Murderer’s Victim Suffered Greatly, Too

Editor, News-Register:

Recently there have been several stories bemoaning the “horrible” execution of a death row prisoner in Ohio. His suffering and moans were emphasized in the press. Nowhere was the suffering of the pregnant mother mentioned. The prisoner was aware of why he was to die. The victim was not afford the same consideration.

Although we are not supposed to be savages, there have been times, such as this, that I wish the offender could be executed in the same way as the victim.

After all, turnabout is fair play.
