The courts got it right on Lewis

By washingtonpost.com editors

I have read with great interest about the ongoing saga of Teresa Lewis and her self-admitted “heinous crimes.” The reporting in The Post has been without bias toward a particular side of the death penalty issue, which has encouraged me to thoughtfully reconsider my stance. Ironically, however, it was the words of Lewis’s own attorney — referring to his client as “a good and decent woman” — that shocked me awake and galvanized my position. Ms. Lewis is a cold and evil woman — willing to have two innocents killed, to pander her teenage daughter and to stand idly by as her husband bled to death. She is anything but “good and decent.”

The courts got this one right. Lewis is a monster.

Since when is being gullible and stupid a reason not to get the death penalty?

So, she alone should have gotten the death penalty? I'm sure as soon as she takes her last breath there will be no more murders in Virginia, because the death penalty is such a deterent. Nothing is gained, no matter how you rationalize it.
