Going Back In Time



The present US attorney general

wants to bring back firing squads and


while only 10% of US states in 2020 and

only 20 of 195 countries in 2019

have conducted prisoner murder



Michigan hasn't had an execution since 1837, Wisconsin none since 1853, Maine none since 1887.

On Dec 10, 2020 Brandon Bernard after 21 years in jail was

murdered because of the actions of the 'prolife' AG, the 'prolife' resident of the White House, and the 5 'prolife' Republican Catholics and 1 'prolife' Republican Episcopalian on the Supreme Court.

Not since 1889 until this month has a lame duck administration murdered a federal prisoner. The prisoner was a black man sentenced by an allwhite federal jury.


The Huffington Post reported that 5 of 9 surviving jurors who

sentenced Bernard to death asked for clemency as did his prosecutor, several congresspersons, 23 current and former prosecutors, the editorial board of the Washington Post, and lawyers Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr.


 Premeditation has evolved to have the connotation of violence while meditation is a spiritual exercise promoting peace and nonviolence. Judges

on the Supreme Court have become serially killing exectioners premeditating

their murder of prisoners, with a pen as the weapon.


"The state cannot give life but demands the right to take it."  Frederick C Davis and

   Harry O Hoyt'

None of us should be judged by the worst moments in our lives.   Helen Prejean.


Charles Darwin called judicial execution an act of premeditated murder and termed those humans who clamor for capital punishment hyenas.

Agatha Christie: "The judge murders within the law". Some report the family may now have 'closure'. There is no closure in

vengeful continuation of the cycle of violence.

Mercy In Tennessee



Edmund Zagorski received no
mercy but electrocution.
Edmund Zagorski received no
mercy but execution.
Footnote:  Update:
 Gov Haslam denied mercy for Ed Zagorski.
6 jurors from Mr. Zagorski’s trial had asked the Tennessee governor Haslam to commute his sentence to life without parole. The jurors had unconstitutionally been prevented from giving that sentence in 1984. Zagorski worked to rehabilitate himself, is remorseful about his action and has had no disciplinary issues in 34 years of incarceration. God give Zagorski mercy. He has asked that if the state refuses mercy he be electrocuted/  Now Governor Bill Lee is still executing

Abolition websites:
Only 8 of 50 US states murdered prisoners in 2018. 42 refused.
All eight have Republican governors while the 2016 Democratic platform called for an end to execution. The 8 states are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas. Ohio is the only northern state involved. Follwoing are
groups working to end prisoner murder and align the US with the
over 81% of the world which does not execute.

Human Chauvinists Discuss How To Exterminate Millions Of Fishes

user img




On an NPR network show, John Flesher of the AP was discussing as if it were a good thing the electroshocking of Asian carp along the Illinois River.  Human beings have outlawed the electric chair whose advent included the public electrocution of prisoners and elephants by Thomas Edison.  A second method is electric barriers, somewhat like the electric barbed wire fences used to harm animals trying to escape ranches.

No one discussed the danger to human children and adults from river electrocution and electrically charged river barriers.


He and the radio host were also upset that Asian carp were jumping in to boats. No one discusseed the trillions of fishes who have been drawn, quartered and chopped up by motorboat propellers and that these fishes were jumping into the boats to escape the propellers and the electrocution both.

Dave Wethington, engineer and project manager with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the ecocidal agency which was co-responsible for the Katrina flooding of New Orleans, discussed spending EIGHTEEN BILLION DOLLARS to eliminate Asian carp from the Great Lakes.  He said fish were sometimes ‘incapacitated’ by the electric barriers.  The actual word should be ‘killed’. The Army Corps has been silent about white pelicans who are eating the Asian carp.


Who are promoting the destruction of Asian carp?  Those who make their living from fish suffocation.  It is just recently that the mercury level of Lake Erie was considered low enough that people could risk eating mercury-saturated memory-destroying fish. Fukushima has been filling the Pacific with radiation. If you want to glow in the dark, eat fish who are polluted by illegal nuclear waste dumping by many countries into the Atlantic and Pacific.

Still othes who think humans have a right to kill fishes have said Asian carp flesh is prized in China and Europe and that their cadavers can be ground up for food for captive mammals.


It is the most intelligent, adaptable and strong species which humans, the most invasive species on earth, attempt to eliminate.  Asian carp are plankton eaters.

Asian carp are environmental cleaners. Human waste spilling over into lakes and rivers is cleaned up by Asian carp.

Asian carp have been in the Great Lakes for 10 years and have not been eliminating other species.

Fisheating is correlated to stomach cancer, arthritis, anaphylactic shock and hundreds of other diseases.

Meanwhile the invasive human species has killed one half billion fish with chemical spills or intentional poisoning near Barkley Dam
