I commented on this yesterday but for some reason it didn't get posted. I guess because I said what most everyone is feeling. Everyone knows he did it, he should get the death penalty and enough is enough. If we are supposed to support him the rest of his life in prison then we need to send him to where ever his comrades are and let them take care of him. His money should be cut off and his savings confiscated to pay for this farce everyone is calling a trial.

And I foolishly thought I would live to see the end of this mess. It is no longer a horse and pony show. It is an ackjass and jassack show.
