If we cut off this mans ear (eye for an eye), I am positive people would think before they didRead More violent things to another person. Same thing with a thief, cut off his hand for stealing! It is time our legal system had some bite to it!

If this was a domestic incident and she stabbed because he was hurting her then good for him. UntilRead More they protect victims of domestic abuse this is what shoukd occur and she has every right to laugh at what she did. Now if she committed a random killing then i side with the judge.

Give her a few more hot dogs and a few big gulps, maybe she'll explode herself and save the expenseRead More of keeping her in prison. You know what it's going to cost Michigan to feed her? I don't favor the the death penalty in certain circumstances, but apparently she does. And the judge-I think he showed restraint considering her complete lack of respect, obviously for not only everyone else but herself as well. Isn't contempt of court another felony or misdemeanor?

The death penalty accomplishes three things: It reduces the recidivism rate by 100%. It providesRead More SOME means of closure for the victim's family and friends. It reduces the expense to taxpayers to feed and house the criminals for a very long time. Whether it's a disincentive to commit murder is not fully understood, there is conflicting data. Depends on whether the study was conducted by a liberal or conservative group. One of the countries with the lowest murder (and crime) rate in the world is Singapore. Their justice system pulls no punches, they even execute drug dealers.
CEOs at Michigan's publicly traded companies earned an average of $7 million annually, 171 times the salary paid to average workers and 455 times more than full-time minimum wage workers, an analysis of S&P 500 companies shows. (Patch file photo)

When are people going to figure out that what a person earns is based on the value derived of theirRead More services. Hence a CEO which drives up profitability, guided by firm metrics brings much more value than a minimum wage worker who is only performing a service or unskilled function. This is no different than how entertainers and athletes are paid based on the value they bring, i.e. revenue they create within their organization.

The judge was over the top!! He should be reprimanded!!!
RS April 18, 2014 at 08:16 am
The judge is right and yes there should be a death penalty!
susan April 18, 2014 at 09:47 am
If there was a death penalty maybe these killers wouldn't think it was so funny. In the days of DNARead More and video cameras everywhere I think it would be a lot easier to be certain that the killer is definitely guilty. As for the judge being "over the top"? NO WAY! This woman is a cold blooded murderer and has the audacity to laugh and roll her eyes at the grief of a family that has lost a loved one. She should have been shut up and ordered to leave the courtroom. In any case, I'm sure she'll learn to shut her mouth when she ends up in prison with other murderers.

This is asinine! This world has gone crazy. He would gladly pay for the drink and who reads all ofRead More the little posted signs? If we stoped to read every sign, we would never be able to continue our journey. I can see my husband innocently doing the same thing. We need perspective and common sense.

Daffy, Dale M, after these last couple of years of reading his bunk, has grown beyond tiresome.Read More You are right about his 5:48 pm comment. Who are any of us to ask another, what have you done to rebuild urban America, then pat ourselves on the back for participating in a company initiative? Dale M is a narcissist, who wraps himself in his religious, but self-righteous clothing. He will take umbrage, deny, deflect, do what Glenn or someone says "look, a squirrel", but he is rather hopeless. I feel some sympathy for him, while I'm not sure I should. I dont know if it's his personality or an outcome of his cancer. His views are ok to voice, but he doesn't have facts to back them up most of the time. And he is so unpleasant in how he addresses others, while denying what he does. He has made everything so personal and about himself, hundreds of times. It's particularly sad to me that he of all outspoken confessing Christians, during this week in particular for Christians, would bother accusing someone else of not helping the less fortunate, or should I say less blessed, then credit himself with good works that really should be credited only to GM. Since it is now past midnight, it is Good Friday. I know you are not Christian, but those of us who are should have other things on our minds today, and should be doing other things, than commenting here. I hope you have a holy Passover, those of us who are Christians have a holy Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter. And for those who just celebrate the secular Easter, hopefully it is with family and friends, good food, chocolate, and Peeps.
Greg Thrasher April 18, 2014 at 08:12 am
Why does Jesse Jackson have to comment at all about this?? This is insane and reflects yet again theRead More racist nature of our nation that indicts an entire race if people for the shortcomings of a few. So the next time a white person murders or commits a crime let's drag out some white minister to make a statement !!
gregg phillips April 18, 2014 at 08:20 am
so Mr Thrasher? you are admitting that jesse is a racist.....good now that is out.....

Greg Thrasher April 18, 2014 at 08:20 am
Pitiful observing the depth and scope of contempt for Detroit and Black people in this site. TheRead More rush to indict and entire city and race of people because of the shortcomings of a few reflects a racial pathology which is common feature tragically of White America even now in 2014 with a person of color in the White House. It is obvious the disease of racism has a long and ugly shelf life... WTF
Prometheus April 18, 2014 at 08:25 am
Not racism....rather a deep hatred of criminals. You on the other hand seem to embrace the criminalRead More element as shown in your comment here:http://dearborn.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/michigan-judge-threatens-duct-tape-tells-killer-i-hope-you-die-in-prison.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!
