It's hard on the families of the victim also....they want justice....and time after time they too have had to wait for that justice....for her to get out after 10 years is not fair....for him to die is that fair? When our friends or family commits crimes they were not thinking of us at the time they had their own agenda...right or wrong...they have put themselves in that situation....I don't think another death will fix our problems, however it will satisfy a desire in many people.
