Great Headline!

Their parents must be proud, these kids are becoming asshats in their image.

Does Washington state have the death penalty?

/not trying start a debate, just want to know

For those of you who haven't read the article, said suburban high schoolers are heroes.

"Snohomish County Sheriff's deputies found the body in a grave in a gravel parking lot behind the Tulalip Casino."


So will the indians who own that casino respect his grave as a surburban boy's sacred burial site ?

If the boys were smart they would have just let the kid be tried as an adult and put in jail. Its no secret that they hate rapists and child molesters in prison, so he would have probably gotten the same fate.

Also, I agree, great headline
 
2003-08-29 04:49:34 PM
BELIEVED to have raped.
We don't need vigilantes everywhere.
 
2003-08-29 04:49:49 PM
Their actions match some Farkers comments on the story on the German fathers the other day. Least Fark can't get blamed for putting the idea in their head according to the timeline.
 
2003-08-29 04:50:14 PM
Yes, entrekken, you can choose between the shot or the rope here.
 
2003-08-29 04:50:18 PM
For those of you who haven't read the article, said suburban high schoolers are heroes.

Why? Because they believed he raped a girl? Vigilante justice is not heroic. There's a legal system in place to deal with rapists.
 
2003-08-29 04:50:39 PM
entrekken: yes, WA state does have the death penalty, but the suspects in the case are minors so it will be a bit more convoluted.

In fact, WA state actually has death by hanging as an option. Some guy actually chose this a few years back and it was carried out, but the guy's name escapes me.
 
2003-08-29 04:51:33 PM
Yes, Washington State has the death penalty.
 
2003-08-29 04:51:49 PM
Great Headline
Oh, and thanx nanowerx and ToughNutToCrack, you can send donations to my paypal account.
 
2003-08-29 04:52:50 PM
The girl did not want to pursue charges, so this guy would not have gone to court or jail, guilty or not.
 
2003-08-29 04:53:14 PM
Heroes, maybe. If this is really a case where the corrupt local police chief pressured the girl into withdrawing her rape charge against his son, then yes. Justice done, but with a price.
 
2003-08-29 04:53:32 PM
the last time someone was hung in the u.s. was in deleware in 1996.

they still have a gallows too. the guy's name was Billy Bailey.
 
2003-08-29 04:54:06 PM
excuse me --

"hanged"
 
2003-08-29 04:54:11 PM
Yes, WA state does have the death penalty. I believe it's still by hanging. I recall one inmate on death row ballooned in weight up to around 400 pounds so he could avoid having his head ripped off when the platform dropped out from under him.

If memory serves correctly, Wesley Allan Dodd (sp?) was the last inmate executed in the state of WA after waiving all of his appeals to have his execution carried out as soon as possible. His reasoning was that he knew that he was a threat to society and would repeat his crimes if he were released.

/end of ramble
 
2003-08-29 04:55:45 PM
well why didn't she want to press charges? Seems like she didn't care enough to do that...let alone have the guy killed.


...keep in mind I know that the girl might have been scared of the guy or something but still, killing him seems like a bit much.
 
2003-08-29 04:56:31 PM
Cheers on the headline.
 
2003-08-29 04:56:36 PM
just being fat will not get you out of being hanged.

they take your weight, divide it into 1260 and then drop you that many feet to break your neck.

such a calculation produces exactly 1260 foot pounds of torque.

Rise my minions, RISE!!!
 
2003-08-29 04:57:42 PM
I've had a girlfriend that cheated on me say that the dude raped her.... I could tell the little slut was lying too....


I wouldnt be suprised if this happened in this case... If it was rape, I bet it was one of those "I was too drunk so he raped me" arguments....

I hope she feels like shiat.... Unless he reall did rape her... then I hope she'll be ok one day after all this shiat... Imagine the guilt.

Damn, my skinny ass would have to be dropped 9 feet. I guess I better rethink my indoor suicide plans.

How would a 400 pound body help to avoid having your head ripped off in a hanging? Seems like the opposite would be true.
 
2003-08-29 04:59:52 PM
adam_cole: As others have pointed out, the guy was the son of the local police sergeant.

2003-08-29 04:58:43 PM Epsilon:

I remember when this one was going on. The guy was trying to argue that if he was decapitated, it would constitute cruel and unusual punishment. Personally, I would rather have my head ripped off than slowly choke to death on a rope.
 
2003-08-29 05:01:33 PM
Another football-playing date-rapist bites the dust. Big deal.
 
2003-08-29 05:01:59 PM
She likely made up the charge to deflect her boyfriends anger over her screwing around whoreville.

if they drop you too far, the force of your body falling will exceed the over muscular and skeletal strength of your body -- the result is complete decaptitation.

such a death would be considered cruel and unusual, and therefore be unconstitutional

Heroes, maybe. If this is really a case where the corrupt local police chief pressured the girl into withdrawing her rape charge against his son, then yes. Justice done, but with a price.

If I read the article correctly, the murdered teen wasn't the son of the sergeant, the 17-year-old accused of the murder is.

So it was either the sergeant's son's girlfriend who dropped the charges or the sergeant's son's friend's girlfriend.

The police had no reason to talk the girl out of pressing charges, because there was no conflict of interest.
 
2003-08-29 05:02:28 PM
hmmm. ..too bad with rape we will never know the truth.

But if he did rape her, then these kids should get that light no-record type of punishment.
 
2003-08-29 05:04:12 PM
Epsilon: 280 of those pounds were in his neck, much like a football player.

If memory serves, didn't he end up dying by falling down the stairs in prison? Either that or he went unconscious from pneumonia or something like the same.

Won't you hang low, Bill Bailey...

hey -- that reminds me of a great joke !

q : how many prison guards does it take to push a troublesome prisoner down three flights of stairs ?

If I remember correctly, there was this nice little winery in Snohomish.
 
2003-08-29 05:08:05 PM
Oh come on, the girl like the studly football player, hooked up with him, farked his brains out, then the boyfriend found out. She lies to the boyfriend, who goes and gets his posse, okay so it is only one guy, and proceeds to kill this person.

Regardless of what happened, the fact that it didn't happen to these two teens shows little value of human life to these two asshats. Shoot em up with the juice, they lost any right to there life by taking anothers.....

I blame:
[1] Video Games

[3] Clinton
[4] Bush
[5] Music
[6] The Internet
[7] Madonna

Pick one or more.
 
2003-08-29 05:08:48 PM
Oh! You're farking right, shigelojoe! I just assumed that the son of local constable would be a rapist. I'm chagrined.
 
2003-08-29 05:08:55 PM
Unrelated Meanderings :

A) My Cousin went to that high school.
B) Of course one of the kiiler's father was a cop
C) The kid at our high sckol got killed for drug debts, the perp's doing it took a time out to get pop at the local 7-11...
D) She decided to drop the charges, so, they are vigilanties of their own ego?

Banned check

I'm getting the feeling I've been banned. Anyone who can read this please feel free to respond, so I know I haven't been banned, I'm just being ignored.

waaaaaaah !

Thanx cunning, I'll go crawl back into my hole now.

Actually, Roosevelt students would prolly be considered urban youth, rather than suburban youth, by Seattle standards anyway.
Whatever.
 
2003-08-29 05:13:21 PM
Three asshats go down in flames.

I see no problem.
 
2003-08-29 05:13:22 PM
Trystopheles, nice headline. I have a CD for you. Give me an email if you want it. (alanp (at) rdwarf.com)

Back on topic: Sounds like the dead kid was a real piece of work. Football star, near-rape (she filed a police report but refused to press charges?)

Is it just coincidence that HS and College football players have a generally bad reputation for forced sex?
 
2003-08-29 05:15:08 PM
When you hang a man, you hang 'em high.

One more sign America is FUBAR.

Here's to letting the Army take over the public schools. We could do a lot worse at this point.
 
2003-08-29 05:17:57 PM
Don't feel too bad trystopheles, I read all your posts.
