Letter: Death penalty? Absolutely!
Re “End the death penalty” (Monitor letter, Dec. 3):
I am so sick of these bleeding-heart liberals who are absolutely opposed to the death penalty, saying they cannot see any good coming from taking a killer’s life. Well, I can. For one thing, these scum will not be looking at computers or TV or going to the library to see how they can go to court time after time to fight for their rights when they thought nothing of taking away the life and rights of another human being.
Do the liberals give one thought to the victims of these killers?
Now we have the killer Michael Addison, who murdered Officer Michael Briggs, pleading to the Supreme Court, saying it isn’t fair to take his life and he didn’t get a fair trial. That is the biggest crock of you-know-what I ever heard. We know he had every intention of pulling that trigger to kill Briggs, leaving behind a wife and two sons. The sad part is we are all paying for all this with our tax money!
The Bible does say “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” and I say “a life for a life.” I am so tired of the victims being shunted aside and forgotten. The killers are given more rights than you and I have. Yes, I do think we need the death penalty.
