    what's the other side of the coin?
    rodney halbower - three homicides and some rapes

    ms wood's is a sad case
    mother had daughter institutionalized
    ms wood's was convicted TWICE (does that constitute a yell? i don't think so.)
    her life took a left-turn and was down hill
    i'm glad she wasn't executed

    i'm neither glad nor "sad" that halbower wasn't executed
    but if he hadn't been, i wouldn't be sad, and not necessarily glad

    prisons should not be rat holes and they aren't
    i don't think anyone wants that
    but reason tells me that execution for certain homicides is not unreasonable
    and should be expected

    One would hope this case will give pause to those who insist that all those convicted of murder should be executed without an extended appeals process. Similarly, advocates for harsh prison conditions and making life in prison as horrible as possible need to remember that in doing so, we would be doing the same thing to innocent people such as this woman and others.
