As Christopher Titus suggested, we should stop calling it the death penalty.

Instead, think of it as a really really late term abortion.

Weaver95: if you are pro-life, you must also be against the death penalty.  it's all inclusive - either all life is sacred or its not.  if you don't stand up and save the lives of murdering bastards then....you aren't pro-life anymore.  sorry folks but thems the rules.

if you're pro-choice, then you may proceed.  kill 'em dead and down a six pack for a job well done.


Cradle to grave.  Womb to cradle.  The new rules don't include bootstraps, but you can find them on sale at Wal-mart for $9.

ambassador_ahab: Y'all are missing the point, which is that subby's headline implies that everyone in Georgia is farking retarded.


Forgive me. I'm from South Carolina. Georgia is our Cambridge. Their Lucasian Chair is some booth at a Chik-Fil-A in Carrollton.

StrangeQ: And what good does keeping him around do for society as a whole?  It's not like he's going to care after he's dead.


Well heck, then we might as well execute all of the retarded, as well as the severely physically disabled, and those elderly farkers who won't get a job.

In fairness, I'm sure your comment sounds more intelligent in the original German.

If you're mentally capable of realizing you're incapable of being executed, you're mentally capable of being executed.

Philip Francis Queeg: sethen320: Philip Francis Queeg: sethen320: No, its a waste of resources to maintain an individual who is useless to the world.

So we should execute everyone with profound developmental disabilities and those who become seriously disabled?

If they enjoy murdering, then yes.

And if they are just "useless to the world" as you stated?


Never mind. You know what I meant. Stop trying to look so clever.

Not to start a debate, but i think there is room to differentiate "innocent" life, and someone who has demonstrated that they are unable to be a part of functional society.

i'm sorry but...no.  if you are pro-life, then ALL LIFE IS SACRED.  period.  the premise of the pro-life ideology is that we don't get to pick and choose who gets to live or die, that's up to God.  ALL life is sacred, even the lives of bottom feeding scum sucking murderers locked in a cage.  if it's morally wrong to pick and choose which fetus gets born, then it's equally wrong to pick and choose which murdering bastard gets to die.  lock 'em up?  sure.  but you can't kill 'em and still be pro-life.

pro-life is all inclusive and absolutist.  you CANNOT pick and choose - you are either pro-life or not.  thems the rules.  it's also a very difficult philosophy to follow and I have a lot of respect for people who accept it's tenets and follow them....ALL of them.


Except that pro-life and pro-choice are not the point of the discussion that should be centering around this man and his pending execution. That is a separate, semi-related dialogue that you are introducing here for your own reasons. I'm pretty sure you're massively misrepresenting it as well. It doesn't take a genius to see the difference between being pro-life when it comes to an unborn child, and supporting the  execution of someone who has proven they have no regard for life themselves.

And on the subject of the actual topic at hand, what is society supposed to do with this man? He's proven that he will kill, more than once. He either doesn't understand that he shouldn't kill people, or he doesn't care. No matter how you slice that, he is not someone who can be allowed to be a part of society. Do you keep him locked up for the rest of his natural life with no chance of parole? In solitary confinement, no less, since I doubt they're going to give him another cell mate at this point. That doesn't seem any more humane.

Let me see if I get this.  SOME pro-life people have made rather inept arguments for their stance and so ALL pro-life people must be restricted to exactly, exclusively, and only the part of the argument you've latched onto.  And you've chosen to share this _very_special_ perspective in a thread about somebody who was often beat on the head for being slow.  Very clever of you.

false dichotomy is false

Please explain how being pro life and pro death are not mutually exclusive.


First, the terms don't equate, but you know that.  Secondly, the more common pro-life belief is that everyone's life is his/her own and the end of that life can only be sanctioned by that person.  This sanctioning may come in many forms, one of which is committing a crime where the death penalty may be applied.

Being pro-life (generally) indicates that one thinks of a fetus as being a human person from some moment between conception and birth and believes that person should enjoy the same protection of the law that those of us who've already been born enjoy. That person's life should be protected until they do something that warrants lifting that protection, like violating the protection of another person.

In other words, you have the right to life until you forfeit that right through your own heinous actions.

Note that these are not necessarily what I believe, but I've lived around this mindset long enough to tell you it's not unreasoned by the people who hold it, and it's a deeply held set of beliefs.

Warren Hill grew up in rural Georgia with an IQ of 70.

This explains why Jimmy Carter is going to bat for him. He obviously is one of the few who voted fro JC to be re-elected.

indarwinsshadow: Hmmm.

Last week farkers were up in arms because IQ tests weren't a real evaluation of intelligence.

This week, some of you are upset because IQ is now an accurate measure of intelligence.

Conservatives -- especially religious ones -- don't apply logic to any of their beliefs.

Dagnabbit, they're against abortions because life is sacred, but they're for the death penalty because POTATO!!!

So, you're saying it's contradictory to want to spare the innocent and condemn the guilty?

No, it's not.  Not even close.  You're assigning that value to the argument, and it's not the premise at all.  Innocence of the life, particularly related to children, is critical to their viewpoint.

Poor bastard.

You know, if his family hadn't TBI'd or CTE'd him (whatever we're calling it now) in the first place, maybe he would have been "slow, reliable Warren" instead of "slow, prone-to-fits-of-murder Warren."

I'm okay with taking him out, but only if his mom and grandpa go too.

Another mentally-ill person being greased by a state that doesn't care how poorly a citizen develops as long as he doesn't go around killing people.

Don't be mentally ill in Georgia (or Arizona) or you'll do hard time for being sick. Or the state will just murder you and call it justice.

Then Jesus said, "Leave the children alone, and don't try to keep them from coming to Me, because the kingdom of heaven is made up of people like this.*"
