… The Death Penalty is Moral …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 12th,2017

.. and it is Constitutional ..

.. the loonie lefties who are trying to ban it should remember that ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news report …

.. we as a nation should remember that capital punishment is the taking of a human life . It should be done with due process , with dispatch , and with certainty , as well as clarity …

.. are there better methods than lethal injection ? I believe so . I would like to know what other people think ….

… Utah will not be the Only State [#revival of capital punishment methods]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 20th,2016

.. nor will the firing squad be the only method brought back .

.. the electric chair ? maybe , but not likely . too many headaches with people getting ” fried . ” Well , isn’t it the damn idea in the first place ?? …

.. hanging ? quick and simple .

.. the gas chamber ? ditto …

.. the guillotine ? ah , no …

.. with the Europeans getting real queasy about selling drugs that are used in executions here in the U.S. , well , the states with the Death Penalty are going to have to get creative … they are also going to have to go back to the future , er , the past , to do away with the bad guys …

.. and no , the Phantom Zone is not available …

… the Washington Navy Yard Shooting …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 16th,2013

.. not sure what to think , at least not yet ….

…. ….

.. Now I am . God awful tragedy . Think that they got the shooter . Hope so .

[link] — wikipedia piece on the Navy Yard

.. horrendous for our military services (Navy & Marines , in particular) who work at the facility , also the civilians (likely quite a few)

.. logo of Naval Sea Systems Cmnd ...

.. logo of Naval Sea Systems Cmnd …

who are there , just going about things and doing their normal business …

.. wake – up call , considering the close quarters in D.C. (near Nationals Park , less than a mile to the Capitol , about 2.5 miles to the White House complex) , and the tens of thousands of tourists , civilians , and others , going about their normal business , and , yet they hear about this ?? …

.. makes people think twice about security , including our nation ‘ s security , that more attention and resources should be devoted to it . politicians should pay more attention to the subjects …

[link] — wikipedia piece on the Navy Sea Systems Command , the probable location of  the shooting …

.. may God bless Those folks (our fellow citizens) many of whom devote their lives and careers to our nation ‘ s defense , and to their families , for the numerous sacrifices that that service entails …

.. D.C. is federal turf , especially the shooting is at a military installation , which is definitely federal ground , throw the book at them , include the death penalty (for the surviving scumbags , if any) …

.. Our Nation ‘ s Capital does not need to be an armed camp , yet we need to pay much more attention to security . A good number of those in that military facility were likely armed , and may well have helped to bring the scumbag down …

… Nats – Braves has been rescheduled … understandible … too close to the Yard , if I understand it right …

Nationals Park

… also , I-295 & I-395 run right by the area . Stay out of there , it is an active crime scene , only go in there if absolutely necessary …

… Nidal Hasan & the Death Penalty …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 3rd,2013

.. Well , he has gotten his just desserts . This pile of sub – human scum has received the penalty that he deserved , the death penalty . The verdict was unanimous on all 13 counts for which he could have received it . Which is poetic justice .

.. Instead of going to heaven , this bastard is stripped of his military rank . He now has no military rank at all . With an officer , such as Hasan , it is different . He will be imprisoned even though he has been now dismissed from the military service . With an enlisted man (yes , a man ) such as Bradley Manning , you are still in the service . Hasan is not .

.. He will not go to heaven . He will rot in hell . Which is exactly what he deserved . No heavenly virtue . No 72 virgins . None of that . None of that at all .

… Is Nidal Hasan Gone nuts ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 13th,2013

.. it is said that a person who represents himself in court has a terrorist killer for a client, or something like that :

The military judge presiding over the court-martial of Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan ruled that he can continue to represent himself, denying a bid from his legal advisors to take over his defense amid concerns the former Army psychologist is trying to sink his own case to get the death penalty.

The lawyers assisting Hasan, called “standby attorneys,” claim he is trying to get the death penalty and have said it would be “morally repugnant” to help him achieve such a sentence. Hasan admitted in his opening statement that he was the shooter, appearing to be trying to get himself convicted.

..  If Hasan really wants the death penalty, he ought to be able to simply cop a plea . Unfortunately or not , it is a death penalty case . The Uniform Code for Military Justice [the U.C.M.J.] does not allow that in a capital case . Otherwise , the UCMJ would be happy to oblige him. No, what he wants is to put on some fancy legal theater and then get put to death. Which is more important? Probably the theater.

.. In order to play his own part in this , Hasan must be seen — in his eyes and in the eyes of his al-Qaeda comrades — to be the master, the conductor of his own trial. He will put on a glorious show, culminating in a glorious death for Allah. This has little to do with suicide-by-courtroom, and everything to do with an agent of radical Islam bending a Western institution to his will. Again.

… Ariel Castro , Welcome to “Hell” …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 1st,2013

.. Castro is the name of the sub – human form of excrement who imprisoned , raped , tortured , and … three young women for 10 years or more on the near West Side of Cleveland , which ended this spring .

.. At the least , Castro reached a plea bargain . Doing this spares him the death penalty , which he so richly deserves . However , it does spare these young women a great deal of anguish and heartache , as they will not be forced to relive their ordeal on the witness stand . And , yea , I wish the guy could still get the death penalty .

.. This guy is pond scum . The worst , the lowest of the low , the most disgusting form of sub – human excrement who has ever walked the earth . I never thought that anyone could have surpassed scum such as Charles Manson , but Ariel Castro has sure as hell done that .

.. Prison is its own form of Hell . And Castro is about to find out that he will never , ever , ever walk the earth a free man ever again . Hopefully , a compassionate prison warden will be smart enough to put him into the general population . Boy , would that be a “fortunate move.”

.. Prisons have their own code of “justice.” Among the lowest of the low are rapists and child molesters . The guys who take out the scum are “heroes” among the cons , and even among the prison staff . Maybe Castro may well get prison “justice.” He has it coming , god knows .

… At last , these Women can be at Peace …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 26th,2013

.. Amanda Berry . Gina DeJesus . Michelle Knight . these young women have been through what can only be described as the depths of unspeakable hell . Being taken captive is bad enough . Being held captive for 10 years , or more , continual rape , sexual assault , and even murder ? My God , what kind of subhuman creature could perpetrate such a thing ?

.. Angel Castro , that is who . He took these young ladies , and altered their lives , forever . He took them prisoner , tortured them , raped them , assaulted them , and took them on a hellish journey . How could he do such a thing ? Yet , he did .

.. Their families never gave up hope that they were alive . They pampleted their neighbourhoods . They marched . They garnered as much publicity as they humanly could . Yet , nothing . Then , all of a sudden . Bang .

.. All of a sudden , with some help from local people on the west side of Cleveland , these women (now adults) regained their freedom . Yet , it was not just the three of them . It was now 4 . The rapist Castro had fathered a child with Ms. Berry , who is now about 6 or 7 years old .

.. Thankfully , the people of my home community have been extraordinary generous . Much money has been donated towards the futures of all three young women , and the young child . However , the money can only help make up for part of their suffering . The news from the justice system today hopefully can help go a very long way towards giving them a sense of peace of mind that they so richly deserve .

.. Angel Castro will never see the outside of a prison , ever again . He reached a plea bargain , that , takes the possible death penalty off of the table . I am not totally thrilled with the plea bargain , but I do understand it . More important is the peace of mind of the 3 (now 4) victims , so that they can begin the process of going on with their lives .

.. I pray that Amanda , Michelle , Gina , and Amanda ‘ s little girl can find the peace that they so richly deserve . And that they can find a future that is of their choice .

… The Death Penalty for Gosnell ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 14th,2013

… to be honest , I believe that he should get it . Three times . One for each time that he was found guilty of 1st degree murder of an innocent . Especially , it would be poetic justice . Gosnell was morally guilty of far , far more , in the murder of so many more innocents . So , the ultimate price would be fitting .

.. Now that the jury has found Kermit Gosnell guilty of three counts of first-degree murder and dozens of other charges, the trial’s sentencing phase begins a week from tomorrow. Gosnell will possibly face the death penalty .

.. But should the Butcher of Philadelphia be executed ? My feeling is Yes . It would be poetic justice . Justice for the three innocents that he did murder , and was convicted of doing so at his criminal trial . Justice for the many , many more innocents that he murdered throughout the years , but for which he was not charged with a criminal offense . Justice for the butchery to the malpractice that he committed throughout his career .

.. Talking about arrogance , though . Whether you might agree , or not ,  consider this story from last week :

According to [Philadelphia reporter] J.D. Mullane, a source told him that when   Sheriff’s deputies called Gosnell by his first name – Kermit – the abortionist   demanded in response, “You will call me Doctor Gosnell.”   To which the deputies shot back: “You’re just an inmate now, Kermit.”

.. Gosnell spent most of the trial smirking . He still seems to regard himself as a medical professional , above all this moral wrangling over abortion. Fine. Debase and embarrass the good doctor . But , do so with an appropriate punishment .

.. Death ..
