Re: “Missouri shrouds its executions in secrecy. It's time to end the state's death penalty

The death penalty is one of those things that if I were in charge, I'd probably abolish, since the list of countries who still use is is basically us and a motley crew of others, but I sure as shit am not going to lose one night of sleep or shed one tear for this bastard. I don't support it, but don't give a shit if it happens.

As Wink said....Fuck em.

jaded_hipster-Civilized is the adjective you seem to be implying, and I wave my bullshit flag vigorously if that's the case.

Tell the barbarians in midtown that kill each other when the weather turns warm just how civilized we are.

Sit the condemned in a chair not unlike the ones used for massages. Strap them down, and secure their head to the halo. Bring the barrel of a remotely fired 30.06 caliber execution weapon down so it is aligned with the back of their skull...laser cross hairs should make it easy to do that. Have the condemned say their final words. Give the signal...and an officer in the other room pulls the trigger...Pow!!!...game over. Quick, painless, and cheap.

If they can abolish death-row inmates constitutional rights, what is to stop them from abolishing yours? Why do conservatives always have to bring up abortion, as if an anti- abortion/ pro death-penalty position wasn't a logical paradox. Learn to think.

Tout the 8th ammendment all you want-I am of of the opinion that any murdering bastard loses their constitutional rights when they CHOOSE to murder.

Fuck'em.

Re: “Missouri shrouds its executions in secrecy. It's time to end the state's death penalty

Lori, that's a common argument, but it doesn't have teeth. A Kansas legislative audit found that the cost of a death penalty case was 70% higher than that of a comparable non-death penalty case. Repeated studies/audits in other states have reached similar conslusions:

Housing an inmate for life is a comparative bargain.

Re: “Missouri shrouds its executions in secrecy. It's time to end the state's death penalty

So we should then continue to house these inmates forever? The cost alone would be unbelievable!! The recidivism rate in Missouri is already high. Taking away the death sentence would only encourage crime without punishment.

Re: “Missouri shrouds its executions in secrecy. It's time to end the state's death penalty

Actually, Jake Elliot, I'd argue the pussification of this country hasn't gone far enough. This isn't the wild wild west anymore, the settler-colonial project is complete and we don't need Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges arguing over who has the most testosterone pumping through their veins ala True Grit on the campaign trail or in the courthouse. The frontier has been closed for over 100 years now, I don't think its absurd to ask the state, which by definition has the monopoly over the use of force, to behave in a civilized manner. If you think the bodies of convicted felons are an appropriate place to play out your torture fantasies, have at it, but you live in a society where not everyone agrees, and in this case I think you're wrong.

The cognitive dissonance it requires to fiercely believe in life and God's will while fiercely advocating for violent, merciless death in the name of the state is always surprising.

As soon as they end the death penalty for unborn and partially born children I will jump on board for adults found guilty by a jury.

More like tour de FARCE! Boo Hoo I cry crocodile tears for this POS' suffering. I've got a better solution. Let the family of the woman he killed pick his mode of death and televise it live at all prisons with mandatory viewing for ALL Criminals.

Re: “Missouri shrouds its executions in secrecy. It's time to end the state's death penalty

Push them off a tall building. Put them in a wood chipper. Give them carbon monoxide. If they did something to deserve the death penalty they have given up their constitutional rights to a peaceful death. Where in the constitution is this being interpreted anyway? I'm sure the writers of the constitution never intended on it being interpreted this way.

Re: “Missouri shrouds its executions in secrecy. It's time to end the state's death penalty

The pussification of this country is getting out of control.
So we should show mercy on someone who shot someone and let them bleed out and then kidnapped a woman and raped her? That is the person you want to show mercy to?? Give me a break. It's already enough that each one of us has supported this low-life turd through taxes to live with 3 hots and a cot for almost 20 years-now we should allow him to live out the rest of his life because it might be painful for him to die? You know what's painful? Getting shot in the f'ing chest and bleeding to death.
How about you volunteer to take the rapists and murderers on Death Row and have them come stay at your house with your family? Maybe baby-sit your kids, help your wife cook while you're out of town? Yea, I imagine we would hear nothing but crickets on that one.
Their execution should be painful- it should make them go through excruciating pain- the last minutes/seconds of their life should make them think of what they did that lead up to that moment. F' them. They didn't show compassion for their victims- why should we? And don't say 'then we would be just like them'- WE didn't commit those crimes. WE didn't rape and murder. (and I'm only talking about the death row inmates- not the low-level dime bag weed dealer either-that's a different story).

Re: “Missouri shrouds its executions in secrecy. It's time to end the state's death penalty

Oh you bleeding heart liberals are too freaking much. He murdered a woman - he made her watch her grave being dug, shot her and then buried her alive. His execution was too easy. They should have chopped his arms and legs off and thrown him in the hog pen still alive.

You're all for aborting 1 million babies a year for the last 40 years, but shed a tear for a heartless cold blooded killer. What a sick, misplaced sense of priorities you have.

Again, there seems to be some "Criminal Coddlers", more worried about the Murderers, than the Actual Victims and / or how the Victims and their Famalies suffered.

for which I have no use for "Criminal Coddlers" !!!
