Looks like we have a winner, here.You can state all the statistics you want, but neither this story, nor anything a person can say will change the fact that I am 100% in favor of the death penalty. I donít feel sorry for Mr. Willingham. Nothing written here convinces me that he was innocent.
As far as the death penalty costing more, I feel this is nothing but radical bullshit. I can buy a nice sturdy 20ft piece of rope for less than $20 at my local hardware store, and there are plenty of tall trees growing out of the ground natureís provided free of charge. What cost is the special housing they give these scum along with all the legal cost of providing them with representation, the cost of the trial and the cost of all the appeals these pansy asses cry out they deserve. Thatís where our system is flawed. What happened to the good ole days when a criminal was brought in and presented to the justice of the peace immediately, or at least the following day, and their fate decided on there and then. To hell with all that appeal bullshit.
David Spears is a great example of this pansy ass complete waste of my tax dollars. His attorney recently filed objections to one of the aggravating circumstances that the prosecutor cited in his intent to seek the death penalty. Spears' lawyer argued that the circumstance of "wantonly vile, horrible, or inhuman" is unconstitutionally vague. Prosecutors argue the motion is a standard filing in every death penalty case. He killed little Rowan Ford in November 2007 and his trial isnít scheduled until March of next year. This sorry ass piece of lard should be dead by now. He raped and killed this innocent young girl and threw her corpse down in a hole in the woods to let the wild animals eat what was left of her. Revenge would be torturing him the same. Justice would be hanging his fat ass in a tree so heíll no longer be a burden on society.
Using my tax dollars to support this asshole is where the justice system is flawed. The death penalty without all the radical bullshit is what would repair this system.
