I’ll Look The Other Way

I support capital punishment for every possible reason but one – the inevitability of executing the innocent. And that’s all I need to oppose it on principle.

But I’m not going to raise a huge fuss about this particular execution:

It’s amazing how little actual white supremacy there’s been in the wild in the past 20-odd years, other than the gaslight-y stuff the media’s promoting – that’s the only word for it – these days.

  1. “I support capital punishment for every possible reason but one – the inevitability of executing the innocent. And that’s all I need to oppose it on principle.”
    — Mitch Berg

    “I used to oppose capital punishment until my uncle, the forger, was stabbed to death in prison by a 12-time loser wielding a sharpened toothbrush. If the soft hearts who saved the life of his killer had more sense, my uncle would have gotten the second chance he deserved.”
    — Yogi Berra

  2. Mitch isn’t the only one deciding to look the other (proper) way when wypepul are involved.

    Y’all probably never heard of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian; you’re not alone.

    Here’s their story:

    And here’s why you never heard of them:

    Take note friends, that, according to NBC (and every other leftist news media) just binging this story up makes me, as a critic, either a “mainstream conservative such as the National Review” (lol, no), or a “white supremacist”. No other explanation possible, guys; take your pick.

    But for all that, I don’t want those murderous, feral Negroes executed. They were undoubtedly guilty, but as Mitch said, the history of capital punishment is littered with the corpses of innocent people. Looking the other way in some cases, even to virtue signal, gives tacit approval for state sponsored murder.

    I don’t blame Mitch. He’s spent years cultivating a tolerance for leftists, and that will inevitably lead to having empathy for their pogroms. There’s also the dark side of today’s leftist campaign. Mitch has a bit of local notoriety, and knows being accused of bad-think will get him de-platformed at best, unemployed at worst.

    We are in the middle of a cold civil war, whether you choose to acknowledge it or not. But it’s OK. Leave it to those of us who never did give a fuk what leftists say about them; we got this.

  3. My take on this is that where you’ve got murder with aggravating factors and the evidence is clear, execution is a good solution. Yogi Berra hints at the “zero recidivism” and “control of jailhouse violence” issues with a lack of a death penalty, for starters.

    That noted, I’ve been watching Michelle Malkin’s ongoing series of links to the work of lawyers working to exonerate people they believe were wrongly convicted, and so I’m very keen to see that kind of nonsense end. Whether the penalty is time in jail or death, that is always something the victim cannot get back.

  4. and the evidence is clear

    There have been hundreds of cases where prosecutors and\or cops have fabricated clear and convincing evidence out of thin air, and hundreds more where they have hidden clear and convincing exculpatory evidence.

    It is standard procedure for prosecutors to pile on charges they know they have little to no chance of proving, for purposes of intimidation. There are tens of thousands of cases where innocent people plead guilty (even to murder) because they or their families have been threatened with hell fire by prosecutors (who know they are innocent) if they take their case to court.

    I have first hand knowledge (never mind) of how crooked cops can be; they are trained how to lie. There are cops out there that believe their duties include dealing justice out as they see fit; either on the street or in the courts.

    You can’t trust the government to pick up your trash; why would anyone want them to have the power of life and death?

  5. My personal opinion is that we have the duty to kill people who have taken lives. With modern DNA technology the chances of mistakes are basically nil, to assuage Mitchs fears I would suggest every person on death row gets their case reviewed by top law experts, instead of endless appeals. If they have concluded guilt beyond even the normal standard to convict, they go right to the front of the line and are executed in the next 30-50 days, at most.

  6. With modern DNA technology the chances of mistakes are basically nil

    So, it’s not possible DNA evidence would ever be planted. Never happen. We can be sure, because no one ever planted finger prints when that was the state of the art.

  7. In instance where that is suppected to have occured let people like the innocence project take over, they do a good job of cleaning up the states mistakes.

  8. One racially motivated murder 21 years ago does not make a trend.
    When was the last racially motivated lynching in the US?
    1985, thirty five years ago. The previous lynching occurred decades earlier.
    The problem with cases like this is that they reinforce the false narrative that racially motivated murders of Blacks by whites is a problem in the US. It is not.

  9. MP, I have something to say about that and if I ever get out of moderation, I will be heard.

  10. Swiftee; whether it’s death or life in prison, it’s still life or death. No? And the alternative to government having that power is the “reprobates” you like to talk about running amuck. Choose your poison, I guess.

    POD: turns out that DNA evidence is only as good as the folks collecting it. Malkin is big into a re-investigation of a police officer whose conviction involved some rather sketchy investigation methods.

    Overall, it’s all about “are the men in blue acting honorably, and will those who are not hold them to that contract?” Put another way, Nifong’s jail sentence should have been a decade, not a day.

  11. Life in prison is life. That’s time to right wrongs you don’t have after you assume room temperature. Otherwise, It’s life in a cage; worse IMO.

  12. The federal government should only involved in things that cannot be handled at the state or local level.
    There was never any indication that the Texas authorities couldn’t handle Byrd’s murder without federal “help.”
