    All i can say is Watch The Murder Rate Rise. If One knows they wont be puninished for the crime [by a eye for eye punishnent} , Then why not commit the crime. Real bad move Maryland . I hope none of your loved ones or yourself have to experience a loss of someone being murdered to know that the punishment should fit bthe crime. BETTER THINK THIS ONE OVER.
