How the hell did this go green without a misleading Bjork headline?  Submitter, I am disappointed.

"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.

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.

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?

He killed a child molester and a rapist/murderer...should get a few years off his sentence or a couple freebies at the prison store.  If he keeps this up, he may solve the overcrowding problem by himself.

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?

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.

doglover: Bathia_Mapes: 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.


Oh, shut up doglover.

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?
