    [b]D.C. sniper mastermind set to be executed Tuesday [/u]

    My only question is:

    What's with the huge delay?

    There wasn't any doubt, they were caught red handed.

    When is his side kick, getting the needle?

    Oh, that's right. The poor little darling was a juvenile and can't be held responsible for his direct and willing participation in the murder of so many people.

    BS.


    Would it be insensitive to have a "HURRAY THEY"RE KILLING MOHAMMED TODAY" parade at the prison when the execution happens?

    That's one hell of an effective deterrent, I'd say.

    There's an easy solution.

    Kill'em quicker.

    Jose Avilla, found guilty of kidnapping, raping, and then murdering five year old Samantha Runnion, left his DNA in the victim, and her DNA was found in his car.

    Absolutely zero doubt that he committed the crime.

    Yet he's still getting appeals and meals at taxpayer expense, when he should have been executed within a year of his conviction.

    I have absolutely no problems with vengeance in cases like this. Kill him without regards to his comfort. Hanging cannot be a violation of the Eighth Amendment since that was the standard mode of executing prisoners when the Constitution was ratified. Ropes are reuseable.

    If we like, we can tie a bungee cord around his neck and push him off the Golden Gate Bridge, so his toes just get wet for bouncing and strangling.

    I'm sure there's a tall bridge Mohammed can be pitched off of, if the idea appeals for the this guys victims.

    Why not?

    Read the Oresteia to see the reasons why.

    Would you send your son to his room as punishment if he has a tv, video games, computer, phone and other things in his room?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Of course, the counter is "This was God Himself, not the State".

    The question then becomes "If God is more than willing to kill those that sin, what argument is there that He opposes the state doing the same?"
    The Hebrew god allowed Satan to destroy Job's life, including killing his family to win a bet with the devil.

    So, nope, no biblical argument against capital punishment exists.

    Yup, even the innocent ones we kill don't re-imaginary offend. Awesome.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    My son will not have those things in his room. So it's a moot question.

    If you want to equate someone's bedroom with tv, video games, computer, phone, and porn DVDs () with jail....be my guest. I'm just yanking your chain by the way. Maybe you have personal knowledge of how great being in jail is. Who knew?
