Seems bad, but it is really justice for the victim/victims.
I used to be anti death penalty, but then I saw a show about a brother and sister killed in their business. Their Mother was distraught as she described their final moments together, being executed by a cold blooded killer. I was horrified at the description.
We have laws for a reason. People get so mad at the thought of "Civil Rights" violations based on race, gender, etc, but are willing to give clemency after a killer has taken away a person's ultimate "civil right," the right to live and breathe!

He had some cojones on him, I'll give him that.
Seems like he had a really bad life, this guy never had a chance........ not an excuse just making a point of it, if parents provide a descent life for their young then they are less likely to turn out like this fellow.
