Send him to Boston and I'll buy the Rolling Stone mag again.

He's hardly the worst. There's no prison sex involved. If you're in prison for life anyway, would you rather be mercifully ended or used like a blow-up doll?

You have to wonder why they didn't place this inmate in a single cell given his history.

No, YOU have to wonder what kind of monster you are to want to torture a man for decades. There is no crime dark enough to warrant solitary confinement for more than a short time. Long, long before that point is reached, you should kill the one doing the crimes.

This guy? He's murdered his family. Kill him for that and let's move on. That's 3 hots and an empty cot extra.

Same with most prisoners, really. The light offenses can be pardoned and expunged and the monsters can easily be killed. That would leave us with about 40% of the inmate pop left but the entire budget to help them with.

Meh. After the second time you kill someone ya gotta think, what's the big deal? MORE jail?

He killed a child sex offender before he could be released from prison and out into the public again. Isn't this what prison is good for?

Normally, I don't trust cops or the system, but the deader here seems well and truly vetted by all sources to be the perp.

Good for the guy who killed him. Now we hang him nice and quickly, as a reward. In fact, he's done so good, for desert in his last meal, we should give him barbiturate puddin'. As much as he wants.

"He confessed to first-degree murder, in a lot of states that's the death penalty," Harold Curry, the victim's 81 year-old father, said in a phone interview Wednesday from Stewartville, Minn.
"Minnesota ain't got the death penalty. And now that (expletive) has killed another person."


Sorry folks, but those opposed to the death penalty got their way.

We'll just have to accept lifers killing/raping/mutilating both guards and prisoners as the cost of moral smugness.

Just think, the cell mate that got murdered by the multi murderer that should have been executed a long time ago was probably in for something minor like pot possession.

Abacus9: Oh, shut up


You shut up. America's legal system is horrific. We have less prisoners per capita than nobody. Land of the free my ass. It's cowards with votes and unscrupulous assholes with quills passing useless legislation against things that need no regulation.

Let EVERYONE in on a drug related offense go today. Decriminalize marijuana and other non-refined plant based narcotics to the same status as tomatoes and other crops. Make DWI all inclusive, regardless of the intoxicant. Crack and PCP still illegal, huge rosters of cops freed up to work on real crimes. Lots of crowding in jails gone. Boom, war on drugs won.

Next up, kill the monsters. Serial killers, spree killers, people who've killed their cellmates: All of 'em do the hemp fandango. Boom. The world's a safer place. Or, better yet, we give them the option to kill themselves. Any time of the day or night they can check out if they feel guilty and pass and psych evaluation. Give them a dozen options from barbiturate puddin' to an old fashioned axeman complete with gunt and hood.

100% correct.

 Let EVERYONE in on a drug related offense go today. Decriminalize marijuana and other non-refined plant based narcotics to the same status as tomatoes and other crops. Make DWI all inclusive, regardless of the intoxicant. Crack and PCP still illegal, huge rosters of cops freed up to work on real crimes.

You contradict yourself. DWI is a drug-related offense. And why should plant-based narcotics be given tomato status? There are plenty of good and legal synthetic drugs out there made in laboratories, many life-saving, that don't affect motor skills at all. This sounds like a personal bias you have.

Next up, kill the monsters. Serial killers, spree killers, people who've killed their cellmates: All of 'em do the hemp fandango. Boom. The world's a safer place.

A safer place for whom? I prefer living in a society that doesn't decide to just point the finger at someone declaring them a monster unfit to live, and kill them willy-nilly. We have a justice system for that, and in this case it didn't persue the death penalty. We'd be less safe in a society where the state could murder people without trial.

So do I.

But having been wrongfully arrested and seeing the system from that side, I'm more than content to just empty low and mid security prisons and neuter the powers of cops and prosecutors. Prison is supposed to be about reform, not warehousing. Trials are supposed to be about guilt or innocence, not just a game to see who can get the most people into jail. But that's what's happened.

And for the record, we don't have a justice system. We have a legal system.

Why is this guy still breathing?

Meanwhile, FTFA:
Curry's relatives filed a lawsuit against Minnesota prison officials, contending that no reasonable official would allow a "known psychopath" who had threatened to commit mass murder to work alone with another inmate in an unsupervised area with access to weapons. The family lost the lawsuit.

Maybe Curry should have thought about that BEFORE he committed crimes that would cause him to be imprisoned.

Why do we feed and house these people and give them medical care when there's people who don't commit crimes living under freeway overpasses?  Shouldn't we have a "let's throw the complete f*ckups away" day?

One murder, crime of passion/extreme circumstance:  20 years.
Multiple murders, rape, torture, kidnapping, child molestation (and I don't mean a 19 year old farking a 16 year old), other heinous crimes that indicate an evil and depraved mind:  Death.

If someone is so useless to the planet that we never want them to EVER again be able to walk free, just kill them.  Everyone gets closure, done deal.  Give them 5 years to fight their case, two appeals maximum, and if necessary, increase judicial budgets to make certain that they have access to the court system.  Set up a series of courts designed strictly to handle death penalty cases, with experienced judiciaries in the field.

It is MUCH more likely that a murderer will kill again than it is that an innocent person will be executed.  The math is simple:  choose the solution that has the lowest loss of life.

Method of execution?  Something instant and painless, like a C4 helmet. Let them choose if they want to be conscious or not during the explosion.

Let the whiners whine about it.  Mock them for the pussies they are.  There are 7 billion people on this rock, we can't farking allow vicious, evil bastards to walk around and prey on the rest of us.

And the argument that "nothing of value was lost" is retarded.  If it was of no value to begin with, then we should have executed them long ago.  If someone is in prison, and deserves to live, then we should rehabilitate them (actually rehabilitate them, not just throw them in a concrete box with other assholes and see what happens), and they should have a chance for a future.  If they suck so badly that they don't deserve that chance, then just do away with them and move on.

I agree totally. But this guy wasn't falsely imprisoned I assume, since he killed at least five people, including one former cellmate IIRC. And it wasn't some minor offense or anything. While the system should definitely be reformed, that doesn't mean we can just ignore the system as is and declare anarchy. We have to live by the rules we have until we can properly change them.

And for the record, we don't have a justice system. We have a legal system.

Whatever, dude. It's not delivery, it's DiGiorno's.
