I applaud Gov. Paul LePage for his recent comments about injecting traffickers with their own medicine, reinstituting the death penalty, and bringing back the guillotine. I’ve been saying it for years in letters to the editor — Maine should bring back the death penalty for certain crimes, and like LePage said, “I don’t care which way they do it,” either.

There’s no excuse, rehabilitation or forgiveness for what many convicted criminals have done to their victims and families, and they should receive the ultimate punishment — death.
