Even if they catch the guy, it's California, and he'll probably just get probation.

Anyone who is against the death penalty should watch this video. Since there was clearly no motive for the crime (the murderer does not go through the guy's pockets, he walks away nonchalantly, he does not hit him more than once, he does not check to see if the guy is down for the count, etc), it seems like a case of "Hey, I'm holding a bat. I should hit this guy." If we start actually punishing criminals with penalties that are hard, maybe they'll think twice. Maybe it will be "Hey, I'm holding a bat. I should hit this guy. But they'll kill me if I do, so maybe I shouldn't."

And while we're on the subject of death penalty, states really need to stop spending money on electric chairs and chemical cocktails. We need to start killing criminals in the manner they killed their victims. Torturers, rapist/murderers, etc would REALLY think twice if they had to face the same thing their twisted minds came up with.
