Night Club Bouncer Accused of Murder

 

Jacksonville, Florida: A night club bouncer has been arrested for the killing and burning of 20 year old Chrissie Mejias.

The victim was found with a plastic bag over her head. The accused admitted to fellow inmates that the death was part of a satanic ritual.

  "Could?"  
 
He ADMITTED to it and he "could" get the death penalty? Sorry, but a confession should be a "straight to the chair, do not pass Go" ticket.

How naïve you are!

I agree with you 100%. He admitted to the murder and should be executed but that’s not how things work in the US. Our judicial system protects the rights of the accused with no rights for the victims or their families. Unless this man has more money than God does, the judicial system will provide him with attorneys to protect him. Even with an admission of guilt the trial can last for months and this is still no guarantee of the death penalty. If found guilty, he will be able to appeal the case to a higher court which can take several more months. When all is said and done, should the courts find him guilty, the chance of him receiving the death penalty is slim unless he is a habitual offender. Even then he can remain on death row for many years. So you see, we, the taxpayers of this wonderful democracy will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to protect and support this (admitted) criminal. In the mean time the family of the young lady he murdered gets to re-live this heinous crime over and over each time this scum is brought into the courtroom. And then there is always the chance the press will leak some information or a picture or someone will say something derogatory which may cause a mistrial and he will walk – a free man.
