Rep. Kintigh; Introduced Two Separate Legislative Items to Reinstate Death Penalty

RIP death penaltyRepresentative Dennis Kintigh (HD57) introduced two peices of legislation to Reinstate the Death Penalty; HB 237 Reinstate Death Penalty and HJR 6 Death Penalty for Certain Crimes, CA.

DFNM became aware of this legislation earlier this week. As we understand the legislation has like a snowballs chance in hell of going forward. However, it is troubling to even have the topic come back up for any discussion.

The Reinstate Death Penalty is scheduled to be heard in the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee at 8:30 tomorrow (Saturday) morning.

Why are they wasting time? Get on with meaningful legislation. The death penalty is so third world. Seriously, it is regressive to the primitive and does not reflect a civilized culture at all. It is very expensive too. I bet the private prisons get an extra cut for keeping death row inmates on ice.

Please, pay attention to the real economy.
