    Glad to report he, Rutger's coach, has now been fired. Now the piece of shit AD needs to be fired for only letting him go after the videos were released. The AD is more of a piece of shit than the coach for thinking that anything less than firing was acceptable and not doing shit until this was made public. If there are any other administrators who also saw this and recommended anything below a firing, they should also be let go.

    There is NO room for this in sports. Coaches can be tough, but should nurture their players, particularly coaches of amateurs players. Ridiculous.

    What's bad is that the kids can't do anything. They could lose their scholarships if they fight back. Dude straight up took advantage of them.

    Yea, could you imagine being a player and having that dick as your coach and that scumbag as AD? If you complained, you'd be released from your scholie and ridiculed. He fired an assistant coach who complained, much less a player! That fuck of an AD needs to be fired immediately.

    This shit makes my blood boil.

    Man who raped a 6 month old to death, now wants mercy



    A Ohio man who raped a six month old baby, killing her in the process is now asking for mercy. Steven Smith, was sentenced to death after he admitted raping a 6 month old baby to death. The little girl, Autumn Carter died after Steven Smith, who was very intoxicated failed to realize that his sexual violation of the poor child was actually killing her. Smith Claims that he was too drunk to intend to kill her. Ohio law states that intent must be demonstrated in order to receive the death penalty. Now his lawyers are claiming that, that loophole will keep him from being executed. However even though he was never charged with rape, for some unknown reason, it was included in the initial indictment. Ohio law states clearly if a person is killed in the commission of a crime, the death penalty can be applied. It seems Mr. Smith’s lawyers, need to read up on Ohio law. That is only one of the reasons he was charged with a capital offense. The prosecutor in the case dismisses his lawyers claim that the killing was an accident saying: “The horrific attack upon Autumn Carter showed much more than Smith’s stated purpose. ” The prosecutor says that the defenseless baby had injuries that were consistent with intentional murder and claims it was a revenge killing because the little girl’s mother refused him sex the night before.
    [​IMG]
    Smith claims that his intoxication prevented him from forming intent, and he was indeed quite intoxicated. 8 hours had elapsed since the 911 call and Mr. Smith’s blood alcohol level was still, 0.123 which does indicate he was drunk. However being drunken doesn’t excuse you from murder charges. Prosecutors presented evidence at trial which indicated that Mr. Smith’s attack on the innocent child lasted up to 30 minutes during which time, he beat the baby to death while raping her. However, Mr. Smith’s “expert” witnesses say that he “MAY” have suffocated her accidentally within the first 3-5 minutes of the attack.
    I think Mr. Smith will have a very hard time getting clemency for this crime. The moral repugnancy of the crime will cause outrage and disgust. While personal feelings are not supposed to be considered in a clemency hearing the image of a 6 month old baby being literally raped to death will not be far from mind.
    For me personally this brings up a hard choice. I do not support the death penalty, as I believe all life is sacred. I am pro-life from conception to grave. However, the reprehensible nature, and brutality of this crime, makes the call for punishment run hot in my brain. It is because of specifics like this, that the death penalty is a struggle for me. I know without a doubt if I was that child’s mother, I would have killed him where he stood. Right, or wrong that is what would happen. I cannot think that person like Mr. Smith’s life has any intrinsic value. This was a hard story for me to even write. The details of the case were gruesome in the extreme. I want so much to see this scumbag die. In fact, I think the phenobarbital that they use to put people to death is far too kind for this evil creature.
    [​IMG]
    As for Mr. Smith. All I can say, is May God Have Mercy on Your Soul, because I doubt the state of Ohio will.

    You're right, it is...

    Them Hollywierd types have made it mainstream these days...

    Have you guys heard about the John Revolting denials of his public lewd gay behavior? I heard that he's denying paying anyone off to keep mum about his gay dalliances but his production company's insurance company? Well that's a cornhole of a different color... deep dark red it turns out... I guess that his companies insurance company has paid off quite a few drivers, masseurs, production aids etc. Meanwhile Travolta claims it didn't happen and if it did he didn't pay anyone off... unless you count the increase in coverage rates he's now paying... Rich Scum trying to get away with shit that others wouldn't...

    Death.

    Rather... a slow painful death.

    Slow death by stripping his skin from his person. Starting with his dick.

    Slow death by stripping his skin from his person and spraying him down with glass shards and salt water while slowly crushing his nuts in an abrasive clamp.

    Slow death from all of the above while hoisting him upon a large jagged tiki war club until it comes out his mouth. While the childs mother takes a baseball bat to his face and breaks light bulbs in his mouth.


    I could go on but I'm leaving now to kill his memory too...

    This guy is the exact reason I believe capital punishment should be much more extreme and harsh. This man should have to be executed by rape. He should be raped by a horse until he dies from it or by a bunch of gay prison inmates.

    It's pretty clear that that guy is a scumbag of the highest degree. But, from a legal perspective, that article is pretty poorly written. For example, it states that "Ohio law states clearly if a person is killed in the commission of a crime, the death penalty can be applied." This, however, is completely untrue. Ohio law states that only aggravated murder is sufficient to warrant the death penalty in Ohio. In relevant part:

    So, under (A), the government must demonstrate that his conduct was both purposeful, i.e., it was his conscious object to murder the baby, AND premeditated. Someone can still be convicted for [non-aggravated] murder when they "cause the death of another as a proximate result of the offender’s committing or attempting to commit an offense of violence that is a felony of the first or second degree." This is different. To be aggravated murder, and therefore qualify for the death penalty, under Ohio statute, the homicide must occur purposefully when in conjunction with another enumerated felony.

    The prosecution seems to be relying on the claim that it was a "revenge killing because the little girl's mother refused him sex the night before." Of course, the evidence cutting the other way is that he was very drunk. If he was sufficiently drunk, I suppose that may undercut a claim of purposeful conduct, knocking down the charge from aggravated murder to murder. That's obviously a question of fact for the jury to figure out based on the evidence.

    Assuming that they did, then the fact finder must find that one or more of the aggravating circumstances was present.

    These appear to be the relevant aggravating circumstances:

    Possible relevant mitigating circumstances include:

    i am so in agreement with bdk on this
    should be an eye for an eye
    but i'll take it a step further... let the vic's family members and friends to deliver the punishment
    those fuckers deserve to die in the most humiliating and painful ways possible
    should also televise it pay-per-view with 100% of the earnings going to said surviving family members and friends

    shaw, perhaps the legal details unfortunately need to be sorted out. but this guy is admitting he did do this. of that there is no dispute.
    no amount of narcotics or alcohol, fuck a gun to my head even could ever make me consider molesting a child. let alone taking a six month baby and raping it until it dies.
    no this guy is a mental defective and i wish the officer that arrived on seen had slit his throat and pissed on him as he bled out. there is no excuse for what he did and i will never understand the need for people to make excuses for them. defective. cull the herd.

    Don't get me wrong, this guy is an awful human being. I couldn't imagine what would compel someone to do something like this.

    But, the problem is, under the Ohio Penal Code, there's a genuine question over whether he committed aggravated murder, which is the only gradation of homicide that actually qualifies for the death penalty. Even if someone admits that they committed a homicide, that's insufficient to demonstrate that they did the act purposefully [while committing the other felony of rape].

    I'm personally opposed to the death penalty in all circumstances. But, we can abstract out and ask whether the defendant should receive the largest possible penalty in the penal system (whether that be death, life imprisonment, or whatever). However reprehensible the facts, we still have to make sure that he committed the requisite crime. I'm sure I could track down the trial court ruling and gather the facts from it, but without any further research, it seems like you could genuinely dispute that.

    The simple truth is that morality and the legal system don't line up. Take, for instance, the rule that individuals don't have an affirmative duty to help others (except for in limited circumstances). It may seem morally wrong for someone to not call the police when they see someone else being murdered or raped, but that doesn't mean there's any legal penalty for it.
