A death isn't worthy of our celebration

It looks like Danny Rolling will be executed for his heinous crimes. I was in Gainesville during the time when this horrible act occurred. It seems absurd to me that the legal process took so long to reach its conclusion!

Nonetheless, I hope for the families involved, that they find some sort of solace for their terrible, irreplaceable losses. I do want to say though, that celebrating someone's death, no mater how deserved, is an unfortunate way to feel. I can never celebrate death. After all, isn't that what Danny Rolling was doing when he committed those unspeakable crimes?
