Although Lance,Angelico,Southern Dem and some others already know before I became Disabled my background was in Emergency Services and 7 years in Law Enforcement. Although I had various duties K-9 handiler for one, the other was to run the system based on what the US Marshals Service does and transport prisioners from here in the far west to Central Prison on Western Blvd. in Raleigh & other units.
In all Honesty, I can saw I only met one felon convicted of murder that got the Death Penality that actually came out to admit he deserved it. I have met up with a lot of inmates here & from Fla. who had their convictions overturned and actually have become totaly different people. And they arent pulling a con job.
I have met those who I could feel in my gut they got a raw deal, and those I knew got what they deserved. But take this into account. The average inmate who receives the Death Penalty will spend a average of 20 or more years on Death Row before his/her execution. A life sentence is considered 30 years before parole. This includes all the appeals we the taxpayer pays for. I have thought on this subject for several days now before writeing this to be sure of my convictions.
NO TYPE OF EXECUTION IS HUMANE! With as much death & hurt that Ive seen over the years I honestly do not think I would want to witness one. They said that the Gas Chamber, which we used in NC was more Humane than the Electric Chair. That my friends is pure LIE! BS CRAP! Do you remember what happened in Waco,Tx. several years ago. Well, Let me enlighten you. Each time you watched the tanks punch a hole in the Building they injeceted a deadly dose of cynade gas. See they wee useing what those of us who are veterans know as "CS" gas(Tear Gas) however it was mixed with meythil Chloride to make it into a stronger dusting agent. This produces cynade.
Does anyone understand why they strap you to the seat and doubble strap your head in the chamber? Well, the ME's at Waco's pitcures & video show what it does well. One 8 year old girl's muscles spasamed so much it turned her head completely backwards and bent her legs out of place!
DNA testing should be mandatory within the first 2 hours of crime sceane investigation. And it should be allowed now due to it improvements! I wonder if we were to reverse the positions & put the governors on the row if they would still be against it? To me, and this is because I have had to work 5 cases involveing it and it happened in my stepfamily with their grandaughters. I personally feel that the child molesters are who need to get death! Or possibily even a Rapest! I have studied the Torah ( Old Jewish Law) and it says to send rapest & child molesters straight to the creator. But yet we fill our prisons more & more full of them than we do murderers! I would say child molesters outnumber them 12 to 1. Just my ramblings!
