Wouldn't surprise me if our pansy arse GOP here in Louisiana cave in and abolish the Death Penalty.


What a dumb take. Every conservative should oppose the death penalty.

1) It is irreversible and government is incompetent. See the cases of Cameron Todd Willingham, George Stinney, etc. Mistakes are made. With an inperfect justice system we can't have a death penalty.

2) It has completely failed as a deterrent to crime.

3) Endless appeals are costly, often more costly than life in prison.

4) It is an inequitable punishment often reserved for the poor. People who can afford good attorneys don't get sentenced to death.

5) We can adequately protect society and punish our worst offenders without the death penalty. It is a relic of a time when that was not the case.

6) It creates an inconsistent ethic on the value of life.

I find it hilarious that Louisiana cant balance a budget, yet some on here seem to think it can find guilt perfectly every time.

re: Bill to abolish Death Penalty in Louisiana edging closer to House vote
Louisiana has some of the most limp dick GOP's in the country.... I'm pitching for Texas to acquire the state so we can let adults manage our resources properly and run these liberal frickwads and noodle dick republicans out of the state for good.

I’m ok with it in the case of heinous crimes with either

1. Criminal pleas guilty
2. Overwhelming physical evidence with at least 2 credible witnesses

Yeah, we have a thing called court...

Stop being obtuse.



You say this like there isn't a record executed people being found innocent after the fact. I think you're the one being obtuse

Talk about a crooked,big ol pile of shite right there. That’s another one of those entitled “democrats” that thinks it knows what’s best for everyone. Also another one of those holier than thou “democrats” that thinks it’s more relevant than it actually is.

Exactly.

Conservatives (especially Christians) are pro-life regardless.

The state has not performed an execution since 2010, in part because corrections officials have struggled to obtain drugs for lethal injections.
Today the DOJ issued an opinion that the FDA can't regulate those meds.

Louisiana's executed only 3 people in the 2000s. Didn't we run out of the drug to do it too?


Bullets are just as effective and a lot cheaper

Good, I can't trust them when it comes to fixing healthcare or my roads and infrastructure I sure as hell don't trust them with Capital Punishment.

I am sure that the state/DEA seizes fetanyl quite often. They should just use that like Nebraska already has.

re: Bill to abolish Death Penalty in Louisiana edging closer to House vote
The death penalty might as well already be gone. It's about worthless the way it currently is set up. I'm all for bringing back public hangings. Make it swift and easy and be done with them. No more of this waiting 20 years nonsense

Not wanting to kill potentially innocent people and being cautious against a system that’s proven to be wrong plenty of times = being a limp wristed pussy

re: Bill to abolish Death Penalty in Louisiana edging closer to House vote
I clearly said earlier no need to wait killing folks who have eyewitnesses etc
But please, keep virtue signalling

A quick google says less than 4% of executions are thought to be wrongful. You tards speak as if it’s uber common.

Bring back public hangings and torture.
