    GA - John Arnett, 27, sex offender, strangled in prison, 22 Jan 2010

    Honor among thieves?

    John Arnett, who was convicted of child molestation in 2 Georgia counties, was found in his cell last Thursday. The cause of death was manual strangulation. Arnett's sentence began last July, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections. An inmate already serving time for a previous murder conviction has been accused in Arnett's death.

    Heh, take that Supreme Court.

    Our courts can't put them to death, I'm sure there will always be other inmates happy to take up that slack.

    Thank you Mr. Convicted Murderer for using your powers for good.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    The boogeyman may come after all of us; the dead guy is someone's son, brother or whatever & they are most likely grieving. I'm sure we all regret their pain.

    However..... being informed about sex criminals, perverts & the lot, we know they cannot be "fixed" & are oh so pleased when one is actually off the streets. Far too many are allowed to plead down, remain among us & offend again. GRRRRR! Children's lives are damaged forever & that is uncompromisable.

    Not really proud to say, but I agree with the group... good riddance. I am never pleased to have my tax $$$$ spent to feed, house & make comfy those who cannot conform to society. Bring back the chain gang! We can all work for stricter laws to confine the bad guys.

    I too have sympathy only for the family of the convict killed - but no way for the convict himself. We have so many homeless children who need clothes, food,etc. If it were up to me I would put inmates to work by building factories into the prisons, farms on the prison grounds, etc. We could clothe and feed the homeless while making these convicts productive for the rest of their lives.

    You actually want him to kill someone who appears to be suffering from psychological delusions?

    See, that's the danger of sanctioned murder. A pedophile is killed and most of us will quite naturally breathe a sigh of relief that yet another predator is off our streets. But where does it stop? Oh, this person or that is really weird and creepy, or rather, they don't fit my world view. So, it's okay to kill them.

    Our society would do well to not only learn its history but know it well so we do not repeat it. One such historical fact is a country who started out on just such premises. The end result was a stain on humanity that will never wash off. Am not saying that we (as in the U.S.) are there yet.

    Though, some might argue that point with places like Gitmo, and the BSCT teams. That, and that we're already one of only two nations that put their teens to death. Same said may then point to things such as the repeated cries for blood that occur not only on forums such as this, but also in the media. And lest we forget, the media circus that has surrounded the Caylee Anthony case.

    I dunno. I guess I am still of the opinion that two wrongs do not make a right. And that rationalizing violence only paves the way to more violence.

    But hey, that's just me.
