  • nursejdavis: I am looking for a few Press Releases from Kevin Hillman that have disappeared.... not sure why they would be hidden from the public unless they contain narcs who have gotten their charges dropped for their cooperation. Seems the same Press Releases were also deleted from Facebook. Thanks for any help in locating these

Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

I realize many are against the Death Penalty.  So be it.  But if there are going to be executions, they should be public.  That way the penalty IS a deterrent IMHO.


Iran Hangs 9 Convicts, 7 Publicly, in a Crackdown on ‘Thugs’

Published: August 2, 2007
TEHRAN, Aug. 1 — Iran held a public hanging on Wednesday in Mashad, in the northeast, of seven men convicted of rape, the ISNA student news agency reported. Two other men were hanged Wednesday in a prison in Zahedan, in the southeast, convicted of armed smuggling of narcotics, the news agency reported.

It carried photographs of five men hanged in one place in Mashad as a crowd watched. The two others were hanged elsewhere in the city.

The state-run television news also showed the five men hanging from the gallows under a banner that said, “Carrying out justice equals increasing security.”

The Mashad chief prosecutor, Gholam Hossein Emaili, said that all seven men had been charged with abduction of women, theft and rape.

Last week 12 people were hanged at Evin Prison in Tehran for “rape, criminal acts, abduction and selling drugs,” said Tehran’s prosecutor, Saeed Mortazavi. Iran increased the number of executions in recent weeks since announcing a crackdown on so-called thugs and arrested nearly 1,000 people in May.

Amnesty International has said that Iran executed 177 people in 2006 and 143 people this year.

A judiciary spokesman confirmed Tuesday that two Kurdish journalists, Adnan Hassanpour and Abdolvahed Hiva Botimar, had been sentenced to death. They are from Kurdistan Province, in the northwest, and are charged with being “mohareb,” enemies of God, the spokesman said.

Their lawyer, Saleh Nikbakht, told ISNA on Wednesday that they had been charged with cooperating with armed opposition groups.

An 18-year-old convicted of killing a drug dealer at 16 is also on death row. The youth, Sina Paymard, was scheduled to be executed on July 17, but his family was given more time to provide the compensation money that the victim’s family had demanded. Under Iran’s law, relatives of the victim may pardon the killer if he pays “blood money” as compensation. However, in this case, the family of the victim has demanded more money than the maximum provided by law, his lawyer Nemat Ahmadi said, so it is unclear how that will be handled.

In the meantime, pressure has increased on advocates.

A prominent journalist and human rights advocate, Emadedin Baghi, was sentenced Tuesday to three years on charges of acting against national security, newspapers reported Wednesday. Mr. Baghi had previously been held for three years. After his release in 2004, he founded a group to defend the rights of prisoners, especially those on the death row. He is also a reformist journalist and writer.

Mr. Baghi’s wife and daughter received three-year suspended prison sentences on Tuesday for taking part in a conference on human rights in the United Arab Emirates.

Two other journalists, Farshad Gorbanpour and Masoud Bastani, were arrested Tuesday. Mr. Bastani was released after several hours. The two work for different newspapers but also for an online newspaper, Roozonline, which often criticizes the government.

Reporters Without Borders condemned the deteriorating conditions for journalists and said in a statement on Wednesday: “Coming just weeks after the death sentence imposed on two journalists in the northwest, yesterday’s developments confirm that the human rights situation in Iran is getting worse by the day. Like members of the feminist and student movements, journalists are being subjected to more and more harassment.”

It worries me when Ultraconsevatives begin to use Iran as an example of how to do things.

I wonder when the U.S. stopped public executions?  Now they are all so secretive and sly like we are doing something wrong.  Shouldn't Ted Bundy's execution have taken place in the town square?  How about baby killers?  If they are going to be executed, they are going to die anyway...why not let the people witness ultimate justice?  If you don't want to watch, stay home.  Also, make the other prisoners watch through the window....might change their ways.

We stopped public hangings in the 1930s.

If our executions were public, it might or might not serve as a deterrent, but it would certainly result in the problems we had when public hangings were legal - that of lynch mobs taking justice into their own hands.
Heck is where people go when they don't believe in Gosh.

LoL...I really doubt that this would create lynch mobs.  What it WOULD do is let the people know that justice is served.

It was quite common during that era. I learned about it while studying Ida B. Wells in college. Pretty morbid stuff.

First, I am not an ultraconservative.  I am a throwback, born about 100 years too late.  I believe public executions would deter major crimes.  I also believe that if a person breaks into your home, he/she should pay for it..sometimes very dearly and that he/she or their heirs should not profit through civil judgements for what the perpatrator caused to happen in the first place.  Sorry the example happened to be Iran, but then it could have been any other country that got it right too.

I'd shoot first and ask questions later if someone was breaking into my home. And I'd burn the house down before they or their heirs would get a dang thing, if only on principle. But I still wouldn't go the public execution route because I think it makes the public viewers desensitized to the violence and even eager to see it.

That was before television......and they say our kids are screwed up over t.v.  At least kids new how to listen back then. You see a man hanged it would tend to deter you from acting out. pretty cut and dry. No hundreds of thousands of dollars wasted on housing and "reabilitating" useless people. Everybody knows the only education they get in prison is how to be better criminals. The government could spend far less on cases where the innocent were hanged, than to house and pamper the Guilty. I always say if you dont want to be accused of a crime you didnt commit, dont associate yourself with those that do, and never leave yourself in a position where it could be possible.

Hey, Topgun, did you know there is a Scripture that says "Bad association spoils useful habits?" 
There's something you believe!
