She committed a bad crime so that makes her a bad person. Too bad she couldn't be smothered and hacked to death.
A public hanging, just like in the old wild west, would be more appropriate.

Ohhh, how I feel that Williams Family might see her die through a window---what about seeing pictures of her bloody husband, stabbed how many time? and her little kids, suffocated, with their little eyes popping out, lifeless little angels that will never go to school and play with their friends, run in the park, laugh--- what about that?

burn the Witch!! I hope while the trial is still going on, some crazy immate shoves something up her and comes out her mouth, slow painfull death!

I guess civil rights mean nothing to you. The only thing that sets us apart from the thrid world is our compassion to provide a defense for any person. No matter how vile the crime of the accused, and in this case the convicted, you cannot place any blame at the feet of the defense attorney.
What will you do if they come for you? I will resist the Nazi argument so often inserted here, and remind you that my family members were shipped off to concentration camps here in California in the 1940's because some bigoted government hacks thought native born Americans were subversive because of their epicanthic fold.
This case can have no happy ending. Killing Manling will not provide relief or closure to anyone close to her husband or children. The only emotion that will give comfort is forgiveness. I know in the circumstances that will be harder on the soul than accepting the death of beloved family member and his kids. The relief of forgiving will rewarm the hearts so damaged by Manling. Vengence belongs only to God, no mather what path you follow in faith.
The voice of reason is a lonely one.

It's really disheartening to hear what happened to their family. Having known both of them (Ling and Neal), they had their share of problems early on. It wasn't the best of situations for both of them, but there was hope that they would make it. What really triggered her outburst? I don't think it's as simple as what has come out in court...

The natural reaction when you hear of someone that has done something this brutal is to want to see them get the death penalty.

For all involved to let them heal, the best situation is to give her life in prison.
