on: January 28, 2014, 10:51:59 AM 1 General Death Penalty / Executed Offenders (Graveyard) / Re: Suzanne Basso TX DR #999329 Feb 5, 2014

Have you seen the change.org petition to stop this POS's execution? If you care to see it, I posted it. Is it true that she could get a stay because she is in wheelchair? If anyone deserves the DP, it is this woman. I only wish that she could be executed the same way that she killed that poor man. http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-the-execution-of-suzanne-basso


If she is in a wheelchair, then just provide handicapped parking next to the gurney.  Problem solved......

Exactly how does a bad childhood equate to a mental disease?

Exactly how does a lack of a father figure equate to a mental disease?

By that logic, since my father was ill from the time I was 9, until the time that he died when I was 13, I lacked a father figure and should have turned out to be a criminal.  Well, except for the fact that I worked two jobs, put myself through college and law school, served 25 years in a District Attorney's office, never robbed, raped, murdered, abused, or assaulted anyone, I guess I am a criminal.  Cool, i always wanted to be one of the bad boys that girls always liked.

Human, we get it.  Your love for life is huge, and your ability to combine rational thought with reality is small.  I believe you when you say God loves all.  I believe He does as well.  However, I do not believe that God says the truly worst of the worst should be spared.  That is why God uses us as His tool to implement the ultimate punishment, placing responsibility squarely at the the feet of those who try so hard to deny it.

If you wish to oppose the DP, and convince others that it is wrong, perhaps you should start with God, then maybe report back when He changes his mind...

on: October 07, 2013, 02:33:59 PM 4 General Death Penalty / Death Penalty Cases Reversed - New Trials / Re: Verdict overturned Cali DR Steven Edward Crittenden

This is one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't moments for a prosecutor.

Almost every prosecutor I ever worked with was extremely conscious of any jury makeup, for fear that it could, and often was, brought up as grounds for appeal.   You retain, or dismiss, any prospective juror based upon their attitude towards the case, their perceived intelligence at the time, and the likelihood that they will be fair and impartial throughout the trial.  To believe that a defendant did not receive a fair trial because of the lack of a specific skin color flies in the face of the sought-after equality the majority of defense attorneys scream for in many other social matters.  We are to be color blind as a society, until it is believed that it might benefit their client to have a person of color on a jury.  Nevermind the fact that blacks convict blacks daily, as do hispanics, Asians, and many other types.  To believe that the outcome might have been different is laughable at best, and yet we see soft-headed judges who continue to rule in this manner.  Because when jury summons are sent out you have no idea of the skin color of the recipient, what is one to do if no blacks respond for jury duty, say "sorry, our bad, you can go"?  This is another example of the raping of society by misguided individuals who cling to false beliefs that the system is prejudiced against minorities, when these misguided individuals are perpetuating a problem that does not exist..

Ah, the old tard card makes an appearance once again.  Isn't it amazing that this piece of crap could function well enough to drive, to know to leave no evidence, and to keep quiet about his involvement, yet all of the sudden he is too mentally handicapped to face death?

time2prtee,
all people here,

I will reply with my thougths and feelings, and with quotes from the same source.

This case is, like all others, dramatic. For victims and for the murderer, for defense and for prosecutors, for executioners and for all people involved.

  "The people involved in these cases struggle with the tragic reality of an execution while seeing the suffering the 
  crime has caused at the same time," said Paula Sites, a staff attorney with the Indiana Public Defender Council.
  "What the offender has done is never going to be OK," she said. "But whether it's right to kill them for it is another
  question."

You will probably agree with the fact that Steven Timothy Judy suffered of some kind of classified or unclassified desease :
   - "He was a true sociopath".
   - "Two court-appointed psychiatrists, Dr. John Kooiker and Dr. Larry Davis, testified that they had examined Judy
      and that, in their opinions, he had an antisocial personality disorder."

I'm not a doctor but my analysis is the following :
one day this man is cool, and the next day he can become a monster. Then he regrets and cries for what he has done, and voluntarily chooses to die (perhaps a not irrevocable decision, made at a given time).
In my opinion, this kind of behavior is relatively close to "bipolar disorder", or "schizophrenia".
So I suggest you to have a close look on wikipedia on  "bipolar disorder" and "schizophrenia" articles.

I believe you can't kill without suffering from some mental or social kind of disease.
The only problem is that social diseases are not (all) classified. As a consequence, there are (or were in 80ties) no laws protecting people suffering of this kind of diseases.

Today, medecine does not know and is not still able to heal all diseases. But we must remain hopeful that unknown diseases will be identified, classified, diagnosed and that remedies will be found.
So I think people with unpredictable and - or dangerous behavior, suffering from an unknown kind of desease should be kept as long as necessary in adapted areas, with at least paliative treatment (waiting for curative treatment).

I am a Christian, and I am personally against euthanasia. I support life and will never support weapons.

God loves us all,

Yves


One day the victim is alive, the next he or she is not.  They have no time to reflect, to regret or cry for what has happened to them, they had the choice to die taken away from them by someone else...

I believe that the only diseases that threaten us today are Liberalism and soft-headed thinking....

What. A. Crock.......  ;D

Of course, such a fine upstanding woman would never lie to cover her ass.  As far as this investigator, no one finds it curious that he would have access on his own to a suspect, before an attorney was even provided?  If this supposed interview occurred in an interrogation room, then this "investigator" should have no problem providing copies of the recording....

"Love is stronger than hate :

Read about Stanley Tookie Williams III redemption (excerpt from wikipedia) :
Stanley Tookie Williams III (December 29, 1953 December 13, 2005) was a leader of the Crips, a notorious American street gang which has its roots in South Central Los Angeles in 1969. Once incarcerated, he authored several books, including anti-gang and anti-violence literature and children's books.
Williams refused to help police investigate his gang, and was implicated in attacks on guards and women, as well as multiple escape plots. In 1993, Williams began making changes in his behavior, and became an anti-gang activist while on Death Row in California. He renounced his gang affiliation and apologized for his role in founding the Crips, although still refused to help police investigate the gang. He also co-wrote children's books and participated in efforts intended to prevent youths from joining gangs.[1] A biographical TV-movie entitled Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story was made in 2004, and featured Jamie Foxx as Williams."




All that means is that Tookie Williams died a better person than when he came into prison.  You can thank the DP for that.  Do you really believe that Tookie would have changed had he not been facing the DP, or if he an opportunity someday to be released?  You are very naive if you do.

Clarence Allen Ray suddenly discovered his indian heritage when he felt it might keep him from being executed.  I am sure he is just the pride of the Choctaw Nation

Hello everybody

Please do read my reply to Dilligaf :

"How do you heal a murderer?  How do you prevent a murderer from committing additional murders while incarcerated? It is not an issue of money, and it is naive to believe that money can cure the lack of heart or soul."

I agree that it's not an issue of money.
The only way to heal a murderer and humanize him is to give him love.

For example, you can search for the story of Nicky Cruz.

God loves us all,

Yves


Try searching Clarence Ray Allen or Stanley "Tookie" Williams.  Love was not their issue, Hate was.

Both left a trail of dead bodies and broken families with zero regard to anyone but themselves. 

Many have killed because of love, so that is not the issue.  You can give all the love in the world, but if the recipient is not interested, it is wasted effort that could be spent on others more effectively.

Hello everyone !

I want to reply you with a list of trusted facts I believe in, and with my feelings.

Obviously, I'm here to give my opinion in the aim of changing opinions (because I believe that is a good thing).


Execute the Guilty ?

In USA, more than 244 convictions have been overturned nationwide because of DNA testing. However, it seems that DNA analysis was granted nation wide only recently (An Oklahoma law was adopted only in April 2013).

http://www.innocenceproject.org/fix/DNA-Testing-Access.php
http://www.innocenceproject.org/Content/DNA_Exonerations_Nationwide.php


Honor the victims ?

Enjoying the death and pain of inmates is not, in my opinion, a good way to honor the victim.
The victim did not ask you to enjoy the death of his/her murderer.
In some cases the victim is an anti.

Another related example :
An Iranian man who was to be punished by having acid dripped into one of his eyes won a dramatic reprieve on Sunday after the woman he blinded forgave him seconds before the punishment was to be carried out.
Source :
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iran/8673778/Iran-man-pardoned-from-acid-in-eye-punishment-at-last-second.html
Nothing is more beautiful than forgiveness.


Educate the uninformed ?

I think I received a good education from my parents - I'm lucky, others aren't.
You should use the word information if only you dealt with objective facts (without mixing them with personal feelings). Note that I recognize mixing my feelings with facts too (because of my human nature).


I'm said to love the inmates and to have no feelings for the victims ?

I will answer that I try to love all humans.
I'm sorry for the victims, for their family and their friends who endure the loss of a beloved person.
I'm sorry too for the murderers, because they will never be able to - or will have to realize they have made mistakes, because they will have to endure the memory of their acts until their death and because they will be all the more rejected by "good peope".


I'm not trying to deny facts.

Murderers should be kept in non adapted areas as long as required in order to ensure people safety. Money should be invested to heal them and humanize prisons instead of paying high prices to find "legal" lethal poisons. How can an inmate be healed without be humanized ?
Humanization should be encouraged. Otherwise, criminality will remain inside prisons. The suppression of the "last meal" is in that a big mistake, in my opinion.


Last point : Geneve conventions are supposed to protect military prisoners. Why are civil prisoners not protected by these international laws ? Why is death penalty still allowed in some of the America's states ?


I'm not judging none of you.
I'm only giving my opinion on human concepts and behaviors.


God loves us all.

Yves



Okay, I'll play.

Of the 244 convictions overturned, how many of those were condemned inmates?  How many sentences overturned were due to technicalities or procedural error as opposed to true innocnece?

All of the sentences overturned, for good or bad, reflect that our system, does in fact, work, including the DP.

Our  legal system is not designed to do what we believe the victim would want, or want the victim's family would want, it is based upon the needs of society.  So what the victim believed lacks relevance.

If an inmate is rejected by good people, it is the inmate themselves that caused this situation, not the good people.  The good people have responded to the actions of the inmate.  It truly is that simple.

How do you heal a murderer?  How do you prevent a murderer from committing additional murders while incarcerated? It is not an issue of money, and it is naive to believe that money can cure the lack of heart or soul.

The DP is allowed in some states because not every state has their collective heads up their asses...

we loved our children and still do all I can say is god will judge all of you who judge other people and may he be easy on his judgement for yall sake. all that matters is we know who we are and we choose to love each other and not judge people only god has the right to judge and this is my last post because yall are heartless and only care about judgeing someone what a shame no wonder people in this world have so much hate


Seems like you are judging everyone else who did not kill their children.  You are right about one thing though, God is the only one who can judge, and if I were you, I would be worried that He may do what the courts didn't....
