Was the Parkland Verdict the Right Decision?

Jury verdicts, especially ones from headline-making trials, have the power to change the public perception of an issue.

Last week, the young man accused of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018 had his day in court. Instead of sentencing him to death, he will spend the rest of his life in prison.

I feel for the families of those who were killed. They have every right to be upset. While they can only visit their loved ones at their graves, the boy can still see his people.

In this case, the death penalty should have been the only verdict. This was not a random and sudden act. This killer walked into that school knowing exactly what he was going to do. No one walks into any place with those kinds of weapons without having a specific plan in mind.

May he only leave prison in a body bag and may he be haunted by those who he murdered.
