    CA - Onion Fields Killer Denied Parole

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100128/...mlvbmZpZWxka2k-

    This murder was one of the very first I remember. I'm glad he's not getting out. Saying he'd dying of cancer does not mean he should be free.

    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.
