This was not a passive murder (shooting), he actively beat these three victims to death with a HAMMER.

This man beat the victims with a hammer, with such savagery that the initial investigation, it was thought that they had been shot in their faces with a large shotgun. He should have been put down many years ago.

It is time to stop wasting money on this fool. He should have been executed years ago.

the death penalty is actually far more expensive than a system that utilizes life in prison

Against the death penalty in general, but then there are cases like this one.

regardless of your stance on the death penalty, the supreme court clearly established in 2002 that it is considered "cruel and unusual punishment" to execute someone with a mental disability. Johnson repeatedly scored below the comprehension level of a 5 yr old on disability tests.

Two wrongs don't make a right, it's NOT justice, it's revenge, that is evil. Makes you no better than the Perp.

But it will prevent another wrong, and that may save an undetermined amount of lives.

in response to max de young: 1. no one was advocating this man ever be freed from prison 2. the death penalty is proven to not reduce the amount of violent crimes in a country

There is no way of knowing whether he understood what he was doing when he killed the people.

I'm pretty certain the people he beat to death also failed to understand him too.

OMG! I am so frighted! Omicron has so many mutations the vaccine may not work to protect people, not even people with 10 booster shots! I am just going to lockdown and wear 5 masks inside my house, 10 masks when my neighbors are home. Biden HELP us, send $10,000 stimulus checks (inflation) now! /s

It’s the plandemic. Watch the stock market. It drops when they announce the new variant, people panic sell, and the big dogs pick up the stocks cheap and three days later the stock market recovers, mild symptoms with O variant...it’s all a ploy. Anyone who thinks otherwise can look back and track it

I just checked the sky over my house. It appears to be solid and mostly blue. Much more stable than the sky above MU Campus. I believe I am safe.
