US Justice System Sucks

The Death Penalty, Capital Punishment and the Death Penalty

Death penalty states try new drug experiments
Rachel Maddow describes how global pressure against the death penalty in the United States created a shortage of lethal injection drugs, forcing death penalty states to seek alternatives that have led to complications and botched executions.

Executions by the Electric Chair

When I was about 8, I was shocked for a couple seconds by 110 volts of electricity.  The pain was so intense that I cannot even imagine being electrocuted with 1,800 volts which are used for up to 15 seconds for the initial electrocution process, then 240  applied for as long as it take to kill someone.

Since the late 1880’s and until about 2008, the Electric Chair was used to execute condemned people.  The United States was the first country to use such a horrendous method to kill people and is one of the very few countries to use such a horribly barbaric method.

This is the most painful way to die imaginable,  like burned alive.   There have been debates that death by electrocution may even kill the condemned person’s soul since the brain uses minute electric impulses.  It could even cause someone to suffer through eternity for all we know.

It is important to remember that since our justice system is flawed, many innocent people have been tortured to death by this unspeakably painful method.

Despite the horror of Death by Electrocution, this heartless Florida Republican, Brad Drake, from Eucheeanna in North Florida, sponsored a bill in 2011 to eliminate lethal injection and bring back what he called “Old Sparky” – the electric chair.

“And if that doesn’t suit the criminal, then we will provide them a .45 caliber lead cocktail instead,” Drake said in a press release.   http://www.wisconsingazette.com/breaking-news/florida-republican-seeks-to-bring-back-electric-chair-firing-squad.html

That should come as no surprise since Republican / conservatives are by nature cold hearted and heartless.

Thomas Edison was a conservative and he is one of the most prominent people who recommended using the Electric Chair. In fact, a couple of his associates “invented” it.  He knew AC current was dangerous and preferred to use DC current for that very reason.  He and his associates electrocuted animals in public to prove to the public how dangerous AC current was.

Most Horrendous Acts of “Mans inhumanity to Man” has been Perpetrated by Conservatives

Some of the most horrendous acts of “Mans inhumanity to Man” has been perpetrated by “conservatives”.  According to Wikipedia, “in 1933, with the support of more traditional right-wing conservatives, Hitler became Chancellor of Germany and the Nazis gradually established a one-party totalitarian state, under which Jews, political opponents and other “undesirable” elements were marginalised, harassed and eventually imprisoned and exterminated.

Under Hitler, over 6 Million Jews were first discriminated against, then rounded up and executed.  This was the most unspeakable crimes of Mans inhumanity to Man in the history of human beings.

Republicans Are At Fault

Recently, Arizona Republicans Voted to pass a Bill which would have legalized discrimination .  Republican “conservatives” have proven time & time again that they are cold hearted people who old care about themselves and are incapable of being compassionate.

Republican “conservatives” always seem eager to go to war.

Republicans are the ones who passed extreme “war on crime” and “stand your ground” laws.

Republicans are ALL for building more private prisons and don’t give a dam about locking up innocent people.   Republicans in Pennsylvania closed 23 schools and nearly four thousand district workers received pink slips, while Pennsylvania Republican Gov. Tom Corbett and his Department of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel are spending $400 million to build a brand new prison in Philadelphia.

Republicans are often not sympathetic to rape victims and often feel the victim did something to cause being raped.   Republicans have passed anti-abortion laws.  Many Republicans feel a women who is raped should have the rapists child and not be allowed to have an abortion.

Republicans have passed anti-voting laws so they can cram their radical agendas down the majority of people’s throats.

Democrats want to fix these problems, but Republicans are blocking Democrats efforts.

Our Justice System is seriously broken and needs to be totally revamped.  Nothing will change until Republicans are voted out of office, once and for all.
