Janae Rensch's curator insight, May 9, 2013 9:19 PM

The Supreme Court in Arizona has approved two inmates to be on death row. One raped and murdered a woman and the other robbed then killed a college student. A 49-year-old, Samuel Lopez will be executed on May 16, and a 63-year-old Thomas Kemp will be executed April 26. If the executions go through Arizona will be on pace to be the busiest with executions this year.

Janae Rensch's comment, May 9, 2013 9:21 PM
Seven people is a lot of people to kill in a year but if their crimes are cruel and terrible then they should receive it. It was not very nice to rape and then kill the woman who probably did nothing to him. I don't see how people can just do that to other people, how is that fun or how does it feel to sit in prison all the time with no life? I definitely think the one man who raped and then killed the woman deserves the death penalty.
