Miller Favors Death Penalty For Teacher Killers

The state Senate president calls instructors "the front line of democracy."

While some Maryland legislators want to debate the repeal of the death penalty there is one category of murder Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller would like to add to the list of capital punishment eligible cases.

Miller said Wednesday that he'd like to expand the add teacher killers to the list.

"If someone's going to go to an elementary school classroom and kill a teacher, in my opinion teachers are the front line of democracy," Miller said. "Some thug comes in with a [Bushmaster] assault rifle and mows down the kids, in my opinion they should pay the ultimate price."

Miller said he has six sisters who are teachers.

"There are no armed guards there," Miller said.

Gov. Martin O'Malley is expected to introduce a bill to repeal the death penalty in Maryland—a bill the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee will have to take up later this session.

"So when we take up this bill, I'd like to see [teacher killers] added to the list of prescribed penalties," Miller said.

The nagger seems to never leave his keyboard, has no family or friends. Has very creepy infatuations with certain posters who he terribly misses when they are on vacation. He seems to pine for my comments. 24/7 Frank the nagger bugger is here waiting for his only "friends" to show up so he won't be so isolated from society. I know quadriplegics that have more of a life and get around more than you nagger bugger Frank. When/if this site becomes more civil and tolerant of others opinions more will post. Few will with the naggers like Frank 1ke and the rabid female dog Fifi. They await on their perches for a new comment and poster to attack. Quite sick animals.

False equivalency, no one supporting LWOP endorses releasing those so sentenced. LWOP means just that. PS - Chris W you are very good at looking at the abuse from only one side. Interesting?

Your outrage has to do with the release of felons convicted of capital crimes, I see. So the solution has to do with making sure that life without parole is life without parole in a society where state-sanctioned cold-blooded murder of its citizens is not practiced.

oooohhhh...that's bait, JoeBlob....oooohh...Mr. Sears, what he said! oooohhh

Anonymous posters are immune to abuse as their real identity is protected for some odd reason...this is the flaw with patch that promotes the creation of perpetual bully snipe posters. ...Patch becomes their playground...
Buck Harmon January 29, 2013 at 01:17 PM
Patch has devolved to a site that seems to promote or host cyber bullies...their policies are enforced randomly which seem to add fuel to the continuous insults....in fact we have been told that they don't have to enforce them at all them if they choose not to... A circus full of clowns with Patch administrators as the ring leaders....

Patch is committed to open expression from what I can see. The conflict between the rigid progressive stance of some posters and the rigid reactionary stance of others frustrates you. Additionally, the difference between forms of pettiness when one group gnaws at the other galls you. These are both part of the new online conversation format. Quit whining.

1ke...cowardly snipe bully statement...
1ke January 29, 2013 at 01:26 PM
Sounds like time to roll out, eh Bucky-boy? You are one of those dudes who always plays by the rules right? I used to wind up with the lunch of guys like you. I didn't steal either. Guys like you give it away trying to find a place to fit in.

It's a virtual world, one where you do not rule just because you are extreme and emotionally volatile and beat your kids.

The rabid female dog fifi is a flaming nagger.

My so-called "real" identity is none of your blessed business and does not pertain to this virtual interaction in the least. I do not participate here in order to bolster my personal standing in any so-called "real" community or to toot my own horn or sell garbage like the paranoid wannabe video you posted about the Newtown murders. Tier 3. Take me to your leader.

Would you continue the bully snipe bait statements if you used your real name..? Thats the real question here....you continue to prove my point... !ke... the function of an insecure coward....nothing more...
Buck Harmon January 29, 2013 at 02:08 PM

Gone? But not forgotten.

Buck, keep in mind that Frank is a shut-in who is pre-diabetic if not full blown and jobless. This forum is his only outlet for his fat aggression.
1ke January 29, 2013 at 03:36 PM
BTW, Cornbread is tight.
FIFA January 29, 2013 at 03:46 PM
Applause.
CP January 29, 2013 at 04:52 PM
Frank are you 12? Insecure?
1ke January 29, 2013 at 05:19 PM
Corn pone is subsistence living. Cornbreadd is at least step or two up.

The bully crowd. More interested in smart Alec remarks than actual dialog. Brought to you by patch.

Bucky, what's wrong? Things aren't popping on Patriot Action?
