First of all, no matter how evil, everyone deserves a full and fair trial. The reason is because,
if we start making exceptions, someday we will be hanging people who did nothing at all.
Justice isn't about how much it costs, its about how fair it is. In addition we have to define
whether we want justice, or revenge. If we are intent on revenge we will fit right in with the
Sharia Crowd from the Middle East.
We do not need to put people on trial because we are angry and intent on punishment, without
facts and evidence. People admit to committing crimes because they are threatened by the
police with being put in general population, and for a host of other reasons. I do believe in this
case however, that these guys are guilty as hell and should remain in prison. I have a real
tough time with the death penalty because even though we have DNA its not perfect and the
people who work with it are not perfect, and there are cases of error.
Every case is different true, but remember every case is linked by precedent and someday
that precedent, fair or not might be used against anyone of us. We must be very careful in
how we apply the law. There are many who would advocate for such justice measures, until
one of their close family is confronted with the possibility of being put to death.
