  •  Two words...Ted Bundy (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Ted Bundy escaped from prison, not once, but twice.  While he was escaped the second time, he murdered two girls in the Chi Omega sorority house at FSU, he also severely wounded two other girls that night.  Then he fled to kill a young girl, Kimberly Leach in Lake City Florida.

    A family member of mine was a member of the Chi Omega sorority and was living in the house at the time of the murders.  She was asleep in her room next to one of the murder victims and across the hall from another. There but for the grace of God was she not harmed.  

    Serial murdering psychopaths like Ted Bundy are a true danger to society.  While I am generally against the death penalty and believe it should only be used in the most extreme cases, such as those like Ted Bundy, I can state that I was truly relieved the day he was put to death.  It was not revenge, but relief that this monster would never have the chance to kill again.

    The United States is not just losing its capacity to do great things. It's losing its soul.--Bob Herbert
