It is not that I support
the death penalty, it is that I support the family members getting whatever closure they want/need to be able to move on with their life. Personally I want the criminals in extreme cases to suffer as much as possible, and I think that is life with no parole. Death is a quick, easy way out and I think these types do not deserve that. People who are not murderers are forced to trudge through life, even when stricken with terrible diseases or what have you, why should these criminals not be forced to as well?
The way I see it, the woman said it made her feel better, was a weight lifted and she can now live a little bit easier. Good enough for me. These assholes stumbled in and destroyed her family, she did nothing wrong. The criminals in this case are slime through and through and do not warrant any kind of consideration whatsoever. Kill them, throw them in jail, whatever. Killing those pieces of garbage who would do nothing in this world but continually hurt and take from others, not any sort of loss. They knew damn well that Texas executes people like it's going out of style, they killed people and now they deal with the consequences of their actions and decisions, that's their bag of dicks to hold, nobody else's.
My focus is on the survivors, what would make them feel better? Want them in jail? Want them dead? What do you want?
The Captain, whatever, he had a job and sometimes elements of a job fuck with you. he quit when it got to be too much. That's life.
Great flick, we sat up talking about it for an hour.
