Cali Living by CBHine -- Capital punishment

Posted Tuesday, November 6, 2007, at 2:18 PM

So I understand the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to take a look at Lethal Injection.

Executions here in California have been on hold for months and months and months

It was back in February that Michael Morales was to be put to death. Morales raped and murdered a teenage girl in Lodi, California 25 years ago. The courts stopped it because Morales' attorneys made the case that lethal injection is cruel and unusual punishment. (??????)

Now the Supreme Court is looking at the issue... thank goodness. Not the Morales case specifically, but it's expected the Court's ruling will have an effect on the state of California.

I'm all in favor of the constitution -- no cruel and unusual punishment. Sometimes I think, lethal injection seems to fit the crime for a convicted rapist and murdererâ€* What do you think?

I guess they will put him up with Charlie (manson)? THERE is a person that should have been put down years ago.

I hate to "bad mouth" my home state, but being "liberal" sometimes goes way to far.

LOL----Here in CA they run there own show! Between all the liberals and treehuggers there is no justice! I think they should have a needle waiting in the court room during a murder case/rape case.If found guilty don't waste any time or money on the scumbag!

I think lethal injection is not cruel and unusual enough for those scumbags.

I agree with capital punishment but a little word of thought for some of you. how would you feel if you convicted someone and they killed them on the spot and then they found out later they were not guilty (it has happened) or how would you feel if you convicted someone and they went through the appeal process and were found not guilty and went home to their family? just wondering which of these 2 options you would rather live the rest of your life with?
