How about open season on Cork people too?

Hardly worth investigating their deaths.

What person in their right mind would follow South Africa as an example of how to run a society?

So was apartheid, do you think that's a good idea as well?

Yeah, removing any chance of prosecution is sure to wipe out violence...

Where is there a precedence for this? There is worse than what I am proposing, Idi Amin killed hundreds of thousands of his own citizens.

So if South Africa has done it, it must be good?

Protip: If you're looking for an example of a country to hold up as a civil/criminal ideal, stay away from the South Africa. So many things wrong with that country, I don't know where to start.

What exactly should be made legal?

So if you have a young girl, born into poverty is killed in a car crash, you are asking if her death should be legal?

Why would it not be illegal?

Mods, can I be banned for calling somebody a retard? Just a question, not a statement of intent.

Yeah, and that place was a shining example of how to run a country. There was another precedence in South Africa prior to the 90s - apartheid. Would that be okay here too?

If that's a dig at my post, you might want to take a look at the name and location of the OP.

I am talking about homicide/murder. If she died in an accident, she died in an accident.

Do you think that should be implemented here? It would be nice to see scum killers not getting a trial IMO.
Who sets the border between poor-rich and scumbag-not scumbag?

I'm originally from flats, don't drive 09 BMW, I drink cheap alcohol and sometimes smoke more or less legal substances and I greatly enjoy it - am I a scumbag so?

What about the foreigners, could they be shot "as they are" as a form of relax for stressed by the credit crunch rich Irish families?
