High-profile Democratic representatives came out against the death penalty on Saturday after a man who brutally raped and buried a 16-year-old girl alive was finally executed in Indiana under the Trump administration.

Orlando Hall was executed by the state on Thursday evening for his part in kidnapping, raping, and murdering Lisa Rene

"placed a sheet over Rene’s head and hit her in the head with a shovel. Rene screamed and tried to run away, but the men tackled her and took turns beating her with the shovel"

Prominent Democrats – including half of ‘the Squad’ – reacted to the execution of Hall by protesting

Georgia State House Rep. Beth Moore criticized the death penalty, branding it “nothing more than government-sanctioned revenge,”

On Friday, CNN’s Keith Boykin had also condemned Hall’s execution, attempting to portray it as a racial issue.


There will never be a day when the death penalty is anything other than utterly cruel and barbaric. - Clint Smith

In 1994, (the thing named above) kidnapped, raped, beat, and buried a 16 year old girl alive.
Of all of the executions that take place, prominent Democrat leaders come out to use this piece of absolute sh*t as their example of why the death penalty is "cruel and barbaric". Georgia State House Rep. Beth Moore calls it "government-sanctioned revenge". Not only that, but some, like CNN's Keith Boykin, tried to act like his execution was racist.
They've crossed a line. This is too much. There is no excuse for defending someone like this. The Democrats' reactions to this is beyond politics, it's outright evil. These people are evil.

It truly is insane.

It would not surprise me at all to find out those crying foul when justice is served have some horrific Epstein level blackmail on them.

Heinous crimes like this are an immediate one way ticket off the planet as far as I am concerned.

This isn't a murderer. This is someone who repeatedly beat, raped, and buried a young girl alive. His relatively peaceful execution by lethal injection can never be called "cruel" in comparison to what he did.

And 26 years later, justice was served.

Why did it take 26 years?

Were there lots of appeals? Was there any doubt at all? Was new evidence forensically combed?

You need to go through all this before taking anyone’s life. Anyone’s!!

So they're ok with insulting, attacking, and even killing Trump supporters, but think what happened to this guy is bad?? Well, just tell them he voted for Trump, problem solved. lol

Seriously, though, # this guy.

You're making the point of those you're arguing against. Sounds like this really is about revenge for you.

Not really the point. To be against the penalty doesn't make exceptions. Government #s up all the time. Then we have scumbags like kermela that commit crimes on behalf of the state. At least if you are the victim of either of these circumstances, you have a shot at getting it corrected if the government can't kill you first.

Clint Smith - quick search shows tweets going back over a year about the death penalty.

Ayanna Pressley - wrote a bill last year opposing it.

Jamaal Brown - tweets going back several months about it.

Tlaib - comments going back over a year.

But yes, get yourself all worked into a lather about how they’re just now talking about it.

They are just defending one of their own. I can see anyone of these BLM and Antifa terrorist doing the same to any Trump supporter.

Clearly, a death penalty allows a dangerous precedent. You cannot revive a dead person if there is a mistake made in law, and such do occur.

It means that the state becomes a murderer as well. The purpose of justice is the protection of society, not revenge.

Two wrongs don't make it right.

Tax payers had to flip the bill to keep scum like that alive for 26 years before justice is served.

Maybe we should have a jury type system set up for the young adults to take the lives instead of the state.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but all wrongs don't leave a right.

So, basically they let this POS off the easy way. Kinda like shooting an injured horse, so it doesn’t have to endure anymore pain.

That’s why the death penalty is just short sighted stupidity.

You want to really punish a man for heinous crimes? Then make him live in his own head for the rest of his natural life.

The only "right" committed this time though was killing that murderer. Good riddance.

What did you expect? This is the DNC's base voters. DNC = organized crime.

My imagination goes to some dark places trying to come up with a proper punishment for a monster like this.
Some very ugly dark places.

Perhaps the American government should be of the people, by the people, and for the people, instead of a separate oppressive autocracy. Perhaps the government should not shoot people just going about their lives, even if you can argue that the people may have deserved it? Perhaps the government should enable and engage those disaffected people instead of isolating them?

In a society where there are many millions of people living in poverty, that is dangerous to the civil order. Especially if they organize and have a 'crusade' against the authorities. The government needs to realize that a booming economic statistic is useless to those who cannot participate.

Also, with its focus on capital, why do right-wing governments always eventually drive economies downwards? Thatcher's monetarism, Brexit, and in the USA Trump's economic policies, the stock market crashes of 1907 (Roosevelt - Republican), the crash of 1929 (Coolidge & Hoover - Republicans), Black Monday 1987 & 1989 crash (Reagan - Republican), and the 1990 Recession (Bush - Republican), the 2007 -2009 Financial Crisis (Bush - Republican). Can you see the pattern emerging here?

Come on, these guys are supposed to be all about the money, why are they so crap at it?

You can tell there is no "wrong" in this case when you see the kind of twisted sick people protesting against it.
