    You are absolutely entitled to your opinion, too - I'm honestly not too concerned about if people agree with me or not. I respect your ideas, though. :smile:

    This is how I look at it. If this person was just a "person of interest," it's not like anything is known to be certain at this point of his guilt. Too much of a gray area.

    They got their man. The "person of interest" is just being politically correct for the time being. It's over....I'm confident in that.

    Moral of the story?

    Don't sexually assault people.

    I agree w/your views on the death penalty, but I think if this guy drew his gun when the cops came, he wasn't exactly innocent... The cops responded the only way they really could and should have. If this "person of interest" wasn't highly involved w/what was going on, then why would they have pulled that gun? Doesn't make sense to me that someone who was totally innocent would react that way.

    I agree. What else exactly should the police be doing when the guy pulls a gun?

    You pull a gun on officers, you deserve to be shot on the spot.

    I'd rather he lived a lifetime and have men try to have sex with him somewhere very uncomfortable everyday, like in the back of a Volkswagon.

    A point I was going to address myself. I'm not sure who made the comment, but I got the impression that someone in this thread wants to completely get rid of trials. Someone might be guilty? Let's just kill 'em and save the taxpayers some money. Beautiful logic. :jimlad::jimlad::jimlad:

    I agree with that. Hopefully everything happened the way the police say it did.

    I don't think he was taking issue w/what happened. There have been people in this thread who have insinuated just killing criminals is better than having trials. That's all.

    This one time, my cousin Walter got a cat stuck up his ***...

    I digress. I too can only imagine what would have happened to this guy in prison... A more severe punishment than what he got, imo.

    Getting killed or not, rapists never have an easy time in prison. They make a lot of "close" friends from other male inmates and then get beat/shanked to death. Sometimes that's a better (more ideal punishment, in my eyes) than getting shot by the police. But, either way, thank God he won't be raping anymore people.

    To be clear - I'm not faulting the cops at all. If they felt at all threatened they have the right to protect themselves. And, most importantly, this guy is off the street.

    This is a little bit of a weird thing to say, but is anyone else a little bit proud of the "normal" criminals who take care of the real sickos while in prison? Maybe proud isn't the right word, but they have their own version of justice for the child molesters, rapists, etc.
