It is amazing to think that all of us out here work to pay taxes so jokers like this one can post personal ads on the computer. I think that they should get this whole death row thing straight, you had to commit a serious crime to be there, but yet they live better than our vets that live on the streets. Doesn't make much sense. Why don't they just get this over with one less person on death row and one less person we have to pay for to help them live a good life behind bars.

Live better than people on the streets? You really need to get a reality check and find out what takes place in prisons. Good life behind bars????? You have got to be kidding...you have no clue of what life in prison is like and I guess you prefer to remain ignorant. I can tell you many things that take place on death row in california that would sicken you.

Chris, That's good to know. It kinda restores my faith in our Death Row system. I surely hope life on Death Row is very sickening, close to a Hell on Earth in fact. Unfortunately, it's still better than what his innocent victims (and families) had to endure. Hopefully, this will be corrected soon (if Ed Rendell has any giblets). Adios, Marky-boy...and good riddance!!

I know Mark Spotz, I knew his brother Dustin who he murdered first. He then killed an 87 year old woman and then raped a 74 woman and stole her car.

Betty Amstead was one of his victims.

Mark Spotz killed his brother Dustin over an argument they had over a girl, the one Mark later married, who had 1 child to him and 2 children to another man after Mark went to prison.

The last time I saw Mark Spotz was in Carlisle PA after his court hearing when he shouted point blank right outside the court house

"f-you, I'm not scared to die"

I would personally push the plunger if I could, Dustin was a very good friend of mine, I was at his funeral.

Listen I know Mark and he was abused by his parents and he did not abuse his brother in any kind of way, if you knew the situation, dustin stabbed him 12 times in the back, and they weren't fighting over a girl, they were fighting over a gerbal that dustin put in his face while Mark was sleeping,and for the girl he married his 1st wife is my best friend, and they didn't have any children together, People need to live their own lives instead of judging people, If any of you knew mark, really knew him, you would know he is the kindest man ever and the girl who was with him while the killings happened wasn't his wife, was a friend, well so called friend, she was the one who thought of it all, and Mark didn't rape that woman, I am not making excuses for what happened and I am sad for the victims families. People need to stop adding to the gossip on the internet about Mark Spotz, Please Live your own lives and leave Mark ALone.

People need to live their own lives and leave MArk alone, I feel sad for the victims families and can't change what happened, it's sad when people sit online and talk crap on people and don't know the whole situation. For the truth to come out, Dustin stabbed Mark 12 times in the back and that's how it all really started. So people get a life..........

it amazes me that people can defend an action like murder, let alone several murders. I don't care how nice of a person Mark Spotz was...he killed innocent people. Women who never deserved for their lives to end when they did or how they did. He is a sick man. I was in the court house for one of the cases. Time after time, Mark stood in the front of the court house with a straight face, sometimes what even looked like a smirk. There was no regret on his face, no sorrow. He is a sick man, unfortunately he is one of many in our society.

Nice people, by definition, do NOT kill other people. That's what some people seem to have a hard time getting. The fact that he did the things he did, including his previous criminal history, is absolute proof he is not a nice guy. Anyone who can't comprehend that is a complete ignoramus. He probably was smirking. He probably likes the attention.

He did not rape the older woman, but I'm not defending him, just wishing to put the facts in place.

Dawn,

Mark has been extremely clever at manipulating people. You say that he has shown kindness. I have seen this so called kindness in action and in all honesty, it was only a ploy to come across as a nice guy. He does occasionally do something that "appears" kind to others then in the next breath will do something so contrary, almost to devour another individual so as to get his way. He is truly a monster and has no problem showing what seems to be kindness just for the sake of throwing it in the mix to appear otherwise.

You have been on the recieving end of his "kindness" . I am very glad for your sake that he wasn't in the mood to kill or maim you. You wish to see the best in him but really, its the best in yourself that you are looking for and seeing. It is you who are the kind one, you who gives to others. Mark, in all reality, is only trustworthy if what he wants is exactly what you want at the moment. Otherwise he bulldozes without remorse. I've seen him do this time and again. I wouldn't have believed it without having seen it myself.

As far as the girl who was with him being the mastermind, not so. He himself has said otherwise. I kid you not!

Considering the type of animal Mark is there is no chance that he cares what people on this site think of him. Guys like him see other humans in exactly two categories. Category 1: People of whom they can take advantage. Category 2: People who are onto them and won't fall for the con. They have less than no concern for what other people think of them, unless they are conning that person and then that person's opinion is important only as long as there is something to be gained. You, my dear, are in the first category and if he could he'd play some sort of con on you. Luckily for you, though, he won't be getting out so the penal system will protect you from your own nievite.

I am from Morristown, NJ; had followed up Mark's case up to this point. He has melagomania and is paranoid. He has a very sick "inner child" inside himself that did not get the proper attention, Mark is clinging at the end of the cliff. He has too much unprocessed baggage to carry. He deserves pity, not compassion. And all the women who fell for him and bore all his illegitimate children deserve more pity. What kind of women are they anyway? Did they really know and understand what true love is?

No matter what transpired with Mark & his brother, Mark had absolutely no right to go out & kill innocent people. I knew one of them. She didn't even know who Mark was, yet, rather than just steal her car, he viciously killed her. Now you think we shouldn't say anything bad about Mark???? Personally, I'd rather he didn't get the death penalty, but rather be put in solitary confinement, wishing he was dead for the rest of his life.

MARK'S DEATH SENTENCE OUGHT TO BE COMMUTED TO LIFE IMPRISONMENT WITHOUT PAROLE. THIS IS BOTH JUSTICE AND MERCY. THE STATE HAS ALREADY SPENT A LOT FOR HIM, ESPECIALLY HIS EDUCATION IN JAIL. TAX PAYERS MONEY!! BAH! WHAT IS HE COMPLAINING ABOUT? DOUBLE BAH!!

I totally agree. I hardly think 23.5 hours a day in a tiny cell with a toilet and bed is better than life on the outside. Complete isolation from other inmates drives most insane before they enter the death chamber.
