    He needs to be put in prison and make him suffer with A/C , cable tv, 3 meals a day, his own room. Boy that will teach him. You liberals don't think this is to harsh I hope. I would not want to upset anyone.

    Hey Piene2. Should we outlay knives now? How will you cut your steak now? Last week one brother killed his other brother with a hammer. Should we outlay hammers too? How will you ever build a house? So many things to ban and so little time before the next person is killed with a baseball bat. OOPS...there is something else we must ban.
