RANT: Death Penalty is cruel, unusual, immoral, ineffective, and inefficient

Hasan Sentenced to Death in Fort Hood Shooting
A jury of U.S. Army officers sentenced Nidal Hasan to death for a mass shooting at Fort Hood in 2009 that ranks among the most worst soldier-on-soldier killings in the history of the nation’s military.

The sentence brings to a close a court martial in which the 42-year-old Army major offered essentially no defense to the Nov. 5, 2009, attack, in which 13 people were killed and 31 others injured. Maj. Hasan was convicted Friday of multiple counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder in connection with the shooting.

Sorry but the State NEVER has the right to put anyone to death.

(I can understand the death penalty for someone who is too dangerous to incarcerate. Think Devil’s Island somewhere.)

Strategically, it’s something that can never be undone.

Tactically, it’s just not pro-life.

Plus, as an adder, isn’t this just what he wants?

Sorry, but I disagree.

    Well, I am a classical “liberal”. AKA libertarian. Who is pro-choice and pro-life. The Gooferment is our common enemy! (IMHO) I am sure that there are many things we could agree on. I still haven’t forgotten your support of John Edwards. Laff, but I’m still proud of my support of Ron Paul, the ONLY anti-war candidate.

    Be still my heart- we agree on something. The death penalty is inhumane, not effective and costly. He is a wretched human being but we do not have the moral right to impose death. He ought to serve every single minute of the rest of his life in a prison cell- to murder him would be to martyr him.
