The UN, Britain, and a long list of other countries don't support the death penalty.
It is cases like this that make me support the death penalty.
When you have a person this evil, manipulative, and hateful (note: I could be talking about Timothy McVeigh, John Allen Muhammad, or Saddam), there is no good recourse but to remove them from the earth.
