Lucente’s plan would see rampant murder
I am sitting here reading the article written by Thomas J. Lucente Jr. in the Sunday Lima News on Feb 9.
He wants to end the death penalty in all states. In my opinion ending the death penalty would create open season on all citizens in our country.
Lucente, don’t you think the young lady killed by a knife and strangled with her child in her suffered more than 20 minutes? Showing mercy and compassion for a MURDERER is ridiculous! An EYE for an EYE.
The best deterrent and most cost-effective method is a good old rope and a tall oak tree. No suffering involved. One snap and its all over for the sicko who murders an innocent individual.
I for one am tired of those who always defend someone who kills. War criminals are treated in the same respect to death row inmates.
Sure, no doubt there are individuals on death row who are innocent. When DNA proves them innocent send them home. For the ones who are guilty send them on their way.
