I don't care why someone commits murder, they should be made to pay the price.  The price should be commensurate with the crime.  Don't let them talk, don't let them try to explain their way out of doing murder or lying.

The Oklahoma City Bomber should have been made to sit on a drum of explosives in an isolated area and made to sit and sit and just when he thinks he is safe, explode the bomb.  Let him feel the tragedy he visited on so many people, let him know the fear of the unknown.

Being lenient with people, giving excuses to and for people who commit heinous acts is not my job.  I don't want to be distracted from the serious nature of what crime they committed.

We have people sitting in prison with life sentences for selling or using marijuana.  Why?  Nowadays using marijuana as long as you are not trafficking in it or lacing it with LSD or some poison it is considered a misdemeanor.

Things are not quite right with the legal system.  I like the judge who sentenced a young girl to walk 30 miles or spend 30 days in jail and pay a fine a more just punishment for using a taxi cab to get some place and then stiff the driver.

Letting people lie about stealing money is dangerous.  If a corporation or people lie for whatever reason there should be a punishment, not an excuse, a slap on the hand and a promise not to do it again.  Lying becomes a habit and should be stopped at an early age.  If not stopped then the punishment should fit the crime.  Rachel Dolezal lied about being black;  I don't know what her punishment should be, but I wouldn't let her go on public tv and explain it.  There is no justification for what she has done and if she is mentally ill treat the illness don't parade her around.

You can tell I am really upset by people who get away with doing wrong - don't make them public figures
