I think living in prison without any chance of parole would be more fitting. Let them know each day of their lives what it feels like to be held against their will and fear. This way they get off to easy. I am not sure how much of a deterrent is the death penalty. Sad to say, these men are getting the death penalty for the woman's death and the world's attention, not because of the rampant rape and groping that goes on throughout the country. What is happening with the other rapists?

Finally, in one of the many countries where women are treated worse than an animal...there was justice. This is a step in the right direction for the very souls who bare life. I just hope the justice system will continue to improve and those who harass, torment, rape, and murder will pay for their sickening actions.
