Robbie did some research!

Robbie from UrbanGrounds has a great analysis of some of the people that would benefit from yesterday's SCOTUS decision to declare the execution of anyone younger than 18 unconstitutional. Here are some of the charming, delightful people that we as a society are going to let live:

The following men all committed horrendous and deliberate murders when they were 17 years old. They are currently sitting on Texas’ death row. Because of this new Court decision, they will probably be spared the fate they deserve:

Raul Villarreal — Convicted for kidnapping and killing Jennifer Ertman (14) and Elizabeth Pena (16). The girls had taken a shortcut home. Each girl was repeatedly raped by Villarreal and his fellow gang members, and then strangled to death. Villarreal later bragged that he stepped on the neck of Jennifer Ertman in an effort to strangle her because the “bitch wouldn’t die” after being strangled with a belt.

Robert Acuna — Convicted of killing two elderly neighbors, James and Joyce Carroll, shooting them “execution style” and then stealing their car.

Geno Wilson — On 12/02/98 on the streets of Houston, Texas, Wilson shot an adult male during a robbery attempt. The victim was reportedly selling bottles of cleaning solution on the street and was approached by Wilson and 3 black male companions. Wilson indicated he would buy a bottle of the cleaning solution then produced a handgun and pointed it at the head of the victim, demanding cash. When the victim denied having any cash, Wilson shot him once in the back of the head.

Bruce Williams — On 02/03/99, during the nighttime, Williams abducted two Asian females. The victims were forced by Williams at gunpoint to go to a wooded area where he then shot both of the victims. One victim survived the shooting and called police.

Tran Son — Tran and three others lured a man to a club in Houston and murdered him because of his relationship with a woman who worked at the club. Tran and the others involved learned that another woman who worked at the club was aware of their identities. Tran and two of the others drove that woman to a secluded beach and shot her in the head, resulting in her death. Tran and two others then became concerned that the fourth person involved in the first murder might not keep their secret. The fourth person was lured to a meeting under false pretenses. He brought a friend along. Tran and one of the others shot and killed the fourth person and his friend. Prosecution for the death of theses last two murders resulted in the capital murder conviction for Tran.

Whitney Reeves — On 8/20/1999, Reeves and one co-defendant shot and killed a 14 year old white female and her father, a 40 year old white male, with a 12 gauge shotgun. The double homicide occurred at the victims’ apartment in Beaumont. The apparent motive for the shooting was that the 14-year-old girl had testified at a grand jury hearing that resulted in charges of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child against the co-defendant.

Michael Lopez — On 09/29/98, during the early morning hours in Houston, shot and killed a 26 year old Deputy constable on a routine traffic stop.

Jorge Salinas — On 07/28/2001 in Mission, Texas, Salinas and 2 co-defendants fatally shot a 29 year old Hispanic male 1 time with a 12 gauge shotgun and caused the death of a 21 month old Hispanic female by abandoning her in an area where she was not likely to be found. Salinas and 2 co-defendants carjacked the victim for his 2001 Chevy Malibu vehicle. Salinas and 2 co-defendants then dumped the 29 year old Hispanic male victim in an orchard and took the 21 month old Hispanic female child, while strapped in her car seat, and placed her in a tall grassy area. Salinas and co-defendants fled in the victim’s vehicle.

Aww... doesn't that just warm your heart? These are just some crazy mixed-up kids who need a good stern talking to, right? I mean, really, we all got into some mischief when we were kids, right? Who among us hasn't stepped on the neck of someone we raped because they wouldn't die? We've all been there; it's a part of growing up!

In all seriousness, it's simply disgusting that these little beasts are allowed to live in my country and breath the same air as I do. Thank you, 5/9 of SCOTUS! Thank you for your service to this country! If you guys ever come down to Yorba Linda, look me up so that I can high five you for protecting neck-stomping rapists.

(Props to Robbie for all that research! Great blog!)

(Thanks to reader Alex who pointed out that I kept writing "SOCUS" and not "SCOTUS". Of course SCOTUS refers to the Supreme Court of the United States, as opposed to SOCUS which refers to the Southern Ohio Canes and Umbrellas Society. So far, SOCUS has not appointed itself sole arbiter of law in America while SCOTUS has. My apologies.)

Phil, Phil, Phil... you neglect to mention that these poor murderers didn't receive enough attention from their parents in their tender years, thus compelling them to stomp on the necks of their victims when they wouldn't die quickly enough from the multiple gunshot wounds.

Dude, my bad. The aforementioned "bitch" died from strangulation, not multiple gunshot wounds. However, this mistake is a direct result of my mom not posting my language arts homework on the fridge when I was in the third grade, which set me on a irreversible collision course with sloppy reading comprehension skills. Please direct all comments to this end to my mother, as I am not responsible for this under modern Supreme Court jurisprudence.

Well, I've never been accused of being a sensitive guy.

If the parents are at fault for their monster kids, maybe we can execute them instead since they were (mostly) over 18 when they had the kids...

Phil...thanks for the link.

I'm a big fan of law enforcement (always wanted to be a cop, but didn't act on it soon enough, and now I'm too old), so it's nice to find your blog.

Some good stuff in here. I'll be checking back often.
