    • Are you saying they should’ve killed him too??? Is this the message you want to send out?? I mean I understand what he did was beyond terrible however he have to accountable for his actions. Killing him will be the easy way out. That’s more then likely what he wanted. It won’t change the fact that he took 2 lives. Killing him won’t change what he did,and it sure won’t punish him. Stop the violence is what we should be pray and hoping for
