Scott signs expedited death penalty, 58 other bills into law

by Dara Kam | June 14th, 2013

Rejecting nearly 15,000 pleas for a veto, Gov. Rick Scott signed into law a measure speeding up executions, saying it includes protections for Death Row convicts and “does not increase the risk of execution of persons who did not commit murder.”

Scott signed the “Timely Justice Act” along with 58 other bills and vetoed two others, including a measure that would have made voters’ e-mail addresses secret, before heading to a trade mission to France on Friday.

Scott also signed into law a business-backed bill that would block local governments from enacting mandatory sick time measures.

    Over 30 thousand views on this U-tube story. Maybe gov Scott needs a little scruitny for his actions. Maybe we need to do a public records request on all his phones cells and all and see who’s pulling his strings. there are a lot of corrupt sherifs in this state but this new Liberty Co sheriff is not one of them!

    I wonder if this “Christian” would have expedited the execution of Jesus Christ?
    1 of 4 death row prisoners has been exonerated or acquitted since the 70′s. Hardly a great record.

  5. sure he would have Says:

    They like to expedite the deaths of anyone who can give testimony against them. One favorite is the case of John Couey the murderer of Jessica Lunsford, He was documented to be involved with the Bush Valsosta, Ga. Coggings Farms pedophile goings on. Site of suspicious deathof FDOT IG Investigator Ray lemme. And instead of being on death row forever he died fast of anal cancer. Even his fellow death row inmates could smell a rat on this one. Also ask yourself why his prosecutor Brad King protected Couey’s sister and brother in law. Does the name Secord ring a bell?

  6. just a little history lesson Says:

    If the name Secord (Richard) does not ring a bell perhaps this little lesson will bring you up to speed on all the connections of this organized criminal empire.

    Also some inportant names to remember are BARRY SEAL; GEORGE MORALES; JOHNNY MOLINDA (PENSACOLA); MANNY PEREZ (WEST HIALEAH) MICHAEL E. RUNYON (TAMPA); ROY ATCHISON (PENSACOLA);HARRY LEE COE (TAMPA). What do they all have in common? They are dead!

  7. we have been dupped Says:

    so what I read in all this old CIA GHWB has been running things at the white house at least probably since Reeagan was shot (not to mention by the son of a friend of the Bush family) and he and his new world order gang are still running obama and everything in between. am I right?

  8. we have been dupped Says:

    there must be something to all this because its easy to see someone bolws a lot of this stuff off the internet, to me that means it is true!
