Unformatted text preview: 10.27 Irony for death penalty • How certain cj policies are paradoxical. Counterintuitive. • Ex) day of executive Robert bashim-hoards medication and takes all the medication in attempt to suicide. Then physicians pumped his stomach. When he gained consciousness and then was prepped and put to death with state approve drugs. Absurdity of the situation. • Element of taylorism- movement in industrial capitalism-workers maximize productivity. Synchronize movements. Taylorism is now an element of the death penalty-prisoner put to death at the stroke of midnight it was somber and had symbolism. NOW execution takes place 7-8 am when it fits into their schedule. Death work is mirroring the work day. Wake up (execute, go to work) routine= taylorism. • States that use execution, execute more than 1 person in a session. • Dead body-hold down the leg and flatten it out on sandbag. Sometimes 3 executions in one morning. Less than 40 executions a year. Handful of states that do execution. TX and FL. • Irony of execution-1970s invalidated death penalty including federal system.

Alex is a teenager that is convicted of killing an elderly woman. While hes in prison, hes in the library and sees that alex is reading the bible. Hes reading the crucification of Christ. Alex identified with the romans the people beating Christ. • Do people ID with executioner or the condemned? • Netwidening-expanding the roster of violations that bring teens into the net of cj. Status offeneses (drinking underage) under the age =violation. Smoking or poessesion of tobacco/curfew (juvenile has more leverage cuz get more people in one scoop) • Death penalty reserved for 2 offenses. First degree homicide and rape. Then later on said rape not a capital crime. Then changed in 1990s-congress expanded the roster of federal crimes punishable by death-a drug related...
