Md. death penalty: What happened to an eye for an eye?

February 14, 2011

In response to the article in today's newspaper ("A slow death," Feb. 13), I hope that Gov. Martin O'Malley never has to experience having a loved one brutally murdered and watch as justice system does nothing to punish the monster who killed them. How much does our country pay to keep an individual on death row year after year? Why should they receive three meals a day when there are starving, homeless people who have nothing? I know as a humane nation we must treat the human race in a humane way, but how about how the murder victims were treated? What ever happened to an eye for an eye? Crimes against children, the elderly and animals have to be addressed. Give the small, innocent and weak a voice and start giving punishment to those who deserve punishment!
