I don't have a problem with the family asserting their moral beliefs; after all, the issue of the death penalty is a moral question. No, what I would take issue with is the proposition that this scumbag could get paroled someday.

No life sentence is really a life sentence. Anyway the family can go and ask that the scumbag's life be spared, but they better be careful in wishing they had asked it in the first place. Tony Soprano would not be at all charitable towards the fella.

Their 'beliefs' should not trump a policy of putting murders to death.

"...No, what I would take issue with is the proposition that this scumbag could get paroled someday..."

Or escape, or kill in prison.

The legal bar should be appropriately high for a death sentence to be meted out. And it should be as consistent as possible in application.
