- They should let him out when he's 50 or so. I sure as hell wouldn't like to be locked up forever for something I did as a kid. Oh, and God doesn't exist, CLIFF. (Posted on October 24, 2007, 8:55 am Someone)
- Served his time? He was sentenced to 111 years. There is nothing wrong with the system following the sentencing guidelines. As far as him being a poor kid, he murdered 4 people and wounded 25 others, he deserves to be right where he is, sitting out his sentence and looking for forgiveness from God and the people whose lives he affected.
