Should Kansas Kill The Death Penalty???



Consider this bit of reading a primer for the upcoming season of Orange Is The New Black . . . Take a look at the real life prison industrial complex struggle that's ALMOST as cleaver as Internets drama.

NCR: Kansas introduces bill to abolish death penalty

Money line and a new rhetorical tactic casts doubt on government's ability to play God . . .

"The current proposed bill was introduced and sponsored by eight Republican and seven Democrat representatives early this year. Robert Dunham, the executive director of the non-profit Death Penalty Information Center, sees the bill as a reflection of the emerging trends in terms of death penalty legislation."

"The only states that are left that are seeking to abolish the death penalty require bipartisan support for abolition efforts to succeed," Dunham said. "Opponents of the death penalty are moving away from the traditional, moral, economic and racial fairness issues to making arguments based on government overreaching. Do we trust the government to get the policy right?"

You decide . . .

Kansas has produced more serial killers as a ration to poulation than any state in the history of the nation and their answer is abolish the death penalty? What the hell is in the water?

They never execute anyone. They need to find out why and fix THAT problem.

The Kansas Supreme Court has ruled several times that the death penalty violates the US Constitution. Each time, the US Supreme Court has later responded "No it doesn't, you idiots." This bill has no chance of becoming law unless only Supreme Court justices get to vote on it. I wouldn't put it past them to try.

RE: Kansas introduces bill to abolish death penalty

A bit late! Kansas essentially has already abolished the death penalty.

When was the last time the state executed any criminal?

Answer = June 1965, a hanging

Nearly 52 years? Now, that's a crime!

Just replace with life sentences and no chance of parole. That is what it is anyway. That way you do away with the costly lawsuits and the garbage disposal costs.
