Letter – Smacks of Salem

"...psychiatric and psychological reports . . . show there is little chance that Cameron Alexander Moffat, now 19, and Kruse Hendrik Wellwood, 17, can be rehabilitated and are at a high risk to re-offend violently and sexually for up to 40 years."

Smacks of Salem

“…psychiatric and psychological reports . . . show there is little chance that Cameron Alexander Moffat, now 19, and Kruse Hendrik Wellwood, 17, can be rehabilitated and are at a high risk to re-offend violently and sexually for up to 40 years.”

Not 39? Not 41?

“…studies and research…claim to show how the death penalty is ineffective at preventing murder.”

Claim? It’s been well established except to Texas prosecutors. All this smacks of the same logic that gripped Salem Mass in 1692 — none.
