Was there any justice for Matthew Chew? All the members that participated in the killing got a plea bargain, did Matthew Chew get a bargain? Whatever happened to the death penalty or better yet the chain gang?

I'm tired of paying for people who have committed horrendous crimes. They get three free meals, heat, clothes, carpeted cells as well as other amenities.

My prayers go out to the Chew family for all their pain and suffering. May God bless you.
