@FLGovScott commits the ultimate unreasonable act in #CriminalizingMentalIllness

“Im very sorry for the hurt and pain I have caused you all of these years,” Banks said. “Year after year I have tried to come up with a reasonable answer for my actions. But how could such acts be reasonable?”

—————————————-

That Chadwick Banks had no reasonable explanation for committing homicide is consistent with his history of mental illness prior to the crime.

The mainstream media gave Rick Scott what he oh-so-unreasonably wanted for executing Banks … national media attention for being tough on crime, when he’d actually only committed the ultimate act of criminalizing mental illness.

In executing banks, Scott demonstrated depravity, not bravery, and the Leader Herald was under no obligation to publish an AP story that made it seem otherwise.

The Leader Herald wasn’t obliged to furnish the AP‘s ghoulish last meal details, either.

The mainstream media is apparently convinced that sensationalizing murder-by-state will keep the rabble roused, and normalize the abnormal.

It won’t.

And nothing will take the stink off Rick Scott: he could have honorably made headlines nationwide for addressing Florida’s conviction corruption … but that would involve actual work, genuine toughness on crime, and an appropriate concern for public safety, which we can’t possibly have while innocents continue to serve killers, robbers and rapists’ time.

    A second term politician is often a dangerous thing. Nothing to lose and everything to gain from the private sectors.

  2. Dunno, Jeff. It seems to me that how many terms are lawful for any elected office is beside the point, that it all comes down to content of character.
