Some government agencies have members who would be eligible.

It's fun to wish this upon criminals, but when the US government is criminalizing everyone, then maybe just a slap on the wrist and being sent to sit in a corner is more preferable.

This happened a month ago it seems. He had a conference apologizeing a day later saying he meant to say Maine girls because Maine is 95% white. I saw more confederate flags up there than the south. And they are so poor and lack industry that the drug problem is insane. Bath salts came from Maine. That's even why weed is medical/legal up there.

But yea. Maine is the oldest and whitest state in the union.


Today, he talked about the guillotine for traffickers and the guessing game. I did read the article. Earlier this month he talked about who he thought was bringing drugs into Maine.

Interesting to find bath salts came from there.

That's ' WHY', weed is medical/legal up there? They have a successful medical marijuana program and some propose some plan for recreational use through dispensaries. This is not the only state like that and I don't think this is WHY.

Taking politics and crime out of the issue, what is it about the guillotine that screams barbaric? I mean, it is 100% effective and death is instantaneous; meanwhile, current methods of execution (lethal injection & electric chair) can take several minutes and, in some cases, multiple attempts.

For the record, I am opposed to the idea of the death penalty; however, if we are going to use it, then shouldn't it be carried out in least expensive, yet the most humane, method possible?

I am not really sure. It fell out of favor for some reason. Yes, in states where it is done, of course it should be the most humane way possible.

eta: There are debates about the guillotine all over the internet. I am not going in depth here, but many reasons are cultural, some historical and the 'gas chamber' is actually less likely to cause pain. No matter what the method, the road to execution can never be inexpensive, even of the end method costs a little less.

Maine Governor Paul LePage thinks the guillotine is an appropriate punishment for drug traffickers. Drug trafficking, and deaths caused by dealers are at an all-time high and I am not surprised lawmakers are scrambling to deal with an increase in heroin overdoses. However, he also had this to say:

source


"What I think we ought to do is bring the guillotine back," he told WMOV. "We could have public executions and have, you know, we could even have (guessing) which hole it falls in."


Ok, that's creepy and sick, dystopian in nature. He goes on:


"These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty," he said. "They come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, then they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave."


I can't believe this man was elected to be a Governor. He either has always believed these things, or he should be evaluated by a psychologist.


If drugs weren't illegal then lowlifes wouldn't be selling them, because there wouldn't be any money in it.

It isn't the Bible thumpers right to decide what people should do or should not do in their leisure time.

I thought prohibition would have taught them somthing about human nature..... Guess not!

It's amazing how many times this needs to be repeated until it starts to sink in, but NAAAAAH let's just keep doing the same thing over and over again. I'm sure that is supposed to end up producing different results eventually.


Lol, ya....they heard it was a 1 in 1 billion chance.

So they are hoping after a billion years it will finally work

If we include the CIA and other agencies in the "War on Drugs", I guess we could bring back the guillotine! :p

Hey. Don't be knocking the guillotine. Right solution, wrong target in my opinion.

Our motto in the National Guillotine Party is...

'It worked in France'

He must be taking tips from Trump's outrageous remarks. Sick puppy.

As a Mainer, I laugh at most of what people think goes on up here


Yeah, the dude's off his rocker a bit- but honestly it's a nice change of pace from the average politically correct "I have no opinions other than what my secretary says people will vote for" people who run things. They just say one thing and do another.

At least with a nutter like this guy, you know that he actually wants to do what he says.

I've got no problem with a guillotine being used for public executions- but you better be damn sure you're executing true criminals- like bankers and politicians.

Strange times these with presidential candidates talking about shooting people in the streets while being cheered on and governors crying for public executions by guillotine. Maybe he thinks he is the governor in Walking dead. a reply to: reldra

I wonder if this includes Big Pharma and their stock holders... and those that get kick backs from said conglomerates?

Big Pharma isn't as big as you'd think.

Uncle Sam recently took a big, ol' dump on their earnings by rescheduling opiates. Because opiates on the black market were cutting into Uncle Sam's Afghani heroin sales.

Big Pharma plays second fiddle to Uncle Sam's left pocket.

After the comments on out of State drug dealers "impregnating white girls" the move to recall him begin.

petitions.moveon.org...

This guy seems to have really slipped a cog or two, might make a good VP candidate for Mr. Trump however. The two loose cannons could make a tour to every State like the P.T. Barnum Circus. Mr. LePage has made some audacious attempts at changing the Maine State Constitution as well to stop future legislation that would change any laws he manged to pass, but now has lost support from his own party

D-Money, Smoothie & Shifty should give up dealing drugs and find a way to get rich with their incredible fertility. The ability to impregnate a young white girl on every other drug run is quite impressive.

So Relda, what is your opinion of what should be done to heroin dealers? We are not talking about selling pot. I know kids whose lives have been ruined by heroin and a couple that have died from overdoses. I feel the guillotine is too easy of a sentence for these scum. Gov. Lepage is not a typical politician. He says what he believes, not what he thinks you want to hear. Yes he can be crude and crass, but he is honest. He left an abusive home as a kid and grew up on the streets, became a successful businessman and twice elected Governor. So please look into the whole story instead of the typical knee jerk liberal reaction to a headline or 10 second soundbite.

Perhaps a not too radical treatment for the king pins ....but it think they should draw and quarter anyone in any government agency in collusion with the underworld first.....
