Supreme Court

Cant help it, Just have to do my own poll. I score the two most recent publicized Supreme Court rulings as 1 bad, and one good. Man talk about the pendulum swinging from one side to the other. Thumbs down to the Justices for ruling that a 300lb man raping an 8 year old girl as not being a crime punishable by death. I would'nt even want to come close to imagining the horror that young girl experienced. Never able to have children now(if she would even have the desire to), mentally and emotionally scarred for life at the least, and more than likely horrendous nightmares for the rest of her life.
Thumbs up to the Justices decision to uphold law abiding citizens right to keep and bear arms. Finally there is a precedence set in the books now that will curb future lawsuits and attacks on our individual rights to keep and bear arms if we so choose.


  • What was the reason for ruling against the death peanalty for a child's rape? Not that there is a good reason!!I too totally agree with you. I believe in the right of a person to own a fire arm in their own homes. I personally don't have one because I have children in the house and I live in a very safe town but if and when I don't feel safe I like the fact that I could get one.
  • Just be content in the knowledge that ol 300lb man's new name is "Sweet Meat"!

    The prison population as a whole frown's on child molesters. You can bet his fat-azz will be hoping for death.

  • Yes Agriman I would be content in knowing that , but, being a disability retired State Corrections Officer, I know the sad part about it is that he will be housed in a "modular unit" outside the main compound with air conditioning, their own food prep areas and cooks, for that reason. Here in Pa. unfortunately, child molesters and rapists are all classified as sexual offenders and are deliberately kept away from general population for their "protection". Sad but true, sometimes you just have to wonder where the system goes wrong or how. I can speak from experience, "treatment oriented facilities " do not work. The recitivism is ridiculous.
  • E.J.
    The truth is always best but somehow I don't feel as good after reading your recent post. Why should these child molesters be "protected"? (i know you can't answer that)
    I was really content in the knowledge this azzwipe was gonna know what it was like on the other end of the "stick".

    The system has truely broken-down when we protect bastards like these who molest our children.

    I remember when i was a kid and my parents got divorced. Was living w/mom and we had trouble with a "peeping-tom". (I had a teenage sister at the time) Mom called sheriff and and asked could she shoot the perv. Sheriff said it was against the law to shoot someone in your yard, they had to be inside house. He also said (off the record) "shoot the sob in the yard, call me and when i get here, I will drag him inside for you!". Now THAT was justice!
  • I too live in a very safe town in Fla., but since I am a woman that lives alone I've own a fire arm since 1999, I have a permit to carry it in my car if necessary and these days when you have to drive to the city of Miami for Dr.'s appointments is definitely necessary!!
    Now about the 300 lb. man raping the little girl, that almost made me vomit! :sick: :sick: :sick: What were these morons thinking?? Grrrr!

  • Agriman,You are right, I cant answer why they are protected. If I were a college educated behavior specialist or had a degree in Ciminal Justice, maybe, I could give you a speech on the subject. Maybe we are too emotionally involved and not being unbiased in our thoughts. I think back to the guantanomo bay incident when a few of our military personnel were courts martialed for "degrading" some of the accused terrorists confined there. Granted taking pictures of POW"s in their underwear was highly un professional, but , given the fact that these individuals were associated with or did themselves capture , torture and behead numerous civilian contractors not to mention human bomb the Pentagon, Twin Towers and attempt to the White House,were dishonorable discharges and confinement just punishment for that? Ican only speak from experience in the Pa. Dept of Corrections, there are some states like Texas and others that seem to get the justice system correct, crime and PUNISHMENT. Others, unfortunately, want to hire school teachers and treat criminals like little kids and have group therapy sessions and the like. I had the opportunity to sit in on one session in the "Sex Offender Unit". The Counselor had the group sit in a circle in chairs and had each convict say their name and what their offense was. Sort of like what an alc/anon class would do. The first one stood up and said his name and replied he had molested and raped a teen boy. The Counselor asked him why he did and what would make him want to have sex with a boy and not someone like her !!! I was feeling sick at that point and went back to the Unit C.O.'s desk, I had heard enough and wanted no more.
    Well AG, I dont want to run on and on so I will close, but you are right, I cant answer why it is the way it is, it just is .
  • carr, if I heard correctly on the news, the reason was that by a 5-4 vote ( I think ) the justices did not feel raping an 8 year old girl justified putting a person to death. The death penalty should be reserved for only the most heanous of crimes ?( what for god sake could be considered more heanous ?) Executing this man and others like him would be, as they described it, cruel and unusual punishment. You tell me, I have no idea.
  • Is the state that wanted to put him to death, I believe, now the state legislature is talking about chemical castration, which I believe is a great idea for pedophiles!
  • Why not do it live?
    with no anethesia and with really dull scissors?? I have a nice beretta that can blow his cojones too! :jawdrop: I know..........
  • Paul, like I said in my post I think every American should have the right to own a hand gun. For ME, I am not comfortable with having a gun in my house. What a wonderful country that we have that choice! Happy 4th!
