Baseline Killer & 2 Serial Shooters – glad that Andrew Thomas is the prosecutor

County Attorney Andrew Thomas is featured on the front of the Arizona Republic today announcing that Baseline Killer Mark Goudeau has been indicted on 74 more counts. With three serial murderers loose in Phoenix this past year or so, I have to say it’s been easier to sleep at night knowing that they will be punished to the full extent of the law by Thomas – no soft sentences. (no offense intended to Democratic Mayor Phil Gordon or Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris, who have done a fine job as well, but do not have the tough as nails record of Thomas) Thomas came into office pledging to be a tough as nails prosecutor and has proven to be. There was a study published in American Law & Economics Review in 2003 which found that every execution of a criminal deters 17 murders from happening.
