Re "Defense lawyer leads death penalty to abyss" (Dan Morain, July 27): Why does the victim's right always seem to count second over the killer's rights? The killer showed no mercy to his/her victim when they killed, and yet some get upset because it takes two hours for the killer to die.

Put the death penalty into action and to make it work, put the killer to death the same way he or she killed. What goes around comes around. The death penalty has been voted in twice, just start putting it into action and give the victims some justice. A killer should no longer be breathing air especially when the victim isn't.
