Yeah, lets do it 3 three days on Good Friday. Or would that be in poor taste? I'm a little hazy on Christian execution etiquette.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Meh. All citizens have that right, even the worst ones. I'd rather this guy get a trial and not need it over people who need a trial not getting one.

I've admitted many times that instances like this are a challenge for me personally. I understand what my Faith asks me to do in this situation, but cannot seem to conquer the impulse to want to see this 'man' be executed in the same manner in which he cold heart killed that defenseless little three month old baby.

I actually feel more safe living in a society where people aren't executed after someone reads a news clipping about them and what they supposedly did.

I hear ya, could feel the same way, and am offering no defense for this person/situation.  The problem is, where is the line drawn?  What should be deemed do-not-pass-go/no-trial/go-straight-to-the-hangman?  Your line might be different than your neighbours.  The rules/laws/processes are there for a reason.  Lynch mobs didn't work, and you're essentially advocating for a 'new-age' way of bypassing judge and jury.

Totally get it and agree....the hypothetical line would be different for everyone. But this dude would fall beneath anyone of those.

there's no 'supposed' with this person. He admitted to the police what he did. Even said that after he had buried the defenseless little babies head in the mattress first to kill it..when he flipped it over thinking it was dead and then the little baby started to take breaths to keep living....he then covered its nose and mouth suffocating it. No supposedly....no speculation as to 'maybe this happened'...it did...dude should have to prove his innocence in court and when he can't he should be immediately killed.

If it truly is "beyond a reasonable doubt", it should be a quick process.
