Funny how there wasn’t much moral pontificating over the immorality of the death penalty concerning Tim McVeigh, other than a few Jesuits doing a lackluster rendition of Jesus carrying the Cross on the morning of his execution, and that was a barely noticeable four line article buried in USA Today or Larry Brewer, convicted in the racially motivated murder of James Bird. Not that these POS’s didn’t get what they deserved, but libs think they’re slick at how they pick and choose their battles don’t they? Also, Dylann Roof is on death row, will Rage Against the Machine or the Beasty Boys get together to do a benefit concert to commute his sentience, perhaps do a smarmy rendition of Knocking on Heaven’s Door? Better chance of the Mets winning a World Series than that happening.
When CT eliminated the death penalty, the majority of people supported it bit the Dems in Hartford hated it and eventually repealed it, allowing Steven J. Hayes and Joshua A. Komisarjevsky, who in 2007 followed a women home, raped and murdered her and her two daughters and beat her husband and tied him up in the basement and lit the house on fire with them inside. Only the husband survived.
There was a book on this by Norman Mailer (a sympathetic treatment as I remember) that was actually quite good. I'll have to put it on my list to read again as it's been about 30 years since I read it the first time. Regardless, Gary Gilmore was a real piece of work and deserved the death penalty (which he insisted on being carried out).
Exactly.McVeigh,Zimmerman,the cop who killed the "Gentle Giant",the guy who shot up that black church in SC recently...leftists nationwide would have volunteered to flip the switch for all of them.Of course McVeigh and the church shooter deserve/deserved the hot squat but the Left,as usual,engages in selective outrage.
