We need to bring it back. It really worked on this kind of thing.

Teens kill man in random attack at town fair

R
emember playing stupid games at the fair got you stupid prizes.
One good public execution would go a very long way here.

I was being set up for this a few years back. I never gave my blind side to the little punks as much as they tried and I'm glad i was holding the grip of my 13+1 in my jacket pocket. They got lucky that day and didn't know it.

There are stupid people everywhere.
You can't hang them all, you'd run out of rope.
At my age I now avoid all places where crowds congregate.
That includes malls, fairs, stadiums, parades etc.
The court system is archaic and useless, politicians are doing
everything they can to obstruct law enforcement.
And to be quite frank, people just don't give a damn anymore.
They'd rather video an assault than try to stop it.
Nope..........I avoid people as much as possible.
I'm not a fan.

Used to be, rustlers and horse thieves were hanged publicly. Still there were rustlers and horse thieves, even today. Executions of any kind are probably not much of a deterrent. Criminals don’t think about consequences at the time they act.
Having said that, I would support public executions in the seat of the county in which the crime was committed. Not a fan of rehabilitation or deterrence, but punishment.

Old saying, you don't kill a rabid dog to deter other rabid dogs. You kill it so it won't bite anyone.

That said, it's likely that they will be charged as adults. And knowing nothing of their backgrounds, it's not hard to predict their futures. Which are over before they've even begun.

Hang from the neck until dead.

If criminals are not punished then there is no deterrent other than self defense.
If kids see criminals being punished it will have some effect on them. In my
opinion the best deterrent for future criminals other than proper upbringing
is witnessing a murderer swinging from the gallows in the town square.

But that is just my opinion. I know it would have an effect on me.

I doubt that public executions would make any impact on the criminal element. Most of them don't have the mental capacity to distinguish right from wrong, so all the execution does is insure that that one cockroach doesn't get a chance to repeat. If jail was really a form of punishment, rather than a reward / status goal, they might think before they act. Jail and prison should be a legal form of hell - something to avoid at all cost. Also, juvenile crime sentences should continue through adulthood, with their past crimes remaining on their record for life. And - discontinue the stupid parole system.

The first thing we would have to do is destroy and abolish the ACLU, the group that whines that confining a cold blooded murderer for 23 of every 24 hours and not letting them have TV in their cells is cruel and unusual. I have often wondered if they would have the same opinion of someone who killed their child.

This happened in The People's Republik of Maryland, which is just about "Kalifornia East" with a lot of socialism and Marxism shoveled on for good measure.

The likelihood that these two and/or their co-conspirators get much out of it is slim.

I've always been of the mindset that the punishment should fit the crime. Dees two youts randomly attacked a senior and ended his life. If they go to Juvi, then they're out at age 18-21 depending on how maryland feels. That means they will be older, wiser of criminal ways and most likely more violent. You can't rehab a person like that. It's been proven too many times. They've already displayed a clear disregard for society and civilization. They will hold no benefit to society and should be dispatched post haste. This is a case where arabic laws would be more preferred to American ones.

You publicly execute these two and this knock out game stops. You bring back fleeing felon law and they don't run anymore. Why you ask? Cuz they be scared to run and deadmen can't run again. Jails are full but not the worms.
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Don't do it.

Over time we have become to lenient on criminals. No criminal should have an arrest report with more than 3 felonies on it. They have proven they don't want to be civil. Give them all the death penalty. Violent crimes should all be instant death penalty, and quickly not 3-30 years later. Let the criminals know crime will be punished instead of a revolving door and I am willing to bet crime starts to drop.

I don't think anyone will complain about using a rope twice. I'm all for sustainability, we can get everyone hung who needs it.

I've always been somewhat put off with our justice system over the course of my life. I tend to agree that swift, decisive, permanent punishment would deter crime. Criminals aren't all stupid -- especially the more violent, evil types. They are cowards I think - and therefore afraid of swift action once the crime has been committed.

It bogles the mind -- they did it - there were witnesses including LEO - no question that they did it. And yet they are carefully handled and our valuable tax money keeps their sorry rear ends safe, warm and fed. It's darned irritating to those of us who abide by the law.

My psychology professor said that the punishment is not a deterrent to people that don't think they will get caught. Even if you figure you might get caught many just don't care. If a random act it is hard to catch a perpetrator. Most people are caught because they are an obvious suspect.

I call bull on your psychology professor (Not You). Most criminals pick the easy target; Gun free zones are murder magnets; Liberal cities are crime mecca due to lax justice; Dylan Roof chose a black church rather than the hood to hunt blacks because he was afraid those in the hood would shoot back; Not many thieves try to rob cops or occupied gun stores; How many of you purposely speed with a cop in the next lane; I could go on but my fingers would cramp ... hey that would be an example too.
