just a few points.
I am not the original author, brought this to the forum because I wanted to see what the reaction would be on CM.
There are so many of you bashing this from the assumption that this is Christian post. I AM a Christian, but there is no evidence or implication as to the belief system of the child or his family. I made no editorial commentary regarding faith.
I am not an enthusiastic adovcate of the death penalty, but I would never say never. If I were on a death penalty jury, there is a possiblitiy that I would vote for death, but it would have to be a huge hurdle to jump for me to do that. I am not implying the killer of this child should be on death row. I was not in the court room.
In general I keep my political opinions to myself unless I see something outrageous. I don't make a secret of my faith and will defend it all day long. I am not implying this murderer, (I call him that because he was convicted) is less than or better than another and I am sure there is a bad back story of his life, but nothing excuses his actions.
