Golden State Killer Gets Life Sentence

The Golden State Killer is the perfect example of why the death penalty is justified — and why life in prison is preferable.

Especially in California, where a death penalty sentence is practically meaningless.

Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. — also dubbed the Visalia Ransacker, East Area Rapist or Original Night Stalker, depending on the community he terrorized — was among “the worst of the worst.” “

He is the real-life version of Hannibal Lecter,” Sacramento County Dist. Atty. Anne Marie Schubert told reporters, referring to the fictitious psychopathic killer in the movie “Silence of the Lambs.” More

  1. Unlike what the left likes to say, the death penalty is effective as a deterrent- but only if it is regularly implemented.

  2. At the rate these liberal states are going on defunding the police and releasing everyone from prison he probably has a better chance at a Covid release than Roger Stone.

  3. @Mr. Mxyzptlk – I would add the word “quickly” to your statement. As the story says, there would have been 20 – 25 years of appeals.
    That is ludicrous. Let the prison population know what he did to the kids and let them deal with him, it will be quicker, and there won’t be any appeals

    …the death penalty 100% deters the MURDERER from recitivism, and that ALONE is worth it…

  5. He could have been dealt with more harshly, like California treats republicans for example.

  6. Could not have said it better myself. Recidivism rate is zero among those executed.
    He will not live out the term!

  7. “Regardless of the life or death sentence, the depraved DeAngelo will die behind bars.“

    Unless some liberal judge orders his release on a technicality. Or a politician releases him because of COVID-19.

  8. Not only is the death penalty a deterrent, but it’s a gross injustice for taxpayers to have to pay even one cent to keep someone alive who has proven themselves to be a mortal danger to the lives of innocent people and cannot be trusted at all to live in society.

    It is an injustice to us to have to pay to keep them alive. If the people that don’t believe in the death penalty for such people as that really believe it they can volunteer their money to keep them alive but it is wrong to force this on society to pay. It is a gross injustice to be forced to pay for it by those people that don’t believe in capital punishment for first degree murder. Let them put their money where their mouths are.

  9. I dunno, he seems like a reasonable guy. Some counseling and a change in his environment and he’ll be right as rain. Who are we to judge?

  10. 1st, they have to be caught …………then tried & found guilty……this is where endless appeals begin.
    LWOP, the rest of your life in prison really sucks, many commit suicide. Many are very old when eventually caught.
    I worked in the California dept of corrections & rehabilitation. Prison is NOT a vacation. Many of these people are truly evil & should NEVER be released.
    PLUS
    Out of 54,868 homicides in 55 cities over the past decade, 50 percent did not result in an arrest and an arrest is not a conviction.

  11. If Wash. state had released Gary Ridgeway because of the wu flu I could pretty much guarantee he’d be dead within a week killed by some fed up local citizen and the cops would look the other way. I can’t believe how stupid and corrupt our state govt. is here in Wash. state to even consider this.

  12. When the liberal asswipes can make common sense between unrestricted abortions and stopping the death penalty then I will listen.
