MACaver said:This bastard definitely deserves it if anyone else does. Article here shows that the man was unstable and violent. They let him out and he slaughtered two innocents. One was his daughter and the other her best friend. Then he tried to pretend he found them while looking for them. Worse of all, on Mother's Day.
Those who argue against the death penalty might disagree with me and at this point I don't care. We hear of horrible crimes almost daily, but this ... this horrorific loss of life by such savagery cannot and should not go unpunished without death. No matter what his motives, no matter how "temporarily insane", no matter what his freakin problem is... he deserves to die die and die again.
How can anyone think of a lesser punishment that doesn't equal the crime that he committed?
I'm sickened by this more than I can say. If he had a rage great enough to take the life of his own child that cannot be excused but to also kill her friend who's only crime was being with her when it happened. It's too bad that he can only be killed once. But if they decide he should be killed via capital punishment then he should die slowly and painfully. It's just too damn bad that we don't have a punishment designed to do that.
My heart breaks... ah my heart.
Right here on MT there was another discussion about the death penalty and it's cost. Seems that it costs more to put someone to death than to keep them alive in prison.MJS said:I wonder if a study has been done to compare the cost of keeping someone in prison for life vs. the cost of putting them to death.
Tgace said:Probably more due the endless appeals process than anything else.
MACaver said:But in my thinking is it justice that this animal should live after taking the lives of those two little girls? He was a waste to society and those girls...

Unfortunatly, that wont happen. He'll rate the footnote section of the local paper in 25 years, when we finally get around to him.

Oh, almost surely this would happen. He wouldn't last long. (I leave aside whether this is fair--I simply consider it factual.) You could make book on it.kenpotex said:Put him in general population...maybe someone will pull a Jeffrey Dahmer on him.
