5th Circuit reinstates lethal injection

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals removed an injunction prohibiting Mississippi from using the drug compounded  pentobarbital  to execute prisoners. The opinion is posted below.  Death penalty opponents can read it and weep.

Kingfish note: Of course there are always bullets, ropes, and even crosses.  Mississippi is filled with timber.

We really should bring back public hangings. Jackson residents will never behave until they witness one of their own die for being a scourge on society. We should require the younger generations of Jackson residents to attend.

2:29 May Christ's Grace fill your spirit and teach you to value human life more than you apparently do.

Some human lives just don't have that much to value.

Why not force these horrible people to donate their organs. Just do a surgery and put them under general anesthesia and remove their eyes, lungs, heart, liver, kidneys, ear parts, back skin(burn victims) Ligaments from arms and knees; suck out their bone marrow, platelets, and plasma. Here is the amazing part just do not put anything back. THEY ARE DEAD, THEY DID NOT FEEL ANYTHING AND THEY ARE FORCED TO SAVE COUNTLESS LIVES. Why spoil a perfectly good vessel with poison? Hell we could just make them brain dead and just hook em up to MS Blood services and they can give blood until their hearts give out. I am tired of us putting our hearts in the way of science when these degenerates could be forced to help others.

Speaking of requirements, 2:29's comment should be required reading for those who deny racism still exists.

Killing someone never brought anyone back from the dead. It's simply for revenge or to say someone's life isn't worth keeping. The latter puts the executioner on par with the convict.

Where does 2:29 mention race? Are you saying only blacks live in Jackson? Because I know some recent victims who would beg to differ.

4:49, do you honestly believe 2:29 pictured white people when he/she typed that comment?

4:19, I like that idea. Those people should be good for something. Living among us isn't one of the things they are good for.
We could use their parts. There is always a need for parts.

Actually that is a great idea. We can compensate the families of their victims with the sale of those organs. Works for Planned Parenthood.

The Death Penalty does discourage some from crime. And, one thing is for damned sure, they cannot kill again. Yes, I value human life, particularly the life of babies; they are indeed innocent.

Drop The Hammer said...

4:44; The People have a right to revenge. Who ever said killing somebody will bring back the dead? That's all in your liberal head. Nowhere in our laws or codes will you find a statement indicating that putting a convict to death will make others behave or will bring back the dead.

The executioner will never be 'on par' with the convict. One violates the laws of society and the other is simply employed to carry out a duty in response to the laws of society.

4:19 holy crap... that is the best idea. good people need spare parts all the time. suck out the marrow and make em donate blood, plasma, hell anything people need. hangings, poison, gas, electric are all waste of some ok parts that folks who are not to proud to beg for.

As someone who has had family members murdered, I challenge you.

The temporary relief we seek through wishing the death on the perpetrator and the feelings I had of me wanting to kill those who did harm to us and our family resurge sometimes but they solve nothing.

God's Justice is perfect and amazing to watch and have faith in.

Jesus himself told us to turn the other cheek and to try and love our enemies. Even sinners love those who love them. If we truly want to transform this world and prepare the way for Christ's Kingdom on Earth then we have to really contemplate his message and its difficult challenge for us.

True Justice is rehabilitation, its turning Saul, a killer of Christians, to Paul, a great Father of Christianity. Of course, there are sick people in this world who are so taken by evil, it may not be in His plan for reform, but is perpetrating murder the answer for them?

We need to think about the way in which we value human life. Think about how Christ's message to us practically looks like in our broken world. It's the most difficult of challenges, but I hope we as world tackle it.

Matthew 5:38-45
"You have heard that it was said, 'AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.' "But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. "If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.

"Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. "Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. "You have heard that it was said, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.' "But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Luke 6:27-36

"But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. "Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.

"Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back. "Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. "If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. "If you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners in order to receive back the same amount. "But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

So what's your point? The concept of justice has always contained an element of revenge. However, since the word "revenge" can have a negative connotation, in discussions of the benefits of various criminal laws, the term used is "retribution."

If your home is invaded, your property taken and/or your person asaulted, retribution is seen by everyone as one of the most basic elements of justice.

In addition to the college Bernie voters, the comments thread for this post would make an excellent "And they vote" story.

9:16, my point was killing someone is killing someone. Whether it's a baby, an innocent victim or a murderous criminal, the act and end result are the same. The motives are all just different. I believe what was written in the Bible. I can't reconcile an excuse for the mandate not to kill. You may not believe what I believe, and that's fine. Just my take. Enjoy your day.

Personally I don't believe in god or the bible. I sure don't want to wait for god to punish criminals.
If a person kills another that person needs to be killed. Simple.
After a while we will see a difference in people. Kill out all of the bad genes.

Anonymous said...

It's not simple. What kind of "killing" justifies capital punishment? I don't believe the dude said wait on God to punish, just not to kill the buggers.

Anonymous said...

It should be simple. Killing another person while committing another crime should be a no brainer. Premediated murder should be a no brainer.

Does this mean Mississippi will execute someone or just have a clear way to say they can?

Anonymous said...

The only time the state, or any other state, will execute anyone will be when the money runs out. If there is still a dime for anyone to make they will not execute anyone.

Sounds bout right. KF, ask Jimbo Hoody if he will be asking for a date.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
