He killed someone. No mental history or alcohol abuse is going to change that. He took two lifes.

Just a few months ago I would have said "Good, Let him die" but my views have drastically changed. The death penility is wrong, plain and simple. I find it ironic that so many people that consider themselves Christian align themselves with the Republican right and are in favor of the death penalty. They must be reading from a different Bible than the one I'm reading from. The 10 Commandments are the basic laws of God that he expects us all to live by, plain and simple and without question and without exception. We are not to bend the laws to fit into our preceptions of what may be right in a given situation. Never is the case for acceptable adultry argued, so why is the case for killing another human reguardless of what haneous crimes they have commitmitted?

I liked vlog. This is definitely a controversial issue no matter what side of the fence you're in.

interesting that they read the mental history, which in my opinion, is not really the issue. The basic facts remain: his execution does not deter others from murder and cost the state more money than life in prison and rehabilitation. There are better solutions.
