No a-hole, these guys are out to win a conviction against your son. Your son is the only killer in that courtroom.
No, man! This guy was on trial; he wasn't a convicted murderer. I strongly support the death penalty, but the attitude toward its execution is very important for our whole society. From the report:
"It's a solemn event when the state decides that they want to kill one of their citizens," said Dane Ciolino, a Loyola University Law School professor. "To be cute and flippant about it clearly is wrong."

You're right. I regretted posting that almost as soon as I hit the button. I also said the man's son was the only killer in the court room...stupidly ignoring the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Thanks for calling me on it, it was a stupid thing to post.
