Premeditated murder is considered one of the highest crimes. I can think of no murder more premeditated than a state sanctioned execution. If killing is wrong, then killing is wrong in all instances. The death penalty is shown not to be a deterrant to crime, and costs more than a life sentence. The death penalty should be abolished for these reasons. And if revenge is your thing, I can think of no better punishment than a life in prison with no chance of parole. After all, once you’ve killed the criminal they suffer no more.

I have no doubt that this woman committed this horrific crime. I also have little doubt that by any definition she is insane.

While society has the right to take her life in this case, the Governor stepping in and showing compassion by commuting her sentence to life with no chance of parole would not be a bad thing.
