Road Rage Murder

From Crime Watch PA:

The West Goshen Police Department and the Chester County District Attorney's Office continue their investigating of the homicide of Bianca Nikol Roberson, 18, of West Chester, PA.

On June 28, 2017, at approximately 5:30 p.m., law enforcement initially responded to a report of a serious automobile accident in the area of Route 100, just north of Route 202, that resulted in the death of Bianca Nikol Roberson, who was operating a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu.  Subsequent investigation revealed that Roberson suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

Law Enforcement have been interviewing numerous witnesses to the incident and have been reviewing several sources of video surveillance of the roadway and surrounding area.  Law Enforcement are requesting assistance with locating a red, possibly Chevrolet, pickup truck that was involved in the road rage incident with Bianca Roberson's vehicle and was seen fleeing from the scene.  The truck was last seen exiting Route 202 southbound, at Paoli Pike.  The driver of the truck is described as a white male, 30-40 years of age, blonde hair, and a medium build.  The West Goshen Police along with the Chester County District Attorney's Office continue to follow-up on multiple leads in the investigation.

This is one of the worst things I have ever heard.
Catch him today,
death penalty tomorrow.

“I should be glad to abolish both
[public executions and capital punishment]
if I knew what to do with the Savages of civilization.

As I do not, I would rid Society of them, when they shed blood,
in a very solemn manner but would bar out the present audience”
(Slater, 249)

He surrendered and is safely in custody.

I would be interested to hear if everyone agrees with Adamakis that this a "worst of the worst" kind of killing that demands the death penalty.

I will take a contrarian early view on this to say it is premature to call for the death penalty if convicted. At the risk of sounding like an apologist, we need more details of the "cat and mouse" game that preceded the killing.

Assuming no prior record, Life in Prison seems sufficient for what may have been a crime of the moment and not premeditated.

This was an evil act--his life should be forfeit.

The ‘worst of the worst’ standard is not mine.

One suspects that whoever murders your child suddenly becomes
the worst of the worst to you.

[My previous quote was of Charles Dickens,
the champion of the downtrodden,
but apparently not of the slayer.]
