Frankly, Jim, this is a problem with the law that needs to be changed. There's too much theology and superstition in US jurisprudence. The idea that any man can kill a young woman, go to prison for "life," and be released on good behavior after 7 or so years, puts the lawmakers in league with the murderers. What does it say to the families of victims? That the murderer of your relative is more important than his victims. That he's going to do some valuable thing that makes his freedom significant to society. That his life is more important than theose he took. The US judiciary is not competent to deal with these types of criminals. Citizens groups of Regulators or Vigilance Committees would best dispense with these people. I don't suggest vengence. I suggest practical extermination. Such people are a scourge in any society in which they manifest. Don't tell me it's not a deterrent. Ted Bundy hasn't killed anyone in years.
