    When is all this senseless, heartless cold blooded killing going to stop? We should find some other method to penalize these animals when they are apprehended. Right now, they get free room and board, indoor and outdoor recreation, free medical and dental, television, library, phone privileges, visitors etc, etc. Then they are eventually released for serving the debt to society and get to walk around free while the person they murdered remains dead forever. This does not add up. Time to bring back the death penalty. Either hanging or the firing squad. No lethal injection to put them to sleep. The person they killed did not have that option.

    Post pictures of Charles F. Bolden, Jr. everywhere. He was appointed by Obama himself to be the new NASA Administrator. These kids should be looking up to Mr. Bolden, as a shining exemplar.

      Uhhh…should have had one anyway. Much rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6. And who shoots a 65 year old man? Only an animal that has barely enough intelligence to use a firearm,

    To the Killer: You are now a FUGITIVE. You had better climb on a Spacecraft and head for the MOON. If you stay on Earth they’re going to hunt you down and take you down just like the animal that you are. SpaceX gonna give it to ya.

      check out all the members of the british commonwealth who have been granted their independence, and who have copied the mother country in banning firearms. read about the horrific increase in crime with guns in australia, for example. and, since history always repeats itself, consider what britain had to do when faced with a nazi invasion in 1940, after the fall of france. they had to ask american sportsmen to donate firearms and ammo so the home forces could try to repel the wehrmacht, when it landed. a gun has never leaped off a table or the wall, fired itself and killed someone. it needed a human finger on the trigger.
