Jimmy Carter to California:
Yes on Prop. 34

Los Angeles Times, by Jimmy Carter

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/27/2012 9:42:38 AM

The process for administering the death penalty in the United States is broken beyond repair, and it is time to choose a more effective and moral alternative. California voters will have the opportunity to do this on election day. Although our government has a fundamental responsibility to protect its citizens, there is little evidence that the death penalty acts as a strong deterrent to murder and other violent crimes. One recent study found that 88% of the nation's leading criminologists believe that swift and certain punishment is the best deterrent.

Comments:
The thing that won't go away pops up to rehash the old discredited leftist arguments against the death penalty.
The death penalty is a PENALTY (ie punishment), and not intended to be a deterrent - straw argument.
The death penalty is applied to minorities and the poor more than others - false argument. Sorry peanut teeth, but the poor and minorities commit more crime than others and that's a simple fact. Jimmy's living proof that there's no fool like an old fool.

The death penalty was never intended to be a
deterrent. It is punishment for what you did. If you want to have a discussion on the morality of the death penalty we can do that. But I do not believe that anyone intent on murdering someone was ever stopped because they might face the death penalty vs life in prison. Car thieves have been locked up for years and yet we have cars being stolen on an hourly basis. Thus locking up these thieves has not "deterred" car theft. It was never intended to.

Although there are not a lot of cases out there, murderers have been known to murder again after release. The death penalty may not deter the first murder but it sure as heck deters the second.

A proper public hanging is not intended to deter future criminals nor is it to prevent future crimes by the hangee. The purpose of a proper public hanging is catharsis. "Catharsis;" so rarely used that few even comprehend the concept. (For an explanation that even a psychiatrist can understand, see "The Penalty of Death" by H.L. Mencken). If you still don't understand "catharsis,' read it again.

Carter gets it right in the second paragraph and then spouts idiocy. It's a detterent if the "penalty" is carried out shortly after the sentence. The legal system is what's broken.

Why would he think it's more effective to entitle a criminal to free room, board, education, health care, gym memberships and legal aid at my expense for the rest of his or her life?

Let's reduce the prison populations with a proposition that criminals go straight from the courtroom to the afterlife. Then it'd be a detterent.

I once worked as a contractor for the state prison system in Oklahoma. I've been to death row and have seen how the inmates live. 23 hour lockdown in a tiny cell. IMO, living like that for many years is worse than a quick, painless death. I think death is too easy for these scum but that's just me.

When you're dead you don't get to read books, work out with weights, watch TV, read porn, get a free college education or file endless frivolous lawsuits and appeals. All your stuff is gone, including you. There is no bigger penalty or deterrent than death. Otherwise why would it make national news when someone decides not to fight the death penalty? The only way to make the penalty and deterrent greater is to make it more swift (we are prohibited from making it more cruel). Jimmy Carter could not launch a decisive strike against a people that treated our embassy personnel as prisoners for 445 days. He threw our economy into shambles. Obviously, swift decisive action is not his forte.

The people of each state will choose what they want to do with the death penalty, Mr. Carter. Many states have spoken on the issue several times. I myself think the perpetrator makes their own choice in the matter. If a person can't get up in the morning and clear the small hurdle of not killing someone, then they have chosen to die.

A swift and certain execution would definitely be a deterrent, at least for the executed. Unfortunately, in most states, the time between conviction and execution is well over a decade or two, if it's carried out at all.

Here's the rules of the game, Jimmy. Murder someone and you must be taken out of the "game of life." There can be no, "time out," or "face the corner," like in grade school. The perp must be given the Gospel and executed, quickly. Oh yes, and only one appeal trial maximum, period, over, and out.

What is everyone talking about? The death penalty is a great deterrent. Not one person who has received the death penalty has gone on to commit another crime.

The problem I have with eliminating the death penalty is that the long, drawn out, expensive appeals that now apply to death penalty cases will then apply to life imprisonment without parole cases, resulting in the release of prisoners convicted of homicide and no cost savings.

You'll notice Jimmy doesn't support the other alternatives for reducing crime:curbing drug abuse, more police officers on the streets, lowering the technical barriers to prosecution, longer sentences...

Dem Party: The death penalty for convicted criminals does not prevent or deter crime.

Dem Party: The death penalty for innocent preborn children prevents crime by not allowing potential criminals to be born (alive).

Methinks there be a wee bit of self-contradiction going on here.

Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group´s spokesman. The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden´s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions.

Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama.

As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because?

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,
