Quotes

...Moments later the judge was heard by the McGintys to say in a private conversation picked up by the microphone: "I feel so very sorry for these families. They make these statements thinking they are going to make a difference, but they make no difference at all. Someone should tell them."
"As far as I'm concerned, if anything, Willis's sentence ought to be increased. Life should mean life"
I called former San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Brown to get his take on the prosecution. "Criminal sanctions are ways of creating a deterrent to bad behavior or to negligent behavior" Brown said
A very sobering quote from one of these articles is powerful enough to give pause: "If humans disappeared overnight, the earth would be a better place."
