    Those sentimental folks who say away with death row, need a kick in the pants. How would you feel if it was you these guys shot, what would you say, forgive them and let them keep killing, or will you forgive them an allow the law to execute them? who know your husband or children might me next. I say execute and let God judge them.

    This is why EVERY law abiding family out there should have shatter-proof security doors and windows and several home defense firearms as wel as one on their person wen out and about. I’m struggling, i’m broke, but I could never imagine doing anything like this! No excuse… I hope they use that shiny brand spankin new gas chamber on the garbage that did this.
