Not Only Am I Pro – Death Penalty, I’m Anti – Lethal Injection Because It’s Not Harsh Enough

April 29th, 2013 by Michael Tabor

Can anyone think of a better way to exit this life than to have a great meal, lie down, go to sleep and pass away without pain or any sense of awareness? I have known the most wonderful, law – abiding human beings agonizingly suffer for years with cancer and yet knowing this our society or some people still find the putting to death of sociopathic murdering fiends to be inhumane. A disclaimer, let me be clear here, yes I am pro death penalty but we must be absolutely 100% certain that we have the right guy. If there is even a scintilla of doubt, we should commute the sentence until we know for sure.

Quite frankly, I think for a monster like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev ,  one of the the 2 Boston Marathon killers, lethal injection is not punishment enough. This sicko’s malicious and cowardly act killed 3 people and injured 264. I would not object at all if we meted out punishment that bordered on cruel and unusual i.e let him stew in an 8’ by 10’ or rather 6’ by 8’ cage and then electrocute him rather than the usual lethal injection because I think the former is painful & more befitting to the heinous crime he committed.
People know me as a liberal which I proudly acknowledge but my motto is that All Life is precious and each and every one of us is uniquely special, so if some twisted fiend elects to terminate a special, precious, and unique human being, then he, she or rather it must be put down !!!

So Whadayathink ? What do you think ? Some of my very good liberal friends disagree with me on this issue and are somewhat surprised that I hold this view but I am always pro – victim; you take a life then we as a society have a right to protect ourselves. Another objection I hear is that capital punishment is not a deterrent, which I concur, but these anti – death penalty folks are missing the point.

    Btw, I started reading the news and sort of got interested with politics right after the Nixon administration and as an adult have subsequently gone through all of our presidents in retrospect in an effort to understand our history, decisions made within context, etc. and for the life of me, never understood why George W. Bush commuted the sentence of the worst serial killer in our history – Henry Lee Lucas.Sadly, after much research, the reason was for political reasons (I won’t get into it here, too long… but you can google it) There were certain questionable death row inmates on his watch when he was governor in which he refused to commute a death sentence. W. Bush is the worst president I’ve known since I’ve been alive and I think he will go down in history as one of the worst ever.

    Strongly agreed. I’m very glad someone has my view points. We were respected a lot more by other countries and citizens when death by hanging, shooting, and even electrocution was present. Now a little injection to off you fast…well look at us now with how messed up society is and other countries stomping all over us! What is this?! Not the America I know. Your opinion is exactly on the spot!

    Agreed! Awe letal injection. I want to have one to end my awful life somehow. What is this a joke?? That’s why we are such a joke as a country having letal injection as a way of killing/putting to sleep murders and what not…
