F*ck the Death Penalty...
I would much rather that the heinous murderer be condemned to life without parole in solitary confinement than get the death penalty. Now we have to have his increasingly ugly mug on our news over and over and over as the mandatory appeals go on and on and on. Not to mention all the money it will cost.
Someone as disgusting as Steven Hayes should go into prison never to be seen or heard from again. He should get his meals slid through a slot in his 15 cubic foot compound, with no tv, no radio no contact with another human being ever again. He should have the clothing he stood up in when he goes in and nothing else ever. He should have a windowless, black stall, with no daylight- only fluorescents on 24/7, no greenery, no flowers. No tv, no radio, no human voice or face or warmth ever again.
Make available at all times a fatal dose of his medicine, and let him do it himself, if he has the courage.
