final statements of 279 white males and 231 nonwhite males executed in the United States between January 2000 and December 2011.

As far as Northern states go, you've got a sample size problem, and as a Hoosier I think you could probably include Southern Indiana as part of the South.  Throw in Southeast Ohio too.

If I'm ever executed I want my last words to be "Death is but a door. Time is but a window. I'll be back." Followed by maniacal laughter.

It's amazing on how many maps of American shiattiness the former borders of the Confederacy just pop right out at you.

The liberal media will tell you that slavery was the cause of the Civil War, but the REAL reason was American shiattiness.  Also tariffs... but mostly American shiattieness.

It is somewhat ironic that the primary conclusion of the study was "Yankee's are rude!"  As opposed to, you know, maybe Texas should ease up a tick on murdering its murderers.

I hadn't realized that Texas had such a high number of executions. Curiously enough, many of the exonerations after execution come from that state. Coincidence?

Great.  Except, you know, our system isn't supposed to work on the basis of "well, most of the ones we killed had it coming."  Just the opposite in fact.

That might be obscure for Fark, even though it ain't obscure in the least.

Also, this was definitely a worthwhile study and not a complete waste of whatever amount of time and money spent on it.

Who cares what people on the east coast think though? This isn't 1790.

Manhattan is the place where red clam chowder comes from - so....I  guess if they have opinions on clam chowder, we might care. In theory, anyway.

Just maintain your museums for us if you want to stay useful.

People in Texas, for the most part, grow up religious regardless of what they've done.  They know, too, that on their deathbed, they need to confess their "sins" to God and be forgiven and still get to go to Heaven.

They don't mean it.  They just hope God believes their lies.

Yep . Southern Indiana is pretty much the south .

Why so many white males?  Aren't we always told that the prison death row population is mostly non-white?

Did she simply throw away other demographic data or did she purposefully skew the results by selecting specific inmates based on backgrounds?   Did she choose 1000 but only kept the results of 510 because they agreed with her assertion?

Are the "results" simply because she manipulated the test subjects?

LAUGHTER OL are you the stupid individual? The majority of the individuals on the death row are White but the Blacks are highly over represented compared to the rate of the population of they. Further due to the statistical issues which have the placetaking in the United States Hispanics are usually lumped as the White people. Compared to their small rate in the population of they Blacks have the highest of overrepresentativeness.

In the other words methodology is not the strongest suit of you.

They are not "murdering" murderers. Murder and killing are 2 different things. Murder implies the victim didnt deserve it. Killing is more a term for someone who deserves it. They are killing murderers. And kudos to Texas for doing it.

I basically never knew anything about Indiana and my dad just moved there for a job. Now all I know is they have extremely farked up Medicaid. Like, really farking weird. And last I heard the governor wants to require a health savings account for people on Medicaid? Wtf? If I could afford a savings account of any kind, I wouldn't need Medicaid in the first place.

There are disproportionately fewer white males when compared to the ratios in the general population.

Yea I am. I'm an "eye for an eye" kind of person. Murderers should be executed in a manner similar to what they did. Rapists should be executed by being sodomized by a razor studded dildo until they bleed out.

That sounds about right. I know my grandma had major issues with Medicaid. This state just sucks in every possible way. I don't plan on staying here the rest of my life.
