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?

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.

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.

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.

doglover: 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.


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.

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.

The problem is proving someone guilty. It's very difficult to prove that someone is guilty without some doubt. A person's life depends on that jury decision, and the jury could always be wrong. That's why many (though not all) people are against the death penalty. I'm not, but it should be absolutely proven that someone is guilty before the state or anyone else should be allowed to take their life.

I'm with ya, which is why I say a trial by jury, two appeals, and experienced capital crime judiciaries should be employed.  For sure, let's get it right, to the best degree we can.  Can we guarantee that NO innocent will EVER be condemned?  Nope.  But we can guarantee that the guy being executed can never again harm another human being.  And we can also spend a hell of a lot less money on incarceration, lawyers, etc.

And yeah, I know it costs a bazillion dollars to execute someone.  But that's only because our current system requires a hand-written letter from God on gold parchment to finally execute someone.  Streamline the process, while simultaneously creating the best review system we can.

Oh, and make the penalty for falsely testifying against someone in a capital case death.  For anyone, cops and government officials included.  Talk about a system that polices itself...if someone goes before a judge and is willing to put THEIR life on the line to testify against someone, you can bet your ass they are a whole lot less likely to lie, or to frame someone.

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.


Gotta put em down when they're rabid...

Pretty much. Torture, murder and rape are bad...unless they're happening in prison, in which case it's hysterical and/or just desserts or alternatively "why should I care?"

However, if the prisoner is someone we LIKE (for instance if the dead man was Pfc. Manning) then we'd be back to TORCHER IS BAD!  RAPE IS BAD! WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING?!?!

Occam's Nailfile: 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.


How about a C4 supository?

I didn't really mean you, I was referring to all the tough guys in the thread who think it's acceptable for prisoners to rape and kill each other because "screw them they're bad guys." - That's why we have a system, to handle things so we don't need vigilantes. Don't like the system, change it. That's one thing Americans seem to have forgotten, it's that these things aren't set in stone. But "rules are rules, they can't evar change!"

The problem I have here is that the suspect in this prison murder has already killed another inmate previously, when he was still in a Montana prison. Seems to me that if you're convicted of killing another inmate, you should be segregated away from other inmates for the rest of your stay in prison, however long that may be. Let them have conversational contact in the exercise yard, as long as they are in individual, fenced-off areas (still able to communicate, not able to physically contact each other), but otherwise they would have no contact with fellow inmates. The only contact with staff would be controlled, never one-on-one, and the subject would be shackled during any transport.

In short, a sort of quasi-solitary, only without the soul-crushing lack of human contact involved. To leave these inmate killers in the general population is only asking for them to kill again. I mean, what do they have to lose?

Kitzhaber has said no inmate will be put to death as long as he's governor.

I think I watched that movie before bed 20 outta 30 nights at one point. It doesn't get enough love.


I had to IMDB this to figure out that the movie is "Let's Go to Prison".  The cast looks great so I'm going to watch it soon.
 
2013-08-22 08:21:44 AM  
I don't see a reason to segregate this guy, just be selective of who shares a cell with this guy.  The guy who sleeps with his daughter would be a start.

/Darrel Hammond would play this guy in the made for television movie.

Arnprior Joe: Oldiron_79: 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.

In prison He's killed a child molester and a rapist/murderer.  I'm not feeling too bad about either one.


Yeah, are we sure he isn't just doing what he can to pay back society?

Sobrrr: 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?


TFA said "sex offender", not CHILD sex offender.

Quite possibly a HUGE difference there.

IMHO, Dax Shepard is one of themost uderrated actors working. Idiocracy? Awesome. Let's go to jail? Awesome. Employee of the Month? Awesome. Hit and Run? Unbelievably awesom! (Tom Arnold was great in it too.)

Did anyone notice in "Let's Go To Jail" that Shepards costumes at the beginning were all costumes from different killers on film? The one that sticks out in my head was the mirrored sunglasses and army coat when he first got out of jail.

/now back to the "Let's kill all criminals"/"No, criminals deserve our love and hugs" thread

I had to use Google image search to find the reference.  There are people who actually watched that show?  Weird.  The IMDB comments amused me.  Idiot people.


I watched that show religiously. It was a fantastic show. I was a Chris/Toby shipper, big time.

I loved that movie! I accidentally came across it and thought it would be stupid, but it eventually captured my attention with that scene and I was so happy they ended up together in the free world. The last scene of them in their winery tasting room was awesome :D

I'd want to see the sex offender's case before passing judgement, given that courts now use the tag for some 17-y-o sexting pics of his junk to his GF.

If the victim did something like rape an 8-y-o, then okay.  We know he never got any treatment, so he'd most likely offend again, with another child scarred for life.

Kind of like the guy who bashed Dahmer to death.  No big loss.

Occam's Nailfile: Abacus9: The problem is proving someone guilty. It's very difficult to prove that someone is guilty without some doubt. A person's life depends on that jury decision, and the jury could always be wrong. That's why many (though not all) people are against the death penalty. I'm not, but it should be absolutely proven that someone is guilty before the state or anyone else should be allowed to take their life.

I'm with ya, which is why I say a trial by jury, two appeals, and experienced capital crime judiciaries should be employed.  For sure, let's get it right, to the best degree we can.  Can we guarantee that NO innocent will EVER be condemned?  Nope.  But we can guarantee that the guy being executed can never again harm another human being.  And we can also spend a hell of a lot less money on incarceration, lawyers, etc.

And yeah, I know it costs a bazillion dollars to execute someone.  But that's only because our current system requires a hand-written letter from God on gold parchment to finally execute someone.  Streamline the process, while simultaneously creating the best review system we can.


It's basically a bad idea to get your government efficient at killing your fellow citizens cheaply.

And your review system will have to be radically different than the one we have now, which only looks at the trial record, very narrowly, ignoring stuff outside the transcripts...like defense attorneys sleeping through trials.

i have to admit that i may be "one of those" that might joke about it, and say " he got what he deserves", but jesus h p christ, prison without violent rape is hardly a deterrent, in my humble opinion.

ok, maybe for me and most of you....but for a pretty large number of poor souls at the edges of survival and desperation....what do they have to lose?
is confinement worse than  being hungry and cold.
i don't think so.

do you think confinement is an adequate deterrent to violent crime like rape and murder?

In the sense that while they're in prison, it's a lot harder to commit crimes, especially in solitary.
