  • Another victory for law

    NEW YORK - "The man behind a robbery-massacre at a Wendy's restaurant was sentenced to death Tuesday, more than two years after he and an accomplice herded seven employees into a freezer and murdered five of them."

    "John Taylor, 38, stood stone-faced as the jury's decision was read while the victims' family wept quietly in the courtroom. He was sentenced to die by injection for killing two of the employees, but prosecutors say he plotted the attack and commanded his mentally retarded accomplice to kill."

    "The robbery netted about $2,400, mostly coins." ...
    -------
    Wendy's had an anti-self-defense policy, and it's not exactly easy to get a handgun "permit" in Queens, New York. The restaurant is partly responsible, as is the City. May each be sued into oblivion for denial of basic human rights.

    That's as bad as saying the gun manufacturers are partly responsible when one of their products is used in a crime. They knew the policy when they took the job. No one foced them to work there.

      No Frank, it has to do with the government indoctrinated mindset of "call 911".

        To expand even more, how many times do you see the endless parade of victims on news reports? We hear it everyday, "He was such a nice boy", "Or we never thought it couldn't happen here", or "This peacful neighborhood was shaken today by yet another senseless crime of gun violence, leaving homeowners wondering how they can "feel" safer, clamoring for more protection from police."

        Why do "they" think that? Because they are indoctronated by the government to think that way. Places that have outlawed self defense from the predators the government turns loose on us are evil. Very evil, and the politicians in said places are akin the Adolph Hitler. Or any other citizen slaughtering politician/ruler from the 20th century. Take your pick, there are plenty.

        Just take a look at what "lawmakers" do. They make laws, all the time. They sit around and think up laws that certain groups want passed. Since these groups pay the politicians, they pass laws.

        Laws like the one that let a violent offender off prison early for "good behavior", even though Texas prison officials said he was not a well behaved person, and allowed him to murder his girl friend and 5 employees at an Irving Texas car wash several years ago. He had not been out of the pen a year, when he exposed himself to a patron of the car wash and was dealt with by his boss. He then returned and "dealt" with them with a 9mm.

        If anyone is interested his name is Robert Wayne Harris. When this happened it was reported on WFAA the he was released 8 years early from an 18 year sentence. Public outrage had this tidbit of info squelched.

        It's these kind of people, and the politicians that allow them access to society, that make events like the Wendys murder all the more possible.

        And still some would have us believe that we are safe and need only call 911. So, when will the next BOHICA begin?

        I also wrote several letters to a local newspaper, but after several discussions with them, they refused to print it. It put blame partly on the politicians who allow these animals out, and since the info about his early release had been hidden, they refused to print the letter.

          In cases like that, I still say (and have volunteered my "services") that someone should be empowered to legally follow these people after their illegal release from prison. Then when, not if, the former inmate f's up, the deferred death sentence should be placed into effect immediately and they should be dispatched with shotgun to the head like any diseased dog would be. 'nuff said.

              You "Texas" boys seem to be pretty hardcore...

              A shotgun blast to the head ? Yall obviously dont understand the way things work around here...

              If you kill all of the violent offenders, just how are the anti's gonna acheive all of their objectives? They cant ya see. They wont be able to use fearmongering and spout off about more police protection.

              Its better for the anti's to let the hardcases out to kill again so that they can use the victims for their gun control propaganda. Thats how it works. I wouldnt doubt that some politician might supply them with a cheap pistol to "help em out".

                How about this?

                We let all the offenders out, and then they get to spend their first year out in the home of one of these hardcore "antis"????

                Think that'll work?

                  Hearing that had happened would be like hearing something totally unsurprising. Like my washing machine running when it's turned on.

                    Hey, now THAT is a novel concept. I have GOT to get a new washer. Right now, I have to use pliers to turn the dang thing on, and sometimes it will just up and quit before the spin cycle starts-I think that has something to do with the well pressure, though. [Wink]

                      I hate it when people blame somebody else for what another person did. You can't hold the restaurant responsible for a low-life coming in & killing people in a robbery. There is NO WAY a business can protect its employees from everything. And even if they did allow the manager or employees to have a gun on the premises, one of them would have shot the robber & a customer & they would wind up getting sued anyway. People just need to understand that bad things happen.

                        Mike, I agree with the concept of the city or state bearing some responsibility when they deny citizens their right to arms and defense. OTOH,the employees and customers made a decision to be at Wendys. While I think their no carry policy is stupid, I believe in their right to make that stupid decision.

                          Bill, the problem is that people are conditioned to think they are safe.

                          My main complaint is letting this guy out before he served his time. The law was wrong.

                            Yes, and BECAUSE the law is wrong, in this case, I feel that the CONVICTED FELON should be the one to suffer the consequences. NOT the innocent public that is much like sheep to this wolf.

                            Sorry, 'nuther sore subject with yours truly....
