Words Fail

…at times like these.

The Ohio Supreme Court on Wednesday reversed the death penalty for a man who strangled and stomped a 76-year-old man during a robbery, saying the killer’s chaotic childhood with abusive parents outweighed the brutality of the crime.
The 4-3 opinion noted that Troy Tenace, 44, expressed remorse when he confessed to police in 1994 and that if he receives the maximum sentence, he won’t be eligible for parole until age 96.
The justices were unanimous in upholding Tenace’s conviction for robbing and killing Chester Kozlowski on Jan. 28, 1994, in his Toledo home. Tenace robbed Kozlowski because the older man paid him in cash earlier for chimney repairs. The man had been gagged and strangled, and had extensive facial injuries from being stomped with heavy boots.

Well, sh*t, he was an old man anyway, right? How old them judges?
Just curious when your life crosses the line into “not as worthy”.
