    A white supremacist who was sentenced to death for the murder of a black man in an horrific killing that echoed the atrocities of the lynching era is to be executed today.

    Lawrence Russell Brewer, 44, is scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection at 6pm for his part in the 1998 killing of James Byrd, Jr in East Texas......Brewer was one of three men convicted of killing Byrd after they offered him a lift along a remote country road.

    Byrd, 49, was beaten unconscious and urinated upon before being bound to the vehicle by his ankles with a heavy logging chain and driven for three miles.......Forensic evidence showed that he was alive for much of the ordeal but was killed when the vehicle hit a concrete drainage channel causing his head and arm to be ripped from his body.

    If they are absolutely certain he guilty, he should be in prison for a very long time. He should also be treated humanely in prison. I don't think the state should kill him.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Nope. THere is no doubt in this case. I would have no issue with torture before execution.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    Right. The state should only kill capitalists, kulaks, counterrevolutionaries, enemies of the party and reactionaries.

    Torture is never acceptable. Sometimes it is necessary to kill another human being, but torture degrades their very humanity.

    Punishing people can be done by stripping them of their freedoms, their property, and most of their civil rights. However, kiilling people should be done only when necessary (like police shooting an armed gunman, or soldiers killing enemy combatants in a warzone). It is never necessary to kill a man in a cage, that is about revenge, and it's sick.

    As for torture, that's even worse, torture violates humanity itself, torture is obscene. Torture is always wrong. Period.

    You are trying way too hard, your gimmick is running pretty thin.
