I don’t necessarily believe in capital punishment. I do believe in equal punishment. I look at this case, and have an easy time saying that she deserves the absolute highest punitive measure employed within our punitive system. That monster right there is as sick, violent and sociopathic as anyone.
More importantly, the number one reason for punitive measures should ALWAYS be the prevention of further crimes. Does the punitive measure being employed do anything to prevent future acts of the crime? This may be the rare case of capital punishment being very effective in dissuading future murders of this kind. It is getting some headlines,(way more than her murdering him ever got) and women have gotten used to the status quo in America, where they are allowed to murder us.
