Accused Satanic Murderer

Spare Me From the Death Penalty

2/17/2014 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miranda Barbour -- who claims to have committed between 22 and 100 murders -- claims she should not be subject to the death penalty because it's "cruel and inhuman punishment."

In legal docs filed by her lawyer, Miranda argues it would be unfair to put her to death -- even if convicted -- because "the criminal justice system is fallible, thereby subjecting inappropriate persons to the death penalty."

As for whether Barbour is an "inappropriate person" ... hard to make the argument since she confessed to cops.  But her lawyer has an answer for that ... asking the court to throw out her confession on grounds cops violated her constitutional rights.

Barbour's lawyer says she repeatedly asked for an attorney, only to be denied.

But there's a big snag ... Barbour then confessed to knifing a man she met on Craigslist and a lot more last Thursday to a local reporter.  That confession is fair game.

And one more thing -- In her lawyer's argument against the death penalty, the attorney notes the state of Pennsylvania wants her executed because this Craigslist murder was a crime of torture -- stabbing the guy 20 times. The lawyer says there's NO evidence of torture.

She should get her nose out of the satanic books and look at the Judaeo/Christian Book that was used in founding America. Therre it states: "Whoso sheddeth man's blood by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He man" (Genesis 9:6).

She should get her nose out of the satanist book and check out the Judeo/Christian Book that America was founded on. There it early on and very clearly states: "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He man" (Genesis 9:6) .

It's time to make her pay for what she has done before her sleezy lawyer gets her off because a person failed to do their job, it doesn't release the fact that she is a cold blooded killer and deserves to die. Put a gun to her head and put a .45 caliber round though her worthless brain, did she think the people she killed was not a cruel death, just kill the BIT*H and get it over with.

She killed between 22 and 100 people but she should be spared the death penalty because it's inhumane punishment? She should die the 100 deaths she inflictedon those peple. I wouldn't give her an injection- that would be too easy. She should die the same death she did on the 100 victims. Burn her at the steak is my suggestion.

This is such BS. The little idiot committed one murder, which her husband probably put her up to, then bragged to a reporter that she was this bad a** satanist to probably get notoriety. Then, reality set in, and now she's cowering like the little piece of sh*t maggot she really is. Ugly, unloved, and a stain on society. Good riddance, honey. I hope there isn't too much voltage, so you can suffer more.

Oh the irony, this twit subjects her victims to heinous crimes, torturous death & NOW she demands leniency, for herself! LOL. I for one, would volunteer to put an end to her criminal reign, with less than a dollar's worth of lead--at the business end of a firing squad. One of the problems with our society is the tendency to glorify the killer, the criminal &/or the murderer, while negating the very existence of the victim--as if their life does not matter & they exist only as a side-note in a macabre story, devised solely for our entertainment!

Send this bitch to the bowels of hell! Sadly Pennsylvania is a touchy feely, goody goody state where they think the death penalty is "cruel." No wonder why Philthadelphia & ****tsburgh are so horrendous & overrun with crime. Please, please, please let there be proof of her evil deeds in a less "we punish taxpayers & coddle our inmates" kind of state! I can only hope her fellow inmates go ape**** on her & give her what she deserves; a shank to the carotid artery!
