Virtually no coverage of the lives ended, often horrifically, but these murderers
8 October 2018 | by VoyagerMN1986See all my reviews

I have to say that every human being can be portrayed sympathetically, even the most vile, brutal people who dismember children for fun, callously knife to death women, and commit the most heinous crimes, if you do no more than a quick drive-by of their actual crime.

You literally could put Stalin, Pol Pot, Hitler, or Mao on this show the way the presentations are done, and have people saying: "Oh they were not so bad."

Also the one case I watched were doubt was cast on the conviction, there was no mention that the death row inmate had a prior second degree murder (pled down from first) and a prior manslaughter pled down from first/second murder. The implication by leaving out that fact was this was some kind of good guy who may have been the victim of a miscarriage of justice -- when his hyper violent priors show he was an unmitigated and habitually lethally violent : "super predator."

Really people on death row are "repentant" -- and that is a surprise? What does it mean when a 40 year old kidnaps, brutally rapes and sodomizes and then and beats to death a 14 year old girl and is "repentant" as his penalty awaits?
