Coddling murderers is cruel to victims' families

In response to Michael Dresser's recent front page article ("Death row: Should they die for their crimes?," Feb. 10) it shows just how desperate, devious, disillusioned, and devoted The Sun, liberal journalists like Mr. Dresser and the rest of the Gov. Martin O'Malley-loving, liberal left-wing, drive-by media are when it comes to protecting, pacifying and proficiently making these murdering scum of the earth animals out to be "human" just like us.

As for Mr. Dresser, he is well-known for his far-left-leaning liberal bias in his reporting on transportation, education and Maryland's liberal traffic laws. So it doesn't come as a surprise to anyone with common sense that this "nonsense" article was in line with his and the newspaper's bleeding heart liberal idiocy and ideology.

These animals are a waste of taxpayer money. Meanwhile, the families and loved ones of the innocent victims are left with nothing but heartache, sorrow and no form of closure or justice. Also, they receive no repayment for the loss of life of the victim who was murdered by these animals from them or their families in restitution.

Here's what happens when these animals receive life without parole. First, the sentence eventually gets reduced with good behavior. They get "three hots and a cot" — a bed and three meals a day as well as a chance to earn a GED. There's cable and satellite television (to learn how to murder in prison and get away with it, perhaps), and a chance to learn a trade other than murder.

There are workouts in the prison gym (the added strength will help them become more proficient at murder), free health care, free access to an attorney to help them with their rights as murderers, perhaps get a single room if they are determined to be a danger to the other animals, and finally, to have friends like Governor O'Malley and the other liberal Democrats showing them "compassion" and standing up for their "cause."

So there you have it, Should they die for their crimes? Yes, just let the those who have lost loved ones know when they get the "cruel and inhuman lethal injection" mixture set to the correct dose so they can be there when it's time to witness these animals die.
