His attorneys were earlier denied requests to reopen his case after a new type of DNA analysis found the DNA of an unknown person on one of the murder weapons.

It's this kind of shiat that makes me not support the death penalty. That and the State shouldn't be in the business of murdering its citizens. But if they're going to do it, I don't see what's wrong with the firing squad. Like TFA says, people often suffer with the lethal injection. And they can catch on fire with the electric chair.

Yet Tennessee governor Bill Lee granted a temporary reprieve for Smith, who was convicted of the 1989 killings of his estranged wife and her two teenage sons, after what was called an 'oversight' in preparations for the lethal injection.

I don't know whether I should be happy there are processes in place to catch oversights before summarily executing someone or extremely concerned that the process of summarily executing someone lends itself to last minute preparation errors.

Oscar Franklin Smith is a real piece of shiat, by all rights. He's the kind of person most Farkers think deserve death. He won't wear a mask. He's racist. He's going to steal packages off your porch (if he wasn't in prison). Like all of you, he's a farking asshole. He's probably a Trumper.

But here's what they used to convict him:

At trial, crime scene investigators testified they found a bloody palm print on the sheet next to Judy Smith's body that was missing the same two fingers Oscar Smith is missing.[4] Later, Smith hired a fingerprint expert who called this evidence into question and claimed that the investigator made numerous errors and could not have definitively identified the print.[4]
On July 26, 1990, Smith was sentenced to death by a jury in Davidson County.[6][4]


That's the Wiki summary. Here's the Murderpedia summary (it's long):

https://murderpedia.org/male.S/s/smith-oscar-franklin.htm

I'll save you the read - he's almost certainly guilty. I don't believe we gain anything by killing him now. It doesn't help the family of the victims.

I don't know what kind of "new type of DNA analysis" this is. Maybe good and maybe some junk science. But the jury convicted him. Juries can get it wrong, but the legal process goes on and on. I don't think we should have a death penalty except 1) when the accused admits he did it and 2) there is sufficient evidence to prove he did, and no evidence to prove he did not.

Lethal injection is a grisly, horrifying and sick parody of a medical procedure. It should be banned as cruel and unusual. The firing squad is good enough.

Ok, that's effed up. Cruel as hell to put him through that again.

Commute the guy. And reopen the trial; if you believe in God, karma, fate, whatever... sure looks like divine intervention.

WastrelWay: 1) when the accused admits he did it


John Oliver (I know but he actually does informative stories) did a show on the lengths cops go through to get confessions and it's often pretty cruel and unusual. There are several cases of people who gave confessions under duress who were later found innocent. So a confession isn't iron clad proof of guilt.

True. I'm not talking about a confession under duress extracted by cops. I mean the kind of confession where he (or she, just to be fair and not sexist) admits he did it. "OK, you got me."

The smart way to go is to request pate from a dodo.  By the time they clone the extinct bird back into existence, force feed it until it's liver is about to burst and then fry it up you'll have died of old age.

Joking aside, I'm not completely opposed to the idea of the death penalty, there are some people who are just beyond redemption as human beings.  Yet I'd rather see it go away completely than use it the way we do in this country.

First of all, it should be for the worst of the worst offenders only.  Serial killers, child rapists etc... people that can never be trusted in society again.

Next it should be done more humanely.  Say what you will about a firing squad, but it's a more painless death than most of us will eventually have.

Finally, it shouldn't be about punishment, it should be about permanent isolation.  Our entire penal system needs a complete overhaul.  It should be all about rehabilitation and isolation.

Rehabilitation for the minor criminals and the people who merely snapped.  You know what pays better than cooking meth, being a pimp, or a typical drug dealer?  A job... pretty much any job in the long run.

It's not really vengeance, when you choose to murder in a state with a death penalty you accept that penalty.  It's up to you if you want it to be a deterrent or not.  He chose not.

To a degree. 32 years in damned near solitary, taking someone to the brink of death after they make peace with it, pulling them back, making them sweat the date again, wondering if next time is for real... that's cruel, and definitely unusual.

Remember, this 72-year old must be executed.  Otherwise, he may escape from prison and kill again.
 
2022-04-22 10:31:09 PM  
Ironically, he died choking on the pie. So they added pie to the list of allowed execution methods. So the pie companies banned the sale of pies to prisons. So the prisoners rioted, and a number of them died. And one of those that died hated pie.

How about we do away with the death penalty but don't tell him? Every so often put him through the whole execution procedure  only to have something go wrong at the last minute. You could even inject him with a sedative that makes him lose consciousness, only to have him wake up and be told the drug must have been too weak. Or put him in front of a firing squad and have everybody miss.

The convicted's bloody handprint was on the bedsheets next to his dead ex wife. The convict was a leather worker. The victims were also stabbed with an awl and slashed with a knife in addition to being shot by a .22 caliber handgun. The convict owned the same weapon and tools.

Why has this guy been breathing and squandering taxpayer money for over three decades?
