Q & A

How do you feel about the Steven Hayes verdict condemning him to death for the murder of the CT mother and her two daughters? Do you feel this was a fair and reasonable verdict or just an easy way out for him?

    • I have to say, listening to this on the TODAY show this morning had me in tears. Words can’t even explain how horrid this situation was and how heinous a creature this man is. IMHO death is too easy for him. My heart goes out to the husband and father of this family and knowing he will have to live with the awful memory of this for the rest of his life.

    • This is the debate I have within myself. For I feel the s.o.b. Should die and yes, its to easy for him BUT while I want him to suffer in a life time of hatd labor or misery I DONT want to pay for his shelter,clothing,food,medical ect....and they have better medical than most hard working honest people
      Then if he wants to write a book ,contact the outside would he can because he still has rights.
      So, for this I always go with the easy way. Death penalty. At least that way he can do no more harm to anyone or contact anyone so with time the family can have whatever peace they can find.

    • I wouldn’t want to pay for his room and board either and too bad his rights as a human being still hold up in prison, because I would use him as a scientific experiment.

      What if, now I’m only speculating ... the husband set this up? Ever since it happened there has been a nagging thought in the back of my mind. Him being beaten up and left for dead in the basement just doesn’t sound right to me. Maybe I read too many true crime stories.....

    • I don’t believe in the death penalty for any one period.  Putting someone to death is not “the easy way out“; it’s a long, expensive, torturous period of appeal after appeal. And it’s just plain wrong IMHO.

    • Cheeky I agree about not wanting to pay for his food, clothing and shelter...good point. And you‘re right...prisoners get better medical care than many of us out here...it’s not right.  

      Kyah you know I had that thought run across my mind a few times too but I just don’t know. I think in situations like this it’s normal to have that thought. But I’m wondering if he really did set it up wouldn’t the other guys have said something by now?

      Anne I just know if it were my family that was murdered I’d want the man tortured in the most inhumane way and then put to death. That may sound harsh and cold but he didn’t care about this poor family that he tortured and murdered so why should we care about what happens to him? I don’t want to breathe the same air as him.

    • Condemned to death means little if he gets another 10 to 25 years of life. Not familiar with this case, but it sounds like a lot of other murder death row cases. I just hope it has been proved without a doubt that he did this on his own.

    • Angell, you know that old saying “money talks & BS walks,” right? He could have paid them losers more money than they could ever make in a lifetime and they may have the death sentence but the appeals will go on for years, even decades. Their families could be set for life....

    • I wish there were a more torturous, prolonged death process, those murderers deserve so much worse. It’s so hard to believe a human being could be as cruel as he/they.

      Every time I think of this case my heart goes out to the husband/father. And I don’t believe for one second that he had anything at all to do with the torture and horrific murder of his wife and girls.

    • Ang I’m with you.  People who are against the death penalty, well I always ask them “well how would you feel if it was your daughter raped and burned to death????“.  I never get a decent answer.  The poor woman did what they asked her to do and they still wiped out the family.

      I never once thought the husband was involved.  He was tied up, beat to a pulp and ran to the neighbors for help and the neighbor didn’t recognize him.  

      IMO, if given the death penalty of course with all facts, then load em up in the van and drive em straight to their execution!
