Va Rapist and Murder  Is Executed

The Process Behind Lethal Injection

Commentary
According to the article there have been 32 executions thus far this year in 2011. Now when I read this article of course the obvious comes about whether executions work as a means of deterrence and then the other argument comes from those who favor pro life and rehabilitation which we know is a failure for a whole lot of reasons. What is an interesting point in this article is that the man killed the elderly woman and took the $60.00 dollars to buy marijuana. Now this poses in my mind a lot of questions but the big one centers around legalizing marijuana. Now if this drug was available at the time could this crime have been prevented? Is there a connection between violence and marijuana? Just maybe this criminal was speaking rhetoric? I don’t know the answers to. these questions.I can only speculate for now because both the victim and the criminal both are dead  Now in my mind I am trying to figure out in this whole scenario who truly is the victim?
