Letter: Bring back the death penalty

Bring back the death penalty

EDITOR: A recent article in this newspaper has indicated that the police have arrested a Wausau man suspected of shooting another to death. He will most likely be charged and tried for intentional homicide.

If he is convicted of that crime, he will be sentenced to prison. Once in prison he will have a roof over his head, three meals a day, dental care, health care, a bed to sleep in and numerous other benefits. Our veterans are not being offered these things and they served our country.

Maybe it is time to consider the death penalty for crimes of this nature. If the death penalty doesn't deter crime, at least it will decrease the financial burden on taxpayers for supporting this way of life in prison. It would also help with prison overcrowding. A good portion of the crimes being committed are done by convicted felons, so it doesn't look like they are being reformed during their prison stay.

Patrick Hommerding,
