Good riddance to bad rubbish

Cop killer dead.

Before I was against the death penalty, I was for it. There are instances, like this one and others* that force me to reconsider that stance. I think it's no surprise that they didn't bring this piece of crud in alive, but the point is ... he should never have been out on the street to begin with. I also believe that there is no way Huckabee will run for President now in 2012. These sorts of things tend to haunt people for their entire lives. I know the families of these four police officers will have to live with it, so it's not as if Huckabee will suffer alone through all of this. Besides, he still has his television show ... those families don't have their sons and daughters, moms and dads, brothers and sisters.

*Jessica Lunsford is another one that comes to mind. While that scum died in jail, every breath he took was an insult to humanity.

the whole story is just so depressing. He should have never been released, but I really wish our system would at least try to rehabilitate before letting people go, then maybe things like this wouldn't happen.
I hope the officer who shot him doesn't get in trouble for overreacting or unjustified use of force.

I imagine that officer will receive plenty of awards and promotions. Not to mention lots of free beers and meals for quite some time.
