    These two assholes better get the death penalty, there was no reason for the family to get killed as they complied with everything these people asked.

    I say they need to forego a trail and just hang them. Just another example of why we need to start more executions. Might start getting these peoples attention

    I doubt you'd be saying that if the victims turned out to be liberal Democrats. :rolleyes:

    The only ignorant morons that think only those that believe in their politics are covered by the law would be the likes of you.

    I don't see him denying it.

    You just earned yourself a report, besides.

    The hell I wouldn't. I think anyone that murder's, rapes or molests another human being no matter what their religion, eth. or political background should be put to death. Just because they are Liberal doesn't mean that people who harm them should't be brought to justice. Before you make statements you should find out how someone feels on a particular issue.

    Story Highlights

    State to examine policies in light of charges against paroled burglars
    3 members of Connecticut family die after home invasion, fire
    Neither of the accused have a record of violent crime
    Accused each have more than 20 prior burglaries on their records

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/07/25/home.invasionb.ap/index.html

    I don't get it. Arn't people on Parole not allowed to associate with eachother? Obviously they planned this so they had to spend time together.

    Over 20 burglaries each, they are obviously habitual offenders and should have never been Paroled. We need better monitoring, I am all for house arrest for anyone on Parole.

    If this Prosecutor doesn't seek the Death Penalty he should be removed from office. Sexual Assult, torture and murder, if this doesn't qualify for the Death Penalty what does? Obviously CT has a weak stance on crime. What a horrible way to die. The two daughters died of smoke inhalation, how horrible. Those two got the money, the family did everything that was asked of them, there was no reason for them to suffer and die the way they did.

    Maybe a petition could be circulated encouraging the Prosecutor to pursue the Death Penalty?

    I really feel sorry for the Doctor that is still alive. He will have to live with the loss and the regret of not being able to do anything to save his family for the rest of his life.

    This is the first I've heard of Edward, and yes, he's very much mistaken about what most people think.

    Now if a conservative Republican saw a woman stabbed and lying on the floor of a market, they'd probably just assume it was her own damned fault for being slutty and/or poor. :evil:
