and draw blood from everyone in place of the sermon?

Re: “The Glass Menagerie

This was a great play with great players. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. The mother, Amanda , was brilliant, I liked her enthusiasm , Tom was versatile and Laura was in her own world and sweet, Jim was not likeable to me, but he played the part. My only regret is that i cannot whistle, because they did an outstanding job! Loved it!!!

Re: “"Beyond Repair: The Death Penalty in Colorado"

INNOCENTS ARE MORE AT RISK WHEN WE ALLOW MURDERERS TO LIVE
Dudley Sharp

Innocents Matter

Do anti death penalty folks really care about innocents at risk? Of course.

But, for their leadership, they would prefer to see an additional 6.3 murdered innocents, instead of the execution of 1250 known murderers (2).

Astounding.

For some very well known leaders of the anti death penalty movement, their motivation is not protecting innocents, but protecting the lives of all murderers, no matter the cost in innocent lives. That's their moral choice.


THE LOW RISK OF EXECUTING THE INNOCENT

Depending upon review, possibly we have sent from 25-40 actually innocent people to death row, or about 0.4% of the 8400 so sentenced in the modern era, post Furman v Georgia (1972) (1).

So far, the evidence is that the death penalty is 99.6% accurate in finding actually guilty murderers guilty and 100% accurate in sparing those actually innocent from an unjust execution.

It is unlikely that there is a more accurate system.

There appears to be no proof of an innocent executed in the US, at least since the 1930's.

That includes the Troy Davis, Cameron Willingham and Carlos DeLuna cases.

It is much more likely that an actual innocent, sentenced to life, will die in prison, than it is that an actual innocent will be executed.

About 5000 prisoners, on average, under custody, die every year in the US (2).

On average, we have executed about 33 murderers per year since 1973.

In addition, at least 14,000 additional innocents have been murdered by murderers we have allowed to harm, again, since 1973, the year that US states started to re-enact new death penalty statutes after Furman v Georgia (2).

Since 1973, somewhere between 40,000 and 200,000 actual innocents have been murdered in the US by criminals who were under the government supervision of parole or probation, at the time of the murders. (2).
====== ==================

FOOTNOTES

THE DEATH PENALTY: SAVING MORE INNOCENT LIVES

Innocents are more at risk without the death penalty.

Of all endeavors that put innocents at risk, is there one with a better record of sparing innocent lives than the US death penalty? Unlikely.

Re: “GrowthBusters

I'm looking forward to the first "big-screen" showing of GrowthBusters in Colorado Springs in several months. We'll be showing the new "Final Cut" of the film, and I'll be there. Don't be the last person in in Colorado Springs to see this film (C. Springs plays a staring role)!

This is not sponsored by the City of Manitou, everything is being provided by American Legion. It is still open to the public, but it not an official "Manitou Springs" event.
