35 minutes too long ;-b
They're apparently pushing to have him serve 50 years before being eligible for parole.
I'd say he should be in prison with NO chance of parole.
I've been watching the trial, this guy is such a wacko. The stuff that his attorney tried to use. WOW. I'm sorry the state of KS doesn't have the death penalty, because 50 years is just too short of time for this jerk.
I was on jury duty last summer and was on a trial that we convict our guy of a DUI in 5 minutes. But we couldn't agree on the other charge.
As an aside, we do currently have the death penalty in Kansas. However, not every murder qualifies for it and we haven't actually put anyone to death since 1994, when it was re-instated. There are currently, I believe, 10 people on death row, but our State Congress is set to start proceedings to decide whether or not to abolish it, due to cost and the fact that we don't actually put people to death. Anyway, we do have it, although that might change in the near future was my point. : )
