A SCREWED UP CRIMINAL SYSTEM IN CALIFORNIA

Things like this drive me stark raving bonkers. Granted that my home state is known (embarrassingly) as the land of fruits and nuts, and they’ve elected Jerry Brown again as gov. So what the hell. I am not surprised.  Just plain disgusted and feel bad for the dad who passed away, and the victim’s mom.

Here ... you can read it for yourself. I’ll also post below, one stupid and infuriating comment from a Brit with no brains.
You’ll see what I mean.

The killer wins: Death Row murderer outlives victim’s father who campaigned for decades to see him executed

He spent 27 years criticising a justice system that allowed his daughter’s killer to remain on death row with no fixed execution date.

Now Marine veteran George Cullins, 88, has fulfilled his prediction that he would die before seeing California serial killer Dean Carter, 55, executed.

Carter was sentenced to death in 1991 after Mr Cullins’s daughter Janette, 24, was raped and strangled in her San Diego flat in 1984 before being stuffed into a closet.

Retired Marine Corps pilot Mr Cullins died in hospital last Tuesday from complications after a car accident in October that left his wife, Helen, with a broken neck.

California is known for a slow execution process, with 712 inmates on death row and only a handful of executions since capital punishment was reinstated in 1977.

But victims’ rights advocate Mr Cullins was responsible for changes in two California laws benefiting the families of murder victims.

‘He was a fine gentleman,’ Jeffrey Koch, California Deputy Attorney General, told AOL News. ‘I’m sorry that he did not see this case completed.’

Carter, who is on death row at San Quentin State Prison, has made many appeals in the last 20 years and his case is now in the federal appeals process.

He killed three women in Los Angeles the day before Janette’s murder and raped two others in a three-week spree after his sexual advances were rejected, a court heard.

The serial killer was also charged with a fifth murder in Northern California, but the case was dropped after his death sentence, reported AOL News.

Cullins was charged $65 by San Diego County for transporting Janette’s body to the morgue after her death, but the state passed a law one year later to drop such fees.

He was responsible in the 1990s for enacting a law to speed up the first step in an appeal process of court record certification in death penalty cases.

‘When the punishment of execution was actually carried out, the murder rate had decreased, but now we are just warehousing killers,’ Cullins said in 2007.

‘By drawing out the appeals process, the murder rate has been constantly on the increase,’ he told the North County Times.

But Carter has himself complained about the slow postal service, cramped conditions and visitor policies - while also commenting on social issues and O.J. Simpson.

He has written a blog since 1995 called ‘Deadman Talking’ to give an inside view about life on death row, which Mr Koch described as ‘extremely disturbing’.

Carter’s lawyers have unsuccessfully argued for his case to be overturned on alleged issues such as double jeopardy, prosecutor misconduct and judicial bias.

Why oh why don’t any of the lawyers who help to keep scum like this alive for so long, themselves become victims of serious and violent crimes?
If any do, I’ve never heard of it. Have you?  But I sincerely wish it would happen. Like maybe someone would wipe out a civil rights lawyers family, then ask to be defended by that piss ant lawyer. Yeah,yeah. Couldn’t happen.  Just my frustration with a shitty system mouthing off.
Then too, ppl who think like this idiot who commented on this case also contribute to keeping scum afloat. We have the American version of this fool.
See what you make of this jerk.

26 years in jail, he’s served his time so let him out now. How cruel to keep someone on death row for 26 years. Sounds like a third-world country.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
