If you see you're about to be

If you see you're about to be hijacked throw your keys one way and run the other way. Do not EVER go with the hijackers. It is best to fight for your life there rather than be rented out to the hoodlums then tortured to death.

It's time to get back to the

It's time to get back to the "good ole days" when a person, after being found guilty of murder beyond a reasonable doubt, was given the death penalty and then executed within a reasonable time thereafter. The case is automatically reviewed by an appeals court for improprieties during the trial. If there is a basis for an appeal after that, allow ONE appeal at the state level and if that is denied or fails to turn up any reason for change in the trial and sentence, then ONE federal appeal IF there is any violation on a federal level, not constantly using the system for frivolous appeal after appeal; after all the victim had NO chance for an appeal. Last week Georgia executed a man who had his death sentence imposed on three different occasions for a murder he had committed 31 years ago - that is criminal on the part of the so called justice system. Troy Anthony Davis has played his court game for over 20 years, has had his case heard by 30 or so different judges/courts and now is appealing once again to the supreme court because he didn't receive the news he wanted from a local federal court after the case was remanded there BY the supreme court. In the local evidentiary case the judge ruled that nothing new was available to prove his innocence, then attorneys appealed THAT ruling to no avail and now have returned to the supreme court once again. That is an awful condemnation of our own system. Time to "man up" - if you DO the crime you must PAY for the crime. One other thing, it's time for our legislature to raise the crime of killing someone with a vehicle to murder if the driver is intoxicated. The death penalty should automatically apply upon conviction and it's also time to stop all the various "kinds" of murder - if a person willingly takes another's life, it should be murder requiring the perpetrator's life. We have other laws that cover charges where the death is not willingly committed by a perpetrator, manslaughter charges. Time to step up, bring back justice and quit delaying it. Whether or not swift and sure justice happens is a deterrent is not a question on which we should base our laws concerning the murder of one person by another.
