Ladies and gentleman, this is a chowderhead. He lives on the planet Endor.
A stone cold killer was executed in Georgia and a small group of Moral Majority protestors are upset because the killer had an IQ of 69.
Hill was condemned for beating fellow inmate Joseph Handspike [ed: what a surname!] to death in August 1990. At the time, Hill was serving a life sentence for the 1985 shooting death of his 18-year-old girlfriend, Myra Wright.
Five thousand people signed a petition seeking to spare his life and it was presented to the state parole board, his lawyers said.
Hill’s supporters included former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, the American Bar Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, the European Union and the Georgia chapter of the NAACP, according to his attorneys.
Experts generally define mental disability as having a score of 70 or below on intelligence tests. Hill scored 69 on one intelligence test and in the 70s on others, according to court records.
He had the mental capacity of an 11-year-old, his attorney said.
In 1973, after the civil rights movement permanently clouded the minds of millions, the American Association on Mental Deficiency lowered the threshold for retardation from IQ < 85 to IQ < 70. The reason this was done was feels.
“This execution is an abomination,” Hill’s attorney, Brian Kammer, said in a statement. “The memory of Mr. Hill’s illegal execution will live on as a moral stain on the people of this State and on the courts that allowed this to happen.”
As a moral principle, executing ultraviolent imbeciles is no more questionable than putting down a rabid animal. But if IQ is going to be a moral litmus test for liberals — and why wouldn’t it be, given the eagerness with which liberals embrace the concept of IQ — then anti-white knights for moronsters like Hill should acquaint themselves with the research (see above link) which shows race differences in the ability of the cognitively deficient to socially integrate with peers and adapt to everyday life.
To put it bluntly, a Warren Lee Hill with a 69 IQ will be more competent to stand trial and better able to understand the nature of his vile crimes than will a similarly mentally challenged killer with a privileged racial background.
