But guess what? It's not just the murder of old ladies or children that are heinous acts. Anyone who is murdered suffers at the hands of a murderer. There's no "special category" of victims.

And people who think that there is make me sick.
I never said murder wasn't heinous. Not sure why you are saying this.

If I make you sick because I see children as special then so be it. However, please make no mistake, in no way have I excused ANYbody that murders. In all actuality, the old lady you reference is in many ways, nearly as helpless as a child in fending off an attacker so murder of the elderly is right up there with kids. All murder is wrong obviously, but there is a special place in hell for murders committed against helpless victims...like the infant in this situation.

I'm a mother of a young child. As a mother, nothing makes me angrier than despicable scum who deliberately harm children too helpless to fight back! These children are often killed by the very people who should be protecting them!

I'm not debating this further. It's how I feel and I certainly don't expect all others to feel the same way.

A fact check on the words of Dahmer's killer says otherwise. Having said that, I was all for what happened to the dahmer POS and I am happy the yet another POS has gotten the death penalty.

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.
Actually you are incorrect. There are certain crimes that inmates, even those in for murder, take issues with and that is pedophilia, and beating kids. Inmates that are lifers have nothing to lose and will take out another inmate that has these charges. Just sayin...

IMO, he got what he deserved.

Sounds like a bad idea, right? Well, it was.

One day, there was a riot. She was trapped in her location with 20 inmates. About half wanted to rape her and were openly discussing it. The other half, who were patients of hers and loved her, wouldn't allow it and they actually got into a physical altercation over it.

In the end, she wasn't raped and she quit the next day.

Some prisoners are actually good people, it seems.
Not only are they good people, a lot of them are actually innocent. Only about 5% of prison inmates ever had a trial. The rest were intimidated into taking a plea bargain.

When I was in the military, I spent a lot of time around inmates and watching court martials.

At least in this situation, I can assure you that they had fair trials and were, in fact, guilty of their crimes.
