Sick Killer Gets Death

"For the temporary gratification of his lust, the defendant destroyed an entire family's future," the judge said. "He has forfeited his right to live."

Those words were handed down after Alejandro Avila was sentenced to death for the brutal sexual assault and death of Samantha Runnion, a sweet 5 year old girl who was playing innocently and grabbed from her front yard kicking and screaming. Her nude body was found the following day in the mountains about 50 miles away.

"I know she looked at you with those amazing brown eyes and you still wanted to kill her," Erin Runnion tearily told Alejandro Avila.

Avila, sitting motionless and looking away, did not appear to be moved by Mrs. Runnion's outrage and grief.


Now if he was in Canada, Avila would get a lifetime award to club Fed - free food, free education, free first class air and hotel, free lawyers, and no fear of death by execution.

We need to bring back the death penalty for child killers and cop killers - period.

No, he'd get maybe 12 years and a new identity.

Seen anyone in the news lately? Me neither, she's in the wind, I'm sure.

The problem is that even with the death penalty, the victim's families never get satisfaction. Murder is a crime that hands out sorrow with no satisfaction of justice being done.

Right on!
Child and cop killers have it coming.

A paraphrase: Regarding the execution of a murderer...

Liberal (on Politically Incorrect) - "The death penalty isn't a deterent"

Ann Coulter - "It deterred him..."
