With deep dismay I have recently read the above called article (Okla. death row inmate Gary Welch has been executed) in the McAlester News-Capital.
This is really not a glorious chapter for the state of Oklahoma. It is a big tragedy and fills me with rage and sadness.
Shame on this.
Modern, civilized and democratic countries don’t kill human beings. Definetely.
It is high time to abolish executions in Oklahoma and elsewhere in the world.
No doubt about it.
The death principle is cruel and unusual punishment, only following the old fashioned, cold bloody and unfair cowboy justice principle:
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth (if you shed someone else’s blood you own blod will be shed), practiced in the dark Middle Ages period and in the obscure and nefarious wild west era (John Wayne, Gary Cooper or Buffalo Bill are greeting us !) many centuries ago.
I oppose the death penalty, because it harms victims’ families by giving a false promise that an execution will heal our pain.
Executions only create more violence, pain and shattered lives.
I oppose the death penalty because I believe in Mercy and Grace. I prefer the golden and fair principle: DON’T RETURN THE LIKE.
I oppose the death penalty because it is fiscally irresponsible for a nation to maintain the death penalty system.
In addition, the death penalty is just plain wrong.
The state of Oklahoma needs to abolish the death penalty, as other civilized nations (like for example Canada, Australia, Great Britain, France or Germany) had already done it long time ago. Governor Mary Fallin should copy the Goverrnor of Oregon John Kitzhaber, who had recently decided that nobody will be executed anymore during his term of office.
I oppose the death penalty for everyone! This family doesn’t deserve to be made new victims by the death sentence.
In the ten commandments of God which you can find in the bible, you can read : YOU SHALL NOT KILL.
This is valid for everyone (for the state of Oklahoma inclusive).
Let us create together a peaceful world without state executions.
The world will become a much better place, absolutely.
GOD BLESS OKLAHOMA.
Proposed resettlement of Syrians ‘act of deranged insanity’
My question to the public is: are we going to stand by and let this happen?
Letter to the Editor:
There are plans to cut expenses of government, yet cuts aren’t always justified and if they affect people directly, there is a lot of unhappiness. Plans to close the Social Security office in Hugo is a recent example.
Letter to the Editor:
The President is in Israel saying “we’re a democracy.” I like to think I’m pretty “up” on current events but I guess I missed this major change in our government.
Editor: Who's in charge of you?
You don’t need that! We have been hearing a lot of that lately, mostly by the left, but also by the right. They are mostly talking about semi-automatic rifles and large-capacity magazines this time. Of course, we don’t need them

Recently, on May 4, we had a client who came into our center seeking assistance. She was not seeking food, or help with utilities, or for any type of physical needs. Her need was more for someone just to listen.
