Maine should bring back the guillotine for serious offenders
1/26/16 -CNN – Maine Gov. Paul LePage says his state is too easy on drug crimes, suggesting it should bring back the guillotine for serious offenders.
The Republican governor, known for his controversial statements, was speaking on local radio Tuesday about combating the drug epidemic in his state.
“What I think we ought to do is bring the guillotine back,” he told WMOV. “We could have public executions and have, you know, we could even have (guessing) which hole it falls in.”
He said that he was “all in” on fighting drug criminals and said a recent proposal to establish a minimum sentence of four years for drug traffickers was too lenient.
“I think the death penalty should be appropriate for people that kill Mainers,” LePage said.
Do I need to say that these statements are disturbing?
Doesn’t the timing of this announcement, that was public by the way, make the hair on the back of your neck stand up?
Especially since the U.S. government has purchased and paid contractors to assemble thousands of guillotines. For those of you who don’t know, that is not a rumor it is a fact. I wrote about that after Chief Joseph Riverwind talked about it during a recent interview when he expressed he wanted to make the public aware.
Coincidence? Sorry to tell you that it is statistically improbable.
All these dots connect over and over again. The timing is troubling as well since we are seeing all of these things happening all at the same time.
We are truly in the last days.
