When we would argue with the Bible, then we can say that Jesus overcame the old law "an eye for an eye" with being crucified and with his message to turn the other cheek when being beaten.

His new message is of passive resistance and forgiveness while the old was of war and capital punishment and revenge.

"An eye for an eye" furthermore originated not with the Jews but with the Assyrians and the Codex of Hammurabi.

I am all for the death penalty but I think it has become way too expensive to the taxpayer. I say either figure a way to reduce the appeals process and expense or just give them life with no chance for parole, put them in a 8 by 8 cell and be done with it.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure who Kevin Scudder is because I could not get past your stupid "poor white girl" comment. I hope you are not suggesting that the crime is any greater because it was a white girl? Now onto my point...
I understand both views on this. I'm the daughter of a victim and a sister of a murderer. My brother murdered my parents 27 years ago. Do I think he should have gotten the dealth penalty? Part of me says yes, you take a life, you pay with your own life. On the other hand, he's my brother. I can understand how you look at a picture of this men and think animal or monster... but they are still someones child, brother, uncle, family.
My brother got life without parole, but I also got life. I hae not seen him in 26 years. I've been looking for closure for 27 years, maybe his death would have brought me that!
Yeah I understand what your saying about it not being a Greater crime blah blah blah and you have the right to freely express how you feel and so does everyone else and if you are black and I take it you are! if your loved one was murdered in Cold blood by a white man then it would become a problem Im not racist or anything like that but Tina Marie Baisden was my Aunt and It is a problem when a 26 year old black (mixed) man rapes and murders a 14 yr.old white girl so before you want to have an attitude and say smartass things get your facts straight

Can anyone answer why Kevin Scudder is still alive?
He raped and killed a poor white girl off Parsons Ave over 20 some years ago and his still wasting air .... He could be number 8.
Thank you, he should be number 8 I am Tina baisden's neice.
and for people that say this post is racy because, Bodie say's "poor white girl" the truth is she was, she was murdered and raped stabbed over 46 times by a 26 year old man weather he was black or not in the situation she was a "poor white girl" that could not defend herself! And If it was the other way around a 14 yr old black girl that got murdered by a 26 year old white man It would be a problem then right? I think I proved my point!

Kevin Scudder is alive because of people who are more with his stinkin life than with justice. My dad testified against this douchebag and what occurred when Kevin came home that night and threw the knife in the dumpster... F him, and all the whiny biatches who don't think he deserves to die....If you take one, you give one....simple as that....

Kevin Scudder also kidnapped and raped my sister in Cirville Ohio, Needless to say, she is not a poor white girl, she is also a victim. He is a sick individual, does not need to breathe any of the oxygen left on this earth. As her sister, I had to be the one to hear her scream at night after she came home, hold her while she cried, be afraid on men, noises, she was fn 14, she trusted him he killed Tina behind scioto downs, I never knew him, but talk about crazee, kills a girl I knew in high school, and then took my sister, kept her for 3 months, 3 months, Thank God I had police force in my family, he called as someone concerned for my sister, trying to help my mom find Kevin and my sister Laura, It was him calling all along, we traced the phone number to an address and got that sick f, She is 40 now, still has relationship issues, I read somwhere he is sick, and refused medical treatment, too bad so sad, you are in there to ROT, not get help, I cannot wait to hear when he is executed. Maybe my sister can rest. Yes he may be someones brother, son, uncle, but he is also 2 familes worst nightmares, May God have no mercy on his soul, Oh forgot, he does nto have one.................
