he took the lives of many including a child. to not take his life, cheapens their tragic loss. it says we are not even valuable enough to make a criminal pay the ultimate price. he forced the ultimate price onto his victims for all the wrong reasons. its fair he should pay the ultimate price in return but under a thoughtful managed judicial system. that brings balance to life. dont make me pay for his welfare prisoned housing. i have to work to pay rent and food and electric. he will get it for free. and while it may be a bad place for you or i to reside, the sad thing is i suspect inmates adjust to prison life and it is not so horrible as we are mislead to believe. not for their criminal minds at any rate. our lives are cheapened and made meaningless when we do not take from crimials in that way. this isnt so much about right or wrong of taking a felon life as it is an issue of justifying the prison guards job, the judges job, the lawyers job, the stenographer job, the counselor job. etc.. it is a greater victory for the justice system to make us resigned to no justice than to give justice. that makes 350MM people easier to control when their sprits are made into submission. if someoone were to take my life in a criminal fashion, i would want their life taken in turn. anyone who would work against that would be naively misguided or just plain wrong. i would not hold any loyalty toward a justice system or faith that wrote off my existance so cheaply.

lowly animals scrounging about in the forest that chaotically encounter brutal random contact with predators have more of an instinctive right to take life in their defense than we as supposedly learned men. our birth right to survival is stolen from us by the elite who abandon us to crime and insult our suffering by housing these monsters. its like they just want to take a **** on us and tell us to 'eat cake'. no authority deserves respect for that kind of base betrayal.
