It’s Time to Publicly Torture Mass Killers

Ants will eat anything. Even snakes. (Photo: Youtube)

It’s time we start publicly torturing mass killers. Let’s pluck out their eyes with hot pincers, splash frothing sulfuric acid on their genitals and, just about the time they’re starting to convalesce, bury them alive in a hill of agitated African army ants (“Siafu,” as they’re known in Swahili). Did I mention we should also saw off their hands and feet? No, okay, put that on the list too. We will film this spectacle and upload it to Youtube for all to see.

The message it sends will be clear. If you kill innocent school children, you will be tortured to death. It will not be pleasant. Oh no. On the contrary, it will be extremely painful. That’s what torture is. Gratuitous and unrelenting suffering.

Sure, you may think you have a foolproof plan to take innocent lives that ends rather humanely with suicide by cop or you taking your own life. Guess what? We’re are going to do everything in our power to ensure that doesn’t happen. We are going to stress the use of less-lethal force, e.g. stun guns, pepper balls, batons, etc., when apprehending you. We want you alive! And, we will make every effort to take you alive. Even if that means bringing you back from the dead.

We want you to know that killing comes at a cost. Shall you proceed you will be staring down the barrel of unthinkable hurt. Searing hot pincers, a rusty hacksaw, flesh-melting acid, and insects with piercing mandibles. We know that this must resonate with you. Because as crazy as you are you navigate society well enough to avoid discomfort. You don’t randomly run into traffic or set yourself on fire. If you did, well, you wouldn’t be the threat that you are today.

Yes, we get it. You have a death wish. But remember, it’s one thing not to fear death. Especially in abstract terms. It’s quite another not to fear being eaten alive by ants. We believe that this approach may silence those demonic voices that speak to you from the radiator or the microwave or the fern in the neighbor’s yard or whatever force it is that drives your homicidal rage.

We’re banking on the fact that pain is a universal language. Everyone speaks it fluently.  Even you. So, we are no longer going to allow the abject pain of grieving mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters to go unanswered. A reckoning is coming. Consider this your final warning.

You think that’s crazy, right? Short of crazy, it’s also unconstitutional. The 8th Amendment reads, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted” (emphasis added). While legal scholars may split hairs over what constitutes “cruel and unusual,” I don’t think anyone would disagree that what I’ve outlined above foots that bill. It is certainly cruel and certainly unusual. Ergo, it is unconstitutional.

But hey, that’s what anti-gunners want to do. They want to rewrite the constitution and repeal one’s individual right to keep and bear arms. All I’m saying is that before we shred the 2A and render the average Joe defenseless in the face of evil we ought to consider, at least, shredding the 8A. Let’s see how that plays out.

Look, we know gun control doesn’t work. Killers don’t care about gun laws. Never have, never will. Talking “gun violence prevention” strategies to eradicate mass killings at these roundtable discussions and town hall events is tantamount to banging one’s head against the wall. Given that very reasonable solutions, like hardening schools and encouraging citizens to carry concealed and cracking down on straw purchasers, are non-starters (Because they’re actually common sense workable solutions that have proven to be effective), we have to consider new alternatives to appease the anti-gun/anti-constitution lobby.

Well, here it is. Let’s start publicly torturing and executing murderers. Enough with the club fed treatment for sociopaths. No more 8×8 cell with a cushy bed and a running toilet. No more lengthy appeal process to prolong their stint on death row. And, no more easy-peasy lethal injection. It’s time to get medieval on these psychos.

(Do I really support sawing off limbs and splashing acid on convicts?  Heck no.  I oppose torture for the reasons laid out in this article. My point is that as absurd as it is to publicly torture perpetrators of mass violence it’s even more absurd to infringe on one’s right to keep and bear arms. Let’s stop the abusrdity!)

    Who carries out this sentence? Who wants to maintain a person who is capable of such acts? Torture debases the torturer almost as much as the tortured. Here is a slippery slope we may not wish to slide on.

    Punishment should fit the crime, civilized society has become so soft on crime that there are no consequences for many crimes. They say severe punishments are not a deterrent but I don’t believe it, a little brutality in the public square would surely discourage a lot of punks. The hard core whack jobs will always be there, but for the average amateur a little fear would go a long way towards prevention, but I forgot we are a civilized nation and would rather be victims for the sake of decency.

    I been saying this we need to stop with the babying of these domestic terrorist and make examples of them like we would have many years ago we gone soft and are about to be neutered With the gun bans

    I think a public execution by firing squad would be constitutional. Friday night under the lights- a night of public executions. No admission fee. Come as you are. Bring a date. Execute a dozen at a time.

    I saw some South Vietnamese interrogating an NVA using methods the NVA used against ARVN( South Vietnamese soldiers) and American soldiers.) Unfortunately, we found two G.I.’s that had been “ interrogated “ by NVA. ( we heard screaming during the nite, but NVA would scream like this, hoping we thought it was G.I.’s and ambush the patrol looking for non- existent Americans) one morning. I’m not going to describe what we saw, even though people back home thought we were all heartless, unfeeling, cold blooded killers of children! Needless to say, movies and/or tv doesn’t begin to depict the twisted bodies and contorted 18-20yr old faces!!!! Anyway, after some preliminaries the interrogators pulled out a small hammer and chisel, jammed the mouth open and started. Chipping away a tooth until the nerve was dangling free, then, use your imagination.
    I think the method of execution should fit the method the innocent were killed by. Multiple slain family members, the killer should have to experience the mental anguish suffered as each beloved kin were killed. Four dead- start off with a knee; 15-20minutes later 2nd knee; same time 1 elbow; then a head shot. Coup-de-grace! Ok. Now I’m wide open for scathing responses, from the left and right! Wonder why there was no libbie outcry when muslims were sawing heads off on tv, seen worldwide. One was an innocent American, one was a 15yr old boy who was guilty, of being a Christian! Is there a special rule that allows them a mulligan? It’s ok, because their murder book, the koran, says it’s their allah given right to be scumbags, killing Christians worldwide, where they win a trip to an oasis where 16-20( never can remember the number) whores await them? Come on libbies, explain to us the difference when you’re praising them on tv for their passionate fervor in obeying a book that murder Inc. and/or Alphonse Capone would have loved? Despite the universal belief about “those stone eyed killers, crazy Nam vets “I don’t condone torture, any info would be contaminated by the fear of the tortured. Let’s go back to our ancestors way of handling psycho’s. Turn them over to the deceased kin to do what’s necessary.
    Can’t wait until I’m turned on by the demnazis. Don’t mean nuttin’!!

    I’ve been advocating express priority handling of Court Cases and Appeals with strict timelines: totaling no more then two years from first Court Case date to execution date. I have also called for public executions to be viewed in person at nearest public ground to the crime site and televised live, by method of hanging until dead. I don’t care if neck is broken or suffocation takes them. Victims or their families may volunteer for lottery selection to actuate the drop with a designated Officer of the Court as the backup. After declared dead the body shall remain hanging (guarded) for 24 hours. The body, like the life; is forfeited. It shall be cremated and ashes buried in a undisclosed trash dump within the State.

    Next mass killer step right up!

    You’ve got it all wrong, Keep them alive and amputate their hands and feet, seize all their assets and then release them to the streets with a tattoo on their forehead and a sandwich board that states their crime. Be sure to release them in the areas that supposedly hate gun violence but support rehabilitating people that should never see the sun again and see how long they survive in the cities where most people would be their helpless and unarmed victims.

    I loved this article. The point is well taken. If you want to trample on someone’s constitutional rights, (not that you should) why trample on rights innocent gun owners? Makes more sense to trample the 8th A rights of the murderers than the 2A rights of the citizens…

        I just finished rereading my most favorite book. It was written by Robert A. Heinlein and called “Starship Troopers”. Is addition to it being a darned good action filled book, it describes a future where criminals were handed appropriately severe capital punishments. It also described how children were taught that criminals shall be punished for their crimes.

    I would get my old medic from the Special Forces A detachment I was on and make sure he has plenty of epinephrine and some other go juice to keep the shooter alive, conscious and alert. Then I would go to work on the SOB with a belt sanded with a 40 grit belt, 20 lbs of rock salt, a wire wheel on a hand drill and a bottle of battery acid. After a while with this, I would start some real shit with him…

      Keep going brother… I love your dirty talk.

    • SkyGunner May 27, 2018, 11:29 am

      Robert S. The American people have been insulated from the horrors of the world forever. They don’t know the rage that boils in your guts when the man next to you( your brother, that you form bonds with at least as strong as family) gets hit in the belly and his guts spill out on the ground. You see a man running, but he disappears. Luckily the vil was sealed, so he’s still there. All the villagers knew he was there and armed, but forgot, con byek (?) What would our genteel public do if it was their dad, brother, or some other close relative? They can’t EVEN imagine it!
      Welcome home, brother

  • Joe dotson May 24, 2018, 12:57 pm

    Maybe some should read the whole article!

  • Mike V May 24, 2018, 12:54 pm

    The fundamental flaw in your argument is that many anti 2nd amendment types are cafeteria constitutionalists. Compare and contrast only works if you care about the rule of law, following and adhering to the process whether it benefits your cause or not.

  • Blue Dog May 24, 2018, 12:18 pm

    Eighth Amendment much? The Constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishments is no less important than the much-vaunted second amendment. The Eighth Amendment is probably even more important than the second amendment, as a matter of fact.

    Besides, not too many months ago these kids were turning cameras on themselves and eating laundry detergent. As long as there is a camera on them, how much torture will they consider worth it? No publicity is bad publicity to the YouTube generation; keep any torture that isn’t happening to this kid*wink* out of the public knowledge and off of cameras.

    • Blue Dog May 25, 2018, 11:19 am

      In defense of my previous comment, let me say – I read the article before I posted. For whatever reason, when my computer displayed this article, it cut it off at the long white gap before the author reveals it as sarcasm. He raises a good point about the amendments need to be regarded more evenly and what is good for the goose being good for the gander but as our society has changed and evolved, our protections against cruel and unusual punishment, especially at times where we are in danger of falling into fascism, are a stronger bulwark to protect our democracy and population than the right to bear arms.

  • SuperG May 24, 2018, 10:30 am

    The Leftists will take the title of this article and use it against gun-owners, and Guns America, and the sheeple will not investigate for themselves. It was a poor choice of title.

    • Nicks87 May 24, 2018, 11:09 am

      No, the title has appropriate shock value. Plus, If you were smart enough to read the article before commenting you would see that the point of the article was people trying to pick and choose parts of the constitution that fit their agenda and ignoring the parts they don’t like.

  • Cliff May 24, 2018, 9:57 am

    Okay–no torture–but let it be said that no school shooter will be taken alive. After the death of the shooter, their head will be placed on a pike for a period of not less than 1 day for every victim?
