    You are welcome to your opinion but in my opinion, for the protection of society, of course there should be prison sentences that are 'for the remainder' of someone's life.
    Perhaps, but if its impossible to create a system where they can be implemented fairly, reasonably, and efficiently, I would rather just release the dangerous people back into the herd. Life imprisonment should be reluctantly employed for the sake of public safety. It isn't a tool of justice in and of itself. In general, you do a bad crime, you die or get the 20.

    The entire idea behind lengthening prison sentences in the United States was the government could be trusted to release rehabilitated people through the parole system when the time was right, but the process has been hyper politicized and bureaucratized so that this 'justice' happens in fits and starts.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Well, I would not want that. Public safety comes first and if one has transgressed (the convicted) and one has not (members of society), then IMO certainly society shouldnt be the one penalized and put at risk.

    What utter rubbish, I am opposed to the death penalty due to the risks of executing someone later to be found innocent by exculpatory evidence, and in states without the death penalty the assertion that serial killers should be released after 20 years is almost as insane as they are.

    Not sure if they were "liberal" but I remember that he had protesters and twitter users calling for exactly that, I believe it is because they thought he was cute.

    Those saying that they should have skipped the trial because the guy confesed should remember these cases

    Guildford Four and Maguire Seven - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In the case of the Guildford four , (in which a confession was beaten out of the defendants) the judge expressed dissapointment with the prosecution that the defendants had not been charged with 'high treason against the crown' which at that point still carried the death penalty. So we got very close to executing 4 innocent people.

    Forget the death penalty as it will take years of appeals and money and march his ass straight to general population.

    I would only be for the death penalty if after the guilty verdict was announced of the 30 charges in the courtroom the judge would have said " Bailiff shoot him".
