It's About Time

Texas executed Peter Anthony Cantu tonight for two murders committed back in 1993. He, along with fellow gang members, raped, tortured and murdered 16-year-old Elizabeth Pena and 14-year old Jennifer Ertman. Here's a brief description,
In what police later would describe as a sadistic frenzy, the girls were gang-raped for more than an hour. They were forced to perform oral sex. They were kicked, teeth knocked out and hair pulled out and ribs broken. A red nylon belt, with an attacker tugging at each end, was pulled so tightly around Ertman's neck the belt snapped. Shoelaces were used to strangle Pena. Evidence showed Cantu kicked one of the girls in the face with his steel-toed boot.
He should have been executed years ago. But better late than never. Good riddance.
