Deputy: Yeah, in Dallas they do it in a barn outside town.

Judge Roy Bean:  ln a barn?  Like they was ashamed of it?  Why, l’d rather give up hanging.  No, sir.  The law says that the guilty shall be punished.  And l say it shall be done

in broad daylight…in the open, not sneaking around.  Like you was the ones that was guilty,  not them.

Deputy:  What about the ladies, Judge?  Their delicate sensibilities?-And the children?

Judge Roy Bean:  -The children?  lt’s exactly what children need.  lt sets an example.  lt shows what happens  if they don’t walk the straight and narrow.

Screenplay, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972)

Stacy Keach gives an over the top comic performance in the classic film The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972).  The film gets both the life and times wrong, but the movie is vastly entertaining from start to finish with Paul Newman demonstrating why he was the last of the great Hollywood stars.

  1. Capital punishment for homicide in the first degree demonstrates the power of attorney of the condemned, the dignity of the sovereign person to be executed and the purpose of the law to maintain and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our (constitutional) Posterity.
    A law by which every person must live and die, no exceptions.

  2. “. . . son of a billy goat.” I like it.

    What part of the word “punishment” is not comprehended by death penalty opponents? What about the human dignity of the person murdered?

    There is an interesting “take” on Conrad’s Heart of Darkness quote “Exterminate all the brutes!” Some reviewers say it’s a comment on contemporary ranges (murder, rape, certain larceny, etc.) of crimes/sentences that involved public hangings.

    Re: insults. Toward the end of Fenimore Cooper’s The Last of the Mohicans, Magua leaves the Delaware (Tamanend refused to hand over Uncas) village saying, “Dogs! Rabbits! Thieves!” It would be an uncharitable insult to all three (perceived low-lifes) to say it to democrats.

  3. Pope Francis’ failed attempt to change the Catechism on the death penalty seems to be in direct conflict with his constant embrace of Islam, for whom the death penalty is a modus operandi. Will he attempt to change the stance of Islam on that? Nah, he’s too busy surrounding himself with homosexuals.

  4. I have been countering the vile Democrat diatribes and episcopal emmanations by watching encores of 50’s and 60’s weekly tv westerns.
    I find clarity in morality and faith, good and bad, and right and wrong. So, on an episode of ‘Gunsmoke’ called “Lynotte”, Marshall Matt Dillon: Man needs laws, and someone to uphold them.

  5. “Marshall Matt Dillon: Man needs laws, and someone to uphold them.”
    We, the people have laws in our Founding Principles. Every sovereign person who institutes the state has the duty to be a law-abiding citizen. Every law-abiding citizen has the civil right, duty and power of citizens’ arrest. Some politicians tell you that you do not have the duty of patriotism, good will for the common good, but some politicians are liars.

  6. “” “Dogs! Rabbits! Thieves!”” When man commits a sin and crime, man falls beneath the animals to the level of demons.
    Animals have no conscience nor sovereignty (discipline over themselves) nor reason. They are dumb animals. Even the herd of 4,000 pigs ran off the cliff and drowned themselves in the sea to avoid being possessed by Legion. Man rejects the love of God and throws in with the devil through his God-given free will. Man wills to join the ranks of the devil.
    An illegal invading alien has been arrested in the crime of homicide in the first degree against an innocent citizen jogging in the public. Why should he be allowed to live?

  7. “An illegal invading alien has been arrested in the crime of homicide in the first degree against an innocent citizen jogging in the public. Why should he be allowed to live?”
    This question is directed toward Pope Francis I.

  8. The oddest thing about Trump’s presidency is that, suddenly, illegal aliens committing crimes that end the lives of innocent Americans actually makes the news.

  9. Quite right Foxfier. The response of many on the Left to the murder of Mollie Tibbetts was instructive. First, to falsely claim that illegal aliens have a low crime rate which is false as to murder as they are overrepresented in our prisons in regard to that crime and other crimes of violence, and second to claim that it was racist to state the simple fact that if our immigration laws were enforced, Ms. Tibbetts would be alive today.

    From Texas:

    According to DHS status indicators, over 261,000 criminal aliens have been booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011 and July 31, 2018, of which over 175,000 were classified as illegal aliens by DHS.

    Between June 1, 2011 and July 31, 2018, these 175,000 illegal aliens were charged with more than 273,000 criminal offenses which included arrests for 505 homicide charges; 30,408 assault charges; 5,396 burglary charges; 34,555 drug charges; 365 kidnapping charges; 15,100 theft charges; 22,213 obstructing police charges; 1,569 robbery charges; 3,212 sexual assault charges; 2,022 sexual offense charges; and 2,754 weapon charges. DPS criminal history records reflect those criminal charges have thus far resulted in over 112,000 convictions including 225 homicide convictions; 12,540 assault convictions; 2,967 burglary convictions; 16,762 drug convictions; 152 kidnapping convictions; 6,741 theft convictions; 10,720 obstructing police convictions; 950 robbery convictions; 1,567 sexual assault convictions; 1,076 sexual offense convictions; and 1,194 weapon convictions.

    Jesus Christ was crucified for the sin of blasphemy, for saying that He was the Son of God.
    Islam puts to death people whom they consider blasphemers. Persons responding to the gift of Faith from God without harming any other person are executed for their religious expression innocent of any crime.
    We have the wall of separation of church and state. Sins are forgiven by the church. Crimes are punished by the state.
    Love God and your neighbor as yourself. If a person is heterosexual, it stands to reason that he must love his neighbor through his heterosexual self. All of these lawsuits against heterosexual bakers is a violation of loving thy neighbor as thyself. It is the state imposing homosexuality on heterosexual citizens.
