Carlie Bruscia's Murderer Is Condemned

Carlie Bruscia, 11, whose abduction was caught on a car wash surveillance camera (above), was kidnapped, raped and murdered by Joseph P. Smith.

Today, the judge in Sarasota FL sentenced the animal Smith to life imprisonment for the kidnapping and the rape; and to death as the jury recommended, 10-2, for the murder.

Smith begged for his life, saying he would be a positive influence on his three daughters.

Ya think?

Meanwhile, Carlie's Mom developed a severe drug addiction and she resorted to prostitution to pay for it. She is now serving time.

I think that we need to change the way death penalties are administered. It is cruel to keep the condemned on ice for 15 to 20 years, while he or she learns enough law to keep delaying things with one appeal after another, right up to the end. New rule: the bad guy has to file all of the appeals BEFORE he is sentenced. (Hey, how about BEFORE he even commits the crime?!) Then, on the day of sentencing, if he hasn't been pardoned, he gets whacked before sundown.

Cruel and unusual? I think not. He killed little Carlie pretty much that way, after four days of unspeakable depravity.

Oh, and don't worry, Joe: your death will have a VERY beneficial effect on your family. Trust me on this.

    That videotape breaks my heart. I can't imagine losing a child.

    Me, too, Brenda. I feel particularly sorry for her Mom. That's a kind of hell that Joe will never experience, until he winds up in Hell.

    He needs to be wiped from the face of the planet.....I wish the punishment he receive would fit the crime....no mercy only suffering for this cold piece of crap.
