In the article Trump says he wanted to aim for the killers of the weak and vulnerable, people who killed little children and raped women (You could say he himself has targetted the weak and vulnerable, prisoners already incarcerated for endless years, going through excruciating appeals one after another, hope against hope.) It strikes me as anomalous that the two recent guys put to death didn't actually pull the trigger themselves - although that is no excuse for their participation in what they knew was wrong and illegal - whilst a monster like Frederick Baer in Indiana gets his heinous murder and rape of a mother and her young daughter conviction commuted to two life sentences. In his case, he planned and calculated the crime, knocking on the woman's door and asking for water, rather than in the heat of the moment. Well, good for him dying in prison with his various cats. It shouldn't vary from state to state IMV.
Blott en dag, ett ögonblick i sänder,

vilken tröst, vad än som kommer på!
