Here we go again… My question is why have it if you can’t/WON’T use it?

California Debates Whether to Abolish Nation’s Most Populous Death Row

Opponents of California’s death penalty are working on a bill to abolish capital punishment in the state, which if signed into law and approved by voters next year could help California save millions of dollars by taking hundreds of prisoners off Death Row.

The bill from state Democratic Sen. Loni Hancock of Berkeley would amend state law to require life in prison without parole for those convicted of what are now capital crimes, including people currently facing execution. If passed by the Legislature, the question would be put before voters on the November 2012 ballot.

The push comes as California continues to grapple with multi-billion dollar budget deficits that has led to deep spending cuts, a lower credit rating and the prospect of higher taxes.

Only 13 inmates have been executed since the death penalty was restored in the Golden State in 1978, but supporters of the death penalty say commuting the sentence of 714 condemned inmates to life in prison without parole would be a travesty of justice.

They argue that rather than abolish it, fix the capital punishment system so condemned prisoners don’t spend as much time on death row and cost taxpayers as much money.

I want you to look at these images… This is California’s version of the death Penalty.

Rather humane huh? Personally I think we could save the state MILLIONS by actually using the Death Penalty. And using it often. Sell all of this humane crap and get back to old sparky. OR better yet..

I will be happy to build the gallows. I’d even foot the bill for the ropes and wood. Matter of fact, I’ll volunteer to pull the lever. I’d be happy to do it on a volunteer basis. Just allow me to work as fast as I can and provide me an assistant to drive the dump truck that will be positioned under the platform.

I am a BIG supporter of the Death Penalty I wish we would use it WAY MORE OFTEN!

In California:

Judge blocks California execution; drug about to expire

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge on Tuesday blocked what would have been California’s first execution in nearly five years, giving a death row inmate two days away from receiving a lethal injection a reprieve likely to last month’s.

U.S. District Court Judge Jeremy Fogel canceled the execution of Albert Greenwood Brown after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered him to use different legal standards to reconsider his previous decision clearing the way for the lethal injection.

We refused to use the Death Penalty because our supply of lethal injection drugs was “Expiring”… I ask you to think about that for a moment. We have thousands sitting on Death Row for extremely violent crimes. And we let our means to rid the world of these slugs EXPIRE… Not only that, but we are concerned that the “Expiration date” would make these slugs exit from this world uncomfortable….

In Oklahoma they found another way to do the job:

Oklahoma executes man using new drug combination

MCALESTER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma officials executed a convicted murderer Thursday using a drug combination that includes a sedative commonly used to euthanize animals, after a nationwide shortage of a key ingredient forced the state to tinker with the usual formula.

John David Duty was pronounced dead at 6:18 p.m. at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary. The 58-year-old, who was sentenced to die for strangling his cellmate nearly a decade ago, is believed to be the first person in the United States whose execution included the use of pentobarbital.

Strapped to a gurney and wearing an eye patch over his right eye, the heavyset Duty apologized to his victim’s family.

“I hope one day you’ll be able to forgive me, not for my sake, but for your own,” Duty said. “Thank you, Lord Jesus. I’m ready to go home.”

He also acknowledged three of his attorneys and his brother and sister-in-law, all of whom witnessed the execution from an adjacent room. “You’ve all been a blessing,” he told them.

The lethal drugs began to flow at 6:12 p.m., and Duty’s breathing became labored one minute later. At 6:15 p.m., he appeared to stop breathing and the color began to drain from his face.

Personally I don’t care how these slugs get out of here, I suggest double taps and it’s far cheaper…. Kudos to Oklahoma for taking care of business.

California, I hope you are happy…

California, I hope you are happy…

Party in the streets y’all…. Enjoy this victory. I really hope you understand how huge this victory was for those of you that voted for Brown, Boxer, Prop 25 and against Prop 23 … Here, let me help you realize the amazing victory you have achieved.

First you elected Jerry Brown. The man was elected governor in 1974 and 1978 He’s credited with starting the entitlement train here in California. He took a 6 billion dollar surplus and turned it into a 1 billion deficit (Back in those days it was a lot of money.) He is by far one of the most liberal elected officials ever to occupy a state house. But that’s okay right? He’s got to work with Republicans to pass any tax increases, so there is a checks and balance huh? Well not now, since you really smart voters saw the potential for greatness…

Prop 25: Was passed by you wonderful enlightened voters of this great state. Prop 25 took away the 2/3 majority needed to pass a budget or ANY RELATED legislation. So now since you really smart California voters passed this proposition: The HUGE majority of Democrats in the state legislature will now be able to tax/spend freely because they don’t have to have ANY republicans on board to pass it. What could possible go wrong? The governor will sign anything involving more entitlements, or more taxes so it’s perfect huh?

But why oh why would the Democrats need to raise taxes? Well since you Super smart California voters decided to STOP Prop 23, which pretty much green lighted the GLOBAL WARMING LEGISLATION that’s been called CAP AND TRADE at the federal level….So congratulations you enlightened liberal elitists…You really are smart, I gotta give you credit, you put everything aside for your beliefs… But I gotta ask…

How do you measure jobs not created in this state because they can’t afford to operate here? The jobs leaving will be easy to see, but the ones that never even think of coming here because of this proposition and the taxes and regulation that will come from it are going to be tough to count.

Also, when there is nobody left in this state that actually has a job to pay taxes, where does that welfare check come from? I know you were counting on the federal government to come our aid, but I suggest you look at the make up of the house. I don’t think the new guys are going to be real sympathetic…

By the way California is where I live, but I’ll never call myself a Californian There are too many morons here and this place should be sold to Mexico for a peso.
