As a Christian, I'm supposed to forgive him for his sins...

Unfortunately, I can't do that. I hope a few inmates and possibly a few guards get a hold of him and torture him for several hours before finally cutting his head off. When I read that the girl asked for her stuffed animal before he buried her alive, I just about lost it.

I've had the responsibility of helping raise my niece since she was a baby (4 years old now), and this kind of thing makes me want to homeschool her. I'm going off to college in a year, and I'll hate not being there to look over her.

My dad has always said this: "Turn them over to the Fathers." Then you see justice.


I think you're confusing vengance with justice. If you want to argue that punishment for crime should be decided by the victim of the crime (or victim's family), that's one thing, but let's not pretend that the result of that would be anything close to justice.

Dear Art.

You confuse an angry response with an actual proposal for reform in the CJ system. Nobody is actually suggesting that turning the SOB over to the little girls dad is a viable option. Although, if dad were to get to deal out the punishment... vengance AND justice would both be well served!

Liberals... ;-7 :-b

justice: deserved reward or punishment; the rendering of what is due or merited.

I dunno, given that definition I think the result would be extremely close to justice.
