Reloading the firing squad
Washington Post, by Tammy Bruce

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/24/2014 8:08:11 AM

Has the left’s attempt to use the lethal-injection process to ban the death penalty backfired? Consideration of firing squads for implementing the death penalty is not a fringe issue and would bring back the humaneness the left claims it wants in the process. As often as I can, I laud the importance, value and decency of the death penalty. As a feminist, I’ve spent a great deal of my adult life as an advocate for women, educating on violence against women and agitating for justice for women in a system that far too often forgets the victims on the receiving end

Several methods come to mind. Hanging is quick, electric chair not so much, but a great deterent. The gas chamber is particularly nasty, but effective.

My personal fav is more of an idea than an actual practice tho. For convicted child molesters and rapists, the guilty is placed in a room with 10 male relatives of the victim, all armed with baseball bats. Door is closed and re-opened after 30 minutes.

THAT, would be justice.

The Wa Poo is printing a piece by Tammy Bruce? Maybe there is some hope for the commie rag, after letting go of ol´ Ezra Klein. Now, as soon as they release Dana "Panties" Milbank, and Dan "What Happened To My" Balz, things might improve even more.

A short ride at the end of a long rope off the back of a tall horse works for me. Firing squads are a waste of good ammo.

Washington Times, not Post.

Sorry, #3. It ain´t never gonna happen. Bezos is a LibSuperStar and that is one reason I will NOT use Amazon. I will not fill the coffers of our enemies.

A little extra work and one can find the store specific site instead of funding our demise.

If quick and humane is the goal, nothing beats the guillotine. It would be poetic justice if the libs whined so much about lethal injection that it brought about quick, effective and fool proof executions. And as a bonus, we can assure Muzzie terrorist that there head will be buried and their bodies feed to swine. Oh my, there goes all those virgins in paradise!

Bravo, Tammy!

My then 24 year old cousin was the first person killed in the Long Island RR massacre, a racially motivated crime in which only white people were targeted. Due to NY´s lack of the death penalty, mass murderer Colin Ferguson lives a pretty good life in prison while my aunt and uncle´s taxes pay for the upkeep of the man who murdered their son and numerous others.

Gee number 6 the guillotine is too messy. I´m sure the EPA would object. Also, those suggesting a firing squad must remember that lead bullets are also on the no no list.

I´ve always thought that putting the murderer into a glass tube, then filling the tube with water, would be an effective and inexpensive solution. Also, since starvation was allegedly "humane" for Terry Schaivo, wouldn´t starvation be "humane" for condemned prisoners, too?

#7, I´m sorry for your loss, and your ongoing pain of the continued existence of that piece of human garbage.

I´ve heard/read somewhere that a firing squad consists of x number of rifles, with one rifle loaded with a blank cartridge. This is to prevent the possible later guilt feelings among the exectioners, since you may have been the one with the blank.

Meanwhile, in MA, a man who murdered his wife has been "granted" --by a judge-- hormonal treatments and ultimately a "lop-it-off-a-him" sex change surgery, because not to do that would be "cruel and unusual punishment."

Now, the way the Bible puts it, as a society declines rapidly into the pit of degradation, people will "call good evil, and evil good."

In Nietzsche-speak, it´s a "transvaluation of values" (values-- a term he coined) which he did not believe would necessarily be a good thing.

This is also how mass murders are kept in the lap of luxury in GITMO.

Punishment is supposed to fit the crime. We have an inversion of this precept. The victim is gone, long consigned to oblivion, and the monster is elevated to a new sort of precious victimhood.

I think the firing squad is best.

The redundancy of multiple shooters ensures it will work as intended. I would use ten rifles.

There is no permanent equipment or site to maintain.

A test is easily conducted to make sure all is ready.

IOW it is swift and sure and simple.

Ins country, only persons convicted of murder face the death penalty. I´m pretty sure the autopsy determines how long the victim suffered before expiring at the hands of the murderer.

Whatever method used in the execution should take at least as long as the victim suffered.

That is why I had no sympathy for the man who recently took 26 minutes, under medication and unconscious, to expire. His family wants to sue because that was "cruel and inhuman" punishment...have they no feeling for the family of his victim?? His family members should suffer for not turning him into authorities sooner.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene. Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video.

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

WASHINGTON — The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said. The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said. An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire

Very few of the young Americans who carried President Obama to electoral victory in 2008 have chosen to follow him into public service, The New York Times reports on Monday. Which made us wonder who inspired the current Congress to seek office. The answer? Two Republican stalwarts. There are a lot of caveats that should be applied to the Times story, not the least of which is that most candidates for office tend to skew a little older than the 18-year-olds that cast their first votes six years ago. But regardless, Jason Horowitz writes, "[u]nlike John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan,

The ironworker who parachuted from One World Trade Center said his death-defying leap was “amazing,” but it’s not something he would try again. “No, I wouldn’t do it again,” said James Brady, 32, who BASE jumped off the roof of the tallest building in the nation last September, along with two fellow thrill-seekers. “It’s amazing,” he told The Post when asked to describe the now-infamous plunge. “If you could take the realest, happiest moment of your life and relive that, that’s what it’s like.” “It’s just the realest moment you can experience,” said Brady, who faces serious criminal charges for the stunt.

SYDNEY—An unmanned vehicle was due to begin searching the Indian Ocean seabed for wreckage from Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.33% Flight 370 on Monday, as authorities lost hope of detecting any new signals from the missing jet´s black-box flight recorders. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is leading the multinational search, said a series of "ping" signals detected last week by a U.S. Navy black box detector remains the most promising lead in the search for the plane, which disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8.

Several years ago, I happened to tune into a radio broadcast called "Jewish News and Views," conducted by Shifra Hoffman. The callers were berating Ms. Hoffman for spreading what they called the myth of rampant anti-Semitism. One man said he was tired of hearing about the Holocaust, and that "we Jews ought to stop whining about it." I called in and identified myself as a Christian who was very much aware of widespread but hidden anti-Semitism. I gave her examples of the anti-Semitic remarks I had heard from people in all walks of life who assumed I shared their views because

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare. Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over

The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
