"And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God"
-- Micah 6:8

"The duty of the prosecutor is to seek justice, not merely to convict."
-- American Bar Association Standard 3-1.2(c)

"There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia."
--Pope Benedict XVI, June 2004

"He's going to get what he deserves."

Indeed.

So said little seven year old rape/murder victim Alyssa Maria Vasquez's mother as her killer was strapped to the gurney.

Texas executed the child rapist/murderer, Guadalupe Esparza, who had "been convicted in the past for assault, sexual assault and cocaine possession."

Some cases deserve the ultimate penalty. Regardless of whether a man like Esparza could be rendered harmless by some other means, his horrific crime, the terror and fright he inflicted on an innocent child before snuffing out her young life, cry out for this ultimate penalty, so that justice may be seen to have been done.
