An Arizona man executed suffers for hours longer than his victim. That seems to be an assumption. Are we forgetting about the victim?

Most critics of the death penalty don’t seem to think about the victim, and can only see one side. Were they so old they would have died anyway? Would the killing stop if they were given a life sentence? By the way, they will get out in about seven years.

A very short time ago a man raped and beat a woman within an inch of her life and then buried her alive. Is this the person you would like to put up at the Hilton? For some this is better than living on the streets, and certainly more benefits. No more searching for your next meal, medical couldn’t be better, just holler and get representation from the best lawyers, laundry done — makes you homesick just thinking about it.

If you’re the anti-law enforcement governor of California or our Attorney General Harris, they won’t be incarcerated for very long in my opinion. It seems to me politicians and federal judges contribute greatly to the increase in crime. Nobody seems to know who is crossing our borders. For those who do and become U.S. citizens need to be put on probation for 10 years if they commit a felony.
