Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has introduced her dissent to the U.S. vs Dustin Higgins case in an attempt to outlaw the death penalty. She cites that the Government has executed over twelve people in the last six months, more than it had executed in the prior six decades.
Of course, Sotomayor only considers death by government an issue when it comes to the death penalty, as she made no attempt to stop her appointer, President Obama, from drone striking and killing more citizens in the Middle East than any President in modern history. In the dissent, Sotomayor cites the names of the twelve who were executed. I thought it would be great to research their crimes, and why they were given the death penalty. Sotomayor believes that they are worth defending, after all.
Keep in mind that Sotomayor introduced dissent to THIS, and not for any businiess shut down during Coronavirus. She did not dissent to mask orders, open borders, third term abortion, post birth abortion, confiscatory tax rates, unending wars, or the warrant-less spying committed by Government.
She decided that her dissent was not needed for us, we the people, but for the following individuals.
Daniel Lewis Lee was put to death on June 14, 2020.
Lewis was convicted and charged for kidnapping, torturing, and killing three people. A mother, her daughter, and the daughter’s husband. After killing them, Lee dumped their mangled bodies into a nearby lake. Lee sat on death row for over 20 years.
Wesley Purkey was put to death in July of 2020.
Purkey was convicted and charged with the interstate kidnapping and murder of a 16 year old girl, Jennifer Long. After killing her, Purkey dismembered, burned, and dumped the teen’s remains into a nearby septic pond.
Dustin Lee Honken was executed in July of 2020.
Honken was sentenced to death in 2005 after slaying 5 people, including two children under 10 years old. He was also revealed to be a “methamphetamine kingpin” who killed multiple FBI informants.
Lezmond Mitchell was also executed last year.
He was sentenced to death in 2001 for murdering a grandmother, along with her 9 year old granddaughter.
Keith Nelson was sentenced to death in 1999 for raping, strangling, and dumping the body of a 10 year old girl, Pamela Nelson in Kansas City, Kansas.
He was subsequently put to death this past year.
William Lecroy Jr. was sentenced to death for raping, then stabbing a woman to death. He claimed that “witchcraft” made him do it.
Christopher Vialva was sentenced to death in 1999 after killing two youth ministers in Texas. He killed them by burning them alive in the trunk of his car. He was executed in September of 2020.
Orlando Hall kidnapped, raped, burned, then buried a 16 year old Texas girl in 1994. He was executed in November of 2020.
Alfred Bourgeois was put to death in Decmeber of 2020. He was convicted of torturing, then killing his 2 year old daughter. He killed her by repeatedly slamming her head into the dashboard/windshield of his truck.
Lisa Montgomery was put to death in January of 2021, just 5 days ago, for brutally murdering a pregnant woman, then cutting out and removing her baby. The baby amazingly survived after Lisa Montgomery then kidnapped the child.
Corey Johnson was executed in January of 2021 for murdering 7 people.
While researching this, I cringed multiple time. The barbaric crimes of these individuals were appalling to review, and I thank President Trump and his administration for removing their souls from our world.
Regardless of whether you think that the death penalty is right or wrong, it is amazing to think that the Supreme Court would be debating the fate of some of the most egregious criminals in our society in such dire times.
There is no debating that these people are absolute scum, every single one of them. They did things unimaginable to innocent people. Their fate is irrelevant.
While businesses close, masks are strapped on, martial law is implemented and the world economy is crashing down, our most “treasured” institutions are debating the fate of literal scum. In an election time where the Supreme Court refused to review voting procedures, they have somehow found time and courage to fight for CRIMINALS! Not for your vote, your country, or your freedoms. The rights of CRIMINALS come first!
If this isn’t a perfect testament to the disconnect and ridiculousness of the elite, I don’t know what could be. Remember this absurdity the next time that a Statist tries to tell you that Government cares about you. They don’t!
