I think all human life is sacred. It's just as wrong for someone to murder a person in their sixties as a 6 week old baby. So these prisoners don't condone the murder of someone under 18 but anyone over 18 is fair game? Not impressed. And according to the linked article, it was a fight---and probably not related to the fact that the dead man killed the child. It could have been some ridiculous reason why they were fighting.

Prison justice makes me laugh. The guy who beat this guy to death, presumably for beating his own kid, is also in there for a crime and if they were housed together, I could only guess a pretty bad one given the victim's crime. Just checked the article - yup, for assault.

I have no problem with an eye for an eye in theory but the prisoners attacking others for their crimes is just hypocritical. I mean, let's say the guy who beat him to death is in there for killing his girlfriend, hypothetically. This is really no worse than killing a baby, because murder is murder, yet here's some vigilante (or really prisoner) justice from someone not involved at all in the situation but is also a violent criminal himself, committing yet another violent crime in the name of the child killed, or in the name of a twisted sense of "justice." Mind-boggling.

But such are the minds of violent criminals I guess. No one ever said or assumed they are logical or smart or think things through.

Good. One less useless life for taxpayers to support. I hope it wasn't quick.

I do.

One violent loser killed another. Most likely it didn't have squat to do with the previous crimes of either one of them.

Quit romanticizing murder. Quit pretending that either of these violent losers had a shred of honor.



Agreed.

Just as Jeffrey Dahmer and Albert DiSalvo were killed in prison for reasons that had nothing to do with their commitment offenses, neither did this.

The dead guy was in for life so the taxpayers win.

Considering recidivism is higher among the violent offenders, the guy in for assault would have very likely reoffended and cost the court system additional to again commit to trial. This way now that he's committed a murder while incarcerated he gets life without all of that long term cost to the system so the taxpayers win once again.

A two fer.

Win, win. Always a good outcome.

Best justice, swift and appropriate. This cell mate should be released and his criminal record expunged.
