Tell me why we simply don't kill this person as a genuine menace to society?
Tell me why he should be allowed to live? He should be butchered horribly where he stands. But when most "regular people" lack the moral fiber to help an old man on a train, why should we expect them to have the courage to dispatch the worst elements among us?
Haven't we learned from the case of Jessica Lunsford? Or from the case of the little girl who was repeatedly molested over a four-year period? Her rapist, and remember this name Mark Hulett in case he lives in your town, was originally sentenced to 60 days, and the public outrage caused the judge to up it to 3-10 years. Hulett was scheduled for release this month. Who wants to bet he'll rape again, no matter how much the government "supervise" him? Sex offender registration didn't save Jessica Lunsford, now did it?
