Why should murderers be locked up forever?

Is common sense really that hard for lawmakers? Looks that way

Eric Pierson is charged with first-degree murder for the death of Erika Verdecia, according to News4Jax. Verdecia’s corpse was found outside Fort Lauderdale on Saturday after a three-week search. Police reported that, following his arrest, Pierson confessed to stabbing the woman four times with a screwdriver on September 25.

In 2020, he received an early release after serving 27 years of a 40-year sentence for brutally beating and strangling Kristina Whitaker, 17, to death in 1993. For this, he was charged with and found guilty of second-degree murder. Her death is credited with creating a push in the state for longer prison sentences and other stricter reforms.

One of the other results of Whitaker’s murder was the end of parole for prisoners in Florida. Prisoners are now required to serve at least 85% of their sentence. Despite this change, Pierson was still eligible for it as the change was not retroactive, allowing him to receive his early release in 2020.

If you kill, you should be done the first damn time. Not half, or 2/3 your sentence, not even 85% of your sentence! DAMN why is this so hard?

One thought on “Why should murderers be locked up forever?”

  1. There should be and expedited trial system for murderers They go to trial within a set time period after they commit the crime 30-90 days MAX. If they are found guilty they are allowed one appeal straight to a Special court equal to the Supreme court (only the judges run for election) If that appeal is denied there are executed with 24 hours of that appeal. ALL execution to be televised LIVE and in Color on ALL Networks. They they choose not to show it they lose their broadcast License NATIONWIDE for a period of 25 Years
