Leave it to our corrupt court system to let a killer go back on the streets to kill again. The people who let him go free the first time should be held accountable in some way. What will it take to keep criminals in jail?!

I guess that somebody forgot to tell him that only whites are serial killers. He looks like something that would murder little girls. I wonder how long he'll last in the slammer?

They should hang him by his hair until it all falls out, then let him rot in jail for the rest of his pathetic life in total confinement with no rights, whatsoever. No mercy! The death penalty is the easy way out for him.

It's about time our justice system had some [email protected] When people like this are clearly guilty they should just take them out behind the courthouse and put a bullet in the back of there head. End of story. Why spend all the money on appeal after appeal after appeal plus all the costs of incarceration. Get it over with already so this person can't harm anyone else!

This "guy" is weird and thankfully will never see the light of day ever again. He should get the Death Penalty but like he said (and I cant believe I am agreeing with anything he said) by the time appeals and all run their course he will be dead from "Natural Causes" long before that. I hope someone in prison kills him or someone just gets rid of him now. THis "guy" has been living a charmed life for too long now - the fact he is still alive means he is living a Charmed life. Get rid of him NOW

MURDERS ? As in MANY ? His convictions were OVERTURNED ? What is WRONG with the legal system ? How did this man get away with murdering ALL those people? People who deserved a life and then families of there own. How is it that our system lets SO many murderers FREE to commit MORE crimes and then when they do all they say is 'Oh I'm so sorry he fell thru the cracks in the legal system'. If more criminals committed crimes against Judges and lawyers and anyone connected to the court/legal system Trust me, there would be LESS of this 'falling thru the cracks' crap and more criminals in JAIL where they belong. Why are we waiting for Death row inmates to be taken care of ? For those whose evidence is 'Incontrovertible' I say get rid of them NOW !! Why wait for some moron lawyer who will overturn some other idiots judgement and then let this animal loose ? Let ME run the legal system with an IRON fist and those who want JUSTICE will NOT lack for it. There is WAY too much paperwork and forms, they had it right in the old west, you committed a crime and you were SHOT right there, not later. The needs of the many,(victims), outweigh the needs of the few, those idiots who are in the wrong place at the wrong time and are convicted, which now seems to be few and far between.

Put him in prison and let the other prisoners take care of him....they don't like child rapists and child killers in there. And the guards will turn the other way, trust me (I worked in a prison as a nurse years ago).

This pathetic excuse for a human killed Miss Samsoe and went to prision, he has since been getting his death penalty overturned over and over on appeal. The latest attachment of murder for these 4 other young women was only recently. Now he will likely start the same appeal process again. Yes indeed he will die of old age before the state of California ever puts him to death. Other states are now trying to tie him to unsolved murders in those states. It is my hope that he is extradited to one of these states that will in fact put him to death. He deserves to burn in hell. There are no redeeming qualities to him.

Death, yes. But not the quick type.
Tear off bits of his body each month until he begs for his DEATH. When that day comes, lock him up in his cellar and give him a knife to end it all himself so that God condems him to exile next to satan.

THIS IDIOT HAD TO BE SENTECED LONG TIME AGO. HE SHOULD OF DIED LONG TIME AGO WE AS EMPLOYEES WHO WORK VERY HARD FOR OUR FAMILY & WE ARE SUPPORTING SERIAL KILLERS FROM TAX MONEY. ALSO HOW COULD HE REPRESENT HIMSELF, THATS WHY WE HAVE ATTORNEYS WHO GO TO COLLEGE & STUDY LAWS. THIS IDIOT MAYBE DIDN'T EVEN FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL.

"Calif. judge sentences serial killer to death"

==========

Great, now we're gonna have to wait 30 years until he has exhausted his appeals.

By then, he would've already been dead of old age.

After all, we're not in Texas.

He will never be executed, he will sit on death row wasting tax dollars while idiotic bleeding hearts cry about putting him to death protesting his execution and then some sick demented loser will write to him and get married to him. lets hope someone in prison beats him to death.

Death penalty in CA is a joke. I hope he gets raped three times a day in jail. Death is too kind for his kind.
