DeSantis about Parkland school shooter: Legal system is not serving the interest of victims
Gov. Ron DeSantis expressed his disappointment in the jury’s recommendation to sentence Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland school shooter, to life in prison.
DeSantis said: “I just want to say one thing about this verdict with the Parkland killer: I think that if you have a death penalty at all then that is a case where you’re massacring those students with premeditation in utter disregard for basic humanity that you deserve the death penalty and so the jurors came back apparently it was 11 to one with one holdout refusing to authorize the ultimate punishment, and that means that this killer is gonna end up getting the same sentence of people who’ve committed bad acts, but acts that did not rise to this level”.
“I just don’t think anything else is appropriate except the capital sentence in this case and so I was very disappointed to see that. I’m also disappointed that were 4 1/2 years after these killings and we’re just now getting this, you know they used to do this he would have been executed in six months, he’s guilty, everybody knew that from the beginning and yet it takes years and years and this legal system that is not serving the interests of victims so I am very disappointed”.
