MO: State Rep. wants death penalty as option for repeat sex offenders

It’s the one issue in Jefferson City that State Representative Randy Pietzman says nobody likes to talk about. “This is not a popular topic to talk about if you’re just trying to get re-elected,” he said.

But that’s not going to stop him from tackling it head on because he says it concerns the safety of every Missouri child. Full Article

It’s law enforcement and lawmakers just like these who have done something in their lives that very well could have landed them in jail or prison. And they go hysterical when they acquire a little power.
Merkel and Peitzman need to go look in their own closets and then be happy they didn’t get caught for doing something crazy or stupid in their personal lives.
Increasing the punishment for certain crimes is possibly in order. I would never condone sex with a 3 or 4 year old, but come on you idiots. Death Penalty?
People who think the way they do, just make me sick to my stomach.

“This is not a popular topic to talk about if you’re just trying to get re-elected,” he said.
Yes, but that is exactly why you are talking about it.
And are the RC’s actually committing these new crimes? I bet not.
No…it’s teachers, clergy, relatives and everyone you trust on a daily basis.

Now go and get yourself re-elected and keep spewing your hate.

I agree with him, but the idea should be amended to include any elected official or sworn peace officer convicted of ANY felony should have all their assets seized and be executed without appeal.

This is what happens in a state where the ACLU doesn’t seem to give a f***ing s**t about registered citizens. I think it’s great that the ACLU seems to be involved in other states. But, here in Missouri, the ACLU probably wouldn’t spit on us if we were on fire!
Years ago, when the unconstitutional Halloween crap laws were passed, the ACLU in Missouri stepped up and tried to get it thrown out. That’s the last we’ve heard from them. Even though the Missouri Supreme Court ultimately ruled the Halloween laws to be unconstitutional, the cops are still enforcing them. Why? Because nobody including the ACLU gives a s**t here in this state.
Now they want to bring in the death penalty. You know what, it will probably pass because it’s Missouri. And, they will probably be able to apply the death penalty retroactively because, hey, it’s just a price club membership, right?
Wake the F**K up, ACLU of Missouri!!! You’re f**king useless and clueless!!!

That’s funny, I want judges and politicians that don’t uphold our laws and constitution to get the death penalty too, their decisions get people killed.

It’ll never happen. This person is grandstanding for votes, is all.

Leave it to a Rightist to suggest a law that SCOTUS has outlawed because laws such as this violate the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

When does this type of rhetoric become hate speech? I am a registrant. when I hear this, it’s like they want to kill me (not just some person on the registry). Can I file for a restraining order?
