If a person is convicted of murder, how do and did we feel about the Death Penalty?
Currently 63% favor the death penalty. Similar to way back in 1936 where 59% were in favor. In between it has been a roller coaster ride of emotions with a high of 80% in 1994, down to 47% in 1957. This is for a person convicted of murder.
Whether or not it was morally acceptable, in 2006 71% felt it was ok with them. So regardless of the time period, or the nations morality barometer, we basically are for it.
Now this is a shame that so many people took what they thought was the easy way out and unfortunately ,even after they get out the recidivism rate is 65%. So they obviously don’t learn. So for me why should we put these people out and put the good people in the world in danger? Why do the good people have to become another victim? How many times have we heard “he has a long criminal record”, he has been arrested for drugs, robberies, rape”, why do the victims and their families have to accept this? I don’t think they do. So we have to fight the newest odd couple, Newt Gingrich and Van Jones, excuse me Newt Gingrich?, YES! Newt have you had a severe fever recently?
1 in 3 black males will spend time in prison
1 in 6 hispanic
1 in 25 white
There are 6.9 million people in prison, or on parole and some on probation. So 1 in 108 Americans are not who I want to live next to. Not who I want near children or my wife or for that matter myself. Not who I can trust, SORRY!
The question becomes, ok, lets let have shorter sentences. WOW, I’m a criminal, THANKS! The problem is all of those brainiacs thinking, make that over-thinking are not criminals. They don’t think like criminals, they hypothesize, there is conjecture in other words they kinda guess.
Hey how about some R&D dollars to find the criminal gene in us. So are we giving up on humans and just accepting the fact that there are a whole bunch of us that have the desire, has the devil won? Just because there are a lot of people and they happen to be more black than white, doesn’t give me a good reason to release them. With 65% wanting to go back to their friends in prison, maybe we should have LONGER sentences.
We are constantly trying to psychoanalyze, and make it not so bad to be in prison. Like allowing inmates to phone surf, dialing numbers at random, until they got someone to talk to. Hundreds of complaints came from parents of children. But worry about your kid, or inmates that chat with them? So the solution, give prisoners up to 30 people they can call. Give a hand and they take an arm comes to mind when you find out that the prisoners smashed toilets tried to tear through cell walls in the MAXIMUM-security prison at Pontiac in Chicago when the 30 number rule came up, they just didn’t like it.
So why is it that we try to appease the criminals, to make things better for them. What about the rape they committed, did they ask can I rape you? Did they stop when someone said Please don’t kill me? Why is it that the criminals caught in the act of murdering someone gets to stay in prison with privileges? How about streamlining at least in that situation and within a week, he is gone. Spokeswoman Jenni Gainsborough for the American Civil Liberties Union working on the national prison project says “some inmates are going to feel they have no recourse but to make their grievances with violence.” For blogging out loud))is she F*cking kidding me?
Think about what you said Jenni girl. They feel if you don’t give them what they want they will shower you with violence. Now I asked my landlord to lower my rent, and he said no, so should I kill him? These liberals should all be shipped to LA LA Land (California).
Now prisons are cramped Pontiac has 1,713 inmates in a prison designed for 1,258. Now I live in a 1 bedroom apartment in Manhattan. Boy does my wife want to kill me sometimes, but we kiss and make up (sometimes). Life’s a bitch and when you are a criminal you are making it worse for yourself, live with your decisions.))
