Scoot: Does the death penalty diminish us as a society?

On the death gurney, last night, Oklahoma death row inmate Clayton Lockett was described as writhing uncontrollably and clenching his teeth in apparent agony after he was injected with the death drugs. Lockett ultimately died from a heart attack about 45 minutes after the first injection.
Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has ordered an investigation into the botched execution, along with a 14-day stay of execution for a second death row inmate, Charles Warner, who was scheduled to be executed shortly after Lockett.
The execution-gone-bad, combined with a growing controversy over lethal drugs used to execute inmates and a new study showing that 1 out of 25 death row inmates is innocent brings new attention to the debate over the death penalty.
The assumption is that the death penalty is the ultimate punishment and prevents a convicted criminal from committing another crime, but there are conflicting studies about whether death penalty as punishment actually deters crime in America.
The United States is 1 or 22 countries that reported executions in 2013 and is the only country in the Americas to execute a prisoner.
New statistics from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that about 4% of death sentences are based on erroneous evidence – that’s about 1 out of 25 prisoners or about 120 of the approximately 3,000 death row inmates in America.
For the longest time – I was a strong supporter of the death penalty. But after watching the documentary “Execution,” which followed a Louisiana death row inmate to his execution, my support of the death penalty changed. Even the prison warden admitted that he reluctantly oversaw the execution.
My opinion of the death penalty changed because I realized that killing a person during a crime or in defense of life or property was different from the calculated killing at the hands of the human beings in charge of a civilized society.
I understand the argument that a person convicted of a vicious murder deserves the fate of his victim. However, there should be something humanely unsettling about the methodical killing of another human being in a sterile environment. I also understand that argument that horrible killings are not erased when a prisoner changes or “discovers God” while sitting in prison.
Dr. Keith Ablow – Fox News contributor – writes in his article at FoxNews.com, “God was in the execution changer with Clayton Lockett. He pulled back the curtain and let America see, at least this once, the ugliness and defeatism and sadism of the death penalty.”  As a forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Ablow argues that “When a society has a person under lock and key and can keep him under lock and key, but decides that it wishes, instead, to kill that person, the society diminishes itself. Every time.”
And that is the epiphany I reached in my soul searching about the death penalty.
Because the act of murder in our civilized society is so horrific and senseless - it is extremely difficult to forgive those who commit that act and those human struggles to forgive are forgivable. Anyone found guilty of murder no longer deserves to be part of that civilized society, but the death penalty is, in fact, the premeditated act of taking a human life in a controlled setting.
Dr. Ablow says, that “no doctor who attends an execution and administers a lethal dose of ‘medication’ is someone I am willing to address as ‘Doctor.’” He also points out that if we “kill killers,” we do not separate ourselves from the killers.
Since the death penalty was reinstated in 1977, the debate over executions in the United States has escalated. Is the death penalty punishment that deters crime or is it punishment that manifests society’s revenge?
Since there is not consensus that the death penalty deters crime – then support of the death penalty is based on revenge. Should a civilized society allow revenge killing?
If it is estimated that 120 of the nearly 3,000 currently on death row in America is innocent – wouldn’t it be better to make certain that no innocent person dies – even if it means the guilty do not face the ultimate fate of death?

Pro Life
Many in America claim proudly the mantle of "pro life" when it comes to abortion, but are eager to see execution via the death penalty. This is a hypocritical stance - if mankind does not have the right to end a life, then that applies equally to the death penalty. Also, can anyone point to an instance where someone bound and determined, caught in the craze of committing a murder, pauses to think they might get caught and executed and stops pursuing the commission of a crime? It's highly unlikely the vague threat of apprehension or execution stops a madman.
04/30/2014 9:12PM
The blood of a thousand guilty men would not redeem the tragic loss and injustice of ONE innocent soul. Man is not God and shouldn't play at being so.

The two clowns above would be calling for an execution if there close
relative was murdered ... such a self-righteous bunch.

Actually the debate has NOT escalated. Scoot is delusional as usual.
05/01/2014 6:41AM
Liberals murder the innocent ... at least conservatives wait
until an heinous crime has been committed before considering it. Liberals kill children and celebrate it. They also celebrate criminals and insist we understand and excuse their behavior. This is just another trash blog by Scooter.

On the afternoon of 6 May 1993,
West Memphis was rocked by the news of the discovery of the mutilated bodies of three eight-year-old boys. Rumors regarding the nature of the murders spread like wildfire through the town. It was soon well known that the boys had been cut with a knife, raped and at least one of the boy's genitals had been cut ... liberals get off on this stuff and make celebrities about those that commit such crimes

Accomplice Bobby Garner was 17 when he nearly severed the head of Bowers' 75-year-old mother, Madeline Weisser. The third suspect, Tim Kane, was just 14. The murders became infamous because the killers severed Bowers' little finger and kept it as a trophy.

Obama spent more time
congratulating Jason Collins for being homosexual than he did trying to save his ambassador in Benghazi. Leftists, aka Democrats get worked up over nonsense and celebrating deviant behavior rather than real issues. It is no wonder that Obama has been a massive failure. Pandering to criminals, deviants, and race baiters is all they have and what they spend most of their time soiling themselves over.

The black community creates its own problems by excusing bad behavior.
Sad that most black children grow up without any real role models. They have no real dads and sports stars and politicians are mostly clowns behaving badly themselves. Those blacks that do turn away from the hip hop, rebellion, leftist lifestyle are trashed by other blacks and white liberals who seek to keep blacks down.

Four people in Benghazi vs how many in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts? To conservatives, that loss of life was an acceptable patriotic duty, but 4 (tragically) in Benghazi is suddenly a bridge too far. Unfortunately, it's part of the risk of service in the foreign countries - conservatives are only locked onto it not because of the degree of tragedy, but in an attempt to create a scandal - despite Stevens refusing additional protection, and Congress (led by the GOP) not wanting to increase funding. Conservative defense experts have admitted there was very little Clinton, Obama, or anyone else could do in time to defend that embassy. Sad yes. Scandal, no. Convenient meme for ignorant people who dont understand the full story - obviously. I'm aware this will be followed up by incoherent gibberish from our resident troll, but hey. I try.

so true ...
The danger to America is not Barrack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with no accomplishment or qualification to give any hint that he would or could execute the duties of the world,s most important job.. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of this President than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved uneducated electorate looking for handouts thus willing to elect such unqualified men for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barrack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.

Obama lies and corruption have done great harm to his party and more so the
nation. Obama has zero credibility. He is only popular with those looking for a government handout whether individual welfare or corporate welfare. Obama has brought great shame to the office and disrespect for America around the world. He is a joke and that is sad for America.

Amazing that there are people like the guy above who believe whatever Obama says
and then say they are credible. Funny indeed.
05/01/2014 3:56PM
Obama’s entire polticial career has been spent slandering and trashing others.
He cannot debate the issues or say what he would actually do. He has to lie, or be rejected. He won his first election by publishing his opponent's divorce records. The country has learned a hard lesson. Electing a president based solely on skin color is a bad idea.

FBI Stats
Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery. Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife. Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher. The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic. Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery. Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

The Attorney General does not want to enforce immigration or drug crimes, marriage between a man and a woman is meaningless, Christians are regarded as despicable, guns and the constitution are under assault, congress and legislation means nothing to the president, but golf and basketball is a top priority, the IRS is the jack booted enforcement wing of the administration against all political enemies.

First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office, 102 (many more by now) to date. First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records. First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it. First President to go on multiple “global apology tours” and concurrent ”insult our friends” tours. First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers. First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife. First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense. First President to fly in a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense. First President to repeat the Holy Quran & tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth. First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.” hen he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.* First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs. Arizona). -> How is Obama’s “hope and change” working out for you?
05/01/2014 7:35PM
People have the freedom to speak and vote as liberals, moderates or conservatives. Sorry, but you can't "abort" people just because you don't agree with their politics. The Constitution gives people the freedom to vote for a more liberal USA if they so desire - doesn't entitle you to dispose of them for not being "real 'mericans."

As each page of the book is turned,
we're finding out slowly that a proud Chicago bathhouse member and racist Community Agitator isn't smart enough to be president without looking like a fool on the world state of politics.

Consistent Life Ethic
Google it. It is possible to be against abortion AND the death penalty. But I admit it's hard for people with your obsessive one-note rants to grasp nuance.

Nice Rebuttal
Of the actual philosophy of the Consistent Life Ethic. It's one thing I enjoy about your posts, their on topic and insightful nature that make for spirited but intelligent debate.

It is now a FACT that Obama allowed his ambassador to be killed.
Obama did NOTHING. Obama deserves to be tried, convicted, and executed for treason... would love to see this àsshole convicted.

Reality is blacks are not held to the same standards of excellence as whites
by white liberals. If Obama had white skin he would be in a heap of a lot more trouble than he is. Liberals think blacks are inferior and should be given a break and not be expected to perform at a competent level.

So you support executing the president for every failed military or diplomatic mission that results in loss of life? That's basically all of them.

Anti-free speech Dems spanked for constitutional amendment plan ...
The DemWITS are the ones show oppose free speech. The Senate will vote on an amendment sponsored by Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.)

Who are these STUPID people who believe anything Obama says?
Gee, no wonder America is in major decline.

Black racism and hate ....

Some here cannot handle the truth about the left ...
"Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness." -- Mary Frances Berry, former Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

Leftist racism ...
"We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go." -- Marion Barry

Jenny Beth Martin
Leader of so called "non profit" Tea Party Patriots went from cleaning houses to making over half a million dollars a year - subsidized by Koch Brothers. There's big money in fear, paranoia and revolutionary bullshizit.
