1985? Are they sure he didn’t die of old age?

Wow, this guy was a piece of work...

Killed his common law wife in 1976...

Killed his second wife in 1985 two years after getting out of prison for the first murder...

Then he killed her 5 year old son...

This guy lived about 28 years too long...

And yet the law demands the death of a child in less than seven months.

There are 4-5000 people on death row. Start now and clean all of them off death row. It would be a sign that America does not tolerate rotten murderers et al.

The leading cause of death in the US is abortion.

“And yet the law demands the death of a child in less than seven months.”

YEP! And the child is an innocent.

GOD IS AWARE OF WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS DOING UNDER THE DEMS. Pray that the punishment will be for the Dems. only, because it will be harsh.

Once again, a lot of death penalties could be expedited by legalizing the firing squad. Likewise, it could be put in as an option, so if the *means* of execution is challenged in court, the state could opt to use the firing squad.

This means lethal injection, electrocution, the gas chamber, all could be used because if challenged, the state could just shrug and say shoot them.

Whole lot of gub mint higher ups deserve the death penalty.
Were I on a grand jury I’d vote to indict a whole passel of these criminals.
Public hangings and allow it on T.V. and let em hang for a few weeks to send a message to future gub mint criminal types.
