Family of Victims Shows No Sympathy at Killer's Execution
Good Morning America via Yahoo! News ^ | 7/24/14 | RHEANA MURRAY

Posted on 07/24/2014 10:49:31 AM PDT by Slings and Arrows

The family of two people murdered by a man sentenced to the death penalty by lethal injection showed no remorse when his execution dragged on for nearly two hours.

Jeanne Brown watched from the gallery at the Arizona State Prison Complex as Joseph Rudolph Wood, who shot her sister and father dead in 1989, died on Wednesday. She angrily brushed off his attorneys' complaints that Wood suffered during the execution.

"You don't know what excruciating is," Brown told the media after Wood was pronounced dead. "Excruciating is seeing your dad lying there in a pool of blood, seeing your sister lying there in a pool of blood. That's excruciating. This man deserved it."

The execution was not botched.

The point of the story is that the family of the victim did not show remorse? Why should the family of the victim show remorse?

Were it my family member who was the victim, I think I’d have asked if we could send out for some beer, pizza and chicken wings.

I think I’d have been laughing and giggling throughout each moan.

When I clicked on the link, there were 666 comments on the article. I thought that to be bizarre.

And what do the victims have to be remorseful over, really? Looks like Rheana Murray is the one who ought to be remorseful over denigrating the suffering of this family.

Well done, Executioner! Use succinylcholine next time. It’s faster but the victim is full aware as the demons harvest him.

“The family of two people ... showed no remorse”
Reporters are not very brilliant, and are incapable of thinking an original thought, but they ARE good with language, and choose words deliberately. This is what he meant to say, because in the mind of a liberal, the criminal is to be pitied, and the victim is just out of luck.

He should have been shot. The execution should fit the crime.

HOWEVER, I do not support the death penalty. It gives the state too much power. Look at how they are abusing Homeland Seurity, the TSA, IRS, etc.

If found giulty, throw them in a real prison for life. If later you find out you have the wrong guy - which happens all too often - it can be corrected.

Check out all those links on this forum on police abuse. Prosecutorial abuse by an ambitious prosecutor/politician wannbe is a lot harder to prove. They are more sophisticated than cops.

I talk to liberals regularly. They sincerely expect love and tolerance from other people, even after their actions, or their votes, have caused those other people irreparable harm, death, and destruction.

They are likewise sincerely shocked when told that they will eventually have to pay up with their own worthless carcasses.

If Democrats are not aware of the death and destruction they have caused, they are too stupid to be considered fully human.

If they are aware of the death and destruction they have caused, and they continue, then they are irredeemably evil; too evil to be considered human at all.

The only “botched” execution is one where the scumbag survives it, other than that, they all go according to plan as far as I’m concerned.

this was NOT a botched execution, this was a successful execution! He died. Success!

Check out "The Green Mile" movie, that is what Tom Hanks said.

If found giulty, throw them in a real prison for life. If later you find out you have the wrong guy - which happens all too often - it can be corrected.

I think the family member who watched him die also watched that man kill his 2 family members. pretty sure they had the right guy.

I just finished reading Champion Buffalo Hunter - the memoirs of Vic Smith in the wild west - he recounts how two teenagers raped and killed a woman and when they went to hang the boys they did such a sloppy job of tying their wrists that the brothers monkey-like climbed the hanging ropes into the tree. There were several well trained sharpshooters on hand, who eventually began to fire on them but from the ground it took at least several attempts before both were killed - and all the while the two verbally attacked the crowd below them. In their case their own mother turned them over to the mob for the execution. The old days!

Which means that they can then murder other inmates and prison staff with impunity, as nothing worse can be done to them.

The only legitimate interpretation of the constitution is original intent. During the founders time hanging was the death penalty norm. Maybe we should return to that method.

BTW I was a watching a movie about a guy named starkweather who went on a killing spree in 1958. The time from his arrest to his execution was just 17 months.

“The family of two people ... showed no remorse”
***

Odd choice of words. What did the victim’s family do for which they should be remorseful? They didn’t commit murder and they did not conduct the execution. Here’s a definition: Remorse is an emotional expression of personal regret felt by a person after they have committed an act which they deem to be shameful, hurtful, or violent.

Morality is not a value the Left/Democrat-Socialists hold in high regard. Things like skin color, global warming, victims’ rights ... these are the values the Left holds dear. The Left considers such things as honor, integrity, personal responsibility, morality and other Judeo-Christian values “archaic” and which have no place in their Utopian society.

I support the death penalty and believe this man paid the rightful price for his crimes. That said, to refer to his “daddy the devil” is over-the-top rhetoric. You can’t possibly know if he was a lost man or not. In his final words he gave thanks to Jesus Christ his savior. Now I do not presume every man who claims to be a Christian has actually been born-again, but since I didn’t know this man I won’t presume he wasn’t. Only The Lord knows for sure. Many of the most beloved men of Scripture were murderers. Moses killed an Egyptian. And because of his adultery, King David was responsible for the death of Uriah yet he was called “a man after God’s own heart.” The Apostle Paul was responsible for murders of the early Christians.

God’s grace can overcome and change the most heinous sinner. His blood can make the vile sinner clean, including men on death row. Were it not for Christ’s atoning death on the cross, every single sinning son of Adam would be on eternity’s death row right now.

Makes perfect sence. Plenty of sympathy for their own kind (the lawless), but no mercy for those of a contrary spirit (the guiltless). Not only showing no mercy, but actively targeting the innocent for destruction. Applies to any policy of the left.

The judge is right: the firing squad is the best way to go.

Rifles and bullets are cheap and ubiquitous. Any LEO can pull the triggers. Appeals about the means of execution are minimal, if any. Death within a half second is almost assured.

Using the firing squad should eliminate between 5-10 years of the appeals process, so justice is more timely.

Jeanne Brown said Wednesday marked the end of a long, painful journey for her family.

Having been in the same position as Jeanne, I feel very sorry for her, and can assure her that this is not the end of that long and painful journey. I hope she can move beyond the revenge she apparently feels to forgiveness. I've been there and I know that the journey's end is forgiveness, not revenge.

It's so easy to think that the murderer's execution will make you feel better. If it does, it's only for a little while. The pain of your loss never goes away just because the murderer is also dead.

While I still support the death penalty, revenge must have no part in it. It is a matter of justice.

I find these kinds of discussions on FR to be distasteful. They invariably bring out the worst reactions in people. It's common for people to say they would enjoy watching the murderer suffer a most painful death. The more painful, the better, they say. That's a horrible thing to say. The murderer is a child of God. He is someone God loves dearly. And if he goes to hell for dying unrepentant, God takes no delight in that, and neither should we. Could you actually tell God to his face that you want one of his children, someone he loves enough to die for, to suffer a horribly painful death?! While the execution may be necessary for justice's sake and for the protection of society, prison guards, and even other inmates, it is nothing to take pleasure in. It is just another chapter in the whole tragic situation.

Go ahead and flame me. Until youve experienced what Jeanne Brown has experienced, execution and all, and been on that journey to its end, you cannot comprehend. I will not be responding on this thread anymore. I've said my piece and have nothing more to add.

HOWEVER, I do not support the death penalty. It gives the state too much power. Look at how they are abusing Homeland Seurity, the TSA, IRS, etc.

Yeah, in recent years, I have been against capital punishment too, with very few exceptions such as high treason. Because of recent abuses and not having the ability to reverse the mistake, I do question the right/ability of the State to take a person's life outside of wartime or to stop an impending threat to others. In many ways, keeping a person cooped up for life is worse, he/she cannot go anywhere when they want, their lives are 99% regulated and what they can do is limited. Yes, they deserve to be there though but I'm just saying being cooped up is a huge punishment of its own.
