    The state of Texas put a man to death by lethal injection on Wednesday in the United States’ first execution in 2017, according to USA Today.

    Christopher Wilkins, who was convicted in 2008 for murdering two men during a drug deal, reportedly muttered “I’m sorry” as relatives of one of the victims watched the execution.

    He was pronounced dead at 6:29 p.m.


    Don't go to Texas to start shit...

    Personally I am against the Death Sentence, as Redemption cannot happen when you are Dead, only Alive can someone be Punish and Redeemed.

    Yet Most, probably at least 85%, of those that are Against It, are only against it to make Tax Payers Suffer. It is why they try and make it as Expensive as possible to execute someone. Economic Blackmail, you dont agree with us, fine we will make you suffer for it. The worst is these Leftist who live in Illinois, for example, yet try and screw of Texas Residents for deciding their own Punishments for Broken laws.

    Also, the Left has low intelligent voters, who if the Left can convince them they "CARE" that is all they need to insure their votes, even if they dont care. Like Gun Control. Banning Cars would save more lives and more Childrens lives than Banning Guns. Driving is a Privilege Controlled by the State, Owning Weapons to Defend Oneself is a Human Right given to us by NO PERSON.

    I don't really have any faith in our prison system rehabilitating anyone. I think more times than not it entrenches criminals into the lifestyle and makes things worse.

    I don't know how I feel about the death penalty. I kind of think it's too merciful for some of these people and I'd like to see them suffer more. I do think it should only be used when a certain amount of proof is supplied. It needs to be a slam dunk with witnesses. No room for any questions at all. Which isn't the case all the time right now.

    I still think if death is sentence we should part them out too. Organ donors. Line up the recipients. Get the doctors in place and part em out. Make something useful out of something completely useless.

    Between appeals and due process, the death penalty is essentially the same cost as life in prison without parole.

    You think that's bad, the State of Nebraska can't seem to get the drugs for lethal injection now that they deemed electrocution too cruel - dumb asses.

    "Im sorry"

    Welp, chalk that one up to guilty and deserving. No innocent man put to death there.

    But then you can't use lethal injection because the chemicals will poison the organs. Back to the firing squad.

    No trouble getting rifles and bullets and I read somewhere the firing squad has a 100% success rate.

    Dude... didn't you see that Simpsons Halloween episode? You run the risk of the killers taking over the body of the person who receives the organ...

    I thought i read somewhere that Texas put its fewest people to death in a while last year. Gotta make up for that in 2017
