It is unlikely he will serve the entire sentence.

Dude has previous felonies, I think 200 years is about the minimum amount of time for him to serve.

Call me a softy, but I think 150 years would have been plenty. With him eligible for parole at 130 years.

I guess the thing I'm getting at is this: I just think "200 years" is a bit arbitrary. Someone just mentioned the comparison of costs, with a death penalty conviction being 17+ mil, and a life in prison term being around 500k.

Okay, that's a big disparity. Life in prison it is... But why not just say, "Mr. Criminal, you will stay in prison until you're dead." Why, "200 years"? Just seems silly to me. Maybe just because they have to actually use a number...

I most vehemently disagree! These people are NOT worthless!

There are hundreds of thousands of people who need kidneys, lungs, corneas, hearts, etc.

The scumgag got what he deserved. Its not like he was a choir boy who stole from the donation plate. From the article.

That's funny right there. I don't care who you are.

Unless someone is caught literally red handed, I am not in favor of the death penalty. There have been too many wrongful convictions and the cost of a death penalty trial and subsequent appeals is staggering. However I am in favor of bringing back oared galleys. Seriously an incarcerated criminal does not deserve luxuries and should have to work for privileges. They might just learn a sense of value.
Do not construe this post to mean I would not shoot someone threatening my family or myself. That would be pretty red handed.
