Timothy McVeigh
    #2968382 - 08/05/04 04:39 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Timothy McVeigh is dead. He was put to death last year for killing 168 people in the Oklahoma City Bombing. I have never heard a reasonable person claim that he was innocent. The case should have been a sure thing from the begining, and the governement got the conviction.

The Federal Government paid 15.1 million dollars to DEFEND Timothy McVeigh. That number boggles my mind and it pisses me off. I paid 15.1 million to defend a guy that killed babies in Oklahoma. Could someone please explain to me how in the hell you pay 15.1 million dollars to defend anyone, let alone somebody who has evidence stacked against him like McVeigh? And for 15.1 million, I don't even think that they presented a very compelling defense.

People talk about Justice at any cost, but justice like this comes at a very high cost. Think of the people who suffered in the bombing. Think of the victims families that could better use those resources. I think it is insanity.

I thought McVeigh admitted his guilt, so I don't understand why they spent so much... maybe because lawyers control our government and they all like to pay each other outrageous sums at the taxpayers' expense.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I would have defended him for 14.9.

You would have done just as well. They will spend that money defending a capital murder case to avoid any stench whatsoever that someone was sent to the chamber without having been adequately represented.

I honestly don't remember him every claiming that he was innocent. Must have been a tough case.

15.1 million. That is more than the aggregate income of three hundred American families making the median. Think about how hard those families have to work just while our government just gives it away. May God Bless America.

Lawyers shouldn't exist. It's a ridiculous system when the amount you can pay correlates with the likelyhood of you getting away with something.

The defense still has a role in the case even if the defendant pleads guilty. Probably most of the defense's argument was trying to convince the jury to give him life in prison instead of the death penalty.
