    "Tookie" not a day too soon

    Well, Well old "Tookie" got taken off the count as we say in the prison vernacular. MY heart bleeds. The man killed (that we know of)four people and the Hollywood crowd is weeping and carrying on about a reformed man, murdered by society. How about the victims? Don't care, or it's not "politically correct" to mourn for them. Good on you Arnie, one less scum that we have to feed. I hope he's roasting in hell.

    Reformed is he? Then maybe he should of reformed his old street gang the Crip's. Instead of writing children's books. Did the person who wrote "Everyone Poops" get special treatment?

    No tears shed here - tho why it took since what? 1977? - I don't know, except appeals seem to go on for ever.

    Arnie at least stood up on this one.

    While i wont mourn " tookie " and i do support the death penalty , i personaly feel that it belittles us to crow about a human dieing , yes tookie had to go , imho he could not be made a productive member of our scociety, howeaver its not something to celebrate its a fact of life he is gone now , the world is prob. richer without him , but none the less let us never celebrate death , necessairy , state sanctoned , or not , let us instead bemoan that it took from 1979 to now for " swift and speedy justice " to arrive , speaking for only myself the dread of the date would be worse than the date a bad man passed , lets reflect on it , and the kids we see , maby some ones time would have changed him from a backshooting animal to a burglier ( no its not a liberal rant lol ) anyway lets celebrate no death that does not involve personal survival .. and if it does involve personal survival well ill buy the first round for the forum when we meet to discuss it

    Red - I do not ''celebrate'' - no drinks or jumping up and down - like you I do not find the event overly gratifying, but - on a more objective level do see some justice served, albeit very tardy justice.

    If it came down to life preservation I would tho find many better and more deserving causes shall we say!

    No celebration of him being executed. On the other hand there should be some limit to what the media keeps spouting. I'm currently in California (leaving tomorrow, thankfully), and that is all that's been on the news.

    I guess I relly don't care how he died, he killed 4 according to the courts, so die he should!

    First off, in my opinion, NOW HE'S REHABILITATED!!

    Second of all, all the liberal bleeding hearts wanted to give him another chance. They want to appeal and repeal his death sentence. What of his victims? Where is their right to appeal, their right to a second chance?

    I am mixed about this subject. No death should be celebrated and I know no one is doing that. But this man has now paid his debt to society. We are even.

    I beleive in the death penalty and I think our system of justice sometimes takes too long, but it is what we have for right now. We have to work to change or imporve it.

    Death Penalty

    Even though statistics show that it is more expensive to put someone to death than to keep them in prison for life.
    That is due to the "years long" numerous appeals process...I guess.
    Statistics also show that the death penalty does not deter others from committing murder since the murder rate is no lower in States with the Death Penalty than those States without it.
    I am FOR the Death Penalty because most brutal, heartless, and sadistic murderers would rather spend Life In Prison than be executed or...be on Death Row...and that is a good enough reason for me to favor Death for them.

    I'm positive that the people they killed would sure rather have life than the instant death they received at the hands of a murderer.
    Just to give them exactly what they don't want is worth the extra money to me.
    I don't think it should on Pay Per View though.
    Let them go through their appeals process & when that "times out" - put them to sleep....forever & without any fanfare. Then they get a combination of PITA years to sweat it out...and they still get an early & untimely EXIT from planet Earth.

    IMHO it should not be on pay for view.
    It would be better on free TV.
    So all of America can see the reward of gang life.
    That's just me. thinking with my fingers.
