Yeah. I say that because he's not coming after me.

No, I don't think that way. Regular communication is involved.
If someone is executed by the state, or hanged by a posse, or guillotined, then their lives have
been ended, quite permanently.
If a remorseless killer does so and says he did it because he thought he would not be killed,
then that kind of criminal should be executed.
