It's a shame that the VV police didn't empty their clips on him when he smashed into the PD lobby with a loaded gun. It would've saved the taxpayers the agony of paying for a lenghty trial and incarceration. Dick Calkins, you are going to prison for the rest of your pathetic life.

You know I understand that Richard killed 2 people WHILE ON DRUGS, They were all on drugs! Thatis not fair because obviously all of them were making stupid choices at the time. Drugs do tend to drive you crazy. The people who died have a family yes and my condolenses go to them ad my respect to those who died. But people shoot people purposely everyday. Murders stab people in prison everyay. Richie is my family, my big cousin that I was raised with and it hurts to see him in this situaion but you know what he doesnt deserve to be killed, you idiot. Because nobody deserves to die yet it happens everyday. Yet this world only critizes the people the media brodcast did something wrong.!

If you kill you deserve to be killed. You would feel differently if your cousin was the one killed. Nobody deserves to die? Hitler didn't deserve to die? How about people who rape little girls, Stab her, and Stab an infant child? Do they deserve to die?

I do support the death penalty, but if found guilty would you at least agree your cousin deserves life without the possibility of parole??

Drugs or no drugs, he killed people and deserves to be killed in return. If I remember correctly he was on parole at the time so hat means the prison time does not seem to effect his future behavior.
