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

Published

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.

As Israel destroys Hezbollah's terror tunnels, Benjamin Netanyahu issues a warning

Hezbollah was caught red-handed building tunnels from Lebanon to Israel for the sole purpose of transporting soldiers, terrorists, and weapons across the border for future attacks on Israel. This isn’t disputed, but there still seems to be a false sense of outrage towards Israel for destroying them.

There’s no way to tell how Hezbollah expected Israel to react, but they have grown increasingly threatening as the fruits of their labors are being systematically demolished. Some fear retaliation for Israel’s efforts to protect itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it crystal clear any actions taken against the demolition process will be met by extreme force.

“If Hezbollah makes the mistake, and decides, in any way, to attack us or to oppose our operation, they will be hit with unimaginable blows.”

France shooting: 2 dead, several wounded in Strasbourg

France shooting 2 dead several wounded in Strasbourg

PARIS (AP) — A shooting in the French city of Strasbourg killed two people and wounded up to eight others, officials said, sparking a major security operation around a world-famous Christmas market on Tuesday. Authorities said the shooter remains at large.

The motive for the shooting is unclear. It wasn’t immediately clear if the market was the target of the attack or if there was any link to terrorism.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner told reporters that the gunman has been identified, and had a police record for common crimes. He several of the wounded were in critical condition and that he was heading to Strasbourg.

The French Interior Ministry called on the public to remain indoors.

“Our security and rescue services are mobilized,” Castaner said.

Local authorities tweeted for the public to “avoid the area of the police station,” which is close to the city’s Christmas market. Strasbourg’s well-known market is set up around the city’s cathedral during the Christmas period and becomes a major gathering place.

Images from the scene show police officers, police vehicles and barricades surrounding the sparkling lights of the market.

The European Parliament, which is based in Strasbourg, was on lockdown. Spokesman Jaume Duch said that “the European Parliament has been closed and no one can leave until further notice.” It wasn’t immediately clear how many people were inside.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that “my thoughts are with the victims of the shooting …. Strasbourg is like no other a city which is a symbol of peace and European democracy.”

France has been hit by several extremist attacks, including the 2015 Paris shootings, which killed 130 people and wounded hundreds, and a truck attack in Nice that killed dozens in 2016.

Some Strasbourg residents have reported on social media that they heard gunfire in some parts of the city center.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe tweeted that “the situation is still underway, priority is given to security forces and rescuers.”

President Emmanuel Macron has adjourned a meeting at the presidential palace on Tuesday night to be able to monitor the events, his office said.

Strasbourg, about 500 kilometers (310 miles) east of Paris, is on the border with Germany.

We need the wall. Tell Chuck and Nancy how you feel.

We need the wall Tell Chuck and Nancy how you feel

There are many no-brainers that can’t seem to get done in Washington DC. Term limits. Reduction of powers. Balanced budgets. Addressing the national debt. The border wall.

This last one is in our grasp. We have a President who is ready to build it. Republicans on Capitol Hill failed to make it happen while they had the power and they paid the price in the House during the midterm elections. Now, we need to ramp up the pressure. This needs to be funded. Now.

Opposition to the border wall is untenable. We are a sovereign nation that has always embraced legal immigration, but illegal immigration has been one of the greatest threats to our sovereignty and security for too long. Will the wall solve it? No. Will it go a very, very long way towards mitigating the damage and allowing us to focus on additional solutions? Absolutely.

Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Nancy Pelosi are opposed to the wall. The latter will likely have the power soon to block the wall indefinitely. This cannot be allowed. We need to secure funding and start building the wall in earnest immediately. Not next year. Not after the 2020 election. The opportunity is now and we must take it.

Twitter is the most visible way of letting them know how you feel. If you are on Twitter, let them know by Tweeting this.

If you’re not on Twitter or you want to reach them in other ways, you can do so…

Let them know you are in wholehearted support of building a border wall immediately and any actions they make to block it will not be tolerated. We have the power of our votes. We can express our outrage. We can make them hear us.

Now is not the time for partisan politics. This should be an easy bipartisan issue to solve. The border wall is as blatantly necessary as the air we breath. Spread the word. Make them hear us.
