I’ll point to the post that prompted this thread. http://shocklinesforum.yuku.com/topic/5903
Now I like Hank. He’s a good writer and a nice guy but he and I will NEVER agree on politics. He’s written some truly posts in the past regarding, immigrants, muslims and the poor, yet this one takes the cake.
I’ve never been a death penalty kind of guy. Lock ’em up and throw away the key is my motto. Otis will take care og whoever in the showestall one night. As sickening as this crime is, the murderer still has family-some that may even love him-yet they get punished as well. As someone who had a loved one in prison and subsequently killed there I may be biased. I don’t care. Given the crimes that are repeatedly committed in this country, the death penalty hardly seems to be a deterrant. Yet people seem to believe the smoke screen of justice when in fact it’s revenge and nothing more.
Hank has a lot to be proud of in Texas. They execute the mentally ill. They elected George Bush as governor. They have the Dallas Cowboys. And they have people like Hank.
Way to go. now excuse me while I hang my head in shame.
