So he had a gun, ran a business with no government regulation and probably didn't pay taxes, an IQ of 61, and strong religious leanings. And the Tea Party wasn't involved?

The odds of recieving capital punishment in Texas decrease greatly if you don't kill anyone. They really, really don't like that.

Alternately, mistakes are made, which flies in the face of justice.

Fortunately, it seems they're all born again FSM worshipers by the end, so they get to live in the sky with 40 virgins or some shiat.

monoski: NiceBeaver: The answer seems easy enough, place a cap on the number of years a prisoner has to run the course of appeals and live on death row.

The answer is not that easy when you have cases being thrown out 20 and 30 years later due to prosecutorial misconduct and improved science to show there is no way the person could have committed the crime


People opposed to the DP want to pretend that this is some sort of widespread tragedy happening with every other scumbag on death row. That's simply not the truth. And for those who were later found to be completely innocent, with absolutely zero percent chance they committed the crime, there is a decent chance they were involved or otherwise a criminal.

No matter the system, there is no perfect answer, and there will always be the outlier who simply gets screwed.

Genevieve Marie: rocky_howard: slayer199: Meh, IQ of 61 or not, I'm not in favor of the death penalty as a punishment for a number of reasons.

1. Putting one innocent person to death negates the death penalty (right now at a 140, but that doesn't help someone like Cameron Todd Willingham. You can't undo the death penalty.
2. It costs more than life in prison.
3. It has no effect as a deterrent.

So while people may yammer on that so and so deserved it...and there are people that DO deserve it, it's just not worth the cost both financially and as a society.

How exactly?

Some years in death row + execution Vs 20-30 years if note more in prison.

Seriously, I want to know.

And I know many people spend more than a decade imprisoned before being killed. Like this guy. Which I find dumb.

You know the reason people have to spend that much time before they're executed is because they have to be given a chance to exhaust the appeals process completely- because once someone's dead, there's no righting a mistake.

That's an incredibly expensive, long process. The administration costs on it are insane. Life in prison is far, far cheaper.


Having them shanked before their first appeal is even cheaper.

doyner: thespindrifter: I've said it before and I'll say it again:

God didn't institute the death penalty for murder just as an act of justice, but also to protect the murderers from the evil, unforgiving, vengeful assholes left behind who think that their unrepentant hate and bitterness can be justified. Death sends the murderer to face the only truly good judge there is, and spares them from the horrors of having to live in the prisons of this world.

Thanks for injecting your superstitions into public policy.


Spent much time in prisons lately? Ever study the history of "corrections" over the course of the past 6,000+ years of recorded human history? I have done both, and let me tell you, even if you don't believe in God or gods or whatever, there can be no denying that in so many cases, death is almost preferable to having to spend the rest of your life as a tortured soul haunted by the cruelty of "good" people. Men and women commit suicide in prison for a reason, and it isn't just because we make it a living hell. Some times the self-release from the guilt is the only real peace these people will ever have. My thing is, we better be real sure the person is guilty before we pass that on to them by Government Decree.

I would offer to you that your slur against my beliefs aside, most people of faith at least in theory believe in forgiveness and redemption; you sure as hell can't say the same for a godless State, and pretty much every religion-free government that has ever existed has been rather heavy-handed on the death penalty, mass imprisonments for petty offenses, and general disregard for human rights. *Atheists have been responsible for the bulk of all mass murder in the 20th and 21st centuries, and before you drag out that tired old lie about religions causing wars and crusades and other bullshiat to that effect, a close examination of history can only attribute approximately 7 - 11% of all known wars to actual religious causes, meaning that the other nine out of ten wars were directly attributable to human greed and other natural, secular evils of Men.

(*See " Encyclopedia of Wars - 3 Volume of Set (Fact on File Library of World History) by Phillips & Axlerod" for statistical, factual numbers of the reasons for war. Fun fact-- the bulk of resource wars had more to do with access to, and control of, the salt trade, than almost any other factor.)

Every state has something.

Texas justice is even handed and broad, but at least they don't charge state income tax and their gun laws are fair.

California and Illinois are corrupt entitlement states, but at least their liberal center cities have decent food places.

South Carolina steriled women who weren't to standard, and our breeding programs inspired Adolf Hitler.

Florida is filled with the sorts of morons that Texas executes.

daysofinspiration: But lower courts agreed with state attorneys, who argued that Wilson's claim was based on a single possibly faulty test and that his mental impairment claim wasn't supported by other tests and assessments over the years.


Except, of course, for the a court-appointed neuropsychologist, who thought he was impaired.
