I'm trying to come back to the site on a regular basis. However, you might notice a difference in my postings, no worries, my stand is still SOLID on the Pro side!
I slipped away from here for the months preceding the Stroman execution, not because I disagreed with it, I supported his punishment completely, however for those who don't know me, I once knew him and even though I support the punishment he received it was a hard reality to know he was really going to die. It's hard for me to explain (I cant even explain it to myself), especially since I had not exchanged communication with him since 2006 my feelings were confusing to me. So I removed myself from the site until it was over.
I've decided that when I am back on here on a regular basis I will not celebrate the death of any one, not even the most vile of criminals. Sometimes our words here do appear as we are celebrating and honestly I don't want any part of that, I would just like to exchange news, opinions and ideas in a respectful manner. I have to remind myself that some of these criminals do have family members and young children or grandchildren and I don't want to lower myself to post things like "rot in hell" and the like for them to possibly see, it is in bad taste and just wrong in my opinion. The punishment they received is death and when executions are carried out their debt to society is paid. I'm going to do my very best to take the high road from now on and if I fall short at times I hope someone here will give me a good kick in the ass to get me back on track.
As for the anti's and the pen pal anti's. There is a difference between the two, a true anti will still view the criminal as a vile human being yet not approve of executing him. A pen pal cuddles up with the vile criminal and blabs to the world what a wonderful human being their thug is. I'm sorry but wonderful human beings do not murder others! To the real anti's here, you have my respect. To the pen pals who might happen upon this site - it's best you leave now because you're not welcome here, my advice to you is seek therapy for whatever is missing in your life that has led you to turn to murdering thugs on death row for friendship.
I hope everyone here can remember why we are here, to post facts, to counter the lies the thughuggers put out there and to remember and support the victims and their families. Most of us are on the same side of the fence and there is no reason we should be fighting with each other - that has to stop and it will stop.
I'm looking forward to meeting all the new members who have joined since I've been gone and I would like to thank the staff here for all of their hard work, you guys truly are the very best!!
