I’ve got a few ideas for him… February 24, 2006

H/T to Barking-Moonbat.com: Mona Charen looks at the current kerfuffle in California over the execution of Michael Morales.

“They found her body in a vineyard. Her purple sweater was pulled up revealing the knife protruding from her chest. Terri Lynn Winchell had been 17. It was 1981. Michael Morales, whose execution was indefinitely delayed last week, was convicted of her murder.” [snip – emphasis mine-RW]

“Death penalty opponents argue that if the barbiturate for some reason fails to sedate the criminal, he might experience pain when the other drugs are administered yet be unable to gesture or signal distress due to the paralyzing nature of the other drugs. Judge Jeremy Fogel bought it and demanded that California adjust its procedures by either having an anesthesiologist administer the drugs or using only barbiturates and not the other drugs to execute the criminal. California opted to seek the services of anesthesiologists but ran into a brick wall. The doctors insisted that their Hippocratic Oath forbade them to participate in taking life under any circumstances. National Public Radio quoted Dr. Priscilla Ray, chair of the American Medical Association’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, who declared, “Our belief [that doctors should not participate in executions] is based on the fundamental ethical precept of medicine is that we first do no harm.” And Dr. Jeffrey Apfelbaum, an anesthesiologist at the University of Chicago Hospitals, told the Chicago Tribune, “We are dedicated to preserving life whenever there’s hope to do so. To take away life, or contribute to that, runs completely contrary to what we dedicate our lives to do.” 

 Read the whole thing.

Interesting, huh?  So I guess there are no abortions performed by doctors, since the AMA’s motto is “first, do no harm”.  And don’t forget, they’re “dedicated to preserving life wherever there’s hope to do so.”  Their motto should be – The Hypocrits Oath – “We say whatever lets us do what we want.”

Personally, I like the Skipper’s suggestion:

I have an idea of how to punish Morales and it might serve as an excellent example to others ….


The hurdle or sledge was similar to a piece of fencing made from thin branches interwoven to form a panel to which the prisoner was tied to be dragged behind a horse to the place of execution. Once there, the prisoner(s) were hanged in the normal way (i.e. without a drop to ensure that the neck was not broken) but cut down whilst still conscious.

The penis and testicles were cut off and the stomach was slit open. The intestines and heart were removed and burned before them. The other organs were torn out and finally the head was cut off and the body divided into four quarters. The head and quarters were parboiled to prevent them rotting too quickly and then displayed upon the city gates as a grim warning to all.

At some point in this agonising process, the prisoner inevitably died of strangulation and/or haemorrhage and/or shock and damage to vital organs.

Or, how about sticking scissor in his head and sucking his brain out?  I’d even volunteer to do it.  Bastard.
