A Cruel and Indecent Ruling

In a 4-3 split decision, Connecticut’s supreme court declared the death penalty “unconstitutional”, claiming the death penalty “no longer comports with contemporary standards of decency and no longer serves any legitimate penological purpose”.

Seriously? How is it possible that the execution of people convicted of horrific crimes “no longer comports with contemporary standards of decency” in a society that executes a million unborn babies every year?

Let’s see. Which is less decent? To tear an innocent unborn child to pieces as you extricate her dying body from her mother? Or to end the life of a person convicted of taking the lives of innocent people?

Granted, there are some problems with the death penalty.

Why Does the Media Lie About Race to Protect Obama?

Excerpted from an article by Wayne Root, published 1/7/2015 by The Blaze
Why does the media lie about race? Why do they lie to cover-up for Barack Obama? It’s started out as embarrassing and pathetic. But it’s moved onto pure fraud.

Why does the media allow Obama to give press conferences about the handful of black Americans killed by police officers, but never mention the police officers murdered by black criminals? It happens all the time, but Obama never says a word about it.

That’s his prerogative. But it’s the media’s job to question him…to point out the inconsistencies…to call him on the hypocrisy and what looks to both police officers and law-abiding citizens as a dangerous double standard that incites violence against police.

Why does the media allow Obama to call Tea Party activists bad people, violent or radicals…when there is not one instance in history of violence or anyone recommending violence at any Tea Party rally. Yet the same media has video proof of protestors at the anti-police rallies Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder encourage, screaming in unison “What do we want? DEAD COPS.” It’s all on video. Then when police officers are murdered, the media never assigns any blame to the president….

Do Black Lives Matter?

In the aftermath of Ferguson, and after the death of Eric Garner in New York City, “Black Lives Matter” has become a rallying cry for protesters. The slogan’s overt accusation is that whites and so-called white institutions, such as police departments and government in general, don’t value the lives of black citizens.

Let’s first examine the claim that police officers don’t value black lives. The protesters would have us believe there is an epidemic of police killing blacks. Is there?

Justice Robs Mercy in Missouri

Cornealious Anderson was 24 when he made an incredibly bad decision. He and a cousin used a BB gun to rob a restaurant manager on his way to deposit money at the bank. Anderson was caught, sentenced to 13 years in prison, and sent home to await instructions for reporting to prison. The instructions never came.

Child Killers. Hang ’em.

On February 18th 2013 a 10-year-old little girl was kidnapped as she walked home from a friend’s house in Springfield, Missouri. A couple days later Hailey Owens’ dead body was found across town in the basement of a fiend’s house, with a gunshot to the head and who knows what other injuries inflicted upon her. [ref]

Craig Michael Wood, a 45-year-old middle-school football coach had snatched Hailey from the street in plain view of neighbors, racing her off to her doom, and to what should without question be his own doom.

Who can reasonably say that Wood shouldn’t get the death penalty?


Justice Severed

Almost everything about the Zimmerman Martin saga reeks of injustice.
Everything except the verdict.
Perhaps the biggest injustice of all — certainly the most public — was when a very un-presidential Obama declared that if he had a son, his son would look like Trayvon Martin. This outrageous and extremely ill-advised statement fueled the flames of bigotry and intolerance that already senselessly raged around the incident.
