Too much sympathy for the criminal instead of the victim

February 14, 2011

The article "A slow death" (Feb. 13) explains that executions in Maryland are on hold again because a lethal injection drug is no longer being manufactured. I have a solution to this "problem." While our "justice system" seems to protect the criminal and not the victim and their family, a reasonable and common sense end of life for the criminal would be to let them die in the same way they killed their victims. This way could bring some closure for the victims' family, and the taxpayers of Maryland would not have to spend money keeping the ruthless criminals alive.
