  • If you copy and paste the link, the story on Gray is available. Also, if you need more info. than what is provided in the article, I'd suggest Googling his name.

  • I asked because I'm a Conservative, but I really don't know where I stand on the death penalty. (I really don't care about whether or not he is former military....) A part of me thinks that the death penalty is an antiquated form of punishment. A part of me wonders how many people have been or will be executed that haven't committed a proportionate crime. Then there's the part of me that reads about heinous crimes--especially of children--and not only do I think these perpetrators should lose their lives, but I think they should be tortured in the very way they tortured their victims.

  • the death penalty is tricky for me as well. I'm all for it when the evidence is strong specially if it consist of DNA analysis. I have no problems with executing these monsters as long as we have overwhelming proof of their guilt.

  • The tragic cases I covered as a crime reporter changed my mind about the death penalty. I used to be anti-death penalty because it is statistically shown to be no deterrent to murder. But sitting in courtrooms hearing horrendous testimony about brutal murders and sitting in the courthouse hallways talking with the families of the victims and the families of the accused persuaded me that sometimes - but not every time - the death penalty is completely appropriate.
