    What has our society come to? The only thing that separates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom is self control and the ability to control urges…. Even though some of these so-called humans have these sick repulsive urges, they are supposed to be able to control them at least.
    So this is a true indicator that they are a complete animal and should be caged as such for the rest of their lives. There is no way to reform predators, psychopaths, sociopaths or narcissists.

    Well, if the death penalty was utilized and not housing severe criminals for years upon years giving them all the comforts outside of jail except freedom, as well as, bringing God back into our society instead of forcing him out, I’d think we would see a different USA.
