As the verdicts come through, it looks like they are calling guilty on all of them... 1-18 so far.
I'd like to pull the trigger myself.
His lawyers openly stated they know he's guilty, it's going to be about life in prison or death penalty.
(I don't think we should have the death penalty at all, so we know where I fall on that).
I have mixed feelings about the death penalty.
I forgot about all this stuff
Took em long enough.
Well if he believes his ultimate reward is in heaven, give him life.
And remind him everyday that he killed his own brother.
If he wants life in prison then I have no issues with the death penalty.
I think the death penalty is in order to show his parents what abysmal failures they were to society.
Let his mother live everyday with a hatred , anger and a sense of knowing that WE the people made your family pay the ultimate price for killing innocent people. Hopefully she will die consumed with the death of her sons and know that her life was a waste.
Hopefully his father and mother will get a front row seats to watch his death.
I hope she lets out a guttural primal scream that only the most broken hearted know.
I hope that his body is burned and that he is scattered in various places so his family cannot make a shrine or even have a place to mourn. :
But hey, this is just my opinion.
That's not justice. That's revenge, pure and simple.
ed: yeah, I know that's your opinion and you're 100% allowed to hold that position.
What benefit is there to keeping him alive though? He won't be reformed, he won't ever be released, and it's costing money to keep someone who serves no societal purpose alive for what reason exactly? He's a waste of space that we don't even really have to begin with.
I don't think the death penalty should ever be taken lightly, but if there's anyone who currently earned it, it's this guy.
Thanks for the input, Texas
It costs as least as much to keep him on death row (I think it's actually quite a lot more), and there's a good chance he could still be there for decades at least.
Also that we don't need blood on the state's hands, too. Killing him does nothing except make us feel better - it's revenge. It won't do anything to bring the victims back.
What's the difference between revenge and punishment? I think some would view life in prison as revenge as well. I'm curious what your logic is in this regard and I'm not attacking you in any way. Just curious.
Justice and revenge are what the parents and the families that were hurt will get.
It's also what the people of Boston will get for having their city turned into marshall law.
Did we give Osama Justice or serve him revenge?
I think we served 2 causes. Even though they should not go hand in hand, sometimes you serve both masters by doling out the other.
Not sure what Texas has to do with this???
I'm not from Texas so what's your point?
Ohhhhh you were trying to insinuate something about me personally because of where I live. That's extremely original.
I'll guess it's safe to assume because your from D.C that you smoke crack , murder people are corrupt and self serving.
But then again that's a stereotype, so I wont.
He's already tried, been found guilty, and will never be a free man again. Why do we also need to spill his blood?
Revenge looks to explicitly inflict suffering in turn for suffering experienced, or to take from another what one has had taken. It demands causing harm.
If they don't put the guy in some kind of special prison he's gonna get killed anyway.
Prison is already over-crowded. And as someone pointed out, he won't be free among the incarcerated masses because he would be killed by other inmates, so a specialty facility for him (count the $$$).
Don't fill another cell with this guy. The federal death penalty exists for this very reason: mass murder.
Which speaks to the horrible, horrible state of our prison system, not the validity of the death penalty.
Are you talking about free to move around in the confines of the prison?
They oughta duct tape his ankles and wrists together, pull his pants down and toss him in with the rapists.
Good evening Murica, who / what is this thread about? The Boston maraton thingy?
With our system as it is, putting him into a supermax gen pop would be the best solution. Death penalty is expensive long process with mandatory appeals etc., life in prison is stupid because this guy is a waste of space, really the most practical way that our gov't can kill this dude would be to put him in with a bunch of killers to do our dirty work for us. I am pretty sure they used to do this to get rid of kiddy diddlers all the time didn't they? I don't see why they can't do it for boston bomber
