This is the subject of my recent arguments against a certain retired judge, who said that the death penalty would scare off would-be criminals. I retorted that it was a lazy way of thinking about & looking into criminality. I will try to recall those arguments here.
2/10
Capital punishment has not been a deterrent to crime, whose root causes are in poverty, economic inequities, poor health care, inadequate public services, corrupt govt & justice system, bad educational system, poor human-rights record, & other unfreedoms as as understood
3/10
in political philosophy. Rich countries with excellent health care, high employment rate, topnotch educational system, least red tape, competent & honest govt officials, efficient public services & transport system, & good records of human-rights and press-freedom

The Daily 🕎 Mail reports on Minsk Parade
Belarus ‘bribes people’ to attend Victory Day parade! 🤣
President Alexander Lukashenko has rejected #lockdown, earlier claiming coronavirus is a 'mass psychosis' 😉

Belarus is considered by the Western media and politicians as a 'brutal regime'!
Meanwhile in the West our civil rights are trampled by the (semi-)police 😉
#Belarus has made a joke out of the Western politicians and their #Covid_19 fearporn.

During the Annual Address to #Russia's Federal Assembly president #Putin talked about the "Zircon" hypersonic missile:
_ range of 1000 km
_ can be launched from ships or submarines
_ its speed is Mach-9
The first submarine equipped with the "Poseidon" nuclear torpedo will be operational in spring - president Putin

1. Why is #Putin moving so fast to absorb #Belarus and finish off US allies in #Syria? Because two people know what Putin did during 2016: Putin and Mueller. Trump is too much a fool for Russians to have trusted him with everything. Just enough to expose him to major crimes.
2. Putin's SVR and GRU run signals intel all over DC. They are picking up @realDonaldTrump's minions on their cell phones and emails. They know Mueller is close. Also, I think GRU may have hacked the US DC CM/ECF system. I observed some very odd stuff on the docket on Thursday.
3. IMO cases that are coming will name many members of @SenateGOP @HouseGOP and impact three large law firms in DC & NY. The amount of signals traffic from all this would be huge. Many lawyers think email is secret. Even think their cell phones are safe. So silly.

Time did the right thing today by awarding #TimePersonOfTheYear to journalists. It inspired me to look back at how @UN_SPExperts have emphasized the epidemic of attacks on journalists/ism just this year
following are just some of the attacks on journalists we highlighted. a core fact is that most attacks, and most abuses of human rights, are not held accountable.
the @Time 'award' takes place against the backdrop of @realDonaldTrump's attacks on truth

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

#Russia-n mercenaries are now showing up everywhere in #Africa: one country in particular is the #CAR where Russians are also providing weapons. Also present in the #Niger Delta of #Nigeria actually helping the rebels that target the western oil companies. bit.ly/2KkU0OD
Fascinating story on how #Russia entered the #CAR. It was blocking a delivery of weapons from #France to #Bangui so #Macron told CAR President to go and convince Russia to unblock the sale. Instead Russia saw an opportunity to sell its own weapons to CAR. bit.ly/2rj8kyH
3 #Russian journalists killed in #CAR while filming #Wagner, the private military firm run by Evgeny #Prigozhin used especially in #Syria, part of #Putin's inner circle. Documentary was part of @tzurrealism, supported by Mikhail #Khodorkovsky.
