Boy, 8, killed protecting his 7yo sister from sex abuse, what should we do with the killer? [POLL]

Published

on

Deandre Chaney, Jr. was caught in the act of sexually abusing a 7-year-old girl by her 8-year-old brother. Chaney beat little Dante Daniels with a hammer. Dante died six days later.

“This guy beat my grandson with a hammer. Down to his spine. They couldn’t save his brain,” Dante’s grandmother Monique Brown told KTXL.

We know justice should be blind, and should be administered fairly. But here’s a case we could call “open and shut.”

Chaney is the ex-boyfriend of Dante’s mother, 28-year-old Elizabeth Salone. At some point, investigators say the suspect turned the hammer and knife on Salone and the 7-year-old girl.

Salone sustained an eye injury during the altercation and will “probably never see out of her left eye,” Brown said.

The family harvested little Dante’s heart, which was transplanted to a 4-year-old in California. But Chaney, who was apprehended hiding under a tarp in a back yard shed, still lives. This wasn’t his first run-in with the law, or as a sexual offender. He had an outstanding warrant for failing to register as a sex offender, and other assault and battery charges dating back to 2011.

What should be done with Chaney?

Certainly, the death penalty exists for people like this.

California has not carried out a death sentence in eleven years. But a Supreme Court ruling on a voter ballot initiative, Proposition 66, may lead to resumption of executions in the state.

After 11-year hiatus, could death penalty soon be carried out again in California? – LA Times

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-death-row-qa-20170824-htmlstory.htmlCalifornia has not executed an inmate since 2006 because of issues related to the lethal injection method used. Courts struck down California’s previous three-drug lethal injection method, and Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration did not propose a new protocol until last year.

California’s death row is the largest in the country, and more than 15 prisoners have exhausted their appeals and could be executed.

What do you think?

It takes years for a death penalty case to wind its way through the courts. While someone like Chaney could easily earn a death sentence from a jury, he’d likely spend decades on death row, waiting.

Meanwhile, little Dante lost his entire life. This argument is solely about the 8th Amendment, prohibiting “cruel and unusual punishment.” That’s why certain kinds of lethal injection are no longer performed in America, because the three-drug protocol is banned in most of the world where the drugs are made, and those countries won’t sell it to us anymore.

Would it be cruel to sentence convicts of capital crimes against children to life without parole, the entire sentence in solitary confinement? Would it be cruel to sentence these convicts to a quick death by other means?

As for me, I’d be perfectly fine if they went medieval on Chaney. Drawing and quartering is too good for someone like that.

What do you think? Take our poll.

Nancy Pelosi blames misogyny for Democrats opposing her as Speaker

Nancy Pelosi believes she’ll be Speaker of the House again. Her caucus controls the vote. She was Speaker before. Most Democrats support her. Most.

A vocal group of 17 (and counting) Democrats in Congress have declared they will not support her for Speaker of the House. Though no official challenge has stepped up, there are speculations that a younger, more progressive Democrat will emerge. Given the state of the party and the shift to the left, it’s very possible her path to the gavel will be bumpy.

Predictably, Pelosi is blaming her challenges on misogyny. It’s the patriarchy WITHIN the Democratic Party that is allegedly keeping her down. Because, well, of course that’s the reason. It’s always the reason.

The best thing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ever said

The freshman congressional sensation from New York, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has made some pretty awful remarks about the economy. She was so proud of answering, “You just pay for it,” when asked how to pay for the $32 trillion price tag on her proposed healthcare plan that she posted it on social media.

For someone with a degree in economics, her ideas seem to be fueled by something other than economic logic. That didn’t stop her from making a short but incredible statement about the economy.

“I don’t think most of Congress understands how economics works.”

I agree. I also think her presence in Congress isn’t going to raise the level of economic understanding any time soon. Welcome to Washington DC, Congresswoman!

Israel appoints first Christian ambassador

Most appointed bureaucrats and representatives in Israel are Jewish. Cultural diversity has been on the rise in the Jewish state and is starting to be reflected in government as they appointed their first Christian Arab ambassador.

George Deek will soon be Israel’s ambassador to Azerbaijan. It is an important relationship for Israel as the Muslim majority nation is one of Israel’s largest arms markets. They also supply about 40% of Israel’s oil.

“We are proud of his appointment, which perfectly symbolizes the integration of Israelis from different backgrounds in the representation of the state,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

Deek is currently a senior adviser to Director-General Yuval Rotem. His diplomatic experience is wide with stints serving the ministry in Norway and Nigeria.
