I belive that no matter what all people pay for what crimes they have committed. It is very sad that our goverment is more worried about over population of a jail then the crimes that are committed outside of the jail, but who are we to deterim someoneseles fate.
The man that killed her will have to answer to his crimes. Nothing will ever bring her back not even HIS death.

If the law followed the standard for punishment in the bible, there wouldn't even be a debate, here. He has lived in prison almost twice the length of the life he took in 1975. Statistics show that MOST men who have spent 33 years behind bars will re-offend. He didn't just kill once. He killed many times. Why he would be considered for parole is an injustice. Keep him in there.

I would rather have them be released and become productive tax paying citizens than have my taxes continue to support them in prison. But as far as the penal system is concerned, it's all about the money. After all, Bent County Correctional Facility is a FOR PROFIT PRIVATE PRISON. Therefore they have no incentive to rehabilitate people, they want their beds to stay filled.
Would you care if he moved next door to your daughter/sister/mother, and did the same to her? Would you admit then, thas some people are not rehabilitatable material? Some are amoral, with no sense of right or wrong. These men killed for SPORT-no other reason. What contribution to society do you want from them? They don't have anything to contribute that I want.

Both men were given the death penalty, however it was repealed. Not long after their trials, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned death penalty laws throughout the nation, and those who were then on death row saw their sentences commuted to life in prison. But life in prison, in those days, was not necessarily a life sentence. While Colorado has since reestablished the death penalty and now also provides for a sentence of life in prison without parole, in 1976, things were different. Back then, a life sentence was calculated to run roughly 10 years. Corbett and Glenn both saw their sentences commuted to consecutive life terms. The upshot is that both men could soon be paroled.

I didn't even know Kelsey Grammer had a sister. Well... I guess he doesn't... technically.

These men killed several people that are known and are purported to have killed many more.

It is not a decsion about rehabilition or safety to the community.

It is about justice and morality. Not only have these people who would have been productive to the world had their rights taken from them, there are hundereds of people who live in the specter of their death.

These men have lost all rights to be out in the commuinity to enjoy freedom that they took from others.

Keep them humanly but never let them out.
