    A Glimpse At A Few Young Lads - -Freed From Death Row
    By Dave Gibson (03/02/05)

    The recent Supreme Court decision to dismiss the death sentences given to more than 70 murderous juveniles is a step-backwards. It shows exactly how out-of-touch with reality, the majority of the court truly are. The elitist justices have hindered a criminal justice system which is struggling to combat ever more violent juvenile criminals. But hey, it's easy to be a liberal when you have the luxury of being surrounded by security personnel for the rest of your life.

    Liberal elitists throughout the world cheered the court's decision. Jimmy Carter joined the European Union in praising the decision which basically told the voters and jurors of 19 U.S. states--their opinions do not matter.

    In 1993, teen murderers Efrain Perez and Raul Villarreal raped and killed 14-year-old Jennifer Ertman and 16-year-old Elizabeth Pena in Houston, TX. The pair took turns raping each of the girls, before beating and choking them to death. The girls were beaten so severely that their faces were almost unrecognizable. Both Perez and Villarreal were 17 at the time.

    Nathan Ramirez was sentenced to death in 1996, at the age of 17 for torture-killing of 71-year-old Florida resident Mildred Boroski. Ramirez along with an 18-year-old accomplice broke into Boroski's home while she was sleeping. The pair beat her dog to death with a crowbar, then lashed Boroski to her bed, where she was raped and beaten. They then forced her into her own car and drove to a remote field, her life was ended when Ramirez pumped two bullets into her head. This horrific event took place on Ms. Boroski's birthday.

    Teen-sniper Lee Boyd Malvo will now escape any chance of facing the death penalty for his murder-spree of 2002. Malvo of course, joined with fellow Muslim John Allen Muhammed to commit 20 murders throughout the states of Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Two days before Christmas in 2003, a Va. jury sentenced Malvo to life for one of the murders. However, other states planned to try him and seek the death penalty for his crimes.



    In light of the U.S. Supreme Court decision, ask yourself...Do you feel safer today?

    Ah..but the poor innocent victims of society didn't know what they were doing, and therefore, should not be sentenced to death.. Murderers can be rehabilitated, you know.. Society did this to them, so society should take them under its wing, and make productive citizens out of them.

    There will be a simple answer for this then, vigilante justice. I think we will find grieving parents or children taking matters into their own hands by killing those who have so wronged them. The irony of the matter will be the cry of outrage by liberals for the senseless taking of life and demands of the death penalty for the "cold-blooded murderers," not to mention the outpouring of sympathy for the grieving parents of the dead tykes.

    Heres the best reason ever that juveniles deserve a death penalty.

    13-year-old to be charged with murder after attack on victim, 87, at his south street home

    When three San Luis Obispo police officers entered Gerald "Jerry" O'Malley's mobile home Monday night to find out why his Ford Explorer was abandoned, they discovered the 87-year-old dead in the living room.

    His killer, they would suspect by the end of the night, was 13 years old. And the cause of the blunt head trauma, they now say, was a skateboard.

    By 1 a.m. Tuesday near San Luis Obispo's Railroad Square, two other officers arrested the 13-year-old and a 12-year-old friend, the younger boy on suspicion of auto theft.

    The 13-year-old is the youngest person in at least 30 years to be arrested in connection with a murder in San Luis Obispo County. Neither is being named because they are minors.

    Detectives believe the boy forced his way into O'Malley's home in the Village Mobile Home Park on South Street.

    Coroner Detective Rick Neufeld confirmed that blunt-force trauma to the head caused O'Malley's death, and said he may have been dead at least a day when his body was found. Neufeld declined to say whether O'Malley appeared to have been struck repeatedly.

    Police served a search warrant at the 13-year-old's San Luis Obispo home Tuesday afternoon and recovered a skateboard. But, police Lt. Steve Tolley said, investigators want to see lab results before they say whether they think it's the murder weapon.

    O'Malley's neighbors said the boys didn't live in the park but did know at least two teenage girls there. Police were unsure whether O'Malley knew the boys; neighbors and friends didn't think he did.

    Investigators were still searching for a motive Tuesday night.

    The new age Supreme Court
    David Limbaugh


    The Supreme Court's decision barring execution of murderers who commit their crime before age 18 as cruel and unusual punishment is not only fundamentally flawed, but also deeply troubling -- for more than just a few reasons.

    In its 5-4 decision on March 1, the Court decreed that "Juveniles are less mature than adults and, no matter how heinous their crimes, they are not among 'the worst offenders' who deserve to die."

    While I certainly respect that opinion, I strongly object to the United States Supreme Court presuming to impose it on our entire society as if it is the final arbiter not just of the law, but our moral standards.

    Adding insult to injury, the Court doesn't even deny its staggering presumptuousness. In the words of the ever-disappointing Justice Kennedy, writing for the majority, "To implement this framework we have established the propriety and affirmed the necessity of referring to 'the evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society' to determine which punishments are so disproportionate as to be cruel and unusual."

    Didn't Justice Thomas once say that it was the USSC's job to provide and uphold a moral code and law for our society?

    It is the SCOTUS' job to uphold the laws of the US, the problem is they think it is their job to write the laws of the US.
