    A public servant fighting for the whole community. What a piece of s*** Cori bush. Defending criminals just like the rest of the Liberals. He should have been put down a long time ago

    I am German and live in Germany. A state that kills people in the name of the people or even in the name of an invented god is nothing more than a murderer. A state that murders people turns vicarious agents into murderers. If there is God then he will send these people to hell.

    I love how they frame his execution as a racial injustice. Killing 3 people is pretty much a death penalty as far as I'm concerned, white, black, brown, whatever. This pos deserves his sentence, yesterday.

    When you defend people that murder innocent people, you should have your mentality checked.

    He murdered them with a claw hammer. One of my childhood friends mother was a victim. The crime scene was horrendous. They originally said that because he was high on pcp that was the cause of the crime now the story has changed to try and save him. May the families finally have closure.

    May the families of his crime finally have peace.
