I see my colleage and dear friend xaos has yet to realize how horribly shockingly a murderers nature truly is, so I'll go ahead and break it down for
Imagine yourself in a room, 12 feet long by 6 feet wide. You're sitting on a metal bed bolted to the floor with a thin foam cushion. The only other
things in the room are a table and a chair, a sink and a toilet. There is no window, only a small faint light on the ceiling. You spend all of your
time in this room, you have no choice. This is your dining room, your den, your bedroom and your bathroom. You are allowed to read and write letters
in this room. You cannot entertain guests in this room, you must go somewhere else for that, in a room with a mesh screen for you to sit behind,
where you are constantly watched over. Even though this is your bathroom, it has no shower stall or bathtub, but once a week you are allowed to leave
this room to take a shower. Your days are spent inside this room reading, thinking and worrying. You aren't in any ordinary room, you're in a cell
on death row. Death could be by firing squad, lethel injection, the gas chamber or electric chair. Chances are you've been in this room for many
years and will be for many more. Once all the appeals have failed, it soon is time, and you will be moved to a holding cell. There you will be
offered your final mean, of your choice. Your last visitors arrive, first your lawyer, your family members and at last a preist who prays with you.
You take your final glance around the room, as you are lead to another room close by, the execution room. A few prison officials are present to
witness your execution. In a matter of moments it's over.
You could have been Gary Gilmore, Ted Bundy or Charles Brooks, all famous serial killers. Maybe you were the first women to die by lethel injection,
Marcie Barfield, or the first women to die by the electric chair, Martha Place. Whoever it was well deserved this punishment, in fact, some readily
accepted it in comparison to spending the rest of their lives in a jail cell, but many people who did deserve the death penalty did not recieve it.
In August 1969, seven people died at the hands of a serial killer including eight month pregnant acress Sharon Tate. This was the result of a bloody
rampage by Charles Manson.
Between 1976 & 1977 David Berkowitz terrorized New York City killing 6 woman and wounding 7 more. Berkowitz, A.K.A Son of Sam, a mail man, took the
orders to kill from his dog Sam, and is now serving 25 years to life in jail.
Here's a kicker for everyone:
Between 1978 and 1991 Jeffrey Dahmer murdered and raped the dead bodies of 15 young men, cutting of their body parts and storing them in
serveralplaces. When the police raided his house the found a human head in the fridge, 3 heads in the freezer, a human heart in the refridgerator
freezer compartment, a blue barrel jammed with body parts and bones, 2 skulls in a computer packaging box, 3 skulls and some bones in a filing
cobinet, 2 skulls in a kettle and a penis and some hands in another kettle.
These criminals and many others are sitting in a jail cell. These sick psychotic people who took the lives of others get the luxery of cable T.V.
They are permitted 15 magazines, 25 books, 4 newspapers, 15 personal letters and a bible. They are allowed to participate in weightlifting, leather
work and learning to use an IBM computer. They can also study to get a University degree, all using public tax money. They are allowed to smoke.
God help us that a Sadomistic, Necro philliac should have to go through nicotine withdrwel. Many of these men, like Charles Manson, are eligible for
parole after 20 years. What happened to an eye for an eye?
To state an eye for an eye is not required, you are saying some humans are valued more than others. To say, imply, hint, or even ponder upon such a
notion is far beyond facist and supremacist, it's "racist". Yes, those who oppose capital punishment are in fact racist if they call "equality"
outdated. The negative has made clear his understanding and love of American values.
Is equality not one of America's most common values?
Or has that all changed?
