I feel like pulling up this story every single time someone brings up BLM.

Just briefly skimming the information... it seems like this guy has been playing the system. Just because you feel sorry for the crime you’ve committed, doesn’t mean we should let you sit in a cell the rest of your life at the taxpayers expense.

Should have been a cattlegun to the base of the skull into an unmarked grave 30 years ago.

I have problems with the death penalty. Over all I don't agree with as a whole. Alot of cases a person does something like this when they are young and 30 years down the road they are rehabilitated and they are executed. Or the many cases of a wrong full execution of someone who was innocent. There's no way to go back and fix that. But at the same time when you have a pedophile murderer, a rapist murderer, or a serial killer. I don't find myself feeling bad about them getting the death penalty because there is no rehabilitating them. I guess if it was up to me I'd abolish the death penalty and as for the scum bags I just mentioned, their crime should be printed on their clothes and put them in general population. No protective custody or administrative segregation. Let prison justice deal with them.

It always strikes me how much these obvious killers cling to every string of life, yet had so eagerly took another person's life.
