Firing Squad Or Hanging? California GOP A.G. Candidate Wants Death Penalty For Corrupt Lawmakers

April 4, 2014 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A Republican candidate for California attorney general said Friday that state lawmakers who are found guilty of crimes that endanger the lives of others should face the death penalty.

Phil Wyman, who spent 17 years in the state Legislature, said he was motivated by the case of Democratic Sen. Leland Yee. Yee faces federal charges that include an attempt to coordinate an international gun-running scheme from the Philippines.

throw them in a shark tank at seaworld

see if there is any professional courtesy.

I can stand behind this bill.

I can stand behind this bill. Something like this is long over due. It should be extremely painful and unrewarding for those who choose the path of corruption. The executions should also be public, as to deter other would-be scumbags..

But wait, before we go pass this bill or that, can we please start enforcing the penalties of treason? The entire governmental body has been infected with treasonous, criminal-minded individuals. It's time to start prosecuting and executing.

Who gets to define

'endangering the lives of others'? Too vague, thus too easily abused, imo...

Hard labor won't work. When the traitor psychopaths get out, they quickly get back into political positions & make up for lost time. Capital punishment is better. No incumbents. Not to worry. This will never happen. Our controllers, the chosen, will see to that. Lots of moneyed sayanim in California.

Compassion is destroying the United States

These officials who knowingly commit crimes of this magnitude should be executed in public and it should be aired live on free broadcast television and streamed live on the internet. Viewing should be highly encouraged by all high-school age young adults. Our compassionate civilized society is destroying the United States. Hang em high and deter these assholes from committing treason.

I'm personally a fan of hard labor

Don't let em off so easily. Make em break their back everyday breaking rocks. Day in, day out, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, heavy hammer and a limitless supply of rocks.

I knew it !!!

I knew there was a good alternative to the death penalty.

HARD LABOR why it never crossed my mind before i don't know.

Life is a sexually transmitted disease with a 100% fatality rate.
Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

I would think

it is because you're not a sick, cruel, and mostly twisted bastard. It takes practice. ;)

I don't know

Do we really have to make a choice?
In this case,it appears limiting

Let it ever not be said,that I never did not do nothing for you.

Not immediately dismissable as stupidity

Most politicians on that level swear to the Oath Of Office and are bound by law. Treason would be the capitol offense.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

I'm not so sure about the hanging or a firing squad, however

They did have some good ideas, back in the day, like stocks. Once your friendly neighborhood corrupt politician sees his buddy in stocks in front of congress, it may have a deterrent effect.

Before you say "cruel and unusual", its not cruel and was not unusual back when the constitution was written.

i dont think the state has a right to kill anyone

even when its eating it own.

But I will admit, i am less upset when they do prey on themselves.
