To Stefan. What kind of a decent human being rapes, disembowels and murders people in a cold blooded manner? What do you suggest then as a solution?

Only for brutal rape, and murder. Being locked up in prison is far worse.

Hainess crime is out of control cause of no death penalty, it must be brought back, maybe it will help and stop this insanity.
