I wonder if Joy Stewart, who was pregnant at the time McGuire raped and stabbed her to death, had a humane death?
Todd Willingham is enough for me to not really care. It is horrible that someone gets brutally murdered. Barbarism on the part of the state
(sanctioned by its citizens) is not really the answer, now is it?
We have a hell of a lot of prisons beds filled with people who do not belong in prison. Consequently, we have a hell of a lot of child rapists living
in society, registered as sex offenders and reviled by all who know about them.
It seems to me our entire system is just so far beyond illogical that it surpasses even "stupid". Just because the notion of the death penalty is
supported via the fallacy of mob mentality (we validate it by agreeing that it "is a grim necessity", despite that not being true) does not make it
"justice" in any sort of way. It is a continuation of barbaric primate behavior, validated by a majority of "reasonable people" believing it to
be just. But when you make a mistake, like in the case of Mr. Willingham....it negates the value of any justice that could ever possibly be served.
Just read his story and think about the hell that his life was. The agonizing torment that he endured. That is what we condone with the death
If we are going to release people into the public and then have to track them via website registry, we shouldn't be releasing them. Seems like there
are plenty of beds to never execute another person, and to house all the perverts that society doesn't want around. Instead, we fill those beds with
potheads, hot check writers, and illegal immigrants.
I wholly condemn what the State of Ohio did here. Not just for how excessively barbaric the act was, but because it was barbaric in the first place.
Killing....that is something that when done should be defensive, not premediated. Even if you have a government backing you.
