He is a rapist and a repeat murderer, for the most part I am anti death penalty because of the abuses but in this case he is like a mad dog so for both his and societal benefit it is best if he is put down

Yes. It keeps Fark's liberal contingent happy that a murderer gets to live out his life in prison. They are more worried about some asshole murderer than his victims.

His IQ isn't the real problem.  The real problem is he chose to be poor, and so he couldn't afford a crack legal team to keep him off of death row.

Don't choose to be poor in America.  It always works out badly.

Sigh. Has it occurred to you that anti-death penalty folks aren't actually concerned about a convicted killer's welfare, but the far greater impact of having irreversible, state-sanctioned killings in a system rife with either incompetence or malice?

Based on what I've read, I wouldn't piss on this guy if he were on fire. However, it's more important to me that we not deliver punishments that can't be corrected. For some reason folks like you always misconstrue that as being more concerned about the felon than his/her victims. Fark this guy, but fark our imperfect justice system even harder.

By all means, please continue telling me what liberals actually believe. Next thing you know I'll find out that women want abortion parties alongside Botox and Tupperware.

Looking at the guys list of felonies including rape and murder, I am not buying the "retarded" defense. I think you're just an asshole. So yes, fark you, and see you in hell. Just another lame ass attempt to get away from his due punishment.

How about you don't kidnap and murder a farking pregnant woman and then murder a cop so you don't have to afford a high powered legal team.

The death penalty is the only form of punishment that is irreversible. If it turns out a person serving life is innocent, they can still be released. There is no correcting a bad death penalty after the sentence is carried out.

Murder by the state is never ok under any circumstances.

I don't care if his IQ is 170, this evil needs to be stopped.  The state has turned this man from a criminal into a victim of attempted murder, and they're still actively trying to murder him.  It's a crime against him, and it's a crime against humanity.

I would not be at all opposed to shipping the prosecutors, judges, and jurors involved in every murder by the state off to The Hague to be charged with violation of human rights and crimes against humanity.

I'm not really pro-DP (or strongly anti), but I've worked with people on the lower IQ spectrum.  70 IQ (about the 3rd percentile... depending on the school that may be in regular classrooms not full-time special ed) is plenty to know "don't kill anyone" and what it means to kill someone.

/fine, we will let him go and he can come live with you on your money as he is unemployable.  Hope you dont have kids or a wife.


I didn't say he needs to be released immediately.  I suspect he would likely need be put into a secure mental health facility for the rest of his life, which is where he should have been placed to begin with after he was found incompetent to stand trial, which is what should have happened in the first place.

But murder by the state needs to be taken off the table.

People say that, but if you've already spent 20 years in prison, or died in prison, there's no giving that back. And conversely, people sometimes die of natural causes after many years on death row.

Unlike Fark's conservative contingent who are happy that liars like Bush and Cheney can set off a slaughter in the middle east and get away with it.
They are more worried some asshole murderers than their victims.
That's why taking cons serious is just a waste of time, no one needs to hear that kind of derp.

Why do people always cry "blood lust"?   The point of a death penalty is that once you decide that you don't want a person walking free in your society....ever, you have two choices.  One is the death penalty, the other is to house them like livestock until they die.  Even never being in prison, I think the first choice would be better.  Our court system has made either choice generally the latter by default.  Plus, corrupt police and prosecutors make either choice seem bad...

Society can't seem to win this one, but still I would not want the guy living with my family....just in case.

Oh? What will killing this guy do for his victims?

If spilling his blood results in their resurrection, then I'll rethink my stance on the death penalty.

Until then he can rot behind bars.

 if the cops had fatally shot him during the gunfight that led to his arrest, would that be ok? are you offended by all state sanctioned killing, or only really really deliberate killing?

The name "moron" was once applied to people with an IQ of 51-70, being superior in one degree to "imbecile" (IQ of 26-50) and superior in two degrees to "idiot" (IQ of 0-25).

Oddly enough, morons were always in high demand for industries like trucking, because they were far less likely to be bored or inattentive than people of normal intelligence, when faced with repetitive, mundane work.

But the relatively high degree of intelligence needed drive a truck also indicates that someone smarter than a moron, such as this individual, while a low C- on the intelligence scale, was likely quite able to harm or kill others and know what he was doing.

Well, he's been ducking the death penalty for 35 years for killing a pregnant woman and a cop, and at this point will probably die of natural causes. Sooo... retarded like a fox?
