I certainly agree with the article "Police group wants violent offenders locked up longer" (Feb. 12). I would go one step further and ask the judges who put aggravated murderers in prison without the death penalty: What has happened in Utah regarding the death penalty for aggravated first-degree murders?
It seems as if every week we read about serious violent offenders who have been released by the Board of Pardons and Parole, committing other serious offenses on innocent victims. I hope the governor gets rightfully involved in this investigation. One has to ask where some of the blood of these innocent victims rests when a violent aggravated murderer is released (by the Board of Pardons and Parole) and repeats another violent aggravated murder.
