The only news that came out of the Nancy Grace story on Headline News is that the DA's office will seek the death penalty. So if he is convicted we will be reminded of this every time his appeal is heard. And the way our legal system works it may take 20 years to work through it.
Sometimes I think our legal system is so stupid. Sure, many people deserve the death penalty. But by the time you get to it you have put everyone involved through countless appeals and reliving the horrible events. Lock them up and throw away the key.
And every once in a while you find out that someone was wrongly convicted. The state should not execute people.
Last night Nancy Grace didn't have a clue about this case. She inflated the body count and obsessed out the twist ties that the prosecution said was used to commit the crime.
