    From the previous comment:
    "Bring back public hangings. The crime rate will drop drastically,the overcrowding of prisons will go away and you might even be able to leave home without locking your doors."

    Speaking of hangings,this still have this law in Texas. Just a reminder if you ever get the chance to look at the law books here..the lynching is still on the books in Wake County. Just don't do it to start an vendetta. You got people who think they can run things like the Old West where justice was done with the gun and the rope. You can tell these left-wing radicals are trying to resurrect Jim Crow.

    Very well said d1b! I totally agree that if hangings were brought back, people would think twice before acting so stupid!

    Thankn you d1b. I have been preaching that for so long. Not just public hangings though. They should be televised and posted online for all to see.

    I would *love* to see legislation that whoever lets this sicko's out should be held accountable for thier behavior, after all, there's some leftist claim that rehabilitation works and those social workers, lawyers, judges, and bleeding hearts are so sure of it they'd let him free. Sign on the dotted line, he does it again you pay the price too.

    Wonder how many of them would be willing to sign on that line when it's thier behinds responsible. Bear in mind, they're so sure it works they'll let these sicko's out and around kids again... perhaps *your* kids. What reason do they have not to sign if they are so sure it works?
