Just What Constitutes ‘Humane’ Execution?
PJ Media, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/18/2014 4:37:37 AM

Dennis McGuire, convicted in 1989 of raping and murdering a young, pregnant woman, was executed in Ohio last night. His death took 26 minutes from the time the experimental cocktail of lethal drugs was injected until he was pronounced dead. The two drugs used — midazolam, a sedative; and hydromorphone, a morphine derivative — were employed because penobarbital, the drug formerly used by the state, was unavailable due to a manufacturer’s refusal to sell the drug for the purposes of execution. McGuire’s lawyers, trying to get a stay of execution from a federal judge, warned that the drugs might cause “air

A humane execution would be using the same method to kill the murderer that he or she used on their victim.Or you could clip their spinal cord the way they do in abortions on defenseless babies.

It´s insane that the left would give animals more legal protection than a human baby.

The left is always trying to prove the´re morally superior than conservative mean spirited people.

These cold blooded murder cases with undeniable proof should get these people swift and severe justice. I don´t think it´s a coincidence that murders are taken lightly anymore when the criminal gets better treatment in the eyes of the law than the victim and their families.The culture of abortion has dumbed down the value of life.

Personally, I would prefer they bring back the gallows and forget about all this "humane" execution baloney. The thought of swinging from a rope has got to strike fear into the heart of even the most callous criminals.

While my faith holds all life sacred, some people are just flat out evil and need killing. With that in mind, I suggest a cranial infusion of 125 grains of the element plumbum, projected at 1500 feet per second. Death is quick and certain.

Frankly, I don´t really care how much he suffered.

All I can say, is that if anyone raped my wife, I would make sure that a portion of his anatomy would cease to function as intended.

And I would perform that particular surgery without anesthetic, and without any regard to his feelings, physically or mentally.

Just in case liberals have trouble understanding my comment, let me reiterate: I do not give a damn whether rapists suffer or not.

A humane execution causes death swiftly and irrevocably. Aside from the carnival atmosphere, the French guillotine probably is the most humane.

For those who argue that executions are fundamentally inhumane, I say suck it up. What these murderers did was often far worse, and the victims and their families live in horrific, inhumane conditions knowing that these monsters who tortured and killed their loved ones, live in comfortably incarcerations, well fed, medically treated for decades, on the public´s dime. That these monsters may escape, or worse be released into society to kill again because of some moronic bureaucrat who decides on a whim to release them.

We all die. Some sooner than they should. When it is at the hands of a human monster, that human monster shouldn´t be treated better than the suffering victims.

The crime happened in 1989...by my calculator Mr. McGuire sat in prison for 24 years. (People retire from careers that don´t last that long.)

After that much time, he thought he wasn´t going to die at all. Too bad, sucker, I hope your execution hurt you as much as your crime hurt your victim, her baby, her family and finally your family who lived 25 years of humiliation...all of that pain because of you.

A double tap to the head would be inexpensive, quick, and humane.
It does, however, put a burden on the mental health of the executioner to be able to deal with the act.
I, however, would have no compunction whatsoever, and hereby volunteer my services, with just reimbursement of expenses.

If need be I can take one of my pets to the vet and he could end her life in seconds. Next time take these murders to the vet. S/O.

I do not care anything about this murderer. I am sorry for his family. What he did to that woman and her baby is the story, that is the injustice. Maybe a large bullet to the head or heart is the answer.

convicted in 1989 of raping and murdering a young, pregnant woman, was executed in Ohio last night.

So, how long did it take the young mother to die? What torment and pain did she feel as she was being raped and then executed?

And the debate is over whether or not he was executed humanely? Perchance he would have rather had done to him what he did to the young woman.

Sorry, I have no sympathy for how a murderer is executed.

You know how they do a saline abortion - something I think a pro-choice person would consider humane ...

Fill a vat with the same saline solution and drop the convict in fully conscious, and seal it.

Takes about an hour to kill the baby. How long would it take to kill an adult?

If a society is to have a death penalty at all then simple, swift, and sure is best. That makes the firing squad the choice.

It is cheap, takes no special facilities which have to be maintained year after year, and the multiple shooters ensure it works as intended.

Arguing about "humane", writing learned tracts, and filing endless lawsuits about drug cocktails, etc. only benefits those doing the arguing, writing, and filing. It helps no one else, not the criminal and not the public.

Hillary Clinton all but erased
from tragic story of Benghazi
Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 5:55:34 AM     Post Reply
A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events. In the early post-Benghazi days on Capitol Hill, Republicans tried to pry “what did she know and when did she know

LUDLOW, Mass. — Eric Lesser was shaking hands with diners in a Portuguese restaurant last week when he spotted the owner of Manny’s TV & Appliances. “Oh, I’ve got to get a picture,” Mr. Lesser eagerly said, draping his arm over Manny Rovithis, whose low-budget commercials have run for decades in Western Massachusetts. Mr. Lesser’s giddiness about meeting the local celebrity had not faded when he sat down for lunch. “Awesome,” he said. Although Mr. Lesser spent much of the last six years in the company of President Obama and Washington hotshots, now, as an earnest, hug-prone 29-year-old candidate for the Massachusetts

Scot Gillies has a good idea of the kind of horse people who will fit in at Gryffindor Farm, the small barn he helps manage in Lexington, Ky. So his advertisements for new boarders spell it out in detail: Owners must be "laid-back," "happy" and above all, "drama-free." Mr. Gillies, a marketing consultant by day and a horse owner himself, says that during his 14 years in the equestrian world, "I´ve seen the full range of drama that is associated with horse people."

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites. The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.” The Topeka, Kansas-based group is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, and has a long history of anti-Semitic

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

In other words, they’ll let the often-cautious FBI engage in intelligent and legitimate policing to prevent attacks against innocent Americans.

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications.

Dartmouth College students recently staged an overnight sit-in the office of their president Philip Hanlon. They had over seventy demands. Apparently, they grew out of their alleged suffering at the hands of “racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, trans-homophobic, xenophobic, and ablest structures.” Translating into English, the students elaborated, “Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack” — suggesting conditions similar to the teen-aged Marines who stormed Fallujah in November 2004, or perhaps the iron-workers who tip-toe on girders 1,000 feet above Manhattan, or an acquaintance of mine whose work clothes reveal that he pumps out quite messy rural

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated.
