It seems we have some competition for Sally Kern, Chris Buttars and some of the other vile state legislators around the country. Rep. Brad Drake of Florida thinks there should be more options for the death penalty.
One Florida state Rep. is proposing a big change to the way his state handles executions. Brad Drake, a Republican, filed a bill Tuesday to eliminate lethal injection and bring back executions by electrocution or firing squad.
“We still have Old Sparky. And if that doesn’t suit the criminal, then we will provide them a .45 caliber lead cocktail instead,” he said in a press release.
And here’s how he comes up with his legislative ideas:
According to the Florida Current, the idea came to him in a local Waffle House. He reportedly overheard a constituent say that “they ought to just put them in the electric chair or line them up in front of a firing squad.”
“There shouldn’t be anything controversial about a .45-caliber bullet. If it were up to me we would just throw them off the Sunshine Skyway bridge and be done with it,” Drake told the Current…
Drake expressed frustration over how long the process took. “I am sick and tired of this sensitivity movement for criminals,” he said. “Every time there is a warranted execution that is about to take place, some man or woman is standing on a corner holding a sign, yelling and screaming for humane treatment.”
The sad thing is that this little wannabe thug is probably doing himself some electoral good by taking such a position.
