I think she was ready to die, long before she ever had killed anyone. i think she died long before she evergot that needle. i believe the 4 yearold girl, the untouched, unbroken version of Aileen will be waiting for every soul as inflicted as she was. life was so unkind and you still smiled as long as you could. i also believe nick did a great job of tying up loose ends. and im only sorry aileen didnt get the notion to take her show on a little road trip home and take vengence for all those who broke her in so many ways.... i believe she believed those men would hurt her or others like shed been hurt. like that needed to be done. rip aileem.

This woman, Serial Killer or not, was OBVIOUSLY not competent to be executed. She absolutely deserved to spend the rest of her life in Prison. There's no discussion about that. When a Government starts executing those who are Mentally Ill, are any of us safe?
