    And this is the reason why victims and victims' families are not the ones who execute "justice" on behalf of society. You're in no position to act rationally, and no one would expect you to.

    •  Nor would I want that responsibility. I left that (0+ / 0-)

      in the hands of the jury who used present law to decide to execute him.
         Not my decision to make. Am I glad that is the one they made? Oh hell yes.
         Now I know this evil piece of shit has no chance to further his body count upon other inmates or staff within the prison system. Death row is single cell and he has no chance whatsoever of killing another person, damn right I'm cool with that.
         What I wouldn't have been cool with is life without parole,ie, a lifetime to prey upon other inmates and staff.
