A jury in Florida has today convicted John Couey in the murder of 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford.The sex offender was accused of kidnapping and raping Lunsford and burying her alive.The jury reached its verdict just a few hours after getting the case. Closing statements were delivered this morning. Coeuy was also convicted of sexual battery, kidnapping and burglary.Couey now faces a possible sentence of death by lethal injection or life in prison without parole. The jury will now decide on a sentence.The 48-year-old sex offender admitted to investigators that he committed the crime, but the confession was thrown out.Couey was arrested two years ago during the search for Jessica Lunsford, who had disappeared the previous month from her bedroom. It was about 150 yards from the trailer where Couey had been living.

My Christian faith urges me to be forgiving unto all. But how, Lord, is one to be forgiving to such an animal, like John Couey, found guilty of kidnapping, then raping, then burying alive-until her death- murder, of little Jessica Lunsford? This 9 year old girl endured more than I would even demand of her attacker! The waste of flesh, slimeball, subhuman needs a, a level of concious torment equivalent to his unspeakable crime.

But how does Florida do that, short of Sharia Law, but justifying of his abominable crimes? Every able daddy in Florida with a daughter, ought to have just 5 minutes alone with him, in a sealed room. Okie Volunteers, too.
Bastard, sicko, piece of slime, spawn of Satan, john couey... I can't think of a punishment bad enough for him, for his crimes.

What to do? Maybe create a level of fiendishness after conviction, for subhumans, like him? A level of punishment which would be outside the Constitution's "cruel and unusual punishment" clause? One which would allow for beatings to death, or worse, far worse, in cases such as this, where a child is tortured and then killed so inhumanly. Starvation, in full sight of a banquet? Posioned slowly? Having him watch his parents and all other family slaughtered in some similar way, before slowly and painfully killing him?
That's all just fine with the Localmalcontent! The ACLU, along with him!!

Fortunately or unfortunately, we are a humane society, but that does not answer the question of what does one due with the John Couey's of the world.

I don't think that Jesus was against capital punishment for the most henious killers, be they ordinary murders or terrorists.

If the bleeding heart liberals are so against the death penalty, then I say bring back the chain gangs and make these scumbags toil and labor everyday of their lives in prison.

Never mind letting them take college courses at the tax payers expense, to earn degrees they will never be able to use any way. They should be given that the very minimal in medical care and that is it. If you don't want to execute them, then at least stop coddling them.

And stop claiming that it isn't Christian to execute people like Couey. It isn't Christian to keep them around at tax payer exspense for a few years and then let them loose to kill again.

Abouna? Are you kidding? The Libs wouldn't stand for chaingangs - they would prefer perhaps a halfway house near a school.

Give him to the prison population for a short while with the guards backs turned. Don't forget to include the sign that says 'I'm a child pederast, child killing freak!'

That would suit him just fine - injection is too humane

That IS what will happen to Couey, after all; he will be put out of Our misery by some inmate in the Florida penal institution who still has a shred of concious and decency. And good for him, whoever he is!
Like Jeff Dahmer in Wisconsin, or that priest in Massachusetts, his last days are numbered in the dozens.
