Smith already had a long record, including drug related convictions and one for kidnapping and false imprisonment.

Remember the good old days when kidnappers recieved the death penalty? Or, was it all just a dream...

this has to be repeated to every young person and women......if they try to bind you or lead you off to a car, YOU MUST FIGHT BACK......don't ever believe that they will just "let you go"......FIGHT BACK OR DIE TRYING.....( of course, this young girl thought the guy was an official of some kind...).

a fellow was speculating that if perhaps the adults in the Groene household had fought back , Joseph Duncan might have been over powered and subdued, and the four people he murdered and the young girl he traumatized would be alive and well today...

instead, he bound them, one by one, maybe even had them bind each other, with the promise that we "wasn't going to hurt them " if they cooperate......sure....

"I don't think you'll find that many liberals anywhere will come to this guy's rescue"

that's the trouble with liberals.....they're phoney-baloney hypcrites without backbone....

if they defend one murderer from the death penalty, they should defend ALL of them....not just the pretty boy Nobel prize wannabe's .....

where is their backbone?...their conscience?.....

but liberals are pretty much the same way everywhere....they like to look "sensitive" and "caring" but in the end, they just want to be in the lime-light so they can feel so superior to the rest of us yokels....

I have always said, and as God as my witness, if it were my child, there is not a corner on the face of this Earth the SOB could hide from me. They had better pray for the law to find them before I did. Carlie's mom showed tremendous restraint in that courtroom. I could have never done it, every guard in that room would've had to pull me off of him IF they could've!

We obviously have a different concept of liberalism. Although I don't share it, my parents were both liberals, and my wife is more liberal than I am. None of them fit your description.

My beef with liberalism has always been the philosophy of throwing money at problems. Typically, other people's money. More specifically, my money.
