If he had enough of a brain to kill someone, he had enough of one to be punished for it.
The world is better off without this murderer.
The death sentence is among other things, an exercise in futility.
It solves nothing, it heals nothing, it satisfies vengeance which many confuse for justice, it reconciles nothing, is irreversible, and is unjust.
The recidivism rate is zero, though.
Many in prison and leading a life of crime are missing part of their brain.
>>>His case drew extra attention because of his brain injury, the result of a 1972 sawmill accident that forced doctors to remove one-fifth of his frontal lobe<<<
So, prior to 1972 he was a Conservative, and after 1972 he was a Liberal?
Thanks to our ridicules judicial appeals system, this arsehole lived to the ripe old age of 74, when he should have been executed many years ago.
I spend very little time worrying about criminals that have been executed. It occupies number 2,343 on my concern list.
All better now!
That's got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever read. In fact, I'm officially astonished. With one single statement you've managed to throw out the entirety of Western Civilization. Every last bit of it. I wouldn't have thought it possible, even on a bet, but there it is - you did it.
You are aware, aren't you that God decreed that "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." Genesis 9:6?
I noticed that you use God in your tagline. Are you suggesting that God's decreed punishment for murder "solves nothing, it heals nothing, it satisfies vengeance which many confuse for justice, it reconciles nothing, is irreversible, and is unjust."?
Do you believe that you are more wise, compassionate and holy than God?
“it satisfies vengeance”
Do you have a thing against vengeance?
A very recent study, most comprehensive ever done on the death penalty, concluded that for every murderer executed, ten people were spared being murdered.

Do you think Obama id G-d?
Where did that come from?
“Missouri had argued that medical experts found Clayton understood why he was being executed and that meant he was competent to face the needle.”
He was competent. He knew what he did and that it was wrong. What’s the problem here?
There is a reason why people who are actively pro-abortion are almost universally against the death penalty. Do you know the reason?
