    Because you clearly feel that that's how he should be punished, but you aren't willing to sound like a wackjob by coming out and advocating for the punishment to be changed. If you really feel that that's how criminals should be punished (which is pretty clear to me based on your posts in this thread), then it should be done legitimately. Letting other prisoners carry out justice rather than the government doing it is wrong.
    actually, if the govt would let me. I'd be more than happy to take care of scum like this personally. with my own two hands. how's that for "cowardly"

    Believe me, if the death penalty were foolproof, I would not only support execution, but would support death by slow torture for scumbags like this. But there is a problem. The death penalty is NOT foolproof. Innocent people are occasionally put to death. I would rather see scumbags spend the rest of their lives in prison than allowing even one innocent person to be murdered by the state. And murder is exactly what it is, when it applies to someone who is innocent.
    Dan that is not true. They never proved he was innocent of the crime.

    true, proof that the DNA evidence did not come from him is not, in and of itself, proof that he was innocent. it does put his guilt in question, but it doesn't prove he was innocent.

    I agree with the second part but not the first. I don't see how this puts his guilt in question. He was a carrear criminal. One piece of evidence not applied to him to me doesn't make him any less guilty imo.

    Every day, I lose more and more faith in humanity.

    THAT'S what I'm angry about.
    I absolutely agree that it we are seeing parts of society devolve...getting a little more ugly every day. But I think that also serves to make certain others shine just a little more. And when you see people who go through incredible **** and survive, and even grow and thrive...there is inspiration in that as well.

    Ive worked with 'scum like this' one on one. The crimes committed turn the stomach. But some of the **** some of them grew up in...well...

    Not excusing or justifying him in any way shape or form and certainly agree that if found guilty, life in prison is a more than fitting penalty. Im just saying...I suppose there are people that are 'born bad', but most people are products of their environment. Good...and bad. Some overcome their environment...and some become it. I'm actually very curious to know more about the individual. My guess is it wouldnt take too long a trip down the rabbit hole to understand why he is the way he is. Again...not excuse it...but understand it...maybe learn from it.
