Nebraska legislature repeals death penalty

Rachel Maddow reports that in a surprise for red-state Nebraska the legislature today voted to repeal the death penalty by a large enough margin to override a promised veto by the governor if the votes hold.

The really strange, maybe even weird and illegal thing that is going on at the same time, is that the governor of Nebraska has ordered lethal execution drugs from India. The FDA is looking into whether this will be blessed with ‘legality’. Outsourcing executions may become a new fad in those states still doing it.

Rachel Maddow reports on the governor’s effort to get some chemicals. Does he want to kill some people before the law takes effect and overrides his veto?

How many people can be killed for $54,000 worth of chemicals?

GOVERNOR VETOED BILL 

THEN LEGISLATORS VOTED TO PUT LAW INTO EFFECT OVER GOVERNOR’S VETO EFFORT

In an amazing show of unity, 30 red state Republican reps voted to repeal the death penalty.. Maybe this is a watershed moment in history, showing that even Conservatives have good reasons to repeal the death penalty.

WHY DID THESE LEGISLATORS VOTE TO END THE DEATH PENALTY AND JOIN WITH ALL OTHER CIVILIZED COUNTRIES?

Why did these Conservative legislators vote this way? Maybe it is because America is one of the few countries still doing executions, and is right up there ranked behind Communist China, Iraq and Russia, which are not good countries to be compared with putting people to death..

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it costs a BOAT LOAD of money to execute someone, compared to just keeping them in jail for life.. Conservatives like money saving solutions, right?

Maybe it has something to do with the population gradually moving away from moral sin laws in the Old Testament.. where death is the punishment for everything under the sun..

Maybe it has something to do with getting away from a blood lust for revenge, and living a life as if JC had come back… What would JC do? Didn’t he say something about he who has no sin casting the first stone? Bottom line, there is no one who is without ‘sin’ that can cast the first stone.. Doubt this? Read the article above about Old Testament laws requiring execution. Did you make it through all of the sins requiring the death penalty?

There are some huge problems to solve in the US justice system, and killing more people is not the solution.

Some people say that the death penalty is needed to ‘deter’ criminals from committing crime in the first place.

Sara Wigle ·The death penalty had never ever been a deterrent to murder. If it was, there wouldn’t be anyone on death row because people would be too scared to murder in fear of being murdered themselves. Shame on you for continuing to waste the tax payers dollars with endless appeals when it comes to the death penalty. Ever notice how no one with money ever get executed? Only the poor?

The death penalty has historically been the favored way of putting to death anyone who is poor and cannot defend themselves from accusations such as being a witch, or refusing to serve in an illegal or unjust war. 
Nowadays in the US, the death penalty is ‘reserved’ for those who kill others. But how does one guarantee that ONLY killers are executed, and that no one is killed by mistake?

HUNGARY ABOLISHED THE DEATH PENALTY AFTER THE FALL OF COMMUNISM

The death penalty was abolished in Hungary in 1990 shortly after the end of communism. Jobbik, a far-right party in Hungary, has stepped calls for capital punishment, putting Orban under pressure to full suit.

There is no human way to guarantee that no mistakes or biased juries, or bad lawyers or bad judges will be in the mix. It always ends up that innocent people are murdered. Maybe this is one of the reasons that Hungary decided that the death penalty was not justice, nor did the methods used to execute people avoid cruel and unusual punishment.
