I'd rather he be forced to live with it till the end of his natural life. Supermax prison would be superb.

It seems to me at this point you're just race baiting.

Im not race baiting - just pointing out the double standard in the media. If a white person kills 7+ black people it IS assumed that it is a possible hate crime at that very moment. If a black person does the same crime in reverse, its a "possible domestic issue" and the word hate crime is not even on the radar.

Besides that, it could be a hate crime or it could not be one. What is clear though is this man should have been in jail years ago...His criminal record spans 20 years and he has been arrested dozens of times. The system failed in Michigan for sure as far as this guy goes.

Yes, you were race baiting. Most of the guy's victims were either related to him or had relationships with him. I live within two miles of where he broke into the house and took hostages, after chase on the expressways and his earlier killings. He's dead now. Shot himself in the head. Near the end, he was going back and forth between threatening to kill the hostages and begging the snipers to kill him. He was bi-polar and off his medications and had a long history of trouble with the law. This all started around 3 and just a few minutes ago ended when the hostages where taking to the hospital for evaluation. It's been on our local news channels all day long, non-stop. Race had nothing to do with it. His wife and child were two of the victims. Another child was also killed. In addition to the 7 dead, two others were shot but not seriously.
