Pros and cons of prison suicides

Obviously, this is in reference to Ariel Castro, the nut-job that held three young women prisoner in his house for ten years.

My partner is bummed that he won't serve all that time. I'm pleased that no one has to pay for him to serve all that time and he didn't go free.

I see his point. The guy deserved to suffer. His victims deserved more justice. I'm pretty sure the guy hadn't even had any prison rape.

But with the rising cost of incarceration and the whimsy of our judicial system, at least this provides the whole affair with some very affordable, if not perfectly satisfying, closure. I am a big fan of closure.

Either way, he's dead, Jim.
