If this man is still alive 20+ years after having been sentenced to be executed,
there is something wrong with our criminal justice system. "Constitutionally
flawed" death penalty law and "deficient council" seem to be the
excuses provided by those who have no excuse.
This man's tragic past life is irrelevant. He knowingly committed these
horrific crimes and the evidence points to him as the major perp. Let justice
take its course. The counter arguments are based on opposition to the death
penalty, not substantive evidence. His defense lawyers are insulting the public.
If they oppose capital punishment, let them take it up with the legislature and
stop wasting our money.
He needs to meet his maker and be judged now.
Oh, no. I've been following this case closely. I can't believe that
they're now going to have another round of appeals. They just stopped his
execution that was scheduled for April of 2012, and how this federal appeal will
take at least another year, and then he'll find some other way to keep this
nonsense going. If this guy is executed by Xmas 2014, 2 years from now,
I'll be very surprised.
TWENTY FOUR YEARS later this guy is still breathing and costing taxpayers money
for food and lawyers.That alone makes this a horrible miscarriage of
justice.And, I don't care how lousy the killer's childhood
was. He had free will and could have stopped any of the numerous criminal acts
he committed. But he chose not to, and he chose to kill another person, after
unspeakable atrocities. He bears full responsibility for his actions, and it is
long past overdue that the legally rendered sentence be carried out.Today, our justice system serves only the rights of criminals, not the rights
of their victims of law abiding society.
