Lines On Capital Punishment​

   We Hang Murders.                 

We hang murders,
Or some way kill them sure.
To punish them, we do.
Teach the lesson, true                                
Once more.

We hang murders,
Build them scaffolds new,
To punish them, so we do.
We shoot, we poison,
Electrocute them too.
Mete justice, so we do.
Once More.

We hang murderers,
On behalf of you,
Well, someone told us to
Punish them, so we do.

We hang murders,
Robbers, swindlers, too,
Poachers, vagrants,
Maybe even you.
A longer list we grew,
Punish them, we do
Teach a lesson to,
Spouses and children too.

Teen killed by stray bullet while police fire at dog during response to ‘loud music’

Sometimes one feels the urgent, compelling need to scream. At least somebody would hear. Sure, that might relieve outrage, anger and disappointment, until tomorrow when the same thoughtlessness repeats and another family grieves. But citizens are not merely frustrated, the scream will be heard, citizens want authorities to listen and to act positively. It is a public safety issue that words directly from Attorney General, Jeff Sessions tells that he doesn’t know or want to learn, about very serious occurrences taking place in the United States. This is not a training issue.
