To the Editor:
On Dec. 21, 2013, I read an article in the Morning Journal about a Cleveland man admitting to raping children and killing two women. Since he pleaded guilty to 297 counts, including murdering the women and kidnapping and raping children, he will get two, 20-years to life sentences. This is outrageous!

And another atrocity: the authorities responsible for giving these types of people a life sentence should be put on Death Row themselves for allowing killers and rapists to spend life in prison at the taxpayers’ expense.

Our prisons should go back to the old standards as a punishment for the actions of criminals, not the luxury hotels they have become: three free meals a day, TV and activities, workout facilities, free medical and dental care, etc., again, at our expense.

One other thought: our rights as stated in our preamble of the Constitution are: Of the people, by the people and for the people, so how does Obama and our government have the right or power to force insurance coverage on us, the people, and yet give insurance and free money to foreigners and illegal immigrants at the people’s expense? This insurance issue should be voted on by the people and every vote counted!

Our government and Obama are supposed to be for the people, not against the people.
