His last meal was someone else's milkshake, that he drank up.

Innocent people have been killed, just not in this case. The death penalty has been around for millennium and people keep killing, it dryers re people.

If we have to have the death penalty they should have to be done in public.

You kill an 8 year old girl like that you kill the liberal in me.  A shame he got off so easy, he should have been broken on the wheel and left to linger outside of a mall or a car dealership for a few days. Sympathy for this piece of shiat ?  Not even a little bit.

El Brujo: If we have to have the death penalty they should have to be done in public.


I happen to agree. It should also include a moment of silence beforehand, just after reading the details of the crime that the individual was found guilty of committing. I wouldn't want it to be turned into a circus, which is always a risk, but people should acknowledge and bear witness to a homicide conducted on behalf of the government. I'm got no moral objection to lethal use of force (I was an infantryman), but it seems wrong to hide these acts away in the shadows, only for a select few.

Had to look at the name twice and laughed when I saw the movie reference. Wow 17 years is along time between executions and that was McVeigh from 17 years ago. And to think it's a lot longer in the state of California when they send people to death row cause some of them die before they're actually executed.

Well, if you're one of those idiots who believes that the Pro-Life crowd (i.e. Anti Abortion) is obligated to be opposed to the death penalty, then you're certainly not clever.   If you can't see the irony of the post I replied to in an age where "ALL LIVES MATTER" is responded to with the statement that Black lives are particularly threatened while over half a million abortions per year compared to under two dozen executions in 2019 doesn't fit the same criteria, well, so much for you being clever.

Literally the only reason for me to dislike the death penalty in These cases is that it's more expensive for the state. I say we give all people who have more than say, 10 years, a choice for death with dignity. I know I would take a lethal dose of something rather than spend all my days in prison, especially if it isn't going to really hurt. If they can do it for cancer patients they should offer it for prisoners. And I agree with you, it's way better than they deserve.

I agree. I will take it a step further and say he didn't deserve a public execution, he deserved to be, for a moment at least, a public spectacle. I would have paid good money to ppv this guy losing every bit of his dignity in a pen with an apex predator. Goddamn this has got me pissed off, I read that about the girl and it has ruined my whole day. I can't help feeling like he escaped justice here. On the other hand, if we had ppv Roman execution spectacles, it would probably lead to more innocent mentally-disabled black kids fed to the bears by Southern governors than anything else. Fark I am pissed.

Fetuses aren't fully developed human beings; people on death row ARE. The proponents of forced childbirth who claim to be "pro-life" are hypocrites for supporting the death penalty.

The pro life crowd should be opposed to the death penalty if just to be logically consistent. Many are. There many reasons to be opposed to the death penalty. This pos makes a case for it's use but justice could also be served if he was to rot away in prison.

Part of me agrees and part disagrees.

If I could count on people to be horrified by it to help put an end to it, then by all means make it public.

The problem is that it would probably be appealing to the wrong sorts of people.

And there are some that look at it as 'innocent life' vs 'non innocent life'.

There are people who think that elective abortion should be legal no matter how far along the pregnancy is, even up to the point of childbirth.  I dunno, seems like at some point it's basically infantacide.  My daughter was at 37 weeks when she was born and had an APGAR of 9 (she was a bit small).  Now certainly if the life/health of the mother is in danger or there's other severe problems, go with saving the mother.  Personally I'm kinda at 20 weeks, but I can be pulled either way a bit.

OTOH, someone who tortures and murders other people kinda loses their license to breathe air in extreme circumstances.

I agree. All the civilized countries perform public executions. If we ever hope to be as advanced as Saudi Arabia, North Korea, or Somalia, we need to adopt their justice system as much as possible.

Am I the only one who finds it ironic that the government kills people to prove the point that killing people is wrong?

Also we should start saying "pro birth", not "pro life".  Many of the people who claim to be "pro life" couldn't give a fark about the child once it's born.  Just look at the policies they support when they vote.

They aren't even pro-birth. If they were they'd fund prenatal care and push to lower our infant mortality rate. It's all about punishment for slatterns.
