Death penalty for woman convicted in vigilante killings

Jurors in Arizona decided Tuesday on the death penalty as the punishment for anti-illegal immigration activist Shawna Forde (pictured), who was convicted of killing a Latino man and his 9-year-old daughter during a vigilante raid, a
court spokeswoman said.

    Actually loving your enemy is not only enabling, but it can amount to suicide in certain situations. I personally don't support the death penalty, because we are supposed to show that the civilized ones are on higher moral ground than the animals who commit heinous acts. Lock her up forever until she meets her master satan, but loving her is a bit of a stretch.

    Drop the death penalty and let her go deputize her to minute man and watch a real patriot go to work, most mexicans really secretly hate people who founded the united states anyway!. allot of people of the united states are extremely retarded these day's. the people of the U.S. need to make themselves allot more aware that people who flee mexico to come to the united states have some of the worst lifestyle and habits from a country that heavily depends on illegal black market activities and contraband for their daily livelihood. their bad morals and bad habits do not behoove our societies at all. they really all secretly hate united states citizens cause we been to war against them FIVE times in the last 200 years and beat them down each time. mexicans look at united states citizens with the thought that the united states killed their father's and brothers. the united states is retarded and moronic to ever allow the thought of allowing them into this country.

    Quiz, How many people actually remember the border wars that started when the mexicans sneaking into the U.S. to kidnap innocent baby's as they slept in their cribs and took them back to mexico to perform human sacrifice's and sell them to people in mexico who wanted them to do what ever with and some were actually fed to sharks and used for poach in gunny sack's for fishing. they did that cause the U.S paraquated their pot farms for a period of five years. this is a slight glance through the window at an unbelievable amount of indignation mexicans have conspired and performed against the united states. the U.S needs to turn every one of them back and make sure they never return.

    As others commented and based on the manner she attacked the victims, this is no vigilente act. It was cowardly and merciless.

    While the Old Testament openly mandates the use of the death penalty, the New Testament provides no overt statement in which Jesus or New Testament authors endorse the use of death as a punishment for crimes. However, an examination of the entire New Testament also fails to reveal any overt rejection of capital punishment. Therefore it is justice to put this woman to death as humanly possible without pain just like a pet dog or cat.

    Why not just bury her alive? Or, better yet, tie her up, and shove her in a crematorium, just like he wicked witch in Hansel and Gretel.
