Our punishment


Last week I read an article in the Morning Journal about a Cleveland man admitting to raping children and killing two women. Since he pleaded guilty to 297 counts, including murdering the women and kidnapping and raping children he will get two 20 years to life sentences. This is outrageous.

And now another atrocity, the authorities responsible for giving these types of people a life sentence should be put on “death row” themselves for allowing killers and rapists to live in prison at the taxpayers’ expense.

Our prisons should go back to the old standards as a punishment for their actions. Not a luxury hotel as they have become: three free meals a day, TV and activities, workout facilities, free medical, dental, etc., again at our expense.

One other thought. Our rights as stated in our preamble to the Constitution is of the people, by the people, for the people, so where and how does Obama and our government have the right or power to force insurance coverage on us, the people, and yet give insurance and free money to foreigners and illegal immigrants at our, the people’s, expense. This insurance issue should be voted on by the people and every vote counted.

Our government and Obama are supposed to be for the people, not against the people.
