    Justice has been served in Washington state with the life sentence given to Patrick Drum, who murdered two registrants. This is not the time for the application of Old Testament punishment. Two men have already died needlessly. There is no need for a third man to die, no matter how heinous his crimes. Peace be with you.

    Wow, this is a truly disturbing story! The murderer had supporters? I’m both shocked and appalled by this story and people should take notice. What if (I believe this actually happened) the perpetrator had gone to the wrong home? Or, what if the victim had children present? What about the victims family? This incident certainly was secondary to current laws? Lawsuit? This terrible incident certainly substantiates a reason why current laws must change! It’s just terrible? Supporters for the murderer?
