bet he feels a little stupid tonight.

Low-life piece of trash attempts to rape, then murders a 16-year-old girl.  Then he waits for her 14-year-old sister to come home from school, rapes her, and attempts to kill her as well.

Convicted of capital murder, his sentence is overturned by the VA Supreme Court, citing lack of evidence for capital offense-eligible actions in the commission of the homicide.  He is convicted for the rape and attempted murder of the 14-year-old sister instead, and sent away to the Big House.

From prison, thinking that he’s no longer eligible for the death penalty anymore, he writes a taunting letter to the prosecutor, detailing his attempted rape of the murder victim—thereby admitting to a capital offense (the attempted rape combined with the homicide.) 

His words in the letter to the prosecuting D.A.:

Since I have already been indicted on first degree murder and the Va. Supreme Court said that I can’t be charged with capital murder again, I figured I would tell you the rest of what happened on Jan. 29, 1999, to show you how stupid all of y’all … are.

Scumbag is indicted once more, this time for murder and attempted rape of the 16-year-old girl.  Convicted, appeals denied, clemency denied…and his date with Old Sparky is tonight, at 9PM EST.

Everybody now:

<Nelson> Ha-ha! </Nelson>

Good riddance, scumbag.  It’s a shame your victims didn’t have a chance to put some buckshot through your brisket back on January 29th, 1999.  It would have saved everyone a lot of trouble, and the taxpayers a chunk of change for your room and board for ten freakin’ years.

    That right there is just what I needed this evening. An uplifting family tale about a scumbag just sizzling with stupidity.

      i was thinking the same thing. So far today has gone pretty well. I had awesome Indian food for lunch, half a medium Dominos pizza for dinner, and my wife is coming home after being gone for 3 days. The only possible way for this to be better is if I got a phone call from the VA Governor that said, “Mr Sorrentino, you have been chosen at random from all the people in the US to push the button. We have hooked the electric chair up to the touch tone phone system. The time is now 8:59 and 45 seconds. On my mark, please press button #2 to initiate electrocution. Ready, Mark.”

    Haven’t heard confirmation, but hoping the necessary deed is done, albeit way too comfortably for said scumbag.

    Good on VA for cutting in half the usual waiting period for the extermination of rabid vermin, but I have two daughters, and yes I’ve said this before when similar circumstances were discussed, but if these are my children, this particular varmint dies horribly at my hand somehow someway in a far more timely fashion, and I will gladly pay whatever the cost the law and God may impose upon my body and soul.

    As one who doesn’t trust the government to do anything right, I’m opposed to the official death penalty. Don’t get me wrong, if somebody comes in through yer bedroom window at 0300, please take care of him and I’ll buy you some ammo to replace what you used on him.

    That said, this fellow does seem to have volunteered for it. It is a damned shame that his nastyness and stupidity weren’t taken care of by a private citizen years ago, thereby saving public funds, etc.

  13. Lee says:

    I’m a little disturbed by the number of people here who are demonstrating that they are no better than the scumbag. Yes, he certainly deserves death. No, he does not deserve torture.

    Think of him as a livestock-killing dog; you have to put it down because once they start they don’t stop, but torturing it doesn’t do any good and turns YOU into a monster.

          Venting one’s pain upon the evil git might make you feel better in the now. However, it will either haunt you or twist you in the long run.

          The quick, clean kill is not about being compassionate to someone who is twisted and evil. It is about minimizing the damage that the twisted and evil can do.

        • anonymous says:

          “quick, clean kill”?

          That’s for taking down dumb animals who had the unfortunate luck to be born as dinner-in-waiting.

          The name of the game at hand is visceral vengeance for the innocent victims, and protection of future victims is icing on the cake.

          You are so concerned with not being inhumane that you are inhuman.

          If you are not a parent, then you have zero credibility in your preachy condescension. And if you are? Heartless monster it is, then.

    • Beaumont says:

      Lee,
      He’s worse than a livestock-killing dog. In my experience, animals do not generally plan heinous acts for their own gratification. He’s an EVIL bastard, a demon in flesh. He does deserve all the pain we can inflict upon him before he goes to the Pit. Furthermore, I would be quite happy to inflict that pain upon him, although that honor is more properly performed by surviving victims or their families.

  14. B Smith says:

    Here in my locale, we have one Anthony Kirkland, convicted of raping and murdering four women and attempting to burn the bodies of two of those (one a 13-year-old jogger).
    He confessed in open court to two of the murders, and jury has recommended the death penalty. So, as one commenter asked, why will he spend longer in prison (sucking up tax money during his automatic appeals) than his youngest victim was alive?
    Boils my blood.

    Posters who are proponents of torture,
    Posters who volunteer to inflict unbelievable pain,
    Posters who never question what or who made this creature the monster he was . . .

    There is no hope for this civilization.

      A civilized society puts down rabid dogs, lest they create more monsters.

      “Posters who are proponents of torture.”

      Yup, read those.

      “Posters who volunteer to inflict unbelievable pain.”

      Read those, too.

      “Posters who never question what or who made this creature the monster he was…”

      I don’t know if that’s germaine in any way, but I can accept that interpretation.

      “All saying,’Kill them all and let god sort them out’…
      There is no hope for this civilization.”

      Now wait the f@#$ right there. Who implied such a thing? Besides Amaury?(And he’s been dead for like eight centuries or something, so I’m sure he didn’t type it on a blog’s comments).

      That’s one ginormous Non Sequitur, right there, that’s what that is.

      But crankylitprof has the right idea.: “A civilized society puts down rabid dogs…”

      While finding out what made this POS a monster might help stop future psychopaths (a strategy best combined with firearms training and ownership), it won’t make sure he never gets out and never does it again if somehow he does.

      Oh, and…

    • Rick R. says:

      Well,

      Given that the concept that an execution should be as painless as possible, so as to avoid “Cruel and unusual punishment” is a purely MODERN concept, I guess there’s more hope for this civilization than in the past.

      Or have you never studied what punishments were NORMAL for rape-murder in the past?

    Another animal gone, good riddence to trash,
    sad part is the time and money it took to put this animal down, It’s time we start holding our legislaters accountable for time issue, seems like we have gone overboard with the length of time to execution, we need to create an expedited system for heinous crimes like this,
    our goverment and court system have gone awry.
    we have a supreme court that runs on symantics and want to introduce european law and their interpretation into our judicial system . isn’t that what our forefathers wanted to flee from? Tryanny

  20. Crotalus says:

    The Old Testament was pretty clear that capital punishment wasn’t only meant to “put down a rabid dog”. It was meant as punishment. Those who say we’re no better than the monsters we execute miss one crucial detail: Man is an eternal creature. He does not cease to exist when he dies. If he is unrepentant, he’ll spend eternity in Hell, where the torture will be far worse than anything we can dream up here, even if we kill him ever so gently.

    This killer was unrepentant to the last, and now it’s too late for salvation. He rode the lightning straight to Hell. Not something I would be gloating about, but he did bring it upon himself.

  21. Windy Wilson says:

    “Posters who are proponents of torture,
    Posters who volunteer to inflict unbelievable pain.”

    You know, the attitude you decry results from the perception that undeserved and unwarranted mercy is shown to the most vicious murderers. People were willing to show mercy in the past when punishment was more sure and it did not approach the routine that people could disappear and be found years later clearly having been murdered but the murderer would be caught and punished only by sheer chance. Nowadays it is a satisfying fantasy to imagine suitable and just punishments and executions for evildoers who will spend their last years warm, dry, well fed, and coddled with exercise rooms, weight equipment, cable tv and prison law libraries (!) for more years than many of their victims were permitted to walk the earth. What should the punishment be for someone who arrogates to himself the privilege of God? The quicker and more painless the death, the less that death is punishment. The softer the life, the less the imprisonment is punishment.

    “Posters who never question what or who made this creature the monster he was .”

    Many people are beaten as children, many people are exposed to firearms, many people watch violent TV and movies, or experience some other less-than-optimal upbringing, but the percentage of each who go on to actually murder someone is so small as to make those purported causes insignificant.
    You would make an excuse and let a murderer free because of something that did not cause many someone elses to murder?

    All saying, “Kill them all and let god sort them out . . .”
    There is no hope for this civilization.

  22. Windy Wilson says:

    All saying, “Kill them all and let god sort them out . . .”

    No one here is saying to kill the innocents along with the guilty, which is what that phrase (a cliche’ as you used it) means.

    I wish they would have remanded him to my custody. A week later I would have had a press conference detailing the results of my findings. And the final adjudication. With Vidio.

  24. perlhaqr says:

    While I am generally more inclined towards the “quick bullet to the back of the head” method of execution over some of the more prolonged methods suggested in this thread, perhaps it would have been best to turn him over to the ministrations of the now 25 year old rape and attempted murder victim.

    One does want the punishment to fit the crime, after all.

  25. Wish I could have been there. I’d have loved to ask him to hold a pan of Jiffy Pop popcorn when the switch was thrown.

    Now THAT would be some tasty popcorn to pass around at the party afterwards.

  26. ol sparky says:

    the “benefit” of keeping sociopathic killers alive to study them is outweighed by society’s need to get them out of the mix. some people are just selfish and evil, they will not stop, and it is a waste of the taxpayers’ money to keep them around not to mention the risk to society of escape/parole. There are better things to spend money on and society can sleep better at night knowing that Ted Bundy is dead. It frosts my ass to know that prisoners can watch TV, shoot pool, and have “conjugal visits”; something that the victims will not enjoy again.
