Jessie Dotson Goes to Death Row for First Degree Murder in the Lester Street Massacre [VIDEO]

Villagers may recall that this blog provided the horrific details of the Lester Street Massacre that took place March 2008 in Memphis, TN. Jessie Dotson was arrested in connection with the deaths of six people, including two children.

He had his day in court. Villagers can view the full video of his 74 minutes testimony or the news clip version (shown below):





The jury in his trial found him guilty on six counts of first degree murder and another three counts of first degree attempted murder in the attacks on three children who survived the massacre. Some of the surviving children testified against their "Uncle Junior" in the 10-day trial that concluded earlier today. [SOURCE]

The judge told Jessie Dotson that he would die by lethal injection, concluding with the single comment, "May God to have mercy on Dotson's soul."

This blog has been known to fight against the death penalty in the past. However, we will not have any protest to the lethal injection taking place for Jessie Dotson. He is truly an evil man who forfeited his human rights when he went on his murderous Lester Street rampage two years ago.

Then you agree with me:

The death penalty ought to be used very very rarely, but the possibility should still not be taken off the books.

Chris - Yes, I agree with using the death penalty as you suggest. I don't think it should be used on mentally-challenged people or when there is some doubt...

He needs to be dead. And he will be going to hell.

Shaka Ayler - I agree...
