We're talking about MURDER... the malicious taking of another person's life. Not stealing a Snickers Bar from the local 7/11. No one is advocating cutting of anyone's anything.

Well registerthis, you pretty much described John Couey, you just left out the burying the victim alive part.
Death for someone who has gone to the lows that this guy went to is a heckuva lot more humane than what you have suggested. He's getting off easy, REAL easy. He doesn't have to die a slow death. He goes to sleep, bye bye. End of story. It was a choice he made when he took that kids life.
If the guy deserves to be treated like any other criminal, throw him into prision and lets see what happens to him. But nope, we'll have to pay to protect him the rest of his life.
The fact that he couldn't survive in that situation speaks volumes. Even those in prison don't want to be on the same Earth with scum like that. Why in the heck would anyone outside the prison walls want to be?
It's time to take this to the peanut gallery as I think it has crossed the threshold into political-territory.
But in all seriousness, thank you for keeping this thread civil.

What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
