Boston mayor suggests ‘torture’ for slay suspects

Published: Thu, September 23, 2010 @ 10:57 a.m.

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has made an emotional response to how the suspects accused of robbing and killing a pizza delivery driver should be treated, telling a group of college students he would “slowly torture” the three.

The Boston Globe reports that Menino was talking to Emerson College students last week when he was asked about the death penalty for the suspects in the Sept. 2 stabbing death of 58-year-old Richel Nova.

According to a student recording, the Democratic mayor first explained why he thought the death penalty was unfair, before saying he would like to fight the suspects in a dark alley. He then said he would give them something “worse than the death penalty,” and torture them.

Nova’s two daughters once worked in the mayor’s office.

Menino tells WBZ-AM that he regrets his comments and let his emotions get the best of him.

No can do Mayor ! The subculture is protected . These wolves of society have their rights and their supporters . You evidently are not one of their supporters . In the past they were swiftly hung from the gallows . Today they have an elevated status . We argue their plight with attorneys and give them the best of medical care, housing and three meals a day . Their victims don't even get an honorable mention as the trial goes on . Their attorneys will try to villify their victims and portray their clients as candidates for sainthood . Yep, we've come a long ways since those days of swift justice .

All of the ones that we have on death row now will tell you that they are wrongfully accused and should be set free . In they past they would not have had the time to object to their execution .

You people are pathetic, I don't care if the offenders are white, black, yellow, pink or indifferent! They committed a heinous act that should be punished with no respect for their liberties and civility that they gave up when they decided to murder an innocent person! If this Mayor had any nuts at all he wouldn't have apologized for anything! Kill them and let the devil sort them out!! American citizens my a$$, American trash is more like it, time to fill up the landfill six feet under!!

Now he advocates torture against American citizens?!?!?!?

No hes not advocating torture on "American citizens", he's saying exactly what I would say about the cold, heartless, pieces of useless scum that murder INNOCENT people. The mayor shouldn't have to regret his words, because everyone else thinks the same thing but just don't say it to be PC. And that's a shame.

If you are found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt then see ya bye. Color doesn't play into it. The Blacks need to stop with the pity party and stand up as individuals. You always talk about respect but don't practice it yourselves. You want respect then show respect.
