Lakeland child killer Eddie Wayne
Davis set to be executed

Associated Press, by Tamara Lush

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 7/10/2014 11:55:00 AM

LAKELAND, Fla. - A man convicted of the 1994 rape and killing of an 11-year-old Lakeland girl is set to be executed Thursday with the victim´s grandmother watching from the witness chamber on behalf of the child and her deceased mother. Eddie Wayne Davis, 45, is scheduled to receive a three-drug injection at 6 p.m. at Florida State Prison for his 1995 conviction on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Kimberly Waters, whose mother had briefly dated Davis. It would be the sixth execution in Florida this year and the second in the state since the death

Comments:
Kimberly Waters would have been thirty-one today. The murderer´s attorneys filed an unsuccessful appeal, alleging that the execution violated the Eighth Amendment. Death Row inmates fear their approaching demises, putting the lie to death penalty opponents´ contention that capital punishment lacks deterrence. The State of Florida will put down the killer at 1800 hours today. Tick tock.

FTA: ´´Davis has appealed his death sentence, maintaining that he suffers from a rare medical condition that would cause him extreme abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting after the first drug is injected. His lawyers said that the pain would violate the constitutional prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment.´´

Seriously, who would buy into this crap? Yeah, I know...stupid liberals. Prepare to DIE, scum!

By statute, all death row inmates have a certain number of automatic appeals; depending on jurisdictional limit. Most of the appeals start out in the US District courts and rarely do they get all the way to SCOTUS. As much as we´d all like to think otherwise, in my experience in corrections, most appellate courts are overly cautious and serve due diligence, often leaning way over toward the convicted.

anybody else remember that line about "justice delayed is justice denied"?? This waste of oxygen was convicted in 1995! Nineteen YEARS ago! I think it´s fair to say justice has been delayed?
And it´s not a record. There´s a town near here that has been waiting for 30 years! That´s how long Danny Lee Hill has been on Death Row, and at this rate will die of old age before his overdue demise.
Multiply by many.
Hang a few of their lawyers while you´re at it.

Kill Davis the same way he killed his victim. He didn´t consider that cruel or unusual. Use his own standard.

Barring that, they should administer the lethal injection using a harpoon from across the room for all I care.

Relaxing at home between concert tours, Mac Rebennack leaned his two carved walking sticks against the wall and sat down hard on his piano bench. Known more famously as Dr. John, Mr. Rebennack spent the next half hour at his baby grand illustrating the New Orleans stride and boogie-woogie styles that were the backbone of R&B in the 1950s and his own swamp-rock of the 1960s and beyond. "This here´s the butterfly stride that James Booker taught me," said Mr. Rebennack, 73, dressed casually in black slacks, black loafers, a leafy gray-blue tropical shirt and an oversize charcoal newsboy cap.

In general we believe that really important things, like epidemics, are above politics. The reverse appears to be true. The more important a thing, the more it attracts political interference. (Snip) The problem MSF faced was simple. If they unsuccessfully administered ZMapp to Dr. Khan they might be accused of turning black Africans into lab rats. And they couldn’t risk that. One MSF clinic had already been attacked by crowds who believed they had brought the virus from outside in the first place.

Olympic athletes are famous for doing just about anything to improve their performances. But can learning to hold your breath for more than five minutes and dive 100 feet under the ocean´s surface really help you on a snow-covered mountain? A growing number of Olympians and Olympic hopefuls who play sports that have nothing to do with water think it can. And so, a collection of snowboarders and skiers—plus a motocross racer and two surf ironman champions—recently ventured off the shores of Kona, Hawaii, for a the sort of deep dive that is usually the domain of scuba experts, beach-rescue

After a week spent sniping at each other, the New York Times says Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are having a pleasant garden lunch. (Snip) It wouldn’t be surprising if the subject of a 2016 full pardon for Obama didn’t come up either. And Obama’s support for Hillary in 2016. The problem for Hillary is that the rate president Obama is messing things up, her chances of being elected president in 2016 are going from slim to none. The problem for Obama is different: he needs to find someone he can blame for the catastrophe unfolding overseas. The most obvious

President Bush, in the buildup to the 2003 Iraq invasion, said that our goal was an Iraq that was democratic, able to defend itself. and would be our ally in the global war against terrorism. None of those goals was achieved. Now, three years after President Obama withdrew American forces from Iraq, he’s dipping a military toe into Iraq again. The mission he’s described for our forces boils down to ensuring that the Democrats don’t get blamed for “losing” Iraq in the 2016 elections. If that seems harsh consider the facts, as Obama has described them, to justify the latest

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Clearwater Police detectives say they have charged a teenager in the slaying of the woman whose body was found last weekend adjacent to the Pinellas Trail. Police say 18-year-old Dewayne Xavier Jones of Clearwater is being held in the Pinellas County jail on a charge of first-degree murder. He was booked early this morning and is being held without bail. Police say Jones is responsible for the death of 41-year-old Lydia Ann Tross, whose body was found Saturday north of Fairmont Street. Police also say robbery is the apparent motive. Homicide detectives became aware of Jones´ involvement

Anthony Bloxham was standing in the garden of his house when he wondered if he was dreaming. To figure it out, he looked at his hands. Experts in a phenomenon known as lucid dreaming, where sleeping people are aware that they´re in a dream, say dreamers should look for reality checks, or details that look different in dreams than in real life. Indeed, Mr. Bloxham´s hand was glowing yellow, so he realized he was asleep. Some lucid dreamers are able to control elements of their dreams once they realize they´re dreaming. They do what´s impossible or unlikely in real life,

General William Tecumseh Sherman burned the city of Atlanta in 1864. He warned: “I fear the world will jump to the wrong conclusion that because I am in Atlanta the work is done. Far from it. We must kill three hundred thousand I have told you of so often, and the further they run the harder for us to get them.” Add a zero to calibrate the problem in the Levant today. War in the Middle East is less a strategic than a demographic phenomenon, whose resolution will come with the exhaustion of the pool of potential fighters. The Middle

ISIS, ISIL, the Islamic State, or whatever it’s called today is a group of homicidal thugs, drunk on their own sense of power and bolstered by their military successes in Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. Thousands have been murdered – and not just by a bullet to the head, but decapitated while they are alive. Thousands of women and children have been slaughtered. For those who think that the only “war on women” is perpetrated by Republicans who think that if women want abortifacients, they should pay for such drugs themselves, let me repeat that. Thousands of women and children have

Over the past day or so, the Trajectory of Blame for Iraq has gone like this: Hillary Clinton is blaming Barack Obama, who is blaming George W. Bush. (Snip) For its part, the Obama administration including Hillary Clinton was awfully quick to side with the Muslim Brotherhood, the ideological fountainhead of Islamic terrorism. There were concerns early on in the Syrian civil war that the United States would intervene, perhaps decisively — on the wrong side. Not that there’s really a “right” side in that war. Assad is a brutal dictator who sides with Iran and has waged proxy wars

As a Russian “humanitarian” convoy readies to launch itself at the Ukraine under Moscow’s version of the “responsibility to protect”, the Washington Post describes how Obama decided to help the Kurds after he was assured ISIS was meeting the legal requirements for genocide. (Snip) I used to think that either of two events might trigger a serious effort to impeach the president: an invasion of Ukraine or an invasion of Taiwan. But now I doubt that even both together would pull him off the golf links. What might coax him from his pastoral settings is a legal document. The president

The leader board heading into the final round was stocked with golf’s elite, and the combination of talent and a vulnerable, receptive course foreshadowed a showdown of aggressive, attacking shot-making.

It’s official: Obamaism is dead. Hillary Clinton killed it. It wasn’t so much a mercy killing as an expedient one, but that’s politics in the best sense. The important thing is that she broke the Democratic omertà code by stating the obvious: The president’s policy of having America sit on the sidelines of a burning world is a disaster that threatens our national security. The power of her argument is confirmed by a report that a testy Obama called it “horses–t” to congressional leaders. Even guru David Axelrod blasted her, proving she scored a direct hit on the Chicago mafia’s central nervous

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

Going by the numbers, Apple fits into a stereotype of many tech companies in Silicon Valley: its workforce is overwhelmingly white and male. Overall, 70 percent of Apple employees are men as opposed to 30 percent women, and 55 percent are white, according to statistics provided by Apple. In addition, 15 percent of its overall workforce is Asian, 11 percent is Hispanic, and 7 percent is Black. (Snip) In the letter, Cook added that Apple´s definition of diversity extends beyond race, gender, and ethnicity to include such categories as "sexual orientation, veteran status, and disabilities."

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016.

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen. America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed

Washington - Defense Department officials said late Wednesday that United States airstrikes and Kurdish fighters had broken the Islamic militants’ siege of Mount Sinjar, allowing thousands of the Yazidis trapped there to escape. An initial report from about a dozen Marines and Special Operations forces who arrived on Tuesday and spent 24 hours on the northern Iraqi mountain said that “the situation is much more manageable,” a senior Defense official said in an interview. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking to reporters Wednesday night at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., said it was “far less likely now” that the United States

Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this week joined Pope Francis, Egypt´s top cleric and several world leaders in condemning the terrorist group, which now calls itself Islamic State and has carved out a caliphate, or nation of strict Sharia law, in northern Iraq and Syria.

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define
