Let her rot....my grandfather was murdered,(RIP Charlie McCann) just before thanksgiving a few years ago, because a mother, and her son, and two friends, decided that they wanted his prescription meds, money and old coins. Two of them are out now, which I think is awful, the mother and son are doing 40 yrs I think, and the son wants a new trial...An eye for an eye, she shouldnt expect to have her life, when she took someone else life.

No one has the right to play God and take a life. Not even the mighty US of A. This is so ridiculous you pretend to be the light for other nation but execute like a primitive third world country. I laugh at your hypocrite democracy!!!

her sentence should stand. she did the crime and this is her punishment, i would not want this woman in my neighborhood, around my kids or myself. she will never be reformed. these people cannot be fixed. its not fair to the murdered girls family for her to go free or sit in jail they need closure

I still claim that no human has the right to kill another human . These decisions of who will live and who will die are not for us to decide. Those who sent her to die are no better than her! She took a life and they did too. These death row celebrations are a disgrace to the United States and a big shame for all human kind!!!
there are other ways to prevent them from killing again and there are other ways to punish these people and make them sorry for what they did. You are sending them to die with your on the fly messages as if it's a matter of joy or negligence.

I'm surprised someone from Israel disagrees with the Torah.

This is so naive to think that all the people of Israel are Torah believers(sometimes i chat with people who think that we still ride camels and has no cars).
But back to the subject while the Sanhedrine(which was something like a supreme court had to execute a person in 80 years it was called a lethal Sanhedrine, the cases of execution was so rare. But next to the written Torah stands the non written Torah which Jews likes to call Halkha, and that Halkha represent the way a Jew should live, according to the Halakha an eye for an eye means that the offender will have to compensate the victim with a sum that a judge will decide is equal to the loss (not that the loss of a chiled is something to measure but it was accepted in the ancient world, the Salic law for example)
I don't say that in the past the Israelite did not execute but you have to admit that 2000 years ago is a long time, you really want to tell me that United state is way back 200 AD?????

Many of the laws made in ancient times still stand today because society still has the same problems it had back then.

and execution should be one of them???
this is a steep slop that you are playing with. humanity already saw what can happened when people hide behind laws and performs the worst crimes ever.

for gods sake, she killed someone.of course it was someones child. it has to be. but i, for one moment do not think that ms pike wanted for this to go as far as it did.even mrs martinez has had enough of this "torture", for pitys sake let the poor woman bury her daughter.christa pike is paying for her sins,mrs martinez has said that she wishes that ms pike should spend the rest of her life in prison, ms pike accepts that fate. so who are we to decide?. ive heard about "satanism" ect,come on!,she made one hell of a big mistake.lets give mrs martinez what she so desperatley needs ,which is to bury her daughter & move on as best she could with the rest of her life as she deserves. mrs martinez is prepared to see some closure to the devistating loss of her daughter colleen, so please show her some respect, & give that greiving mother what she wants.

Christa know what she done was wrong, so why have her kilt?
She was just a young until who made a mistake. I do feel bad for the victim, but more killing don'the do not one no good. We should pray insted.
No one but God should take no life. Maybe Jesus too.
