    I have to agree with yu on this one!! What’s the hole point about keeping inmates a live when they’ve committed murders themselves…. Send them all to IRAQ!!!

      Totally lol! What about (all) the innocent inmates? Should they die with the guilty as well? These forums (not to mention this printing press)are ridiculous especially with all of the bias they’ve thrown out.
