Gilmore is really not a good case study. Due to his being the first to face execution under the new standards following the Furman / Gregg rulings the State of Utah as well as the Federal Courts really had no clue what they were doing. Gilmore basically did as he wished and the entire process became very circuslike. He not only had his team designing tee shirts but also negotiating the rights to his letters to Nicole and his own personal account of the crime. A good portion of the months he spent awaiting execution were filled with negotiations with Playboy for an interview.
Practice safe sex.....Marry a death inmate...You'll never get none
>>Mr. Dio...ty for that, very true....many ppl profit from murder, usually in the form of books.<<
Fair play to ya, I say. No-one would be forced to purchase whatever you chose to sell - if it's an item of interest, why shouldn't you be allowed to do whatever you want with it? He's paying the price for what he did - why should you have to pay too? I agree that murderer's shouldn't profit from their crimes, but you're not the murderer. love Sinead
Well, I do believe that we are missing the point here why memorability should not be sold. Now I can not really relate to serial killers, but to me it is sick if there are people collection those things in order to idolize. And that is the main Problem I see here. I see this from a German point of view and to me there is nothing more sickening than people collection Nazi memorability because they idolize and wish back for those times. I don´t know if any one of you has ever been to the site of a concentration camp. I can hardly explain what that is like. I have seen the sick evidence of those more than horrible crimes and I have cried like I have never cried before in my life because being in a gas Chamber where you know thousands have died, will tear you to pieces if you have a heart. And I just know that there are people out there that believe in the things that the Nazis stood for and I know they buy this stuff and show it off, proud of their gain. And I know what it is like to be treated like a Nazi, just because I am German. When I lived in the States I had people call me a Nazi sl** or say Hail to me when they found out. I had some of the Aryan Brotherhood being all so favorable to me. So sick really. And I can just not believe that there are people making money of of crimes. I don´t think that we should give people the chance to idolize killers. Do you know what happens when a shahid or shahida dies??( Those are those people who blow themselves up in Israel, hoping to kill as many people as possible). They are idolized. Their poster are being sold and they become real heroes like pop stars. Their family gets 25.000$ and a monthly payment to secure their life after the death of a son or daughter. To me selling art or poetry from inmates and T-shirts and all that is nothing less of that. And that is sick if you ask me. I know that I have a very emotional way of feeling here. But try to see it from my point of view. Of course no one is forced to buy that crap. But still I just don´t think we should encourage anybody to worship murderers and the like.
Why in the world would a woman want to marry someone on death row? Wouldn't you think they would want a "honey I'm home" instead of one that is going to be executed? I think these women are afraid to try and get a man in the real world, I pity them.
Depends on what his life insurance portfolio looks like.
People on the row do not qualify for life insurance, I don't think.
Euro-weenie (taken from the urban dictionary) - A European, or American who wishes he/she were European, with an ultra-liberal view of the world, who believes that the United States should roll over like a bunch of pussies and become testicle-less Socialist wimps like they are.
seriously: I think Obama should have made them liquidate all their assets both business AND PERSONAL so they could climb over their own pile of s***; instead of expecting the American tax payers to do it.

seriously: Wake up people! Don't you realize that WE THE PEOPLE don't need the rich, THEY NEED US...to do the work that makes them richer so they don't have to clean their own toilets; and all we get is industrialized meats and crops, GMO's, antibiotic resistance.

seriously: Patented seed crops, running small farmer's out of business, toxic waste, poisoned water, dirty air, deforestation, global warming. By the way, who even wants to live in a GLOBAL GOVERNMENT world with a GLOBAL ECONOMY?

seriously: America should be more like Switzerland, fix our own 'broken wagon' and let the rest of the world fix theirs...it's not an U.S.A. problem. Screw oil, it pollutes the earth...GO SOLAR, WIND, WATER POWER! Screw the utility companies!

seriously: That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it. Best way to topple the rich...eliminate money and go back to the barter system; let the rich wipe their own bums and clean their own toilets...for a change! No more "Groom of the stool" for them.
