Dorina Lisson, the Aussie anti-death penalty zealot, thinks correctional officers are abusive and brutal uneducated idiots and those on the execution team are ‘crazed sadists.’ And since she’s a psychologist and researcher, there can be absolutely no doubt that she is correct.

Here in her own words, Dorina strikes back at her critics:

To Centurian, Stevo, Bob

It doesn't take a genius to do the job of a correctional officer. Even an uneducated idiot can apply and get a job as a correctional officer, as some indeed are. If you don't like the job you are free to quit - try a job at McDonalds.

I suggest you do your own research on prisoner abuse by correctional officers' - you will be amazed at the abundance of factual information. You all can read, right?

I am a psychologist and researcher. I have the qualifications and experience to accurately state that the death penalty (aka state-sanctioned violence) has a brutalizing effect on society. The evidence can be found in the USA, where crime rates and incarceration rates remain the highest per capita, than any other country in the world. Wow !!! So, keep paying your taxes because legally killing people is costing American taxpayers' millions of dollars each year, millions more than life in prison without parole. Your beloved taxes are actually supporting a death penalty system riddled with legal errors. Now that's highly intelligent !!!

No decent intellectual human being can dispute that the execution-team (aka correctional officers) who claim to be 'just doing their job' are in fact abusive and brutal people. Only 'crazed sadists' are able to perform this vile act of barbarism and still sleep peacefully at night.

In the meantime, the USA is keeping close company with some unruly bed mates ...[Lisson goes on to list dozens of death penalty nations, most of them third-world countries.] The USA is right up there with the best of the best, while the civilized nations of the world are laughing at you. Who's the idiot ???

God Bless America !!!

So much anger. So much hatred and contempt for a group of people who only want to do an honest job and go home safe at night.

As for the abuse of inmates by correctional officers…yes, I am sure it occurs. But again…the abuse of inmates by other inmates is far more prevelant. It may suprise you to know that it is the correctional officers that protect inmates and staff members from the many predatory inmates.

That masters degree in psychology you claim to possess does not qualify you to pass judgement on thousands of people whom you have never met, who work in an environment that you have never experienced.

And for every pschologist who spews your brand hatred and contempt for the hard working officers working inside prisons, there are at least ten others who would disagree with you.

I have to wonder about someone who can make such judgements and determinations about others based soley on this one topic…especially when the death penalty has been consistantly upheld by our Supreme Court and is supported by the majority of the American people.

Try looking beyond your narrow preconceptions and the rhetoric of the prisoners rights groups. Do a little research on your own. Look at BOTH sides of this issue. There are reams material out there…both for and against the death penalty.

On one thing you and I agree. God Bless America!!!

Actually I am not an angry or hateful person and everyone who knows me will agree. I am just very disappointed. The USA is Australia's closest friend and ally. For this reason, I would very much like to see the USA abolish their seriously flawed death penalty system. The USA is invited to join the civilized nations of the world by abandoning this shameful ancient punishment.

The death penalty is in fact a barbaric, brutal, cruel, degrading, inhuman and uncivilized state-sanctioned act of violence. It can accurately be described as 'cruel and unusual punishment'. It is a legalized 'hate' crime. A person does not need to be a genius nor have a university degree to comprehend this factual reality. Even children understand that killing is wrong.

If you take a look at my comments I say SOME correctional officers are abusive and brutal people. Every person has a basic human right to feel safe and to be safe, including offenders. Whether you like it or not, it is true that most correctional officers never completed high school.

Who says I have never worked with offenders or inside a correctional facility? Who are you to judge me? You don't know me!

For your information, Human Rights is my business. Human Rights is Universal, it belongs to everyone. That means Human Rights is everyone's business. As members of the human race, we all have a born right to protect Universal Human Rights Laws and Standards, regardless of location on this planet.

The death penalty cannot be separated from Human Rights. The death penalty is a direct violation of The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which is part of the United States Bill of Rights which prohibits imposing 'cruel and unusual punishment'. The United States Supreme Court has ruled that this amendment's 'cruel and unusual punishment' clause applies to all states.

God Bless America when it stops blessing itself with the death penalty.

Finally, I have better things to do with my time than reply to this 'bias' of a blog site (I note it doesn't attract many viewers nor comments). In Aussie slang we call it, a dead dingo's donger !!!

The minimim educational requirement for state Correctional Officers in California is graduation from High School. 20 percent of California officers are college graduates, and many of those have advanced degrees (much like yourself, Dorina).

For someone who tells it like it is, you sure don't seem to know much about what it is you are talking about.

Which begs the question...are you simply ignorant, or are you presenting information which you know to be false?

When you present "facts" that are blatantly and easily proven to be call into question all your other assertions.

So it would appear that it is us...not you...who are wasting our time.
