I said "It sounds as if there is more than one reason she should not be executed", referring to the execution of Lisa Montgomery.  Unfortunately Reuters did not report the full story.  Reuters leaned heavily on her attorney's defense that Ms. Montgomery is mentally ill and suffered child abuse.  What Reuters left out was the horrific way in which she committed the crime.  After gaining entry to the home by false pretenses that she set up in advance, she knifed a pregnant woman, and WHILE THE WOMAN WAS STILL ALIVE, cut the baby out of her body.  Here is the whole story:

Now knowing the whole story, the premeditation and the savagery of the act, I agree with BM100, her guilt is beyond doubt and the death penalty is a just penalty.

I noticed very little detail about the crime, too.

The link was unsettling, but informative.

As messed up as her motives were, her actions leading up to the crime were deliberate and methodical.

This was not a sudden psychotic episode.  it was planned.

I noticed very little detail about the crime, too.

In my opinion it doesn't matter. Only God has the perfect judgement necessary to take a life. Life at hard labor should be the maximum punishment for any crime.

I'm in favor of it for murder and rape but not for drug trafficing, which should be legal

Depends on the drug, I guess.

Of course, if it's all legal, then there would be tougher regulations, leading to cleaner drugs.

I just want pot to be legal.  I know I'm going to need it for 2021.

What does pot do for you that a nice bath in ice cold water doesn't?

Which one?

The one that created the heavens and the earth. Names don't matter. The important thing (sorry I know how much you seem to hate the concept of "important things") is that man is not equipped with the perfect judgment necessary to decide if a person is guilty of a crime which would warrant their death.

The State should disabuse itself of the notion that it can tell its adult citizens what they can eat/drink/smoke/inject...

So, you would trust Moloch (or Ba'al) with your life?

Any of the Inca or Mayan deities with your children?

You'd trust Freya with your fate?

You'd trust Jehovah with your 15 year old daughter?

You'd trust Zeus with your sister?

Nope - they're all too screwed up to be allowed to make any decisions, as far as I'm concerned.

And what ever happened to your belief that people should take responsibility for their own lives?
