Hope Trayvon Martin's murderer does the same, however.
And he thanked Grant "for not gloating about it".
You set our world straight - bully for you!
And keep up that online presence.
Thanks for reading correctly. I appreciate you taking the time to make that comment.
To the guard that watched him every 30 minutes, thanks for making sure he knew exactly when to do it so his attempt would succeed.
"the desire to punish people for doing the wrong thing is primitive and achieves nothing positive,"
but I guess I'm full of it, because my first internal reaction to this news was of disappointment, (because he got out of suffering).
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest;
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes:
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown;
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
But mercy is above this sceptred sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself;
And earthly power doth then show likest God's
When mercy seasons justice.
Think of those poor girls' relief in knowing that evil bastard is gone off of the face of the earth. Suicide is the only kindness he could have done them. Good Riddance.
I'm also an atheist, but nothing about suicide seems to me to be "the easy way out". I'm sure spending the duration of his life in a jail cell was a horrifying prospect and the shame and depression he felt due to his acts probably pushed him over the edge, but seriously: how sane was this guy in the first place? On the other hand, it's conceivable to me that, given some therapy and time, he might've had some kind of improved quality of life - he might've enjoyed some kind of interior life - and by killing himself, that's gone. So, you know, really, I'm fine with it, just about any way you slice it.
I have no problem with people dancing on the grave of a monster.
"OK, Jack, you perform CPR on Castro."
"Negative, dude, Ralph should be the one to do that."
"Sorry, I think I'm coming down with the flu, how about Charley?"
I highly doubt he felt shame.
