Re "Death sentence in'09 killing" (Our Region, April 26): In law school, we were taught that stricter penalties for murder were appropriate in the case of premeditated crime rather than spontaneous. I thought at the time that we might protect the public more by sentencing and rehabilitating the spontaeous killers to learn to think things over. I think the ones who blow their tops might be a worse threat to the public than the planned murderers. Maybe I am wrong. When you think about it, what could be more premeditated than the death penalty itself.
