    First Woman Executed in the U.S. in Five Years

    It is sad when some people are executed and a time for jubilation with others go.

    This time it was a cold blooded woman who was not worthy of mercy for the murder of her Husband and Stepson for money.

    She couldn't do what most worthless B****es do and just run off with some other guy.

    She is no better than Aileen Carol Wuornos prostitute (February 29, 1956 – October 9, 2002) was an American serial killer who killed seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990.



    FOXNews.com - First Woman Executed in the U.S. in Five Years

    JARRATT, Va. -- The first woman executed in the United States in five years was put to death in Virginia on Thursday for arranging the killings of her husband and a stepson over a $250,000 insurance payment.

    Teresa Lewis, 41, died by injection at 9:13 p.m. Thursday, authorities said. She became the first woman executed in Virginia in nearly a century. Supporters and relatives of the victims watched her execution at Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt.

    Lewis enticed two men through sex, cash and a promised cut in an insurance policy to shoot her husband, Julian Clifton Lewis Jr., and his son, Charles, as they were sleeping in the couple's mobile home in October 2002. Both triggermen were sentenced to life in prison and one committed suicide in 2006.

    Her IQ was so low she almost legally qualified for retardation.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    What does that have to do with the fact she murdered her husband and stepson for money? If someone commits a very evil deed like this then they should be executed. Their IQ does not make them any more or less evil than someone with a higher IQ doing the same crime.

    "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"

    She was able to figure out that she could profit from murder and she planned the murders and was there to watch them take place. She then delayed calling 011 before he died her husband is reported to have said she knew who did it.

    She scored 69 in a test in 1070 which is questionable, but she was quite functional and I din't care if she scored 59 she was a cold blooded calculating woman who was a danger to others and she proved it,

    Liberals and death penalty oponents have been protesting to no avil and I agree there are some excecutions that are questionable. This is not one of them.

    Re: First Woman Executed in the U.S. in Five Years

    I am opposed to the death penalty because, sometimes, an innocent gets caught in the system and forfeits his or her life.

    That being said, under present law, she should not get preferential treatment because she is a woman. If a man had done this, he would be toast. So should she, and she now is. Until the law is changed, this works for me.

    Someone who has an IQ of 69 is much more likely to murder someone than a person of average IQ. I'm not giving her any excuses, I just don't think she should have been executed. I don't think anyone should be executed. Judging by Americas murder rate it obviously isn't a useful detterent so what is the point of it. Also the risk of executing an innocent person is too great.

    Shouldn't you Christian conservatives be against anyways on the grounds of religion, I thought god was the only person who could judge a man for his sins..I don't think Jesus would approve of the execution of a woman who scored a 69 on her IQ test, do you?

    I'm not supportive of the death penalty for the same reasons that Dan isn't but read the freaking story.
    She arranged sex between her 16 year old kid and one of the trigger men.
    What the hell?

    If she is not mentally competent enough, to be accountable for her actions, then she shouldn't be weighing the state down either.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What is a useful deterrent then? We can't have people like this out on the street, and we shouldn't have to pay to keep them alive for the next 40+ years. We need to get rid of them some how, as sad as it is. If there is a better way then I'm all for it. If not then I'd rather just get rid of them as cold as that may sound.

    This is my problem with the death penalty. Its actually not cheaper by a long shot. The cost of all the court preceding, supplied lawyers to the defendant, who often can't afford their own, and the huge amount of scrutiny that goes into deciding on a death penalty is enormous. Plus, most death row inmates sit on death years for years if not decades anyway.
