Re: “Opinion: Tim Kaine Owes Virginia an Explanation About Jens Soering

i live in bedford county, va. sure across the county, not on the 'good' side where this happened. at the time in the county we had more killings and more people on death row than anywhere in the state. and only one reason, the county prosecuter wanted to be a judge. people who normally would get the life(20 years max/ then parole) here got the death penalty. and anyone getting 2 life sentences would get to serve them concurrently. but, the county attorney wanted to be judge and drove as hard as he could for the longest terms possible. knowing bedford county will have to pay for it all for the full 40 years. this was a fancy show trial lots of hoopla. for instance my wife's great uncle was shotgunned to death in his home by fiends of his and all they got was 20 years. but only 2 of the four that did it were prosecuted. the other 2 i can possibly meet at the local building supply or grocery store at any time. this was selective high profile, something careers can be made from. there are crimes in this county that have never been solved because they don't get media attention or won't get the kind they want. send this guy to the fatherland and be rid of him.
