Trump suggests the death penalty for drug pushers

Post by cassowary » Sat Mar 10, 2018 7:53 pm

At Pennsylvania, Trump again calls for death penalty for drug dealers.

About time. Singapore has been doing that for years. I like this President. He thinks like us.

I think Cass's point is that Drug dealers in effect kill people with impunity.

Drug dealers do not kill people. Junkies kill themselves.

The idea to hold the dealer responsible for the deaths of their junkies, as far as, I know was first promoted by Carrol O'Connor after his son died from a herion overdose. O'Connor accused the dealer of being responsible for his son's death who first got addicted to drugs as a 16 year old cancer patient.

Death penalty for drunk drivers who kill?

Death penalty to abortionists who kill?

Death penalty to polluters that kill?

Death penalty for the Doctors who kill by "hooking" their trusting patients on opiods?

Death penalty for the corrupt politicians bought off by the pharmaceuticals companies in exchange for addicting the nation?

ditto for the pharmaceutical corporations?

I'm sure we can think of lots of things to impose the death penalty for. And harvest their organs for profit!

Can we make a game show out if it?

"Pharmaceutical corporations?" "Death penalty?" Well, in lieu of that, here's hoping "pharma bro" Shkreli gets assigned to Cell Block C (don't ask).

'In Singapore, drug pushers are not redeemable, just expendable?'

Very interesting, cass! Translated into monotheist precepts, it says that sinners can only be punished by despatch into eternal hellfire, not redeemed as Christ would have wanted.

Sounds so very Islamic. Easy to see that Singapore is not a land of Christian heritage.

Trump's suggestion, along with the constitutional right of all trigger happy lunatics to bear arms, looks like another example of American contempt for human life.

Let's see if I got this right. "Singapore is not a land of Christian heritage," because it may favor capital punishment (??!!)
