Gambia President Yahya Jammeh Vows To Execute All Death Row Inmates By Mid-September

Gambia President Yahya Jammeh Vows To Execute All Death Row Inmates By Mid-September

“No surprise that "we the people" are the state. It's just that "the state" is far too corrupt for me to have any faith in to make such a heavy decision. Just my opinion... Let the 600,000 people in prison because of the failed "war on drugs" out, and we'd have plenty of room and resources to house former death row prisoners, and utilize them for industry... that is, of course, if we ever decide to let that out of prison, too...Of course we'll never have a perfect legal system, we'll never have a perfect anything, but we don't have to be barbaric, either... of course, if we are going to be a war and punishment mongering tribe, let's at least drop the inconvenient obsession with law making.... it only gets in the way. And, yes...I think executions still do get carried out beyond the state's jurisdiction.... kill someone's sister and they will most likely come for you. If they do, it should be handled at a local enough level so that at least the people involved in trial should be a bit more intimately involved in the lives of those they are presiding over. The state is a bandit... nothing more.”

“Great commnent!!! Except the part about letting out the 600,000 gang members who control the flow and distribution of drugs in our country. lol I promise you those 600,000 people are not kids from the suburbs who made poor decisions and smoked a little weed on the weekends.
Humans, even the ciivilized ones, are still "barbaric".”

“What in my text gives you the impression I think I understand medicine? Did I diagnose anyones liver disease, or anything? I I said: seniors take a lot of meds they don't need. I never said ALL seniors take NOTHING but meds they don't need...I love you guys all jumping to conclusions and what not. Must be the pills.... stop and read: Lets spell it out: DRUG COMPANIES ENCOURAGE DOCTORS TO PLACE PEOPLE ON ALL KINDS OF MEDS, NOT BECAUSE THEY ( ahem... neccesarily ) NEED THEM, BUT BECAUSE THEY NEED A MARKET FOR THEM. Better??? Tell me, how did we survive before meds? Maybe we ate better and exercised........ Yep, you guessed it, I'm also one of those guys who doesn't trust Pfizer, Squibb, etc...Oh, right, I forgot, the FDA is looking out for my well being, so I'm good....”

“No there not... most of them are not competent enough to be. Although I guess carousing with hookers on my dime isn't really that competent, either..."serve and protect" Hmmmm.... sounds like a bullet-taking occupation to me. It doesn't mention anything about "serve only this one or that"... or "protect only whoever we really like a lot" Such simple, angry minds here in this country... no wonder we can't evolve enough to avoid becoming a new third world.

“Man you are assumptive...I hope you look outside for yourself before leaving without your raincoat, just from getting the weather on your smartphone... Truthfully, it saddens me that people die in war, too, but... seriously, we aren't gonna put a stop to that anytime soon. Besides, there ARE things worth fighting for...I don't love abortion... but I'm not against it, either. Are you expecting my opinions to be drawn across party lines? I think for myself, thank you. Also, I don't have a problem with execution, either... watch those exact words....I dislike the death penalty, because I distrust the state...If someone robbed my home, and hurt my family, I'm all good with execution. But I STILL don't want the state handling it for me... have you noticed how badly they bungle everything?”

huckjames1 on Aug 28, 2012 at 10:31:15

“I don't EVER check the weather. lol The irony is, I am a motorcyclist when the weather is right. I can be assumptive. It may come as a suprise to you, but "We the People" are the state and when WE execute someone, it isn't done for the sake of the govt., but for the sake of The People of the State. I agree that we have over zealous procescutors, but the American justice system is by far the most objective in the World and the model for those who look to improve their jurisprudence.
As a spiritual and much older and discerning man, it is my conclusion that we will never have a perfect justice system. The day after we are born, we begin our corruption process from within, but is "another story". lol You say that wars will never end, I say the same for executions. They are etched into the fabric of our humanity.
You say that you don't want the "state" to handle executions for you. What? Are you going to carry them out? No? Then who?”

“Well, they DO call it death row....Of course, I can't really speak for the corruption of the system that they are living within, and as too whether the punishment fits the crime, in these cases, but, really... should it be a surprise that people on death row are going to be killed? Never mind that no human should actually have the power to preside over another's life, outside of immediate, urgent defense... .we'll argue that one later.”

“It's supposed to be difficult to fight crime, that's why it's called a fight, if we were all subjugated it would get a lot easier... but, we'd lose our liberty... pick one. "Man, it would be so much easier without needing all these pesky witnesses"....... yeah, due process is sure a p.i.t.a.... Our forefathers knew freedom comes with risk. Don't forget, THEY were criminals, too. In fact, they would have been labeled terrorists. The FED government is far too large to be effective at anything other than bloated waste, smaller, localized groups need to take more control of their affairs. Citizens need to handle their affairs, but, the laws ( we have ever so many of them...) pretty much castrate any average citizen from defending himself, ( at least if he doesn't want to end up arrested, and on trial ) and put that task in the hands of law enforcement, most of whom are just trying to survive until they can retire, and not really very interested in taking a bullet for someone they don't even know... it's too detached. In ANY city, there is a large community of criminals, has been since the dawn of the city itself. Things will NOT get better as they kill themselves off, because as prolific as they are, and adept at working the system, well, more will always take their place.”
