    The 'most prolific' serial killer in U.S. history is sentenced to death as police fea

    I have to ask if there is anyone who would say that in this kind of case the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment?

    My personal opinion is that the systems of Lethal Injection are way to good for people like this freak.

    If you are one of those bleeding hearts that feel like we should some how be compassionate to serial killers you're a damn fool.

    These people should be make examples of by use of some sort of medieval torture devices that prolong pain and agony as long as possible until after hours they finally succumb to the pain or loss of blood.

    There should be a one week time frame in which to appeal then torture should begin on the 8th day, no exception.

    This might act as a real deterrent to crime.

    I also thing the remains of suicide bombs should be wrapped in pig skin and interred in unmarked graves on hog farms,and thus take the promise of reward away from Islamic Cultists.

    If you find this to be over the top tough, ask yourself how you would feel if one of these freaks were responsible for the death of one of you loved ones.


    Rodney Alcala sentenced to death for murders of four women and girl, 12 | Mail Online
    Police have released more than 100 photographs of unidentified women and girls amid fears they could be the victims of America's worst ever serial killer.

    The pictures were taken by Rodney Alcala, who was sentenced to death by lethal injection for the savage murders of a 12-year-old girl and four women.

    However, the 66-year-old has admitted killing another 30 women in the 1970s and police believe there could be many more victims.

    They have already linked him to the deaths of two Seattle teenagers aged 13 and 17, and a 19-year-old who vanished from the same area, as well as two women in New York and several more in Los Angeles.

    The photos were discovered hidden in a storage locker in Seattle, Washington, where Alcala, an amateur photographer, kept his possessions before his arrest.

    Although many of the 1,000 pictures were innocent poses in a park or on the beach, some women had stripped off for the camera.

    Police believe that Alcala - who is known in the U.S. as the Dating Game Killer because he once appeared on America's version of Blind Date - kept the photographs as sick souvenirs of his victims.

    Lethal injection is generally considered the most humane form of death by the penal system. Personally, I don't care a whit about his rights because, in my mind, his own rights are forfeit when he stole the right of life to those women. The only objection I have to the death penalty is a financial one, not a moral one.

    Not quite. The killer's torture is derived from a sadistic pleasure. The torture mentioned by the poster is meant as a deterrent, not because (and I'm assuming here) that they get some sort of demented thrill from the abuse of another human being. If there was a psychological and evidence-backed argument that pulling a Rumsfeld on guys like this created a measurable deterrent from future crime, I'd support it.

    Not precisely. Arcala tormented and murdered women for his own sick satisfaction, not because they'd actually done him any wrong.

    Torturing Arcala as a punishment for his crimes would be a thing done for a purpose, one directly stemming from Arcala's horrific misdeeds. I don't think the two can be directly equated.

    Having said that, I have come to agree with Korimyr that however much our emotional desire to inflict suffering on the perp that is comparable to his deeds, to actually do so is to debase ourselves in a profound way.

    Better to just execute him expediently and be done with it. Let him justify himself to God, if he can.

    At least we will know for absolute certain he will never harm another woman.

    So, tell us, Councilman; do you think Rodney Alcala was deterrable? More important, is the next Rodney Alcala deterrable?

    If not, then all this torture must be serving some other purpose than deterrence. Maybe it's just liking to see other people suffering. Is that's what this is all about? It should be looked into.

    i think having him locked in solitary confinement for the rest of his life would be suficient punishment, the death penalty is empty revenge, having the rest of their lives in prison means that they will live and die knowing no freedom again.

    So....killing this guy is wrong, but killing a baby is up to mommy?

    A LOT of people feel that way, and I'll just never get it.

    No it wouldn't; that's just patently dumb. He didn't kill killers.
