I am now and I have always been a staunch supporter of the death penalty. Anyone that reads my blog on a regular basis would know that. While I realize that mine isn't necessarily a popular position, I'm okay with the fact that most may not agree with me on this or any other topic. In this blog I always welcome another opinion. Of course, there was a time when I had doubts and misgivings regarding the use of capital punishment, particularly with it's application. There are people in this country that would be prone to convict a person of color, as opposed to someone that looks just like them. I got over those doubts and misgivings though years ago and I wouldn't be unhappy if we executed 30 people a month in every state in this nation for a year or two. At least that way we'd be sure to get some of the scumbags out of jail. I'm sick of my tax dollars being used to feed and care for the bastards!!!
When I see things like the story below. I have no doubt in my mind that capital punishment is absolutely the right way to go with these predators.
Police: 10-year-old Colorado girl missing for week is dead
A 10-year-old Colorado girl reported missing one week ago is dead, police said Friday, spurring a manhunt for the person who killed her.
Westminster Police Chief Lee Birk told reporters that a body found earlier this week "has been positively identified" as that of Jessica Ridgeway.
"Our focus has changed from a search for Jessica to a mission of justice for Jessica," Birk said.
Jessica was last seen by her mother as she left for school October 5. Authorities then issued a statewide Amber Alert for the girl.
On Sunday, a man in a subdivision in Superior discovered Jessica's backpack outside his house about 7 miles from the girl's hometown of Westminster, said Westminster Police Investigator Trevor Materasso. Both towns are along the Denver-Boulder Turnpike.
A body -- which was "not intact," according to police -- was found Wednesday at a park in Arvada, a Denver suburb just five miles from Westminster. The body was identified Friday as that of Jessica.
With that news, Birk acknowledged that authorities "recognize that there is a predator at large in our community."
"We are doing everything within our power to apprehend that individual," he said.
Hundreds of volunteers had searched fields and streets, posted fliers and canvassed neighborhoods since news broke of the girl's disappearance. Hundreds of local, state and federal law enforcement officers have also been working the case, according to Birk.
As of Friday, authorities had searched more than 500 homes and 1,000 vehicles, responded to more than 1,500 tips and "covered thoroughly more than 800 leads," said Jim Yacone, special agent in charge of the FBI's Denver office.
"Open space and water searches by both law enforcement, the Westminster Fire Department and many hundreds of volunteers have been extensive, and they will continue," Yacone told
Anyone that would want to harm or have sex with a child is a deviant in my mind. I can think of no reason to allow someone like that to walk around free and clear in an open society like ours. While hanging and castration might be too good for them....I'd say that they deserve at least that; and not necessarily in that order either.
The way I see it, I don't care if you're a famous child molester or the strange, bug eyed, sweaty guy that lives next door....all of you should die. Whether you're a bishop, priest, minister, daycare worker, teacher, football coach, sheriff or a pastor that goes by the name Eddie "doo doo on his schlong" Long....I believe that you should permanently lose your walking around rights. Anyone that enjoys having sex with underage boys and girls needs to take an extended dirt nap.
I'm tired of seeing these people paraded before cameras. Whenever a society allows the least of us to be repeatedly victimized, then society has failed. These scumbags don't deserve a second chance.
As far as I'm concerned, electrocution and lethal injection are too good for child molesters. Child molesters should be hung. Hanging is the most cost effective choice. A good rope can be used again and again and again and again and again!!!!
Hang 'em all I say, God will send the righteous to heaven!!!
