    No, actually the "zi" is the second syllable of "National" as in "Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei". Germans have a tendency to abbreviate the start of a compound word only. Socialists are abbreviated to "Sozis".
    Fez Nazi bias confirmed.

    Why are we debating the meaning of nazi in a thread on murder sentencing ?
    Because bill discussions have a tendency to go off-track every so often.

    the thing is , the nazi approach , would be to hang the lot , but the proper way would to make sure they can reform , to make sure they can , if freed because they can do good in the world , also , this bill only removes the COMPULSORY life sentence for murder , in quite a lot of murder cases , a life sentence will still be given , this just gives the judge the option , if the person shows that they regret said crime and can prove that they will spend their sentence re-educating and reforming to make a positive difference in the world , and the minimum sentence for murder will still generally be around 14-16 years , which is still a pretty hefty sentence.



    Also , people who can prove to a judge that if given a non life sentence , that they can reform and re-educate , generally wouldn't want to , once they got out , start killing more people.
    Do you not think the question of whether someone is reformed should be made by people after the person has reformed like the dr instead of a judge guessing whether they can be?
