  1. If you drive toward the back of the cemetery there is an office. I believe they have a map you can look at.
  2. That's fine, that's your choice. But you aren't a serious thru hiker on the Appalachian trail either.
  3. The problem with true appalachian trail thru hikers have is every ounce you carry counts because you carry it for over 2000 miles. This isn't a 1 hour stroll in the woods carrying a picnic lunch. Even if a thru hiker is willing to carry a 2 or 3 pound gun 2000 miles, they legally can't as they cross over many state lines. So all thru hikers are vulnerable unless they are willing to carry extra weight at the risk of getting arrested. The only effective defense against a person with a 2 foot machete is a gun. This wack job job was killing fish in a barrel , lucky more people didn't die. All the blame is on the wack job.
  4. These guys may disagree. Texas is a state that actually implements the death penalty which would seem to be more of a deterrent. Texas is far from states like penna. who has a death penalty but a prisoner on death row is more likely to die of old age. Not much of a deterrent. IMO. Study: Death penalty in Texas a homicide deterrent By ABC13 Archive HUNSTVILLE, TX A review of executions and homicides in Texas by criminologist Raymond Teske at Sam Houston in Huntsville and Duke sociologists Kenneth Land and Hui Zheng concludes a monthly decline of between 0.5 to 2.5 homicides in Texas follows each execution. "Evidence exists of modest, short-term reductions in the numbers of homicides in Texas in the month of or after executions," the study published in a recent issue of Criminology, a journal of the American Society of Criminology, said. The study adds to decades of academic dissection of the death penalty and deterrence. Results over the years vary from capital punishment saving more lives than suggested in this study to no conclusive effect. This study, however, is the first to focus on monthly data in Texas, where researchers said the number of executions -- 447 since capital punishment resumed in 1982 -- is statistically significant enough "to make possible relatively stable estimates of the homicide response to executions." A national deterrent effect can't be determined because "most states ... have not engaged in a sufficient level or frequency of executions per year," they said. Kent Scheidegger, legal director of the California-based Criminal Justice Legal Foundation, which supports capital punishment, said the study "would be sufficient by itself to justify the death penalty." But Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, a Washington, D.C.-based organization opposed to capital punishment, said while he was not a statistics expert, "the large number of variables affecting these calculations and the relative rarity of executions make final conclusions about deterrence very suspect." The study analyzed data from January 1994 through December 2005, during which 284 lethal injections were carried out in Texas -- about one-third of all death sentences carried out in the U.S. The year 1994 was selected as the starting point because state and federal legislation and court rulings beginning then led to "an orgy of executions in Texas," the researchers noted. Of the years studied, four had more than 30 executions, including a record 40 carried out in 2000. Researchers ran mathematical models that considered homicide figures from the Texas Department of Public Safety to see if month-to-month fluctuations in executions could be associated with subsequent month-to-month fluctuations in homicide counts. Teske told The Associated Press while the published study ended with results through 2005, the conclusions are valid for subsequent years. David McDowall, a professor at the State University of New York at Albany and an expert in statistical analysis of crime and violence patterns, said the study appeared solid and used standard accepted research methods. "What the study does is try to control a constant variety of factors that vary over time by chance and then try to assess whether any decreases in homicides are large enough that chance can't account for them," McDowall said. He said additional research examining homicides in nearby states where the death penalty is less active could add to the Texas study's credibility. The researchers said they did exactly that and found the frequent use of executions in Texas had a greater cumulative impact on homicides in Texas when compared to homicide numbers in Louisiana, New Mexico and Oklahoma. They didn't include those findings in the final paper because reviewers wanted them to narrow its focus. Teske acknowledged some experts disliked the results. He speculated criticism came from peer reviewers opposed to capital punishment. "I have a hard time getting people to understand that this reports a scientific analysis of an issue and is not a political statement," Teske said. Six Texas inmates are scheduled to die this year, including one Thursday and another next week. Copyright © 2019 KTRK-TV. All Rights Reserved. Follow
  5. There should be more of a deterrent for future sinners who want to take the life of others other than life in prison. That would be the death penalty. Imo
  6. Some people deserve the death penalty. This waste is one of them. Imo.
  7. Have to wait on a governer with some culliones because this one won't put anyone to death.
  8. Look into a kamado ceramic bbq grill. One of the best brands is called the big green egg. You can slow bbq like pulled pork at low 200 degrees to high temp pizza cooking at 600 to 700 degrees using a pizza stone. They use lump charcoal and are airtight to control temp using vents. There is a local dealer i recently saw on a sign route 119 and pike road. It's an Amish General store.
  9. www.Wishaw.50megs.com cool website about history there. Maybe historical society's have some info.
  10. 1918 Wishaw had metro league baseball team which led to beginning of Fed league.
  11. While Amish have some beliefs that are wholesome family values, the Amish also believe the woman is subservient to the man. They also don't believe in insurance and use the same roads i do and I have to have to purchase insurance. Can't have cell phones unless it's for profiting their business. They are also strict pacifists which means they are the biggest hypocrite. They benefit from and are free to live in a nation built from men willing to fight and give their life for all.
  12. Yeah or your notified of a flex day a week in advance.
  13. Is the former Nicole's niche open or closed while you are renovating? If closed, when will it open? Or isn't there going to be a store like Nicole's niche there anymore? Thanks
