The death penalty has never been needed more.

To think that the two perverts who killed the boy and had sex with his dead body will someday be eligible to get out free.

Even Manson gets hearings to determine if ( when?) he can get out.

Good sense is to keep these criminal in jail and not let them out for any reason until the day they die. Until we as a society say this is to be the way justice is applied then those who want the death penalty have a valid point of contention.

they as murderers should stay in jail for the rest of there lives like the rest of murderers who get life. i know everything in life isnt perfect. but that should be automatic. and that crime on a child should get the death penalty.

13 feet of fine hemp rope would have been a better investment for those two then care and feeding them for life!

I remember that day like it was yesterday, being a Mom of three kids, I cannot even imagine the griping pain that goes through his parents everyday of the rest of their lives. I firmly believe death is the only solution in this case.

Sooner or later the inmates will get him. Even career criminals can't tolerate such perversion. I will be happy when that day comes when we find out they were killed in jail.

If there was ever a case that deserved the death penalty that was it! The vote was shortly after that case and the bleeding heart liberals won again. Those 2 maggots should have been dragged under the courthouse right after their verdicts were read and shot in there useless heads. Child molesters and terrorists are exactly the same. You can't change them might as well do everyone a favor and kill them.

Not only am I in favor of the death penalty, I believe that it should be on TV, to send a message.
But, if your going to put it back on the books, be prepared to actually use it. No one is afraid of a "paper tiger".
With DNA, the chances of putting down the wrong person, are about non-existent.
The appeals, should be cut to two [2]. One state, one federal. Then, they get the needle. Why should the tax payer carry this "trash" for many years, while lawyers get rich.
Judge Roy Bean had it right. "I guarantee you a fair trial and a speedy hanging."

These two animals should not be allowed eat 3 meals a day, go outside for fresh air,read books etc all at the expense of the tax payers. They deserve to die. This story still makes my skin crawl. How any human being is capable of such acts I'll never understand.

Our country says we shall live in a civilized society but it isn't...because if we were civilized these crimes would never take place and I know God says revenge is his however these maniacs should be put to death by way of being thrown into the hungriest lion's den not by lethal injection that is way too easy. How many children have to suffer before this country gets serious about these no good for nothing evil violent people??? This is the only question I have for God on my judgement day.

I agree with this article 100%, to this day I get so sickened just re-reading about what they did to that poor child, and his family, sigh...
Dan Shaughneey nailed it on the head too, we truly need old testament law, there is no deterring these lowest of low sick perverts, look how many get out of prison and do the same thing again! I know I beat a dead horse on here about this a lot but you stand to serve more time if you cheat on your taxes than if you molest, rape or kill someone! Talk about non justice.
We truly do need to bring the death penalty back, problem is, would the powers that be enforce it? I wonder when I see so many news articles recently about child molesters who are back out on the streets after light sentences, look at that creep up in Hooksett who thinks people shouldn't have a problem with him living in their neighborhood...these freaks cry about THEIR rights! what about the rights of their victims, and the victims families? Oy! sorry to go on a rant but this whole thing just sickens me so.

I think life without the possibility of paroll is a better punishment. I know if I was sentenced to that, I would prefer lethal injection. My husband is a retired prison guard and the way the inmates are treated is pretty bad. It's not the way to live for 40 or 50 years. Obviously, that would mean no furloughs for funerals and such.

I also don't think televising it or putting it on the internet would be a deterant either. I think these people don't think they are going to get caught so it can't happen to them.

Recently, Susan Atkins wanted to be released on mercy because she was dying of cancer. I'm glad they denied her. I know she was suffering but all I could think of was a young mother begging for her life and the life of her unborn child. He would be 40 today.

The current death penalty is too soft for these guys. A little needle prick and they drift off. Last week they couldn't locate a vein so some sleazy child rapist was given another week to live, now he's crying cruel and unusual punishment!

And what about the person who is innocent and we put them to death.

We are human, we can and have erroneously convicted innocent persons.

Personally, I don't care what happens to those two guys. They could get their brains beaten in prison for all I care. However, I oppose the death penalty on the grounds that mistakes will be made, and that it is inevitable that the wrong person will be executed.(It's already happened.)

A couple of months ago it was revealed that a man who was executed in Texas probably didn't set the fire that killed his wife. In fact, experts now say it wasn't even arson. What recourse does that guy have?

Because criminal prosecutions and executions are carried out by human beings, they will always be subjected to human error. This alone is sufficient reason for saying "no" to capital punishment.

There are many compelling reasons for and against the death penalty that are based on reason. I don't see the need for bringing scripture into it.

See, that's my take on it. The dealth penalty is easier. Why do you think these prisoners are on suicide watch all the time? They don't want to be there. Staying in jail is more of a punishment.

And it is true, people make mistakes and sometimes the wrong man is convicted.
