No death penalty in Massachusetts.

Is hope someone would put me to death at that point, if only to prove I'm not immortal.

Dr. Egon Spengler: Vigo the Carpathian. Born 1505, died 1610.
Dr. Peter Venkman: 105 years old? He hung in there, didn't he?
Dr. Rayomd Stantz: He didn't die of old age, either. He was poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn and quartered.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Ouch.
Winston Zeddmore: Guess he wasn't too popular at the end, huh?
Dr. Egon Spengler: No, not exactly a man of the people. Also known as Vigo the Cruel, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Despised, and Vigo the Unholy.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Wasn't he also Vigo the Butch?
Dr. Raymond Stantz: And dig this, there was a prophecy. Just before his head died, his last words were "Death is but a door, time is but a window: I'll be back."

jaylectricity: No death penalty in Massachusetts.


Ok, twenty years then, without the possibility of parole.


Reminded me of this sad story involving a former pro-wrestler.

She was probably doing her friend a favor and Kevorkianing her. Let it go.
 
2014-07-20 11:29:12 AM  
Maybe a mercy killing at that age?

Patton Oswalt would argue that she should get off scot-free for any murder she commits and that if she can make it another 18 she should be president.

Give her a suspended sentence. If she screws up one more time - Slam! into the joint.

Charging a 102 year old dementia pt is stupid.
This is clearly the nursing homes fault.

She was actually 98 when she committed the murder, so Patton's law wouldn't apply.  She did kill with her own two hands, though, so at least that part would hold.

I think if you make it to 100, you should get a freebie murder. Just one. Cause if you piss off someone that's 100+ years old enough that they actually kill you, you probably deserved it.

Thats what happened to Gagne? Sad indeed.

I don't know about Massachusetts but in Missouri we send the elderly to death row. Ray Copeland was the oldest person sentenced to death in America since the death penalty was reinstated. Unfortunately nature did him in for us. Ray and his wife Faye killed drifters in a cattle and check cashing scam.

FTFA:

Lundquist had a longstanding diagnosis of dementia and was ruled incompetent to stand trial. Since her indictment, she has been held at a state psychiatric hospital, while the murder charge against her remains active.

So the problem doesn't need fixing. What would they do anyway? I can't see MA putting a demented 102-year old woman in the general population, either in prison or in Boston.

Well, actually, maybe Boston. Put her stuff in plastic bags and leave her in front of the Salvation Army. Not that that's a good thing to do, only that it's typical for the USA.
 
2014-07-20 12:27:41 PM  
Maybe she plans on using the "biatch wouldn't share her butterscotch pudding" defense.
 
2014-07-20 12:28:25 PM  
She was incompetant with dementia 5 years ago and surely her condition hs only worstened since.

Just keep her in her own room.

From http://www.nbcnews.com/id/29534398/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/t/ex-p r o-wrestler-accused-nursing-home-death/#.U8vZgShiEy4 :

Police said there was no clear indication of what set Gagne off, and neither man could remember the incident afterward.

A dog doesn't really understand why you're rubbing his nose in shiat either.

Make the punishment fit the crime. Sign her up for Obamacare. (rim shot)

Just kidding.

But keeping her alive for a long time would be heinous. I always say that life in prison is more of a punishment than the death penalty. Sentence her to life in Florida. (double rim shot)

Again, I'm kidding. If she's demented enough to commit a murder at 102, there is no punishment possible, only vengefulness. Just make sure she doesn't do it again.

It saddens me to think that you can lead a reasonably happy life and then suffer a horrible fate in your old age. The Greeks were right when they said call no man happy until he is dead.

Cynical old bastards, the Ancients. You have to love 'em.

Mrs. Smith, you mean to tell me at 102 years old you don't have *any* enemies on earth? No one you don't like, no one you can't stand? No one you need to ask forgiveness of?

No, preacher, I don't.

Mrs. Smith, please tell the congregation how you've achieved that.

Easy, preacher. I outlived the biatches.

/love that joke.
 
2014-07-20 01:47:50 PM  
Give her the same amount of time with a plastic bag around her head.

Chances are she doesn't even remember the crime.

Sounds like to me a sex game gone wrong! Bwahahahahha!!!
 
2014-07-20 02:40:30 PM  
Jail or Nursing Home? I fail to see a difference. Some things about prison would be a hell of a lot better than a nursing home. Which is better with humane treatment?

Why drag my joint into this?
 
2014-07-20 04:43:02 PM  
More to the point, how will they find a "jury of her peers" ?
 
2014-07-20 05:05:12 PM  
No jury will ever hear of this.  They have her in a psych ward, waiting for her dementia to clear up enough for a trial.  Only way she leaves that place is feet first.

I spent some time working in a nursing home. You would not believe the soap opera shiat that goes on in those places. I had one teeny tiny sweet old lady from Wales (107) tell me all about how this young chippie (87) insisted on sitting next to HER man at rec time. "And if she does it again," she says to me one day, "I'm going to fecking kill the biatch!"

I believed her.

No prison, no state sanctioned death penalty, just reassign Verne Gagne as her roommate.

Wow. I never knew that Gagne wound up that way. Sad for everyone involved.
