Karmen Louise Tobin's curator insight, October 27, 2014 8:48 PM

I agree in certain areas of the Pope, "that life imprisonment is a death sentence" (very true) my perspective is, it's almost like you will live a life long sentence in prison because death is an easy way out for you. This is true. I am a Christian but I do believe whether this be right or wrong that when someone violates a child and when someone is a victim to the sickness of a serial killer and takes someone's life I feel this sentence is appropriate.
