    Default Thousands Mourn Deadly Home Invasion Victims in Connecticut

    NEW BRITAIN, Conn. — Thousands of friends and strangers crowded a memorial service Saturday for a slain Cheshire mother and her two daughters, many breaking down in tears as the lone survivor of the attacks eulogized his family.

    Dr. William Petit Jr. still bore the bruises, gashes and other injuries inflicted by the attackers who killed his 48-year-old wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and daughters, 17-year-old Hayley and 11-year-old Michaela, during a home invasion early Monday.

    Two parolees are charged with capital felony, assault, arson, sexual assault and numerous other crimes in the homicides.

    This is a perfect example of why parole should not be granted to convicted felons.

    Remember TST, we saw this on the news the other morning, right after it happened.

    Anyways, I'm for the Old West Cowboy way of Judge and Jury. If you are guilty, without the shadow of a doubt, HANG YOU WILL BY THE GALLO's POLL.

    I am so sick and tired of the thugs, rapist, murders...etc of this country and world for that matter, getting the "red carpet" rolled out for them. Some people do reform from jail, most do not!!!

    Which, IMHO, means there's something wrong with our penal system. A man is supposed to go to jail to get reformed.
    Why spend thousands and thousands of taxpayer dollars to feed and clothe and shelter a man for years and years only to make him a more dangerous person when you let him go?
    A man who goes to jail should get whatever he needs to ensure that he doesn't need to be a dangerous criminal again; whether that's psychotherapy or education, or maybe just some honest work and discipline so that he acquires a higher standard of behavior for himself. I'd spend my tax dollars on that.
    But if you're just going to throw him in the snake pit and shit on him for tewnty years and then turn him loose on society again, you might as well save your time and money and just shoot him.

    Best wishes to what's left of the Petit family. Don't let the bastards keep you down.

    Since my former lead singer is doing life in prison for Murder-1, I have some insight into prison life (at least for him).

    He's in Oklahoma, his prison has air conditioning in the work and classroom areas only. This is to encourage the inmates to get out of their cells and do something. My old lead singer teaches English to other inmates so that they can get their GEDs, they also make furnature for schools and government offices.

    Do all of the inmates take part in rehabilitation programs? No. Needless to say, these guys are going to be the repeat offenders.

    Every state has a different prison system and some are better than others. In Federal Prision, inmates are afforded the opportunity to get their college degrees in a variety of subjects.

    In the end, it boils down to the individual as to weather they take advantage of the programs in prison.

    That's a good point. I guess it's true about life outside of prison, too. A person almost always has the choice of whether to do the next right thing or the next wrong thing.

    This is another reason why I'm all about killing people that need to be killed. I think Huricane Halen said it best about the old west way of doing things.

    This horrible tragedy happened in the town next to me. It's been the biggest topic of conversation around here this past week. And everyone that I've talked to about this agrees that the scumbags perpetrators should be killed.
    And I agree with the old west way of thinking --always have-- if you take a life your life is taken (in most cases). It seems to me that the majority of people agree with this viewpoint.
    These 2 shitheads had very long lists of prior convictions, but let's put them back out in society and see how they behave. Great system we have here. One guy on the news was saying that we need to have parole and probabation because we don't have enough prisons to house the criminals. Well can't we build more?

    We are building more prisons. America has a greater percentage of its population behind bars than any other nation. Do you feel safer?

    As to the "life for a life" argument, you don't have to follow that one too far down the road before you see that it won't work. The problem is much more complicated than that.

    I'm a tree-hugging, save-the-whales, tax-and-spend liberal Democrat, but I get along with conservatives pretty well since I try not to be too annoying about it. The only thing that I truly dislike about some conservative thinkers is the attitude that showing compassion for another human being is somehow unmanly. In my book, it's not.

    I'm not so stupid as to defend the actions of the scumbags who committed this horrible crime or any other like it. The only point I'm trying to make here is that if we--as a society--made them this way, then we owe it to ourselves to try and understand and fix whatever went wrong. Or else we'll just shoot these guys and have another two waiting in the bullpen to destroy another innocent family.

    My sister is a veteranarian, and she can tell you too many stories about people who buy a dog and then mistreat the dog for years by chaining it up to a tree and not giving it enough food and stuff like that. Then the dog bites someone and they blame the dog and put it to sleep. I think there are people in America who get treated worse than those dogs.

    We can't undo the horrible damage that was done to the Petit family. The best legacy we can give them now is to fix the things that are wrong in our society, help the young men who are right now being treated like dogs, so that this never, ever happens again.

    IMO< home invasion is one of the most horrific crimes one person can commit on another. Its fucking savage!!

    For a man to have to watch while his wife and children are raped and murdered in his own home has got to be more excrutiating than any other form of torture.

    The animals who committed this crime need to be put down.

    Prisons are big business... You don't think any politician who's receiving campaign funds from these operations are going to want to push laws that would lower the number of prisoners, do ya?
