Sad as it is, just fewer obama-lovers to be gaga over that piece of human excrement.

Get an abortion, kill an innocent person-to-be, fine. Leave a helpless child to die, so sorry, I'm aRead More woman, not my fault.

Yeah you get ripped for looking stupid and fat if you do something like this because people want to identify him with something ugly. We as a society have to have stern consequences for people like this....an eye for an eye...put them in a hot car and air it on Saturday night!

Once his victim confirms his story I say let him out. But not before then.

"Long since paid the price"? Is the victim still dead? Then he has not paid in full. GoodRead More call on the judge's part. Let this piece of trash die in prison.
Scott Adams July 10, 2014 at 01:36 pm
I am in complete agreement with the U.S. Supreme Court and the Eighth Amendment: the punishmentRead More should fit the crime and Mr. Echoles committed the ultimate crime. 25 years in prison does not equate to "paid the price." He was also a convicted junkie. With a gun. Those wanting clemency really think he didn't know it was wrong to sell/do drugs and shoot people dead .....with a gun he illegally had? Let him do his "good works" right where he is. In prison. Flood our schools with reprints of this story....and our comments....maybe it'll deter young impressionables that acting as Mr. Echols did is inhumane and simply not forgivable.

The thing I find interesting is women are dead set against people that smoke but the major majorityRead More of them drink regularly. I suppose they justify it because booze won't give them lung cancer. So who cares about liver cancer, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, kidney failure, abdominal and bowel cancer and a permanent lose of thousands of brain cells with each drink. I have yet to see one report of a driver under the influence of nicotine killing anyone while driving. So heres lookin at ya drink up and put that cigarette out before ya kill somebody with second hand smoke and just use a car.

Valeria, your experience is somewhat different from mine. I had a very dear friend commit suicideRead More because all that could be done, at the end, was to sit in bed on major and I mean major drugs to control the pain.They decided for themselves before they where totally incapacitated to end it. Watching that suffering they went through convinced me that the end of a life is a personal choice that belongs to the person who is living that life and no one else on earth.
cookiepro2 July 10, 2014 at 12:15 am
For one who has a family member just diagnosed as terminal (many problems par for the course for aRead More 92 year old) if we had such a law permitting assisted suicide, I'd say proceed with caution based on our experience of the last couple days. Loved one requested the "plug pulled" many times (actually no plugs or machines simply occasional respiratory mask as breathing aid) but changed mind yesterday, and is entering hospice care. He is in no pain (yet), condition has actually improved and has had the opportunity for many family members to come and visit. I sense a winding up of a life well-lived, and the opportunity for many "I love you's". This would have been missed if his request had been immediately jumped upon and was legal. Don't know what the next few weeks will bring, there may be a time when the suffering will be great and wish for euthanasia, but glad at least of the past couple days.
Bill July 10, 2014 at 08:41 am
Euthanasia is a means of respecting the sanctity and quality of life while providing an individualRead More the choice to die with grace and dignity. It is a very personal choice, but a choice that an individual should legally be permitted to make - provided of course, there is a protocol established. Whether or not to pursue euthanasia should not be a decision that could be made on a whim, when the subject is experiencing a low point.

RON Ostrodamus July 8, 2014 at 01:06 pm
What is called "palliative" of "comfort" care is for the most part also a myth.Read More Pain killing drugs themselves often have horrible side effects including horrific dreams and then comes the time they simply do not work and who is there to suction out your throat when you cannot communicate that you are choking on your own secretions? This eventually results in what is called the "death rattle" a horrible term that is still used today by both nurses and doctors. A cardiologist once told me after I brought in a friend of mine to Beaumont that after the third rattle there is little hope, and it is only recently that some kind doctors are informing people that CPR on the elderly invariably breaks the ribs and causes pain in a knowingly futile effort which only prolongs the dying process.

misplaced patriotism and summarily killing masses on the orders of an egomaniac commander who wouldRead More not carry out the ridiculous mission without the questioning of the reasonableness of the mission, can ,and has led to the robotic knee jerk reaction to mindlessly commit global genocide by non thinking trained mercenaries who feel they can KILL their way into problem solving. then come home and turn on family and friends and community due to the vaccines , and brain damage and residue of the depleted uranium weapons they may use to dump an a sovereign country through fake FEAR AND LIES FROM COMMAND. IT could happen . then they may be too morally damaged to remember job #1 to protect the borders as originally assigned . then just may be that there may not be a job , home , or respect from others except their own fellow mercenaries . then tun on community free speech and true nationalism and safety and mutual community respect . It could happen . It could even RUIN the economic engine of the country and give world power to global bankers who could exploit realtars , home buyers , owners and construction industry and we would not be in a position to afford 44 million invaders.
