A court has actually remained the implementations of fatality row inmates in Arkansas. Cenk Uygur, Poise Baldridge, as well as Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, go over the execution. Inform us exactly what you believe in the comment section below.

" LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas– Attorneys and activists this weekend break remain in a last-minute scramble to get courts to officially obstruct or allow Arkansas' historical execution speed that was originally readied to kill eight guys in just 10 days.

A federal judge tossed the procedure into chaos early Saturday after accepting halt the arranged executions, putting the Arkansas' death sentence plans in jeopardy for the direct future. The state attorney general's office is appealing.

The most recent steps adhere to Friday's busy occasions covered by an anti-death penalty rally, a choice to place one condemned man's execution on hold and a judge issuing a short-lived restraining order on among the drugs in the state's deadly injection alcoholic drink."

      It isn’t, he had help from the Russians and Robert Mercer whose company collected tons of data from social media to manipulate people into voting for him and gerrymandering and the electoral college. He clearly doesn’t have the majority’s best interests in mind so we don’t have to acknowledge him.

    Why don’t we just hang or shoot the fucks in the head like we used to?

    • Posted by Helen Short, at Reply

      Preem What happens when you find out after the fact that one or more of those “fucks” was wrongfully convicted? Incidentally, the drugs are supposed to be more humane for the prisoners and the execution squads, who suffer psychologically for killing people. I think Texas shoots people but clearly they are less concerned about the psyche there…

    • Posted by vick3d, at Reply

      Helen Short maybe that’d be less likely to happen if we had judges that were actually competent at their jobs rather than political activists. Like the Muslim ban, you agree with this judge’s activism so you don’t protest. If the ruling went against what you wanted, like Citizens United or Hobby Lobby, you’d think the courts are too powerful. It’s petty. Judicial reform needs to be a bipartisan issue.

      Human rights can by definition not be taken away by any means. Thats kind of the Idea of Human Rights in the first place. Not sure if I like that though, even though I am against the death penalty, but it seems weird to grant someone Human Rights who tramples on other peoples Human Rights. But thats the philosophical standpoint and, in my opinion, dilemma.
      In general I actually would prefer a bullet over a lethal injection, even though I am not afraid of needles, but I hate the Idea of the chem cocktail somehow.

    The United States is the only Western industrialized nation in the world that *still* practises the death penalty. We should be ashamed of this but, unfortunately, there are plenty of Americans with savage sensibilities who are proud of our draconian, regressive, and ineffective criminal ‘justice’ system

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      sharper, I think you’re being dishonest by not recognizing that Duckus most likely has not been charged with a crime that carries a death penalty with it, and he is therefore part of the 320 million in the same status.

    • Posted by sharper68, at Reply

      امــل9   I would not trust anyone’s justice system that features an often blinding desire like revenge as a central theme because revenge and justice are often not the same thing.   It just seems that if we can admit our justice systems are flawed it would seem reasonable to put some limits on them.  Perhaps not having the power to sentence people to death is valid limit of that power until their failure rate is acceptable.  Now the acceptable number is going to be different for every culture and every person as this conversation attest to.   Just something to think about no matter where you live or what your culture is.

    • Posted by sharper68, at Reply

      nexus1g24  What are you talking about? Was he charged with a capital crime where he was convicted and put on death row?  The answer is no.  So he does not fit into this 4% stat at all, in any way.  This is not complex idea, catch up.

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      sharper, “I would not trust anyone’s justice system that features an often blinding desire like revenge”

      The entire justice system of humanity is revenge. You do something to someone, the people do something to you.

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      sharper, maybe you should keep up. The user “torchandhammer” stated, “Duckus, When you get falsely convicted…” to which I responded that the chance is one in a billion that he would be falsely convicted based on his apparent lack of even suspicion of a crime.

    The death penalty is a little bit paradoxical because the argument that hangings, the chair, shooting, lethal injection are in humane can be countered by saying that no type of death is humane, but then that can be countered by saying that it is less humane to let someone who killed others live, but then that can be countered by saying that by killing them we are no better than them.

    • Posted by Trunkalunx, at Reply

      And then we can counter that by saying that we didn’t do some weird fucked up thing to someone and then take that innocent persons life. All we did was remove a danger to society and they won’t ever do something bad again like breaking out of prison and going to kill more people.

    I’d like the Death Penalty reworked to only go for truly vile people up for it and if they show real remorse and revaluation to see if their really guilt and worth saving. For deathrow, I say make them organ donors and anesthesia them and harvest away and save some people. Best of a bad life!

    • Posted by MJ C, at Reply

      +edward hickey So you don’t see anything wrong with making an industry out of this? No potential for corruption or death sentences being issued more liberally for profits sake? More innocents mistakingly killed for profit?

    • Posted by MJ C, at Reply

      +edward hickey The problem with that is adding profit to the death penalty would more than likely make those safeguards less effective. In a perfect world where we know without a doubt whether someone is remorseful or innocent or guilty that idea would work but we live in a far from a perfect world. The problem would be it that if it can apply to killers like the one’s you just stated then more and more people would likely start to be defined as such because of the potential profit.

    • Posted by MJ C, at Reply

      +edward hickey You just look at how the prison-industrial complex is functioning now, they’re trying to make it easy for basic drug offenders to get imprisoned again thus creating a cycle of crime that ultimately profits their industry. Giving more potential power to those people is a risky idea, especially considering just how influential money is in politics in America.

    • Posted by edward hickey, at Reply

      +MJ C best way to clean up the world is too recycle your garbage. I agree with your side as well, still feeding and boarding remorseless killers who are still a great danger to prison staff and other inmates, plus what kind of life is solitary confinement. I swear on my children’s lives if I was sentenced to more than seven years in prison you can harvest me that first week and I’d be grateful to help out dying people. Now I’m 43 If I was in early 30’s or younger that be a different story perhaps. Should be a program where long time inmates should be able to volunteer for alive harvest

    No government should ever kill someone. Vengeance doesn’t apply to a government.

    • Posted by JDDBeyondTheSky, at Reply

      To be fair, outside the US, the US has a reputation of being a nation run by barbarians for barbarians at the expense of the commoner and third world nations that would otherwise be stable. We try to shame Americans for it, but too many Americans see barbary as a point of pride. Case and point, the death penalty.

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      JDD, your view of the US is one of ignorance and prejudice.

    The world has pretty much moved on from using execution as a method of “justice”. There are ten countries that still use the death penalty. Among them are…China, Pakistan, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Indonesia, Iraq and Bangladesh. I find it highly ironic, that we too are on this list, with so many of those with the death penalty are from the middle east. The middle east that so many demonize, and pretend that we are any better.

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      25 countries performed judicial executions in 2015. Over 95% of executions happened in China (largest share of any nation), Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

      And 56 countries practice the death penalty as a law.

    • Posted by Jim is the man, at Reply

      @nexus1g: If those wrongly convicted are in jail, they can eventually be cleared.

      As for your statement “They die. They have been convicted by a jury, having reviewed evidence and listening to both sides of the case, ” let’s quote Ben Franklin:

      “That it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer, is a Maxim that has been long and generally approved.”

    • Posted by nexus1g, at Reply

      Jim, that was Blackstone, not Franklin, but Founding Fathers have been known to quote it. But then if you take this to mean that the death penalty should be abolished (instead of what it really means that we err on the side of innocence — which we do in allowing any reasonable doubt to prevent conviction), then you must also agree that we must do away with all forms of legal punishment as we know beyond any doubt that we convict innocent people of lesser crimes as well, who then suffer punishment.

    The death penalty places us with countries like Iran, North Korea, and Saudi Arabia. We are judged by the company we keep. The world is watching. Advanced nations don’t execute criminals, and we are viewed as a barbaric civilization. Our credibility is undermined.

    Although 4% are found innocent, a further 28% are found to be not deserving of the death penalty after further investigation. This means 32%, almost a third, are put on death row when they do not deserve (by law) to be put to death.
