Posted on 05/18/2011 9:17:04 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
It looks like the death penalty will remain an option in the Cheshire home invasion trial, as key lawmakers who supported abolition last year say they will cross over to the other side. Dr. William Hawke-Petit, the sole survivor of a highly publicized 2007 home invasion in which his wife and daughters were followed home, raped and murdered, has led a lobbying effort against abolishing the death penalty in Connecticut.
State Sen. Edith Prague, who voted in favor of abolition last year, said she will switch sides this year. She made a strong statement to watchdog website CT News Junkie. They should bypass the trial and take that second animal [Komisarjevsky] and hang him by his penis from a tree out in the middle of Main Street, Prague said.

If she was talking about Zero I am all for it!
Mugged Liberal Syndrome?
Sadly, it was only when her family was affected that she was moved to change her position. This is the height of self-interest, just like most of the American people.
She looks to be about 65... a slow learner, but at least she finally learned. What’s the saying, “There’s no conservative like a liberal who has been mugged”?
The US has been such a rich and secure country that common sense hasn’t been necessary for the survival of the liberal classes and their families. They’ve had the luxury of a fantasy world. I fear that this luxury will evaporate in the coming decades.
“A Former Opponent of the Death Penalty Now Favors Hanging - by the Penis”
I have often suggested this as a punishment for some sex offenders. It is far more humane than what my father has suggested.
They just don't do "cruel and unusual" like they used to.
I believe it was William F. Buckley (correct me if I’m wrong) who once famously said, “A Conservative is a Liberal who’s been mugged.”
I prefer the manner of revenge exacted on the murderous perp by Gerard Butler in “Law-Abiding Citizen”
It’s a true but sad statement, though man maybe God’s greatest of creations there are some who are so vile that they aren’t worth a dead dog.

While painful, this would not deter this animal, or others from committing a crime like this again in the future. Kill the animal, face the evil, confront the predator - and kill them.
Only when he is dead; can we rest assured that THIS animal will never hurt another person again. Another animal might arise from the slime and do something like this again - and once again society will have to use their backbone, face evil; and destroy it.
My understanding is that they had the victim tied limb to limb by rope to 4 horses. A rope was secured tightly around the privates of the victim, and attached to a fifth horse, who walked forward to draw the entrails from the victim, who then got to watch them burn, if he survived.
THEN, the other four horses walk forward, ripping the body into quarter sections.
I like a more creative method
Clamp their ‘junk’ in a vice, hand them a knife, and set the building on fire
Execution is only a deterrent when it is done while the crime is fresh in the minds of those effected by it.
Let a murderer sit in prison for 20 years before execution and people forget why he was put there. California has 650 people on death row, 98% of them will die a a natural death. How is that a deterrent?
A subject given the death penalty should get a new trial 6 months after the first one. New lawyers, a new judge, a new Jury, if found guilty and sentenced to death a second time he /Her should be executed within 24 hrs.
I can’t imagine the pain, suffering and anguish this poor man had to endure. What a horrific loss. Leave it to we humans to figure creative ways to do despicable things to each other. May the great I AM comfort him and his surviving family.
This is another case where I wonder, “how does God hold his wrath so long,” followed by “I’m glad He is infinitely more compassionate than I am.”
Impossible...physics my friend, physics.
Liberals are indeed “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrites, but I don’t see that the State Senator knew the people involved?
This is such a horrifying crime. Two thugs who are pure evil targeting a hard-working, law-abiding family and following them home to a seemingly safe neighborhood. People can’t comfort themselves by saying, “That could not happen to me.”
Liberals exist in their own isolated bubbles from which they wish to impose rules for everybody else. Occasionally, reality pokes its ugly nose past seal of their inner sanctum, and the intellectually honest ones at least do take notice.
I used to have a photo from Iran/Iraq war showing this. they used four vehicles.
teachers who molest students should be hung by the breasts.
This is the worst kind of liberal emotionalism. Last year, she opposes the death penalty. This year, she supports execution without a trial.
I would suggest that there is a reasonable middle ground.
Ouch! That has got to hurt.
Agree completely. Any argument that delves into 'the deterrent effect' should treat it as nothing more than a happy coincidence when and where it's established. My thoughts on capital punishment generally run along two streams...first, capital punishment is n fact, life affirming. If the penalties we exact as a society are to reflect our collective view of the severity of the infraction, the failure to exact the most severe penalty possible in effect devalues the life of the victim(s).
Second, I think capital punishment ought to be on the table for any crime in which the victim would have been justified in using lethal force to resist the crime. In such cases, it is the criminal who has openly placed the value of their own life below those of the fruits of the crime; that they did not get killed during the commission of the crime is merely a sad accident for the victim.
If it were up to me they would have to find some other slow death way to hang him, because he would have already been force-fed his penis and anus.
LOL! I knew I stole that idea from someone.
Seriously though, you are absolutely correct, especially your first sentence in the second paragraph.
Something to do with abandoned house, floor, nail, rusty razor blade, and fire...?
give ‘em to jigsaw!! he comes up with some great traps.
Now, transfer that to some "traitor" to the crown, and don't shoot the guy, first.
To call it cruel and unusual doesn't BEGIN to describe it.
Sometimes there are things you wish you could unlearn.
Isn’t she one of those gun-grabbing Democrats that infest this state’s government?
What a violent statement from her. Maybe she needs to be held for psychiatric evaluation. For her safety and the safety of the community, of course...
I've always thought we could farm out our death row inmates to a Bolivian or Thai or Nigerian prison, say at $30,000 per annum, and keep them alive on the chance that the eye witness will have a change of heart. It's a plus for the Bolivians, it's no fun for the prisoner, and it is reversible in case some mouth breathing DA committed a pooch screw 'cause he/she wanted to be governor.
It might actually be a deterrent if some gang banger from Chicago thinks he could spend life in some Thai lockup, a long way from his homies.

Would not mind if all female and male rapists and sex predators were hung from trees by their genitals.
No, not the high school kids where one’s a year older than the other. The real, honest to goodness, sex criminals.
Good for her! Now remove her voting privileges for being stupid for so long.
So, would the penis hold the entire body weight or break off with the guy still alive?
actually Prague’s in her 80’s. been in the senate forever. she’s actually pretty left of left, and this represents a hueg change in he rposition. i’ve met her several times, and she’s a ball of energy. i disagree with her politically, but consider her a good person.
In San Francisco, this is called foreplay.
The secret is a short clasp knife and dental floss. Seriously.
"Hanging, drawing, and quartering" was the traditional English punishment for high treason (as opposed to low or petit treason). William Wallace, a bunch of Catholic priests, and Guy Fawkes were hanged, drawn and quartered (although Fawkes escaped the worst of it by leaping from the ladder after the rope was placed, breaking his neck and dying instantly). The law remained on the books well into the 19th century, but was last applied to the Cato Street Conspirators - during the reign of George IV.
More like in the next couple of years.
If someone deserves to be hung by the penis, then I say execute them, and deservedly so.
This mutilation of men doesn’t sit well with me, because it plays into the mindset of the exhibited radical feminist mantra.
When’s the last time you heard of someone suggesting a woman’s tits be cut off? When’s the last time you heard of someone suggesting a woman’s genital area be mutilated?
Whenever you hear of a woman cutting off a man’s private parts, there’s a group of people out there who think it’s rather funny. Aw, he must have deserved it.
Well, I don’t think anyone deserves that, men or women. If a person has done something that merits this type of punishment, then they merit being executed and I’m all for that.
Spare the future victims, period! Don’t play into the feminist ant-male agenda, even if a case could be made in certain instances.
Just fry the asshole, and the quicker the better, be they male or female.
Until recently, I was a supporter of the DP. After realizing how much corruption we have in our justice system, I have come to the point where I no longer trust the government with the power to take a life.
And why should the government be able to decide that one life has more value than another? If a criminal kills a Federal employee, they qualify for the DP. Kill a cop...ditto.
So we have the possibility of a situation where Criminal "A" is speeding away from robbing the local 7-11, T-bones the mailman's little truck, and the mailman dies as a result. Meanwhile, criminal "B" has invaded your (or my) home, raped, tortured, and killed the wife.
Guess which one is almost guaranteed to face the DP in court? I don't like the idea of the government (Federal OR State) deciding that government lives are more valuable than the lives of the "little people".
You would be surprised, however, at how many people have never seen the process, let alone had to do it, miles from anywhere, with cold, 'wet', hands and stiff from motionless hours in a tree stand. (My father would whisper, "Did you come to hunt or dance?" if I shifted a little.)
It's wicked cold, during deer season, and a 12ga. slug kicks hard when you're 12. Illinois didn't permit rifles for deer hunting. I don't know if they ever changed.
It's a comment on something that I haven't been hunting since I came back from Overseas, going on forty years, now...
