    Like I said before, I am with you on the cut and dry ones such as this prisoner killing the guard. It's the not so cut and dry ones I'm concerned about.

    We can agree on that.

    My point was, for every innocent person in prison, we can clearly identify 10, 20 or 30 who did it, and really and truly did it.

    Can we start with them? :cool:

    :wavey:

    Won't work. The sheets he gets are made of paper and tear very easily.

    It's cruel and unusual punishment to keep him there any longer.

    I will contract out to the federal prison system to dispose of said prisoner for a mere $50, to cover the cost of running the backhoe, one box of shells, and cleaning supplies.

    I agree, but you got to remember that 27 yrs in prison is a lot more $$$$ to the system, whether it be state or federal (or both) than a quick(er) death row sentence. The prison industrial complex is a HUGE money maker for the states/feds/shareholders that are involved...:steamed:

    I agree we have to be very careful when handing out the death penalty. However, if an inmate kills a guard in prison there should be very very little doubt who did it. In cases where we have overwhelming evidence we have a duty to both God and our society to put these people to death. Executing murderers is one of the few essential functions of government and I'm really not concerned with what it costs. We waste billions of dollars every year on useless programs and pork; I will gladly pay my share to end the life of one of these predators.

    Looks like the blogs are taking off. I'm amazed all his supporters (then again, Manson has thousands.)

    I am grateful that some folks share my perspective. I do not embrace violence, or death, but I know that there are some among us who are not fit to live. It is my opinion that this specimen falls squarely within that category.

    You don't.

    Humans aren't perfect, they make mistakes sometimes. There it is.

    You do the best you can and go on with yourself. That's why we say a prayer for the person being put to death.

    I'm not about to pay for the care of every person on death row, for life, just because there may be a wronged person among them. What you get if you do that, is what we have now. No room for the folks who actually should be there, and the prisons bursting at the seams.


    Tough noogies.

    If I went through a trial, brought all the witnesses I could, showed all the evidence I could, and stated my innocence every time I opened my mouth.......and couldn't convince the people that I was indeed innocent, allowing me to live the rest of my life in prison wouldn't be any sort of "reprieve" for me. People make mistakes, so be it. It seems every non death penalty person wants to make up for the fact that we make mistakes. They seem to want to do it the world over, try to make up for the fact that men are fallible.


    In my opinion, we were made fallible and that's what we are. We won't be judged any harsher for it. We do the best we can, then act. That's what we will be judged on IMO, what we actually do and what our intent is when we do it.

    There's no illusion of being correct all the time. Is it possible that I may be in such a situation? Of course there is, anythings possible. But is it likely? Not on your life. The life I lead is proof and doesn't lend itself to such happenings. That is what others should take away from the entire event. Don't live in such a way to put ones self in such situations. If they do, don't forget about Mans fallibility.

    Frontal lobotomy.Let him sit in a quiet corner and drool on himself if he must live.Why let muderers live in a prison at our expense?Where is the deterrent in that?They should be given the same courtesy they gave their victims.


    Otherwise hang the trash.

    how do you think the family of the officer feels about the guy rotting away and being put to death ..

    i see it as there is a lot more punishment in being confined like that than there is being put to sleep nicely in a chair ,

    although there is probably a point where his mind will snap on him from the non contact and no anything happening in his life ..

    The only reason he has not been put to the chair a long time ago is that the ACLU/NAMBLA those on the Left have not been able to release him yet, they dont want to loose a voter:crying:

    Put him to sleep may years ago no point in him living a day past what he did

    I'm all broken up about this scumbag. I agree with him that killing him is doing him a favor.
