No sympathy for murderer

January 17, 2014

Considering the execution of Dennis McGuire: Do you suppose that Joy Stewart, the 22-year-old pregnant woman that he brutally raped and then stabbed to death suffered undeserved terror and pain?

I would imagine the terror she suffered was times two, do to the fact that she was pregnant. As a mother myself, I know that under such circumstances, trying to protect your child is paramount. And the point when she realized she and her child were going to die must have been unimaginable.

I feel no pity for him, but if he wanted it quick, well, a properly placed bullet to the brain would have taken care of that!
