Gee is the UN making the same demand for China, Iran and Saudi Arabia to end their death penalty for “crimes” like witchcraft, converting from Islam to Christianity, insulting Islam or political dissent?

Maybe Obama will decree an Executive Order banning the death penalty in all 57 states

The United States should Get Out of the United Nations before the UN gains enough power to push us around.

We do not have enough prison space for these preps. There is NO such thing as Life With Out Parole, because some Lib judge can reverse it just as the do the DP.

HELP GET RID OF A RAPIST/KILLER OF A 8 YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL

Ashley Nichole (Nikki) Read 8 yrs old. Here is something you can do to help this 8 year old. She has waited 24 yrs for JUSTICE to be carried out. JUST IMAGINE IF SHE WERE YOUR DAUGHTER, GRAND DAUGHTER, SISTER, NIECE.

You do not have to live in TN to call our governor to request justice for Nikki.

TN Gov email is bill.haslam@tn.gov PHONE calls work best 615-741-2001 TN Gov .

This CHILD RAPIST/MURDER HAS RUN OUT OF ALL 20 YRS OF APPEALS, 2 JURIES HANDED DOWN THE DEATH PENALTY, TN GOV Halsam still has NOT SET AN EXECUTION DATE OR SIGNED A DEATH WARRANT, tell him to carry out his Constitutional duty!

This is going on 20 years of appeals. DNA & confession proved he did it.

He raped, strangled to death with her OWN SHOE LACES 8 year old Ashley ‘Nikki’ Read and then threw her body in the river. Even helped hunt for what was thought to be a missing child. Justice has been denied, her mom Debbie still grieves as there is no closure allowed by the Injustice system. She ended up having a nervous break down because it has taken so long and still NO JUSTICE for Nikki.

Yes, first clean up the torture of Christians in Muslim countries, the kidnap and rape of Christian school girls in Nigeria by Muslim jihadis, the burning of Christian churches in India and Indonesia, and the honor killings and beheadings in Saudi Arabia. Then we’ll talk about “inhumane treatment” of our most heinous killers who rape, stab and bury young girls alive.

Not only that, the U.S. should knock down its borders, open immigration to all who wish to enter, confiscate the property and resources of all companies and give them to the “people” , for their benefit, abolish the U.S. Constitution that prevents the federal government from taking care of the needs of all, ban private ownership of firearms and make the possession of them a capital offense.....

anything missing?

/s/

IMHO

“The United States should Get Out of the United Nations before the UN gains enough power to push us around.”

I believe that putting the United States under UN control is one of the goals of the people who helped bring Obama to power. If we have any success in the 2014 midterm elections the first thing we should demand of our conservative representatives is an immediate end to all UN influence on US law and the abandonment of the TransPacific Partnership and other UN treaties that are intended to abrogate US law.

When all of Islam gives up the death penalty for that part of humanity they consider to be “Kufir” (really not a capital crime with the rest of the world), and their insistence on “honor killings”, then the US could rethink their position on execution of known and convicted criminals, who have broken the laws of this nation, beyond any possibility of being reformed or redeemed.

Sorry but Sharia Law demands the death penalty for every sin committed by women and a couple that might be committed by men.

The United Nations seems to view the United States and Christianity as the enemy and ignores everything else like the dark side of Sharia Law.

Scary.

After the botched execution of Clayton Lockett

There's that word again.

How can they say it was botched? He's dead, isn't he? I personally think they should have buried him alive. That would have been a bit more fitting given the crime he committed.

According to Amnesty International UK, countries that still use death penalty include: Afghanistan, Chad, China, Japan, Jordan, United States of America, North Korea, Iran, and Iraq among others. Seems these people are more concerned about the murderer(s) than their victims.

I would love to see us get out of the UN and kick the remainder out of NYC.

However I suspect that the “real” endgame is: After Obama’s run in the White House, he will then be escalated to the top spot in the UN...there, he may have even more power than he does now.

The nightmare will continue.

The death penalty is implicitly Constitutional. We’ll let them live in your jails outside the US.

When I see a sentence begin with something absurd like "UN demands U.S...." I kind of stop reading right there.

I hope I live to those foreign grifters off our soil once and for all, with their little blue flags stuck up their collective arses.
