    No offense, but why are we still talking about this? It's old news by now. So many more crimes have been committed since this was posted. Shouldn't we be talking about those?

    I mean, this happened 4 months ago...

    Ah, well. If there's something meaningful to be said about this that hasn't been said yet, go ahead and say it. I guess I just don't get the appeal.

    Ah, don't worry. I've done that myself.

    The only reason I noticed was because I remember posting in the thread when it was new.

If I steal your tv, I should repay you or buy you another tv. You can't resurrect the dead. Killing another person to avenge the death of the first makes no sense. It's a perverse illusion of justice; you are pacified for your loss, you get a consolation prize....still, that child is dead. The only way to reap any benefit from the situation is to try to understand people capable of doing such heinous things to others. Study them. Understand their motivations. Use them as guinea pigs in a lab.

    Killing Ted Bundy was a waste of a fantastic psychopathic case study. As neuroscience progresses, perhaps certain brain abnormalities would have been revealed. This guy should be sent to jail for life and studied.
    Spot the hell on, IMO.

    But... but...what if people just want to discuss this particular one? That should be okay...I mean, there isn't a time limit on how relevant a crime is for discussion.

    ... Did it sound like I was giving an apology?

    Yeah, they don't let us talk much around here - it's like totalitarian at typology.

    I would lease him out to a S&M brothel in Thailand, and send the proceeds to the mother. No need for U.S. taxpayers to be burdened by pieces of shit like this.
