    I assume that you all want him to get the death penalty.

    This guy deserves the death penalty. Letting him live isn't enough.

    I don't like the death penalty, it feels like he would get off to easily more like he should suffer for a good 40 years, but prison is to much like a hotel for a guy like this, I'd like something like send him live in isolation in a frozen tundra, a dessert, I don't care as long as its bad.

    Hopefully he does. Life in prison is a joke. There are many good people losing their homes, struggling day to day just to find good, to simply survive; and such heinous criminals go to prison, getting a set number of guaranteed meals a day, they have a roof over their heads, many can get educations, have a job, while not making much, get paid, all on OUR tax dollars. It's a joke that they could CONSIDER life in prison, where the most they have to deal with is beatings, shankings, or [censored]; when their victims don't have the pleasure of fearing something like that. Let the bastard burn in an electric chair, doesn't sound like he deserves the easy way out with lethal injection.

    Okay so it is pretty much unanimous he should die.

    my opinion,they don't gain nothing out of killing someone for killing other someones
    it's not like they are coming back to life

    And here, we once again hit a moral crossroads. By wishing death upon a man who killed others, are we truly better? Sure, you can say you didn't pull the trigger, poor the gasoline, molest, I don't particularly care what you may insert there. What you are doing though, is helping to move a mentality that a man should die. By supporting it, strength is given to that opinion, and it gains its own momentum. I don't particularly know what to say. I won't wish death upon another, but I certainly don't think he deserves prison as the system is laid out now. You can say prison is a joke, but no matter how you look at it, human and civil rights have to be obeyed.

    A quote I've always liked for this type of situation:
    "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."

    I see your point, but look at the alternative. Letting him live on the tax dollars of people whom don't kill and [censored], letting him grow old and live a simple, easy life while so many struggle for what he's given for killing people.

    Oh I don't care about morality. I just don't believe he should die by government hands, there should be a prison brawl, give them all knifes or guns or something. Make it interesting. Plus it saves tax dollars.

    A considerable number of people have been found not guilty after their execution. As far as I'm concerned 1 innocent person getting the death penalty is too many.

    Justice in America is abused and meaningless. If anybody still knew how to deliver it, some justice would actually go around every now and again.

    And yet here we are, spending tax dollars on taking care of him until execution, tax dollars on the execution, tax dollars to catch him, tax dollars to detain him, tax dollars for his trial, etc. Can't really win where money is concerned.

    to be honest i think its payback, but if you think about if you were to be put in the spot of taking someones life away i won't do it. the death penalty is murder, torture the guy at the most.
