Since Home Secretary @patel4witham recently tried to deny that she's in favour of the #deathpenalty & the US Govt has announced it's bringing back federal death penalty, I've been thinking about the women in my book Women and the Gallows 1797 to 1837 THREAD 1/n
Also every time I watch A Handmaid's Tale, I think of the mass hangings in the #18thc, where up to 20 people were dispatched in one go. Also the grim accidents at hangings where the rope snapped or people watching were killed in the crush. But most of all, I think of.. 2/n
Eliza Fenning, accused of attempting to murder a family by poisoning dumplings. No one died. Almost certainly innocent (I only qualify it bc there is no way to be ABSOLUTELY sure). She had a deeply unfair trial heard by a judge determined to kill her. She was shown no mercy. 3/n

As Parliament amends #POCSO to include the death penalty, a closer look shows that political posturing contrasts with reality. Politicians are often the ones protecting the rapist-killer. Pinki Virani takes a look at this scenario. #FPthreads 1/18
In November 2013, after more than seven months of work, Pinki Virani filed a PIL regarding cases which involved crimes upon children by adults. There were four identified cases – four children in different states murdered by five rapists. 2/18
All cases had been awarded the #DeathPenalty by all three tiers of courts and yet, all of the convicted rapists were still very much alive, living on tax-payers' money in jails, till 2013; the SC had awarded their death sentences in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2008. 3/18

How do you attempt to keep the 'narrative' in play [control the 'sheep']?

Nadler called the grand jury materials “critically important” for their investigation.

If they could, they'd be doing state executions as well.
The US is the only Western nation with the #deathpenalty.
And it's disgraceful.

Trump Justice Department to resume federal executions thehill.com/homenews/admin…
It is surprising to me that many people seem not to know that we have the #DeathPenalty in America at both the federal and state level and that it is being enforced regularly. Three executions have been carried out in Texas alone this year.
This is why I highlighting #Biden.
With #incarceration & 1994 Crime Bill key points in debates, #Biden coming out against the #DeathPenalty after being one of its strongest proponents for nearly 50yrs seems like a headline to me. And just one day before Barr signing new execution orders.

"Five death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society — children and the elderly". But muh conspiracy theories.

So @JoeBiden continues to flip stances he's held for 40+ years.
Today it was the #deathpenalty.
As with the #HydeAmendment, I'm not objecting--I'm against Hyde & against the death penalty, so I welcome these 180 shifts in policy.
But why no headline for such a major shift?
1/
#Biden has been one of the staunchest voices for the death penalty for decades. In his 1994 Crime Bill, Biden expanded the #deathpenalty with Title VI, the Federal Death Penalty Act, creating 60 new death penalty offenses under 41 federal capital statutes.
2/
Obama favored expanding the #deathpenalty to include executing child rapists and in 2008 talked about it while campaigning.
Obama didn't soften his position until 2014 & never ceased support for the death penalty. Biden shared that view until...today.

New Hampshire abolished execution today. Good news. It's worth thinking for a minute about the history of death penalty abolition, lest we think it's a product of our recent wokeness.

#deathpenalty thread. Should be grading papers so it'll be long.

appealpolitics.org/2019/new-hamps…
Enlightenment Americans wanted to set America apart from Old Europe, and thought banning the death penalty would be a good way to do it. Thomas Jefferson tried to further limit Virginia's death penalty to murder and treason. The measure failed by one vote.
American thinkers like Jefferson, Benjamin Rush, John Adams, and others were all reading an exciting new zine by Italian thinker Cesare Beccaria, which, among other things opposed capital punishment because it was a tool of dictators.

#MichaelKovrig & #MichaelSpavor have been formally arrested after 150+ days in detention (specifically #RSDL). A thread explaining a bit about what this means and why there are still so many things that we don't know (and likely will not know anytime soon). 1/
There is often confusion in English b/c, well, #Kovrig & #Spavor have been locked up for 5+ months, which looks like an "arrest." But "arrest" here is "逮捕" -- a specific procedure that goes through prosecutors (aka the procuratorate or procuracy). 2/
chinanews.com/gn/2019/05-16/…
This means the cases are still in the investigation phase but now the prosecutors are directly involved as well as the public security forces. In garden-variety cases, Chinese prosecutors sometimes disagree with police (though very rarely in public). Do NOT expect that here. 3/

#FACTSMATTER: Palestinians collaborated with Hitler and killed hundreds of Jews who ended up in Israel. @RepRashida @Ilhan @SpeakerPelosi @DNC need to STOP blaming Republicans for being more educated, READ A HISTORY BOOK & apologize. #ProveMeWrong

Why does the House Democratic leadership continue to enable @IlhanMN @RashidaTlaib normalizing #Islam and paint them as some kind of "#womensrights" crusaders?

#FACTSMATTER: Islam teaches that a woman is worth less than a man. #ShariaLaw #ProveMeWrong

I’m far from a #Brunei expert/reporter (ping @ainbandial @tashny) but I’m seeing international media report the sultan’s announcement about the moratorium of the #deathpenalty as a “dramatic U-turn” and… that doesn’t seem quite right.
@ainbandial @tashny The truth is that #Brunei has been listed as "de facto abolitionist” when it comes to the #deathpenalty, which means that, while capital punishment is still in law, it hasn’t actually been practised (i.e. no executions) for at least 10 years.
@ainbandial @tashny While I find it interesting the sultan felt the need to come out and reiterate the moratorium—and do think that international pressure had something to do with it—calling it a “u-turn” obscures the fact that not carrying out executions isn’t a new thing, but long established.

OK. This may be a longish thread, trying to unpack today's developments in the #ChristopherPrice case. @DPInfoCtr #Alabama #deathpenalty. Here goes: ...
1) Yesterday the 11th Circuit upheld the same federal district court's decision denying Price's application for a stay of execution. deathpenaltyinfo.org/files/pdf/Pric… @DPInfoCtr #ChristopherPrice #Alabama #deathpenalty.
2) That decision agreed with Price that, under the Eighth Amendment, nitrogen hypoxia is available as an alternative method of execution, even if Price missed the statutory deadline for opting-in to select it as his preferred method of execution. #ChristopherPrice #deathpenalty.

Harris ran for DA as anti-death penalty. She was elected. Those who are pro-death penalty will always object. Harris is right. Reviving this 15yrs later panders to the #GOP.

How Kamala Harris' death penalty decisions broke hearts on both sides cnn.com/2019/04/08/pol…
Clarifying that I meant #Harris was right on her death penalty stance and that it is my stance that @CNN reviving this story is the pandering aspect.

One feels for the widow, but we are not served by the death penalty in a civilized society..
@CNN What should be the takeaway from this tragic story for 2020 is that as a young prosecutor--and the first woman, first black woman, first Asian American woman--#KamalaHarris stood up against literally everyone because she knew, as should we all, that the #deathpenalty is wrong.

Will Smith-Mundt and 1A protect them? Might some in MSM be charged in conspiracy to commit sedition? Will they play dumb to try to wiggle out of legal trouble? “We were just reporting what the Reps and Senators were saying”.

Well....as someone who opposes the #deathpenalty & has written extensively about it, 30 states still have the death penalty & there are nearly 3k people on death row in the US right now.
There are 744 people on death row in CA
353 in FL
232 in TX
185 in AL
160 in PA
144 in OH
1/
There SHOULD be a debate over the #deathpenalty because life on death row is a special kind of hell and should be against the 8th amendment as it is cruel and unusual punishment. The DP is also whimsically applied. Ending it would also save millions.
2/
deathpenaltyinfo.org/death-row-inma…
There is no rational reason for the #deathpenalty.
People have been released from death row after having been found innocent.
Claims that it serves as a deterrent have been proven false.
The cost of a death row prisoner is $2M.
It is fundamentally immoral & benefits no one.

The #POTUS tweeted this afternoon about the obstruction Democrats have placed in the Senate. Dems have been blocking up to 2 years historic-record. If, we see the twit time: 4:43. We look for the #Q drop 443 and we see what the President or #Q+ & Q want to tell us.

A select group of white hats know that Assange helped them save America from the clutches of EVIL. I wonder if they have enough to power to keep Assange safe? The Democrats are out to 'eliminate' Assange.

@thehill So these are the @DNC pathetic talking points now? The writers of them are terrified, because they know all the laws they broke and the penalties they face. And you, Mr. #BillMaher, are a patsy and falling for them.

I actually thought you were smarter than that.
@thehill @DNC Along those lines, the only ones to use the term “red line in the sand” were @BarackObama and @HillaryClinton, which says where these TPs are coming from. And her lawyers orchestrating the #StealTheVote down in #FL and #AZ reinforces it.

Looks like #DeathPenalty is possible.
@thehill @DNC @BarackObama @HillaryClinton Apparently @HillaryClinton was not kidding when she said if @POTUS won their necks were in nooses!
