  1. More than 200 prisoners have been exonerated since 1989 by DNA evidence.

    46 states have passed laws tat allow inmate to get DNA tests.

    The 13 year old boy was put in a dog cage for more then a year before he died.

    I believe if you can kill your child or someone you believe in your child or you have raised and you kill them you do not have a heart so you should not being living. but that is just my opinion.

  2. 1.More than 200 prisoners have been exonerated since 1989 by DNA evidence.
    2.46 states have passed the law that allows inmates to get DNA tests.
    3.The 13 year old boy was treated cruelly in the article he was beating,force feed , and eventually killed.
    4. The first article was about the scientist learning how to use DNA as evidence and the second article is about a cruel father who killed his son.i do believe in the death penalty depending on the crime a person committed.

  3. 1. More than 200 prisoner have been exonerated since 1989 by DNA evidence.

    2. As of June 2009, 46 states had passed laws to enable prison inmates to get a DNA test.But still people are trying to get around these laws.

    3. He was treated like an animal. He was locked in a dog cage for more then a year before he died. How do you lock a human in a dog cage?

    4. No i do not believe in the death penalty because taking a life is very wrong. Even if that person toke a life do not meas his/her should be because he/she is someone brother or sister, mom or dad or anything. Two wrongs does not make a right. taking one life will not brig back the other. But i do believe the man in the article should spend the rest of his life in prison for what he did to that little boy.

  7. 1.)There has been 200 prisoners that have been exonerated since 1989 by the DNA evidence.

    2.)46 States in the U.S.have passed the law to allow allowed inmates to get DNA tests.

    3.)The thirteen year old boy in this article was treated like he wasn't even welcome in to his fathers family and he was treated as if he did something really bad so his dad did something to him n neglected him abused him n held him bound to do whatever because of his actions that he'd took.

    4.)About the DNA evidence that article talks about how if people that got rape charges and murderer charges they should get their DNA tooken because if they did so as such then they need to get what follows behind it.And about the Death penalty if u commit a murder crime u are going to get the death penalty depending on the charge. And do i believe in the death penalty yes i do because i feel like this everything bad a person do knows that there is consequences for our actions and for somebody to sit up here n kill somebody accidentally or on purpose they deserve to die to just because they took that persons life or raped them, that is nasty and people don't deserve that.

  9. 1. There were more than 200 people exonerated by DNA since 1989.Almost all of whom had been incarcerated for murder or rape.
    2. As of June 2009 46 states had passed the law s to enable prison inmates to get DNA tests.In many jurisdictions, prosecutors have been using new arguments to get around the intent of those laws,particularly in cases with multiple defendants.
    3.He was was abused with blunt objects and put in a put in a dog cage and left there for a year before he died.Then he was wrapped in trash bags and buried under there shed .
    4.I don't really know if i believe in the death penalty or not because if someone killed a person that I loved then yes i probably would be all for the death penalty but if someone I loved killed someone wrong or not I most likely would not want them to get the death penalty. so with that being said I don't know if I want the death penalty of not.

  10. 1.There have been more than 200 prisoners exonerated since 1989 through DNA evidence.
    2.There is 46 states that have passed laws to enable prisoners to get DNA.
    3.The 13 year old boy was beaten by his father and stepmother.He was kept in a fold up dog cage with 7 deadbolt locks for almost a year before his death. He was beaten badly in his head because he refused to eat, and later died due to the blunt force trauma to his head.
    4.The death penalty should be given to murderers, rapists, and child molesters.If DNA proves that the suspect did the crime they should get the death penalty, that 13 year old little boy did not deserve to get beaten or murdered and his father and stepmother should get beaten and locked in a cage for a year and then beaten to death.

    3). that 13 year old boy waz treat veary poorly and abused alot specilly if u waz lock in a fold up dog cage for an year and beat and when waz killed had intranl bleeding and force drama to the head i think that dad should get the death plentlay for sure he should be lock away for gudd

    4). i have read both article and i do belive in death penalty specally on the indaina man whom lock his 13 year old boy in cage he should get death but i think there should be deat row but really there should be death row but than a gain i thing there should be no death row cause a man should say in jail for life and wast it but again if u just stay alive they still have there life its shoul be taken so i say death row should be allow

  12. Over 200 prisoners have benn exonerated since 1989 by DNA evidence.Almost all of them where incarcerated for murder or rape.

    Since June of 2009,46 states in the U.S. have passed laws that allow inmates to get DNA tests.Many prosecutors try to get around this law though.

    The 13 year old boy was treated very badly.His father kept him locked in a dog cage for more than a year before he died.

    I do not believe in the death penalty.I don't believe in it because its not right to kill someone else.

  13. In 1989 200 prisoners have been exonerated by DNA evidence.Almost all the prisoners were incarcerated for murder or rape. In June 2009 46 states passed laws that allowed inmates to get DNA tests. In many jurisdictions, protestors have been using new argument to get around the intent of those laws, paricularly in cases with multiple defendants. The 13 year old boy was treated just like a dog. His dad locked him in a cage with 7 padlocks, and regally beat the 13 year old boy. NO, I don't Believe in the death penalty because if this man can kill his son or a man can rape a women or child the don't deserve to live yea but then again being in jail they aint got no life either let god deal with them thats what hes there for........

  14. ?1. More then 200 prisoners have been exonerated since 1989 by DNA evidence. ?2. As of June 2009, 46 states have passed laws to enable prison inmates to get DNA tests. ?3.13 yr old Christan Choate was neglected, beat and under the performance of a caged dog before he was murdered. ?4. I believe that under circumstances the Death penalty should be necessary, depending of accurate evidence and criminal pleas. However also there should be other options for certain crimes (good example from peers): in need of insanity claim justice, such as crime of murder happens out of jealousy, spite and revenge from harassment at young age of 11, life n prison or institute maybe the right option for certain cases, but so should death penalty.
