Thanks for your reply. When public hangings were discontinued, then Gov. Happy Chandler said, "The streets will no longer be safe".<quoted text>You know what? You are right. Those scum bags killed a human being, where is the big topic about that?
This world is all kinds of screwed up Pete.
I personally think that public hangings should be brought back. Scum bags like those killers would make a fine double hanging.
A man was (allegedly) murdered near my hometown last year by his niece and her boyfriend. They (allegedly) duct taped him to a chair in his own living room while they emptied his bank account buying drugs. He (allegedly) slowly died of dehydration while they left him there waiting for his next disability check to be available on his bank card.
I say they should both be publicly hanged if convicted.
Pretty birds and lovely stories about squabs, indeed.
For once I have to agree with you Pete. Its really screwed up that a humans life being taken garners less discussion that a few birds dying.
Unfortunately, hanging someone will not bring back the loved ones lost to acts of murder. The hangings were discontinued after articles were written in Chicago newspapers, among others, describing the carnival-like atmosphere during the last public hanging in Owensboro, Ky., 1936
