Legal In October 2006, Hans Reiser, creator of the ReiserFS filesystem, was arrested under the suspicion of the murder of his wife, Nina, who had disappeared off the face of the earth after dropping their two children off at Hans' home. The two were divorced, and fighting a legal battle over ownership of the Namesys company and the custody of their children. Even though the body was never found, he has been declared guilty of first degree murder.

No, my point was that many people think the current system is too rigorous already. They'd like it to be easier to carry out the death penalty, which is inevitably going to lead to more mistakes, not fewer.


You are probably referring to States. In Canada, where I live, unfortunately there is no death penalty at all, hence my whole argument that it should be available as an option for extreme cases.

...but that it should be put to very limited use.


Agreed.
