SOME FOLKS NEED KILLING (via Bryan Francoeur):

Cops say woman, son held by rapist for two days (Norman Miller, December 21, 2005, Boston Herald)

A lucky break probably saved the life of a Framingham woman who was kidnapped and viciously raped in front of her toddler son over nearly 48 hours, police say.

The woman’s nightmare ordeal only ended after she mouthed “help me” to a Plymouth liquor store clerk who happened to be a domestic violence counselor. The clerk called 911, leading to the woman’s dramatic rescue and the arrest of Evandro Doirado, 28, of Framingham. [...]

It began Saturday when, police said, Doirado believed he had stabbed a man to death in a botched drug deal.

“He wanted to ‘enjoy himself’ before he went to prison. Those are his words,” said Lt. Vincent Alfano. “Before I go to jail, I want to have a good time.’ ” Doirado picked out his victim at random in a Wal-Mart parking lot, Alfano said. “He approached her and kidnapped her by force with the child in the backseat.” Doirado drove the woman around Framingham, raping her several times and forcing her to withdraw $500 from an ATM machine. She was raped first in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Framingham then again in the lot of a Stop & Shop in Natick. She was also raped at a McDonald’s parking lot, but police said the woman does not recall where they were. Doriado made the woman drive to Plymouth, where he checked into the Pilgrim Sands motel, Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz said.

“He basically committed unspeakable acts against her over two days,” Cruz said. “This is your worst nightmare here.”

And now, because it's the "humane thing" to do, her tax dollars go to support Doirado for the rest of his natural life.

Giving credit where it's due, I cribbed the story from They're a bunch of nativist fratboys, but they do hit one out of the park from time to time.
I don't much like the death penalty, but sometimes it's hard not to want to see guys like this get some old school Biblical justice.

A civilization that won't punish guys like this
(without a second though) is truly pathetic.

To be fair, this trash will probably be experiencing a little rape himself for the next few years. Does have an eye for an eye quality about it.

(Of course some lib Mass pol will probably let him out on furlow or parole within a year or two )

Let Bubba do it.

Just put him in General Population, spread the word around the cons of what he did, and then nobody sees or hears a thing.

Funny. The other day Orrin's argument was that life imprisonment was too harsh, and capital punishment was the humane way to go, the soft option.

It's not a question of whether criminals deserve to die. Of course lots of terrible people deserve to die. Nothing is easier than digging up garish news reports of rapists and serial killers to make the stomach churn and the blood boil.

It's a question of setting up a legal system that minimises the possibility of killing wrongly convicted people.

I suppose it wouldn't matter to you that more tax dollars would be spent to put him to death? That is, its cheaper to keep a man in in prison for life than it is to go through the execution procedure?
Thank God for lawyers.

And if you are so hell bent on punishing someone, i would definately second the notion that life in prison is a fate worse than death.

there's no such thing as spending too much money to do the right thing. We have cash, we need morality.
