Worst family in history?

http://nypost.com/2017/08/07/woman-sentenced-to-death-for-murdering-10-year-old-cousin/

Jurors sentenced a Phoenix woman to death on Monday in the killing of a 10-year-old cousin who was locked in a small plastic storage box and left to die as punishment for stealing an ice pop.

Sammantha Allen, 29, will become the 55th woman on death row in the U.S. after the jury reached its verdict Monday. There are only two other women on death row in Arizona, which is among the states struggling to buy execution drugs after pharmaceutical companies began blocking the use of their products in lethal injections.

Jurors had been deliberating since Wednesday on whether to send Allen to death row or spare her life in the 2011 killing of Ame Deal. She was convicted of first-degree murder and four counts of child abuse on June 26.

Authorities said Allen and her husband are responsible for making Ame get into the box the night before as punishment for having stolen an ice pop. She was left in the box and found dead six or seven hours later.

The trial of her husband, John Allen, 29, is scheduled to start Oct. 9. He’s also charged with first-degree murder and child abuse and faces the death penalty. He has pleaded not guilty.

The girl’s death was the culmination of a history of abuse that a handful of relatives heaped on her, authorities say.

Ame was forced to eat dog feces, crush aluminum cans barefoot, consume hot sauce and get in the storage box on other occasions. She also was kicked in the face, beaten with a wooden paddle and forcibly dunked after being thrown in a cold swimming pool, investigators said.

Adults at the home originally claimed Ame hid during a late-night game of hide-and-seek and wasn’t found until hours later. Three other relatives are in prison serving sentences for abusing Ame.

Sammantha Allen’s mother, Cynthia Stoltzmann, who also was Ame’s legal guardian, is serving a 24-year prison sentence for a child abuse conviction.

Child welfare authorities in Arizona said they didn’t receive any reports of abuse before her death. But child welfare reports from Utah, where the family lived before moving to Phoenix, listed Ame as an abused child, police said.

The verdict comes after executions in Arizona were put on hold following the 2014 death of a prisoner who was given 15 doses of a two-drug combination before he died in what his attorney called a botched execution.

But the state is now able to resume executions after a lawsuit that challenged the way Arizona carries out the death penalty was settled earlier this summer. No executions are scheduled.

Kill em all

They killed one person?  Every US president is worse than that.

Surprisingly this case didn't get much attention here in Phoenix. Fuck that bitch, time to bring back old sparky and light the bitch up!

Struggling to get legal injection drugs? That's gotta be a joke.

"Child welfare authorities in Arizona said they didn’t receive any reports of abuse before her death. But child welfare reports from Utah, where the family lived before moving to Phoenix, listed Ame as an abused child, police said"

Not to take any responsbility off the fucked up parents but the system let this child down: Apparently, to get around child abuse allegations a parent just has to move to a new state ... Imagine, if such a technology existed that would allow officials to track abusive parents no matter where they move?

 

Sentence them to death by storage box set on fire

Pharmaceutical companies are refusing to sell states lethal injection saying its inhumane. It's time we bring back the firing squad or hanging.

There was a huge scandal a couple years ago here in AZ where there was such a backlog of cases they were not even investigating horrible child abuse cases.

that's horrible. I think Sawney Bean's family about has the title sewn up though.

Pretty sure the Kahns won this one. 

Hopefully the piece of shit husband gets the same sentence. 

I was going to say these guys, but you're probably right, OP.

What so difficult about it? Inhumane? WTF

Just look under your kitchen sink or garage. Anything liquid in a bottle, especially in glass bottles, you mix them together and inject.

This is mind bottling to me. Have these people never heard of heroin & alcohol? Worked just fine for Janice Joplin, Jimmi Hendrix, Jim Belushi, Chris Farley, the list goes on and on.

I know that for lethal injections a major issue is that the death must be both 100% effective AND utterly humane. Well, being blissed out by a MASSIVE dose of heron is about as humane a way as possible to enter an irreversible coma, and the combination of the heroin and alcohol suppresses all breathing.

It's a bunch of bullshit especially since these fucks committed horrible acts to their victims lethal injection isn't harsh enough. Unfortunately a lot of these drug companies are European so they refuse to supply the drugs. If we have to go this route put them down with the same drug we give our beloved pets.

Haven't read the article, but if memory serves it was a little more nuanced than that. In essence, I understood the argument to be more that the ingredients of the drugs used for lethal injection are very limited in supply and the pharmaceutical companies produce pharmaceuticals to help people, not execute them. So, it's not so much whether or not it's "humane" but that these drugs are limited and intended to help people live, not to execute them. 

Bad analogy, but a bit like if we executed people by stabbing them with screwdrivers, then a manufacturer may not want to sell the state screwdrivers because they're intended to be used for building houses for people. 

It is worth pointing out, however, that the pharmaceutical industry produces massive amounts of opioids that are killing way more people than capital punishment ever will...
