This composite of images taken 02 January, 2001 from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Internet site shows seven prisoners who escaped 13 December, 2000 from a Texas maximum-security prison in Kenedy, Texas, about 60 miles southeast of San Antonio. The fugitives (top L-R) Joseph Garcia, Donald Newbury, George Rivas, Larry Harper, (bottom L-R) Patrick Murphy, Jr., Randy Halprin and Michael Rodriguez had been serving sentences ranging from 30 years to life and allegedly escaped by posing as prison workers. The men are also wanted in connection with a Christmas Eve robbery of a Dallas-area sporting goods store in which a policeman was shot and killed.

Michelle McFerrin: As a former nurse in the TDCJ System, psychiatric prison hospital, I have always been an advocate for the death penalty...but furthermore, I think inmates should be WORKING ON A CHAIN GANG! I do not believe in them sitting in a cell getting 3 meals a day and a bed...I think they should be out making the world a better place since they have done enough to screw it up. we need a big deterrent...and now.

Megamicromel: It's ABOUT TIME! The POLUNSKY Unit in Huntsville will have seemed like a RESORT VACATION compared to where this SCUMBAG will be the DAY AFTER OCTOBER 10, Lol.

Jennie Long: i don't understand why he or any of the others in the escapee gang would fight for an appeal, when they committed the crime, they were all big boys & should have known right from wrong!, now it is time to pay for the crime.

Karen Drennon: How friggin petty that he dares to complain about the judge in any manner after what he's done! I believe in the death penalty but they need to speed up the process regarding others!

The benefits of keeping them alive outweigh the effects of executing them. It's important to further study the minds and psychology of these individuals and their personalities, linguistic patterns and behavioral patterns for future comparison and prevention purposes so that we may be able to one day catch these tendencies in children. The death penalty hinders progress globally. It makes more sense to study a brain while it is alive, rather than kill the corroded soul that drives it's thoughts for the false comfort and safety of our own.

His fate was sealed when a cop got killed even though he didn't pull the trigger.

Why should they keep them alive people say lock them up and throw away the key so they can't hurt any one else WHAT A LIE they will find some one to make a victim they will hurt a guard or a fellow inmate that's what they do they hurt people that's why they got the death penalty do I believe people change some do but they still commited a crime worthy of the death penalty some say study them to spot problems in children TRY RAISING THE CHILD THE RIGHT WAY I do know some just go the wrong way but most have been raised wrong but that is no excuse to hurt other people I have seen people who are now on death row and they have commited new crimes while locked up to include cutting other people throwing human waste on a guard WAKE UP THEY ARE NOT GETTING BETTER THEY ARE NOT TRYING TO GET BETTER these monsters are real they have no remorse they would kill you and your whole family for sick amusement in their deranged world am I for the death penalty yes in cases with out a doubt In the time we live in people can commit murder and be out in less than 10 years don't believe that look into it for your self I have seen it MAKE THE PUNISHMENT FIT THE CRIME AND THIS KILLING WILL STOP For the most part now if you get 10 years you sit and watch tv all day while the inmates wife works 2 jobs and brings his sorry behind 80dollars a week to buy chips and candy off canteen I bet his kids don't get that much candy a week wake up America make the system hurt and this stuff will stop God Bless

Takes too long to carry out the execution. It should be public and should be something on the order of hanging where would be a deterrent to other criminals.
