Any murder, no matter how quickly, suddenly, or painlessly it is done, deserves the death penalty.
But as we approach the execution of Elijah Page, we should look at just how depraved the three who killed Chester Allan Poage were.
KELO features an excerpt from Elijah Page's confession:
Investigator: "Were you laughing?"
Page: "We chuckled. We weren't really laughing, but let out little chuckles. 'Ha ha,' you know?"
Then they started kicking... And kicking.. And kicking.
"I looked at Darrell. I said, man, my foot hurts. I can't kick anymore," Page says.
