How bizarre and twisted is this? The old geezer has been sitting in prison for thirty years, on appeals, now the jury wants the death penalty. Again? And, what was he trying to prove to the court? That he's crazy? Maybe to avoid the chamber and get a cushier bed at an institution?

He should stop and realize...he's in California...we don't execute here. We coddle these monsters until they finally turn up their heels and die of old age...which seems to take forever.

God Bless the families of these victims...they will never see true justice or satisfaction for their loved ones.

How could a judge let him play that horrible song in court? Is there no sense of humanity here? Waste of taxpayers money, as usual.

I don't think that this man will every see the death penalty occur. Why have a death penalty that you don't use? We the taxpayers will now have to pay for this man's upkeep for the rest of his life plus all of his appeals.

He is a hideous and cruel man to play that song as part of his defense. I think that it was just another twisted way to make the families suffer.

He killed 4 people and doesn't deserve to live. California follow through on your death penalty verdicts! Quit wasting time and the taxpayers money! Give the families and the victims justice.
