We are fed up with all the murder that goes on in America, and especially with how murderers are handled – particularly in liberal states like Illinois where murder is rampant, and its Governor, the worthless Pat Quinn, has successfully eliminated the death penalty, thereby giving those people hell-bent on murder another excuse not to think about their actions.
Story one: a Utah girl, six years old, is found murdered in a canal. She was also sexually assaulted.
Story two: a pregnant woman, Danielle Watson, is stabbed to death 25 times during a “botched robbery”.
People who commit murder need to be sentenced to death, and executed within a reasonable length of time after having been convicted – say, five years. Screw the ACLU; screw the liberal anti-death penalty crowd; screw the people who say the death penalty is inhumane. What is inhumane is allowing murderers to live out their lives in taxpayer-funded prisons, and living like kings and gods off the taxpayer’s dime. People who are prone to commit murder do so for reasons that also include their understanding of American law, how lawyers operate, and how to leach off the “compassion” of those people who oppose the death penalty. They also understand that, as of now, in those states that still have a death penalty, that it generally takes years before they are actually executed, if they are executed at all.
Whether or not the death penalty is a deterrent to murder is absolutely irrelevant. Go back in time, thousands of years, and consider that when one committed murder within their society they were put to death in incredibly horror-filled ways that would be un-Constitutional today. If they were not deterred back then, despite the techniques used to execute them, obviously, nobody today who wants to commit murder is going to be deterred by lethal injection.
The death penalty needs to be society’s ultimate answer for the ultimate of crimes against humanity. If that does not deter a single person from committing murder – so what? The point of the death penalty should not be to deter murder, but to be society’s final answer. The more we coddle to murderers; the more we sympathize with them; the more we allow rogue, corrupt, worthless entities like the ACLU and political garbage like Illinois Governor, Pat Quinn, to get away with making it that much easier to commit murder in America, the more – we as a society will come to accept murder is a part of society. Good idea?
