I do not like the federal government getting into the affairs of the state courts, plain and simple. The Terry Shivo case should have been a private affair between the spouse and his wife according to Florida law; I do not like the idea of the government deciding my or my family's fate. We have a clear understanding of what the others would want (now we have it in writing as well) these new verdicts are only slightly different in the way that justice was probably not served. When a Judge makes a decision they must be held to the punishment fitting the crime rule, many are not. But it's up to the state to rectify the problem, if they do not they have to live with the consequences.
