Ok. let me get this straight all of yall are sitin here being complete jugmental pricks about a man that you dont even know. siting here saying he deserves to die. well lets stop and think about all the things you do in your life. a good portion of it in other cultures might actually think the things you do are crimes and that you should deserve death. another thing. you dont even know this man. you dont know what he is going through, you dont know what kind of life he has had. you ever think that he might have been pushed into doing his crime for unknown reasons. ever think that?? no cause all you care about is condeming someone you dont even know and proubly making yourself feel better. get a life and actually start caring about things that actually matter. like a young man killing his girlfriend and her parents but only geting a small sentence. or people starving in africa while you drive up to a fast food resteraunt and ingorge yourself. honestly people this happend like a year and a half ago. enough is enough ok. he is paying for his crimes and thats all you need to know. be happy with that. and you guys missed a very key information about this guy. HE IS THE ONE THAT TURNEd HIMSELF AND THE OTHERS IN. if it hadnt been for this man that your talking crap about and saying he should die and crap then. he and the other men might still be killing cats. but he knew it was wrong and stoped it. so hush your unknowing stupid mouths. gah its like people arnt happy inless they are causing some kind of conflict on someone. so know all this and take it into consideration. what would you do in his place?? would you want people constantly being rude and buging the crap out of you no. those of you that are christiann i am deeply ashamed of you and you need to check yourselves.
good day and God bless

OK, already. Who here ever said we don't care about ALL the horrible atrocities going on in our world? Most of us grieve every day for the poor and exploited humans and do whatever we can here to help. It is so true most eat at the fast food restaurants and we have many other luxuries in the USA. This is just another judicial screw up we're talking about here. I DON'T CARE what his life was like. If I used my past life as an excuse, I would be hell on earth! That is the all inclusive excuse humans use for actually taking on their sick actions against living beings. If he was "pushed" into doing such a disgusting crime then he obviously needs to grow some b!ll's! If someone told you jump off a cliff, would you do it??!!! Oh, he turned himself in - good for him. Maybe his maker will take that into consideration when he meets that maker. You do the crime, you should pay the time. Plain and simple. That's part of the problem with our judicial system. The plea bargaining, payoffs, and pardoning criminals are a disgrace. This guy eventually skipped out on his time. That looks like he didn't feel any guilt, he just wanted to be able to plea bargain which is usually the reason for turning yourself in. It is a blessing on the other hand he stopped the killing, and many are thankful for that, including myself. That still doesn't excuse him for torture or doing a great amount time.
