He needs to be sent to an electric chair.
He is a pathetic mess, always was and will leave behind no positive images of him for his children because he never created any.
There is no one in the entire world who will miss him. One day it will be as if he never existed. How sad is that, Ben? Those who know you, know who you really are. Those who know your name, beware. He is a monster.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM. SO I COULD
TEACH HIM A FEW THING.HE SHOULD DIE
FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE. THE PERSON
IN LITCHFIELD SHOULD STAY OUT OF THE
WHOLE SITUATION YOU REALY DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPEND!! I SHOULD PUT YOUR NAME
AND ADRESS ON LINE SO PEOPLE CAN SEE
WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE THEY LIVE NEAR
AND WORK WITH!!!!HOW ABOUT THE COLLECT CALLS FROM PRISON TO THE
LOWELL SCHOOL DEPARTMENT!!!
THE BOTTOM LINE IS HE KILLED SOMEONE AND SHOULD STOP THE BULLSHIT HE WAS
SEEKING TREATMENT FOR BEING @#$%%^
IN THE HEAD AND REFUSED MEDICATIONS
AND NOW SO MANY PEOPLES LIVES ARE
THROWN INTO TURMOIL,,, SAVE TAX
PAYERS MONEY JUST USE THE DEATH PENALTY!!!

Apparently you do not NEED to be insane to get a job as an administrator in the Lowell Public School system, but it does appear to help

He was a computer system administrator, not an "Administrator for the LPCS"
There is a big difference.

The Death Penalty does not "save the taxpayers money." It actually cost several million dollars to impose Capital Punishment.I'm sure if you are sadistic, then you would approve of the death penalty. But it is not a thing a sensible person would want to see imposed. The death penalty is by far, a greater waste of taxpayers dollars than a life sentence in prison.

He needs to be a man for once and face what he did, he needs to go to trial and face the music. Once again Ben has everyone fooled - everyone except those of us who really know him and are well aware of what he is capable of. Incompetent my ---! He knows how to play the game - I am sure he is very "upset" but incompetent? NO WAY!

As a Mom, it breaks my heart to think of this poor woman's children growing up without their Mother. This is beyond sad. I agree with you all and I pray for those children that they grow up to be happy.

I totally agree, as this woman's younger children get older, the last thing they need is this dirtbag trying to "reconnect" with them from prison. Get rid of this waste of human life, it makes me sick!
Eye for an eye is right!

As a minimium he should pay child support for the children he made motherless. If you can charge a man child support for 18 years because they slept with the mother, you can charge them 15 years because they killed the mother.

That is a great point, I didn't think of it that way. One can only hope the mother had a life insurance policy. Though it will not cover all expenses, it would help.
