An eye for an eye. U.S. News – California voters to consider ending capital punishment.
The death penalty, some want it abolished, others want it to stay, and still others think the process to rid this earth of a disease like a murderer slowly seeps along like sap from a Maple tree. Yet righteous wackos, along with those soulless deranged criminal attorneys think that the death penalty is an unjust, cruel and inhumane way of dealing with those that take it upon themselves to end someone elses life. Hurt feelings about what was said about criminal attorneys, to bad keep reading. Apologies, but anyone who feels that a criminal should get compensation, in some form, for hurting themselves on someones property during a crime, or committing murder, should be hung and disbarred from practicing law. Shame on you for even fathom the thought that these criminals deserve any rights or liberties.
Yet digression has set in. The arguments for abolishing the death penalty are minimal at best. They claim, and I agree, that it is costing Californians millions of dollars, the other claim, and I laugh cold heartedly at this, is that it is cruel and unusual punishment and inhumane and unjust. Wait, what are you wackos smoking? Did you get your weed from the Inland Empire, San Bernardino county region or what? Why should these murderers receive anything less than a cruel and inhumane execution? These cave dwelling uneducated criminals did not spare any cruelty or humanity when they decided to brutally kill another human being.
And to touch on the other claim or should I say fact in regards to the astronomical cost of retribution that is administered for the death penalty. Why does it cost approximately 300 million tax payer dollars to convict and execute these worthless humans, for outreaching the cost to house them per year for the rest of their life ($90,000 per year)? The reason is ladies and gentlemen, is because the law allows it. We allow these criminals to perform countless appeals on their convictions, which takes up tax dollars to pay for defense attorneys, legal fees and union workers (i.e. Police, Prison Guards and state civil workers), all of this to try to overturn a conviction that originally contained enough evidence to convict the person. No apologies if this hurts any readers feelings, but if there is enough credible evidence, not to mention eye witnesses or any type of media that directly implicates someone in a crime of such a horrendous nature, then there should be no appeals what so ever; “You did the crime, the verdict has been read and your sentence will begin and your execution date is on such and such date. Next case!”
Here is a logical thought, who cares about the pain and suffering these death row inmates succumb to in the execution, they had no consideration for the pain and suffering of their victims so they are due no just respect from anyone or any legal entity. Same that 300 million dollars, but a .45 Magnum Revolver and load each chamber with a hallow point round. Stand the convict against the wall, point the revolver at their head and pull the trigger. Let us see here what this will eliminate; A bullet to the brain eliminates any pain and suffering from the instantaneous explosion of brain matter, and $299,999,750 California tax dollars are now saved from purchasing a basic hand gun. Not to mention that would save an extra $90,000 per year from having to store these useless individuals in our jail systems.
Back in Jan. 31, 2002, Chris Clem, JD, Attorney at Samples, Jennings, Ray & Clem, PLLC, stated the following:
“Executions do not have to cost that much. We could hang them and re-use the rope. No cost! Or we could use firing squads and ask for volunteer firing squad members who would provide their own guns and ammunition. Again, no cost.”
Come on America, stop being so damn yellow-bellied and spineless and show criminals and those thinking of creating horrendous crimes that we are not going to tolerate it and there is a dire consequence if they do commit any such act. That is the problem with some American citizens today, they believe through their righteous self-centered ways that everyone should be shown kindness and forgiveness, but hear this, if one of these criminals performed any such action on these book thumping individuals they would be calling for the person’s head.
What are your thoughts on the death penalty? Any thoughts of why these criminals should be shown leniency and pardoned from their death sentence to a life in prison instead costing California much-needed tax dollars?
