have a new article at American Thinker:
“Pro-Murderer Mindset of The New York Times.”
It critiques a recently posted 7900-word article highly sympathetic to a double-murderer
and advocating his early release from prison while still a
young man. I discuss the huge gulf in values between murderer advocates and
victims of barbaric crimes.
Having long pretended merely to
oppose capital punishment, the real
goal of those who champion the cause of murderers is to minimize any punishment for murder, period. The Times punctuates one more time what has always been realized by capital punishment
supporters: the "life without parole" alternative is a sham. Murderer
advocates seek to save not only the lives of their idols, but also their
The media and courts,
especially the U.S. Supreme Court, have promoted and furthered the minimization
of punishment for murder, while unspeakably compounding the torture suffered by victims.
The Times asserts that there is a “national debate over just what is
accomplished by sentencing juveniles to long prison sentences." I dispute
that and point out:
The public strongly supports severe sentences for severe crimes.
The only debate is in the minds of pro-murderer elitists who have a
disproportionately dominant influence in the media and with five justices of the Supreme Court, who
have defied the public by imposing their own
values on everyone else… On June 25, the Court abolished mandatory life sentences for
convicted premeditated murderers almost 18 years old, seven years after abolishing the death penalty for them and
two years after abolishing life sentences for nearly
18-year-old non-homicide predators.
I conclude that “all too often, the elite media and elite
judges eagerly identify with brutal murderers at the expense of their long-dead
victims and the tormented souls left behind.” Nevertheless, an overwhelming
public majority identifies and sympathizes with victims rather than their
Obviously: “The 2012 election will determine whether anti-victim values
will be entrenched on the Supreme Court for another generation.”
