No Gay Pride in Moscow

There are 17 comments on the EDGE story from May 15, 2013, titled No Gay Pride in Moscow. In it, EDGE reports that:

It looks like there will be no gay pride parade for LGBT rights activists and supporters to march in in Moscow this year, as the city's government officials refuse to authorize the event, saying "From our point of view, there is no need for such events in the city," the Moscow Times reports.

The solution to MY discomfort with something is to remove YOUR freedom ?
How childishly simple.

Actually, I do. I think death is too easy for them. I think they should be locked up for life, and suffer whatever the rest of their life encounters in prison. I'm sure it won't be pleasant.
I have a number of objections to that:

1. Putting them to Death is JUSTICE.

2. Convicted murders often prey upon, and sometimes murder, other inmates.

3. There have been a number of high-profile cases over the years where a judge sentenced a convicted murderer to life without parole, and years later, they were released to resume their life outside of prison, EVEN THOUGH THEIR GUILT WAS CLEAR, AND THEIR CONVICTIONS WERE NOT OVERTURNED.

A notable example of this was the case of Nathan Freudenthal Leopold, Jr.,(November 19, 1904 – August 29, 1971) a wealthy University of Chicago law student who kidnapped and murdered 14-year-old Robert Franks in 1924 in Chicago.

The judge, Cook County Circuit Court Judge John R. Caverly. presiding over the case of Leopold & Loeb (their names are almost always used together) sentenced each man to to life imprisonment for the murder and 99 years each for the kidnapping. The judge SPECIFICALLY SAID that Leopold should NEVER get out of prison and that he should die there.

Yet, despite the admitted premeditation of the murder, and the careful planning involved, Leopold was released from prison in 1958, got married, and lived, by all accounts, a normal happily married life outside of prison.

So much for "life in prison plus 99 years for the brutal and carefully planned murder of 14 year old Robert Franks.

Leopold SHOULD HAVE BEEN EXECUTED. THAT would have been JUSTICE.

And incidentally, with regards to Point 2 above, Leopold's partner in crime, Richard Loeb, WAS MURDERED IN PRISON BY A CONVICTED MURDERER.

Believe me, I understand how you feel about that. It would be justice, but those people you were referring to, that was a very long time ago. I don't believe there could or would be any reason or justification for letting them out of prison, in their lifetime. I believe that by making them live and deal with the dangers and hardship that prison will entail, will be much worse that having then be put to sleep and never wake up. That's just too easy for monsters like them.
A very long time ago ???!!! He was out of prison, living a happily married life in the 1970's ! That is NOT a "long time ago" ! According to HIS OWN TESTIMONY, he PLANNED the murder of Robert Franks FOR 7 MONTHS ! He NEVER should've gotten out ! But they let him out anyway !
