Random Thoughts

Let's stop 36 murders! How you ask? Let me fill you in.

Today on the way back from Colfax a talk radio host was relaying parts an academic study performed on the death penalty. What was said that for every execution there are 18 murder that are deterred. The argument is that there is quantitative evidence that the death penalty actually helps to decrease the murder rate.

I would like to lower the murder rate by 36 here in Washington by putting to death the dirtbags who decided to wipe out three generations of people in Carnation, WA over Christmas.

That's a great statistic, probably have to use that one for all the hippies on campus who will think that these killers deserve to sit in prison the rest of their lives, but why have that when we can make an example out of them?

Hopefully next time 2 morons decide they want to go murder their whole family they'll think back on it and see that the last people to try that were put to death rather than given free housing and meals for life.
