There but for the grace of God....
I vote for lethal injection.
I don't know what this line from the story makes me feal more. Pure rage or just break down and cry.Quote:
Her body was found in a shallow hole, encased in two black plastic trash bags. She had been buried alive and suffocated, and was found clutching a purple stuffed dolphin. Two fingers poked through the top of the bags.
The purple stuffed dolphin is what got me for some reason. Just so sad thinking what that little girl went through. :(
State of Florida got their justice. Jessica is dead and buried and that is an extremely sad fact that didn't change one bit based on the outcome of a trial.
The sole purpose of what was going on should have been to make sure the he doesn't get an opportunity to do it again to someone else.
The system let down this girl. This loser had been nailed before for this sort of behavior and let go on his merry way.
"There but for the grace of god go I"- based on your response, I take your post to mean that but for the grace of God you could be in that killer's shoes?
If that were your daughter, murdered in such a cruel and torturous fashion, would you be saying what you're saying?
If that quote should be used in any sort of context in this situation it's that anyone with a sister or a daughter or a little boy, but for the grace of God, could be in the same, terrifying, hell-on-earth faced by that little girl and now being lived by her parents and family on a daily basis, for the rest of their lives.
Some people believe that justice is never served by the execution of another human being.
That may be, but saying "but for the grace of God," in the context implied by FCB is quite disingenuous IMO.
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, and a life for a life. It's just that simple. If it were my daughter he would have never made it to trial.
