So I heard this on the news Friday morning, then I read the story online.

I’m not sure about whether the death penalty is truly the right thing or truly the wrong thing to do. I can see both sides of this argument.

But if we’re going to have it at all, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, it would be a more effective deterrent if the criminal didn’t get 20+ more years to live than his victim!!!!!!!!!! Couldn’t that line be drawn a little sooner? Say, cut it off at TEN?

The alternative could be life without parole (and no more than one appeal, thereby saving the courts’ time and money).

Twenty-three years of free food and lodging before he was executed? Really?
Sweet Lord!
