    I'm just curious as to what those who do advocate for it would consider what type of person is capable of carrying those "executions" out.

    The government is supposed to be the one who carries out punishment for those who have done wrong.

    The government wouldn't have any truck with executing six year old children to the point of an executioner stabbing them to death. Again, that isn't the point.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Well, excuse me if I went off your script.

    It's the point I was making. Guess that's not allowed.

    The government advocated by those who support the execution of children would be what exactly? Regardless of what form it actually was, someone would still have to do the act wouldn't they? So what kind of person do you think could take on that role?
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    The answer is kinda obvious, nobody. Only someone completely devoid of humanity could stick a knife into a child otherwise make the case.

    Please don't derail with sidebars about abortion.
    As pro-death penalty as I am, the idea of executing a child does not compute. For one, children are consistently held to a different standard by virtue of freedoms and rights. They do not have the right to vote, drink, leave home,go out on dates without parental permission (which I have no desire to change) because they are not seen as mature and responsible enough to make these choices. IF they are deprived the rights of adults until a certain age, then they shouldn't be punished as adults.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty
    -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.

    Abortion is the real execution of children that liberals will do anything to defend.

    We can't even execute serial murdering rapists aged 40, let alone contemplate justice for a younger product of the just-a-system they love.

    Stripe, please go and derail and bluster on one of your own threads, else, and as you well know, there's plenty of non far right wingers who are against abortion, Rusha being one of the more staunch on here.

    Now, ya got anything on actual topic?
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Yep, or a mother who couldn't be bothered with an unwanted child.

    on the one hand we have the brutal and deliberate murder of an innnocent child, guilty of nothing other than being unloved, unvalued and unwanted by its mother and society


    on the other hand, we have Robert Thompson and Jon Venables, who at ten years old, deliberately kidnapped, tortured and murdered James Bulger, a two year old chosen at random



    in the first case, we hear "I don't want to talk about that!"

    in the second case, we hear "Anyone who thinks Thompson and Venables should have been tried and executed is a psychopathic monster!"


    by the way - Thompson and Venables were tried and found guilty and walk the streets free men today

    oh wait - not Venable - he's been in trouble with the law ever since his release and is currently serving a three year term for child pornography charges

    but soon enough he'll be free to molest other children

    If we had a justice system instead of "just a system" their upbringings would have been tempered by the law, which would have never allowed a situation where they would commit the initial crime.

    Murder should be a rare and shocking event, instead it is written into the regulations and largely ignored.

    Yeah. It's mind-boggling that on this site — of all places — a liberal could think she could get away with a title like that and have it not be about the world's No. 1 issue.

    Really, you think people like Rusha haven't been vocally anti abortion through the years on here? It's not a case of not wanting to talk about it as you well know. There's plenty of threads where abortion has been the focus, this just doesn't happen to be one of them even though it was predictable that folk would try and muddy the waters.

    What isn't mind boggling is that you continually fudge the issue of the killing of children outside of the womb into that of abortion. Anything to avoid the actual topic.
    Well this is fun isn't it?
