Killers today are viewed with less disdain than in previous years gone by. Their victim never complains and the general public wasn't affected by the crime. Is there any harm in setting the offender free? Setting them free only diminishes the seriousness of killing someone. Incarceration is punishment and their sentence by any amount of time, compared to the victim who is dead for eternity, is very lenient. Those incarcerated for murder still have their life. An execution would have made their sentence eternal without having life. Serving life in prison is a much better deal than their victim received.

Let us not forget the former Canfield Dairy Queen owner Trent Rapp who had a special affection for young boys.

Guns are the problem and not the solution.
When our civillian deaths by gunfire far exceed our deaths in all combat zones by our military then we have a problem.

I personally would like to see the person who provided the alcohol for these minors to pay a substantial fine and or do some jail time. Without the booze this crime would not have happened.

You can be taken captive and beheaded with no outcry. Urinating on a dead Taliban will bring an outcry and charges. The lesson to be learned here is that we should be taking captives and beheading them.

You can be that the Taliban doesn't prosecute their own for anything done to our soldiers.

No motive? He killed the wife of a cop.

When the killers don't have to face the ultimate cost for taking a life then life itself is devalued.

Nostalgia is only good if you can read about it and don't have to relive it. Those so called wonderful times caught up with Jim Donofrio who vanished without a trace. When will closure come for his family?
