  1. the only evil is of those who carry out this act yes my uncle may have committed a crime but my family has forgiving him and who are you or anybody else to judge him for actions. None of you are God so why continue to think that you are man can not judge man. and yes he took lives but that is his judgment and those who followed in the act of leathal injection just took a life… so dont be so quick to think that it is right. I am against of killing those who have killed because you are just completing the same act that they did but you are calling it justice because of a man made law. for that i say My Uncle I love you and may you be at rest.

    1. This nation is a nation of laws and the current law of the land in some states is that if you unlawfully take a life (murdrer), one of the penalities is that the State may execute you. Your uncle’s case went through the court system and he was convicted and received the death sentence. His appeals went through the courts and so, he had his “day in court”. He spent more time on death row than some of his victims spent on this earth. He got what he deserved.

    2. Shut up stupid. Your coward uncle kill innocent children he deserved to die. He did all this for a safe that was not his, and he went into over kill for it. No one deserves to die by the hands of an evil, selfish, disgusting person like your uncle. My hat goes off to your family for asking for his life, cause if it was my children, i would as that you start the procedure, stop it bring him back to life, and then do it all over again. So i could be sure that he felt the pain. These people are sorry for taking other lives, and if you so worried about the death penalty. You wait until you have kids and someone kills your whole family then speak again. We live in a nation that says there are rules and when broken there is punishment, so he got what he deserved. JUSTICE WAS SERVED!I guess stupidity runs in this family.

  2. The true victims are gone. Unable to speak for themselves. With that being said, he died just as he was suppose to die. Justice was served!! If you kill someone that is helpless, you should man up and accept responsibility for your actions. Even if that means death. At least he knew when his day was going to end those kids didn’t have that chance!!
