What's the purpose of the electric chair? Does that somehow act as a deterrent to a person that's completely insane?
Reached by phone Tuesday, Dela Rosa's family members declined to comment. Relatives of Angelyn's father in Falls Church also declined to comment by phone.
No one answered the door at Dela Rosa's home or at Angelyn's on Tuesday.
Deterrence is just one goal of capital punishment. Revenge and removal from society are two others. Just because she's crazy doesn't mean we need her sucking up our air any more than if she's evil.
Really? On top of dealing with an unimaginable tragedy, this family is subjected harassment from mulitple media sources in an effort to gain comments for the story? What a self serving act, and I will completely dismiss any claims involving helping the family. This is simply reporters trying to scoop others for the juicy details of this story. Hey media, THIS is why so many Americans despise and distrust you.
Don't blame the media for this. We created the media. It exists to serve society's perverted interests. You think they would push stories like this if it wasn't what the public wants? Ratings tell the story. That evil media. They're just giving all of us what we want. Don't feed the beast then complain when it bites your hand.
So far in this thread, you're okay with media knocking on the parents' door, okay with frying a mentally-ill grandmother, and justifying capital punishment as a method of revenge.
EDIT: I forgot extermination of crazy people in general. Somehow I missed that one. My apologies.
