In March 2012 6 people were executed in the United States. That means 6 execution teams committed state sanctioned murder.
Think about it. I mean really think about it. You have to have something missing in your heart and head to willingly participate in the taking of another persons life. To administer a poison and watch their life breath drain away. There must be something off about a person who does that once, never mind repeatedly on the behalf of the state, for their pay cheque.
Let us just take Texas as an example. In 2010 there were 17 executions in Texas. If one individual participated in more than three executions that would make them a serial killer, right? Isn’t that the number? Participating in more than one may mean that they have committed more killings than the person they are killing. Ironic, huh?
To kill another human being you have to have a lack of empathy and pretty much no conscience at all, shallow emotions and a fundamental belief that you are right and they are wrong. I mean to take another persons life is a big frigging deal. The arrogance to assume that state sanctioned killing is better than any other kind and participating in it is A OK is rather staggering to me. There are plenty of labels that could be placed on this type of person. Sociopath being one. Of course a lot of people languishing on death row are also labelled Sociopaths. With good reason of course.
So what say you, are executioners state sanctioned serial killers?
