    I will just conclude that this criminal even if caught but the freedom to vote is permitted, what a shameful act. Thats why even small children laugh when told of bill 10. I wish to inform all lawyers to be careful not to me but to God the creator who can’t permit you to allow inmates to vote. Even them are not better people thats why they can’t think proper but just used wrongly.

    My friend to tell you the truth, their is no fire 🔥 without smoke thats why we should be careful with the friendship we have nomatter how we think that it’s easy to make friendships we are just mistaken, its hard to find real friends but some people think freindships is easy. Wrong partners may put you and I in trouble if we aren’t careful. All inmates are wrong nomatter how you defend them, thats why we normally regrate in the end. Jesus was put due to majority needing fevour from people which was wrong but when we analyse some inmates you will find out they may regrate being at the site or friendship they were involved in.

    Even these fights we involve in its so shameful, you go to a bar, tavern etc as a normal parteker but suddenly found guilty then you claim to be innocent how,we need those people who are just removed from their homes and taken to court or jail without a thing,that’s why I’m saying inmates are wrong persons if you don’t understand why read the bible much you will find that it was just Jesus alone who has been innocent that’s so

    Too bad to our friend who passed away , but let the the the person who did that should be given a death sentence.

    Its maybe normal just staying in prison but reasonable persons wouldn’t stay their life time in prison instead death is rather than being kept imaging how and why, but the question is raised and their was a big debate on whether death penalty is necessary or not,and is it fair or which is better to keeping somone for life untill his life age or terminating his or her well chair age , sometimes it nice to do or be faithful to God whereby you do right in the eyes of God rather than in human eyes. This has been very difficult for humans especially blacks,but whites have done their part welmingly. But it’s up to you and me to decide whether God exists or not by doing the right things in his eyes not in the eyes of your fellow countrymen.
