Horrible acts call for new dialogue, and harsher penalty.
Using the Kimberly Proctor case as an example, a sentence of life in prison should be exactly that. Forget parole. These “kids” planned and perpetrated an adult crime. First degree murder is a line you only cross once. There should be no second chances.
The notion that these two murderers could be eligible for parole in 10 years is crazy. We should be protecting and easing the suffering of the victims, not the criminals.
The only option that gives any peace to the families is knowing these murderers will never walk free among us again, ever.
