mrcharles speaking in Crazy, again. Any translators out there?

Arkansas set for new round of executions; 2 moved near death chamber April 24, 2017 at 3:55 p.m.

Hey AuntPetunia - Excellent point about RG Simmons. What did it cost to execute Ronald Gene? The RG Simmons execution blows up the "cost" argument from death penalty opponents. It only costs so much because of the appeals. Ronald Gene demanded no appeals. The cost to administer justice in his case was very small.

New Orleans takes down white supremacist monument April 24, 2017 at 3:49 p.m.

Can we now take down all the monuments to segregationists like Robert Byrd, William Fulbright, Wilbur Mills, Orville Faubus, George Wallace, and scores of others? Why stop with Civil War generals who sided with the South for love of family and independence from an oppressive centralized government?
.
Hey LRDawg - You might want to check out the crime rate in the French Quarter before heading down. Violent crime is on the rise and pick-pockets at work on every street corner. Might consider wearing a bullet proof vest and for sure carrying valuables in a zipped front pocket. Point being, removing these statues is purely symbolic and will do absolutely NOTHING to address the serious issues plaguing NO like drugs, crime, and poverty. But it obviously made you happy, so there is that.

Nurse held in Arkansas bank robbery released on bail; UAMS places him on administrative leave April 24, 2017 at 3:33 p.m.

Hey McShanLPN and LRDawg - You don't want to go there. Fact is on a per capita basis blacks commit many times more armed criminal offenses than whites. Depending on the crime, it's as much as a 10 - 1 ratio.
.
Hey snyderm - Gambling or drug problem, or both. Sadly, it's not uncommon for nurses to have issues with prescription drugs.

Rally at Arkansas Capitol promotes science April 24, 2017 at 3:28 p.m.

Hey Whipper - Please stop. It's no fun watching you engage in an intellectual debate with an unarmed opponent. This entire debate, however, illustrates how the "science" on acid rain/global warming/global cooling/climate change is anything but settled.
.
Hate to sound like Rodney King, but can't we all agree it's best to wisely use Earth's natural resources and stop the politicization of it?
.
BUT, I refuse to be lectured about conservation by hypocritical elites that fly around the world in their private jets (Hello Hollywood and Algore), own luxurious homes, and spend more money on a summer vacation than most people earn in a year.
.
And weren't we told it would save the planet when it was mandated automobiles switch to unleaded gasoline?

Since libs are finally willing to embrace science, does this mean we will no longer have to inundated with their demands to accept gender "re-assignment" and abortion on demand as anything less than killing a separate and distinct human being? The science of DNA is settled with regard to gender and conception. Glad to see libs finally embracing science. Bruce Jenner will always be a male. It's not just a woman's body. The science is in fact settled.

It's broken and it can't be fixed April 23, 2017 at 10:05 p.m.

Hey Philip - Nah, you're wrong. "It costs too much, it doesn't work as a deterrent, or provide much (if any) comfort to victims. All it does is cause problems."
.
The "costs too much" bit from death penalty opponents is insulting, considering they are the primary reasons for much of the costs. It's like the guy that orders the most expensive thing on the menu and then whines about the cost when the check arrives. The same applies about causing problems.
.
By application the death penalty is a deterrent. Ledell Lee has been effectively deterred from ever killing again. Prison records are full of convicted murderers killing while in prison and/or being an accomplice to more crime while serving life without parole. Dead men do not kill or plot to kill.
.
As to comforting victims, of course they cannot be comforted because they're dead. In almost every single death penalty case, however, there are surviving relatives who say they receive some degree of closure/comfort when justice is finally served. Aside from that, just how f'ing arrogant are you to say the death penalty doesn't possibly provide comfort. You cannot POSSIBLY know what comforts anyone else. SMH at your lack of self-awareness.

Sessions puts 9 'sanctuaries' on notice April 22, 2017 at 3:44 p.m.

Rule of law, morons, rule of law. Timber and Jake say law enforcement officials are fools for following the rule of law. Fools calling others a fool. Is there any other logical conclusion?

Arkansas carries out 1 execution; at 11:56 p.m., drugs end Lee’s life April 22, 2017 at 3:40 p.m.

Hey RBear - "BTW, all options does not mean endless options, but reasonable requests.." Now, you're just moving the goalposts. All reasonable requests were met on this a long time ago. Your argument is circular and your standard of no wrongful conviction ever at any time unreasonable on a variety of basis.
.
smart2013 channeling mrcharles in ALL CAPS. Not sure what to make of that.
