They say he’s too dumb to die for his heinous crimes.

A federal judge has scheduled a series of hearings later this month for testimony about whether a man convicted of the execution-style murder of two undercover NYPD officers is mentally competent to face the death penalty — again.

He was smart enough to be buying guns.

The prosecutors should ask him what is the name of his favorite Basketball star and what are his stats.

Too dumb to die, he wasn’t too dumb to kill.

They should execute his attorney’s as well.

“Landmark” decisions are those that were decided in the way liberals prefer. Equally far-reaching decisions but that went the wrong way are “divisive” or “controversial”. Just another case of subtle media bias (in case anyone here didn’t already know).

If he is as dumb as they say he is, he would have been hit by a bus, train or accidentally shot himself. He probably wouldn’t be alive at all if he did not live in this point of time in history where the rest of us do all the work so trash like him can eat.

When conservatives are the chairmen of the Senate and House judiciary committees, there are a series of reforms they can take that will effectively restore the death penalty to what it should be.

This will be done by limiting the circumstances under which federal judges may involve themselves in the process, and how they will proceed with appeals.

To start with, states will be declared as “competent” to perform the death penalty, removing the process itself from the scrutiny of the federal bench. This means no more niggling over how the state carries out its sentences.

Next, appeals will be consolidated, and time limits set for appeals to be heard. All appeals will move to the head of the federal docket, to be heard without delay.

Federal judges may not direct acquittals, unless there has been an egregious constitutional violation. Otherwise they must return the case to the trial court for reconsideration.

Federal judges may not hear evidence outside of a particular case, that is, no introduction of “statistical unfairness”, or other unrelated evidence not introduced at the trial level.

Ideally, all appeals will be exhausted and pending commutation or pardon by the state, by its rules, the sentence should be carried out within five years.

Maybe he’s also not too dumb to be a President, or a rep from Chicago.

I was once on a jury that ruled (in only 30 minutes of deliberation) that a proven murderer (about a dozen eyewitnesses as well as a confession) was competent to stand trial. The judge overturned that ruling. Gee, I feel so corrected.

Me too, The defense said the perp. (Black guy who killed two kids of his GF, and stabbed her), was too dumb (IQ 70) to be found guilty. Amything under 75 and your not accountable - sure explains Congress. We the Jury found him guilty, got life.

What does intelligence or lack thereof have to do with guilt or innocence? Our legal system is so screwed up it’s pathetic.

Too dumb to be punished?

I wish we had that rule for voting. Another Democrat would never get elected.
