    Right, it's not like he gave the two bank tellers a choice in how (or when) they would die so he was already getting more than he gave when he was given the choice of how he would die.

    I don't get people's outrage and hand-wringing over a few minutes of suffering during an execution. You're killing him. It will be over soon enough.

    Man Who Threw Child Off Mall Balcony Was Upset Women Rejected Him

    Emmanuel Aranda, 24, reportedly told police he was looking for someone to kill at Minnesota’s Mall of America.





    A man accused of throwing a 5-year-old boy off the third-floor balcony of Minnesota’s iconic Mall of America last week told police he was furious that women repeatedly rejected him, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday.

    Emmanuel Aranda, a 24-year-old man from Minneapolis, has been charged with attempted first-degree murder after confessing to tossing the child, whom he didn’t know, off the nearly 40-foot-high platform, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office announced Monday.

    The victim, named Landen, was critically hurt in the fall at the Bloomington mall ― the largest retail shopping mall in the U.S and a major tourist attraction. He suffered multiple fractured bones in his arms and legs, as well as massive head trauma, medical personnel told police, according to the complaint.

    Landen’s mother told police that they had been standing outside the mall’s Rainforest Cafe on April 12 when Aranda approached them. She said Aranda came very close to them so she asked if he wanted them to move out of his way.

    That’s when Aranda grabbed Landen, without warning, and threw him off the balcony before running away, the boy’s mother and several other witnesses told police. Officers subsequently located Aranda on a light rail train in the mall and placed him under arrest.

    Aranda quickly confessed to throwing the boy off the balcony and fleeing the scene, police said, according to the complaint. He allegedly said he planned to kill someone at the mall a day earlier but that it didn’t “work out.”

    Aranda told police that he planned to kill an adult because they usually stand near the balcony but chose to attack the boy instead, according to the complaint. He repeatedly acknowledged that he planned to kill someone at the mall and knew what he was doing was wrong, police said.

    Surveillance video from the mall shows Aranda looking over the balcony on the mall’s third floor several times before approaching Landen, the complaint stated.

    Aranda told police he had been coming to the mall for several years, where he attempted to talk to women but was frequently rejected, according to the complaint. The rejection caused him to lash out and be aggressive, Aranda allegedly told police.

    Aranda has been charged previously with throwing water in a woman’s face at the mall and destroying property, according to the complaint. He has a warrant out for his arrest from Illinois for assault.

    He faces life in prison if convicted of attempted first-degree murder.

    A GoFundMe page has raised over $670,000 toward Landen’s medical expenses and rehabilitation costs as of Tuesday morning.

    Landen’s “soul is soft and gentle and instantly brings a smile to everybody he meets,” according to the crowdfunding page, created by a friend of the victim’s family. “The family doesn’t know [the suspect] and are completely clueless as to why this monster would target their family with this heinous act of violence.”

    Almost certainly. Public executions were stopped because they were overly popular: https://www.dancarlin.com/product/ha...ainfotainment/

    The number of people exonerated from death row since 1973 is up to 165 (https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/innocen...reed-death-row). That is why capital punishment should be abolished.

    The last execution in Washington state was 2010. In W2 where the state penitentiary is news of the execution was in the paper everyday for a good 2 weeks prior to the event.

    I can see the glow of the penitentiary lights from my house and I can tell you there was something extremely creepy seeing those lights that night and knowing they were killing someone under their glow. I remember having to pull the blinds to block it out of my mind.

    Can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

    And I would be OK with not having Capital Punishment.

    I made a sous vide omelette. Submerged at 75 degrees for 9 days, then up to 85 degrees for 4 days. Finished it off with a sear on a medium high grill.

    Sure, some fell through the BBQ grate, but what I could scrape off the bottom of the BBQ was DELICIOUS!

    I'm thinking 11 days at 76.2 degrees, then 3 days at 84 degrees is the sweet spot.

    Hard to argue with that point of view.
    OTOH morbid humor is how people cope with the fear of injury and death, especially people who are exposed to injury and death on a regular basis--like doctors and cops. That's been going on long before the Darwin Awards, or Darwin. The victim obviously has to be a stranger, preferably in a far away place. Joking about it at the victim's funeral, for example, is certainly poor form.

    It is sometimes hard to balance my staunch opposition to the death penalty with the emotions of anger and hatred that i feel when I read about the shit some of these people have done.

    There was this one time, when I lived in Georgia, my brother's wife was cheating on him. Well I killed the wife and her lover, but when they found the wife's lover, they blamed my brother and they hung him before I could fess up. They never found his wife, they thought she left town, but she hadn't. Whole deal was a bummer, really. For anybody who followed that case, I wear a size 6 shoe.

    LOL! first version I heard was ReebuH.

    Back in the day Reba had a video for 'Fancy' where she's a college student with a family and her kid spills coffee on her paper. She's like "Wuuuut haaaave uuuuu done?!?!?"

    around the week when the video came out on CMT, a Kid on the football team spends the entire day of practice saying that in this super exaggerated way (this is in TX, mind you). Very end of practice my coach looks over at him and says "Martin! You better stop makin fun of my girlfriend!"

    Actually saw her play at the Houston rodeo. Saw a lot of good acts there. /drift.

    BTW, don't as why or how, but I saw her playing her new song at teh CMA Awards and it sounded like a mashup between "Freedom isn't Free' from Team America World Police and 'We like to Party' by the Vengaboys. Skip to about 0:49 on the vengaboys vid. maybe a







    ok /random reebuh drift.

    Always liked Fancy, not sure why 'cuz it's a weird song. I'm sure Reba's delivery had a lot to do with it. She seems like a decent person. I remember when her band was killed in that plane crash - just about killed her too.

    It is kind of a weird song but yeah it went huge; she does it well. These days a lady sending her daughter off to become a prostitute might land one in the POS Humans thread but she did get a Georgia Mansion and a NY City townhouse. And yeah, oh crap, I forgot about that crash. Taht was terrible.

    Oh, check that, its teh video for "Is there life out there" rather than Fancy where she's in college and the kids spill coffee on the paper. 2:34. Its awesome!
