I just read this story about how the judge has thrown out the confession of the worthless piece of human debris who raped and murdered Jessica Lunsford, because he supposedly asked for a lawyer, but wasn’t given one. I’m very angry right now.
Here’s the rub. The guy was picked up. He told the cops what he’d done, how he did it, and where to find her body. The cops found everything, just as he said. This is one of those cases where a trial should not even be an option. He confessed. He told them everything. They verified the facts. At that point, he should have been taken out behind the police station and shot. Or, as my friend just suggested, taken to the public square and shot. Or put in a cell where he could watch a gallows being built, just for him. When a perp confesses, and the details match, that should be it. Game. Set. Match. This animal doesn’t deserve to continue drawing breath after what he did to that little girl.
