  1. I’ve often wondered how you and the other family members of all the OCCK victims felt about the death penalty, and what type of punishment would be fit for the individual(s) responsible for your loved ones’ murders.

    1. Dale, I can only speak for myself, of course, but here’s how I look at it. With all of the DNA exonerations that have come to light over the past few years, I do not believe the death penalty is defensible. A punishment in these cases will never be meted out, but in my opinion a fitting punishment would be life in prison without the possibility of parole, in the general prison population.

  2. Here’s my take: God expects us humans to take care of ourselves and each other. We know and God knows that we are not perfect, therefore we can’t be held responsible if some individuals are executed in error, assuming that there was incontrovertible evidence that such an individual was guilty of the most heinous of crimes. I am saying we do indeed need the death penalty, not to PUNISH, not to DETER, but to save ourselves from such criminals. Save our necks and save the millions of dollars worth of care they don’t deserve. We have children dying of malnutrition and neglect in THIS country but we are feeding, housing, clothing, protecting and giving medical care to MURDERERS. Say WHAT?
    I do believe the death penalty should be administered only in cases of child killing, sex killings and mass murder. I think the ones who work for hire or kill for profit need to eat cheese sandwiches for the rest of their lives and forced, perhaps, to have unwanted sex in prison. That’s a good punishment for idiots.
