Justice Denied

It is incredible to me that justice be denied over such a silly issue.

Oklahoma Proposes Substitute Drug for Lethal Injections

The nationwide shortage of thiopental sodium, a key anesthetic used in lethal injections, has forced states to get creative as they try to figure out how to keep capital punishment on track.


Oklahoma has proposed using a replacement drug for executions — pentobarbital, which has been used to humanely euthanize animals, the state contends in court briefs. The anesthetic, according to the state, is “substantially” similar to thiopental.

Good enough for a my dogs, cats good enough for a convicted murderer.

It “is untested, potentially dangerous
Oh gosh, I thought that was the point.

could well result in a torturous execution

Yea right!!??

Wall Street Journal

You know what?

I have had several, dearly loved dogs and cats put down using the exact drugs suggested for cold blooded murderers. So called people who commit most horrendous crimes.

Does anyone think I would put my pets down using such drugs if I though they would suffer because of it?

I have a solution for this.

Have a rope to accomplish the mission.

It is insufferable to me that a convicted murder should not feel pain upon execution.

Get 'em Boys

How I hate to think it

Texas coming to the rescue.

God bless them.

It ain't enough but:

The federal government has zero interest in protecting our citizens, at least Texas is a shining example what what needs to be done.

America's Third War: Texas Strikes Back

“I never thought that we’d be in this paramilitary type of engagement. It's a war on the border," said Captain Stacy Holland with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Holland leads a fleet of 16 state-of-the-art helicopters that make up the aviation assets used by the Texas DPS to fight Mexican drug cartels.

In recent years, the cartels have become bolder and more ruthless.

They cross the border with AK-47s on their backs, wearing military camouflage. They recruit in prisons and schools on the American side. Spotters sit in duck blinds along the Rio Grande and call out the positions of the U.S. Border Patrol.

To combat the cartels, the Texas Department of Public Safety is launching a counterinsurgency.

Tactical strike teams send field intelligence they gather to Austin to a joint operation intelligence center, or JOIC in military terminology.

“It certainly is a war in a sense that we’re doing what we can to protect Texans and the rest of the nation from clearly a threat that has emerged over the last several years,” said Former FBI prosecutor Steve McCraw, who runs the undeclared "war."

And now that there is added pressure on the cartels, the drug runners are employing new techniques, known as a splash down. When the heat is on, they attempt to return to Mexico with the drugs, often times in broad daylight. And because the Texas law enforcement’s authority ends at the border -- in this case the river -- they even have time to put on their life jackets.

“The cartels may be ruthless, they may be vicious, they may be cowardly ... but they’re not stupid,” said McCraw. “They’ll adapt their tactics and recently they’ve adapted their tactics to utilize smaller loads, cross with rafts, stolen vehicles on our side.”

President Barack Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have recently said the Mexican border is more secure now than it has been in 20 years, but some along this border strongly disagree.

"To suggest the southwest border is secure is ridiculous," said Holland.

Pigs Can Fly

This lady needs some couch time.

It is incredible how the psycho loonies are taking over one day at a time and there is nothing us regular people can do about it.

FAA Says Pigs Can Fly

It’s Official: FAA Says Pigs Can Fly — and First Class, at That

USAirways did nothing wrong when it allowed

a pig to fly first class from Philadelphia to Seattle in October,

the Federal Aviation Administration found.

Maria Tirotta Andrews, the pig’s owner, brought the 300-pound Vietnamese pot-bellied pig named Charlotte onto the Boeing 757 on Oct. 17, saying it was a therapeutic companion pet.
