Start with the Sackler family, and we'll talk.

Drugs are a health care problem.

We need a health care system, not a cop.

Three first names?  Yep.

For some drug dealers. I'll wager he doesn't mean all of them.
 
2020-05-20 8:05:31 PM  
Would that mechanism address the local Alabama mayoral candidate problem?
 
2020-05-20 8:07:20 PM  
I'd watch the Sackler clan hang...

59 year old special education teacher.
Basically an entitled boomer union member wanting to kill people.
Anyone want to bet he calls his students leeches on society?

"James describes himself as a Christian and right-to-life conservative"

He's so right-to-life that he wants to hang people.  Maybe he can share the Bible verse where Jesus executed people, because the way I remember it the only person who was executed in the gospels was Jesus.

He's also proposed the Skittles become a Schedule 1 drug.

Drug dealing is a capital crime in China.  I thought being like China was bad this week.

I think killing all the drug dealers was the plot of Death Wish IV.

Craig Landau has more than a few tombstones in his name.

"Yes, I'm very aware public hanging is extreme and totally not possible without Federal Approvals and not from city or state officials," James wrote on Facebook. "Extreme yes, but definitely brings attention to this scourge on Sylacauga, Alabama"

It definitely brings attention to the scourge alright.

Beat me to it. He looks like the kinda guy that would erect a burning cross in those drug dealers' front yards as a warning.

Rapmaster2000: I think killing all the drug dealers was the plot of Death Wish IV.


I think of was also the plot of Seagal's Marked For Death.

The candidate knows people will hear the dog whistle that the only Drug Dealers are the black folk, who are used to hanging's

What a disgusting embarrassment of a teacher. He should be embarrassed.

Okay, I grew up in an area where the Klan was basically the local government's unofficial third party (well, "third" party, it was basically the Klan versus a slight majority of the Democrats and like one nominal Republican who wasn't Klan), but honestly I have to admit that even by those standards this guy is making it a little too obvious.

I mean, it's impressive in a way to be so open about it that a random news report on you still signals your Klan membership separately in any individual paragraph when taken separately, but also... Jesus Christ, dude.  Just because you're a card-carrying member of a terrorist organization doesn't mean you have to flash that card ever two farking sentences.  Have some goddamned subtlety, dude, your big bro Bin Laden was able to hide who he was for years during an international manhunt.

Actually there were those other two at the end strung up next to Jesus, but the Romans did that and they weren't exactly the good guys in that story.

You could try not systemically suppressing brown people too, every think of that?

Well, he hung out with a pretty odd crew. 12 "disiples" and a whore? Big parties where "miracles" happened? C'mon, dude was obviously slinging some serious shiat. And everyone forgets the part where he "wandered the desert" AKA being a DJ for warehouse rave parties in his 20s. Dude got what he had coming.

Start with doctors and work your way down to the unlicensed pharmacologists.

Doctors be the biggest drug dealers in America.  It's not meth if it's Adderall!!! It's not heroin if it's oxy!

So wait, a small town mayor can approve that punishment?

Is that small town named LYNCHburg?
 
2020-05-20 8:58:42 PM  
"Small government" always means something other than what I would assume it means.
 
2020-05-20 8:59:56 PM  
"Yes, I'm very aware public hanging is extreme and totally not possible without Federal Approvals and not from city or state officials,"

Are we sure about that?  Because it seems to me like some small town mayor - or at least some messed-up state governor - could order public hangings and unless they were challenged in court nobody would stop them.

/I'm pretty sure the ACLU and maybe a few others might challenge it.

Shiat, firing squad is still an option in Utah.
 
2020-05-20 9:22:58 PM  
Huh.  Harsh penalties for drug dealers.  Amazing no one has tried that.  I wonder if it would work.
 
2020-05-20 9:26:07 PM  
I wonder which drugs he thinks get the rope and which do not?

I bet he equates MJ with meth

Last year didn't a sheriff in Alabama claim someone OD'd on weed?
They also had other, more powerful narcotics in their system, but whatever...

I recall John the Baptist was executed in the gospels as well.

So four executions, included Jesus.

We should visit Alabama.  Seems somebody fell off the short bus.

True, and once again it was the Romans.

Wow, never thought of that. Kind of like a Biblical detox.
