    Is this the Same person that was locked up for 12 yrs? Live by the sword Die by the sword. Sorry for the family but his track record wasn’t to good.

    So how does the fact that this man served 12 years make him deserving of death? And what gives you the right to criticize this man, even in death, when his family is grieving? You don’t have the right. That’s the bottom line. You are just plain ignorant. I hope when you die, your family doesn’t have to be subjected to the same senseless ignorance as you have written.
