Good Change – Bad Change

Oregroanian May 11, 2007 page A15: An article titled –Creator of lethal injection rejects ‘political correctness.’ – Could the Oregroaning be changing its policy, or did this one just slip through the sieve? This article supplied by the associated press reports, Dr. Ray Chapman as saying, “Everything is political correctness and everyone wants to be a victim today. All of a sudden, the person on death row is a victim. I reject that thinking, by and large, because these people made choices to do what they did.”

I hardily agree with that statement except for the all of a sudden phrase. Dr Chapman is 68 years old. It is interesting that anybody who is around 70 years old remembers, when Criminals were not treated as victims. They also remember, that there was less crime, violence, and nobody shooting 30 students, postal workers, people in malls because they felt like it.

Times change, but it has taken 70 years to put us in the ridiculous position that we have advocates arguing in court that, “the criminals are suffering excruciating pain without being able to cry out.” What about the victim of the crime? Didn’t they feel excruciating pain without being able to cry out?

I agree with Dr Chapman, all free people make choices, in their life. Those choices are what direct the course of their lives. Certainly, the people standing by freeway ramps begging look pitiful, but CONSIDER HOW MANY HUNDREDS OF WRONG CHOICES PUT THEM WHERE THEY ARE.

It is easier to hang out or shoot hoops with the gang than study or work. Why should we be concern if they are leading the life they chose? Maybe if the consequences of their early choices were not over looked they may have changed their course. I don’t know. But I do know we have being doing something wrong, terribly wrong and we must stop. I also know being a victim can be a way of life. It is an easy life, but one that is not very satisfying. Why encourage it?

The world of the 40’s was a much nicer place. Adults, teachers and the police were respected. Children could walk the streets without fear of being kidnapped and abused and go to school without fear of being shot or sold drugs. Is there anyone who doesn’t believe we live today in a chaotic world? How did we get here? Step by small step. Hundreds of small mistakes like parents and teachers who wanted to be ‘buddies’ to their children instead of parents and teachers. Doesn’t sound like a bad idea but many small changes add up to drastic change. Somehow, we have to turn around and restore order in the world again.

A good place to start may be to stop supporting victims. The earlier bad behavior is corrected less extreme the punishment needs to be.
