Why does it have to take so long, when you are convicted of a crime by a jury of your peers, then get it over with. Why does the family and taxpayers have to pay.

I feel very sorry for the victim and her family. What a terrible loss for such a young, promising life. I believe that Overstreet should spend the rest of his days contemplating his actions in prison. I am further saddened that our state condones government-sponsored murder. The death penalty is not the proper punishment, and should never be used under any circumstances whatsoever.

Dear Sad,

If you oppose the death penalty, that is your right. I do not, and that is also my right. But, what NEITHER of us should do is speak imprecisely about it. The debate is far too serious for that, and language is too important to the debate.

Therefore, I point out to you that the death penalty is not "murder" as you assert. "Murder," by definition, is an UNlawful killing. Because the death penalty is sanctioned by the State, it is not unlawful. You may find it distasteful; you may believe it inhumane or uncivilized. But to call it "murder" goes far too far. It is certainly NOT that.

These are the types that make my blood boil.

These mothers basement dwellers who cant get a woman so they go out and prey on people.

I suggest these cases are the ones where citizen volunteers get to redo the crime on this perp!

I want him to be strangled and shot in the forehead. I will leave the rape part to the devil!

I used to think this way until I realized that people in prison don't suffer. They have 3 full meals a day and a roof over their head. Many people in our society don't even get that. I know they are locked up and don't get to see their families, but if they have no remorse for what they've done, they aren't suffering. If suffering is what you want, don't abolish the death penalty, fight to bring back the electric chair or hanging. It's much more effective.

How about an electric couch, that way we can execute 4- 5 people at a time, plus save taxpayers money ?
