If a police officer had shot and killed him during that hunt then none of this thread would be here. We would have all moved on.
But that didn't happen.
When you rip apart a young child's innocent body you lose membership in the human race. He should be put down but it isn't going to happen that quickly.
Due to the amount of money and time for the DP I would choose to have him serve life in prison but in the general population. He may have some allies in prison but there is going to be one bad ass who wants that notoriety of killing him.
The death penalty is a waste if money. Sure it can be changed but show me one presidental candidate who has came out in support of eliminating the appeals.
