She didn't raise her child - How did she do her best? Beautiful people don't walk out on their children.

I don't believe in the death penalty, however, Lazale should spend lots of time in prison for what he did to that young lady.I know Lazale's mother personally. She is a beautiful person. Have you ever thought that she did the best she could to raise him. People make mistakes. Calling her a drug addict is so wrong. She was not on trial, it was her son who was on trial.

Thank you Judge Espinosa for making the right decision in this case.
Hopefully the appeals process will be swift so the convicted felon will get his just reward.
Only goes to show that most black men are animals who should be caged as such. I don't care to hear about how they were abandoned by their mothers. My best was abandoned by her mother, and she's got a degree. What does that make of her?

Cheryl shut your trap. You're only protecting her becuase your close to her crackhead ass. She was a damn crackhead who should've never had this demon come out of her womb.

BallBags,

Ease up on the "most black men are criminals" comment. This is 2008, man. Killers come in all shapes and sizes. Some get their just due, some don't. That's life.

And it was Joe Taborsky, who along with another man (Arthur Cuolombe) killed about a half dozen store owners around central CT.

I didn't say that, of course, but the truth doesn't matter much to you anyway, does it Ronnie?(That's one of the things we can discuss at our chit-chat).

An alcoholic, gambling addict. How nice. A letter should go out to the parents of the God forsaken school district that you work for.

Prior to Michael Ross, it was Joseph Taborsky who got electric. Started his criminal career when he was a teenager. The press used to go to the library and request his inmate file every time he (Arthur Colombe) came up for parole.

And it wasn't a half dozen store owners around central CT. It was about a half dozen people at a package store in New Britain.

Almost right George.

The 6 at once in New Britain were by Ron (I think) Pioworski (I think). Close though).

Taborsky and Cuolombe did stores and one at a time executed the owners. One on Zion St. in Hartford where I was 2 blocks down. Pioworski's was the Donna Lee Bakery, I believe, and he did 6 or 7 at once.

Nice guys.

You're all glorifying murder. Who did what and to whom. You should all smarten up and put your heads together and decide how you can become better people and spread some cheer and goodwill. I lived in New Britain. I knew people who died at the Donna Lee Bakery. Keep smiling when you go pay your taxes that are housing these animals and wonder why kids aren't getting an education, but rather one on the streets. Where do you spend your welfare checks? Say yes to the death penalty and these assholes will think twice. Jerks!

You are righ on. My 27 year old brother was one of the victims. I wished they had the death penalty in CT.
