Kill the Murderers

Thou shalt do no murder. A simple statement that is thousands of years old. It means that individuals should not unlawfully kill other people. It does not mean that individuals cannot kill in self-defense. It does not mean that the state cannot wage war or execute criminals.

Those who commit first degree murder should be executed by the state. They should be executed in a timely manner. The victims demand justice and taking years to prepare and conduct a trial is not justice. Making the convicted criminal sit for years, even decades on death row is also not justice. There is no reason why from the time of an arrest until the time of an execution should be more than two years.

If there are not enough judges, then we should appoint more. If there are not enough public defenders, then we should hire more. Appeals where the guilt or innocence of the convicted is not in doubt should not go ahead. Murders should be executed by the state in a timely manner; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
