Good for the state of Texas! We need to be executing these murderers. Their lives are worth just as much as their victims, so executing them will give much needed restitution. Thank you Lord, the death penalty is still the law of the land. "For whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed." – Genesis 9
