I know how this forum is obsessed with the whole death sentence thing.

So, do you agree?

I believe he should. I believe if you take more then two lives and found guilty. You should be sent to the injection chair. You waste money,you waste time. You took more lives then what your own is worth. Why should you live? What about those you took? Sure,it won't bring them back...He still should.

The faux patriot in me wants to say good, kill the bastard.

The me who is the same age as this guy wants to say damn, sentenced to death so young. Like I can't imagine someone telling me today they were stick a needle in me and kill me when I'm 21/22. But then again, I didn't blow up innocent kids and people so....

There's no right answer honestly.

Better than a terrorist living off of tax payers money in a lush prison cell for the rest of his life.

Plus when you try to kill a bunch of strangers with bombs you kind of sign yourself up to be ready to be killed yourself.

I agree with the second poster. He took more lives than he is worth and therefor should forfeit his own as payment for that. Someone who willingly kills strangers for no good reason does not deserve to live. I dont care how you try to rationalize it.

Meh while im against the death penalty cant say ill feel sorry for him. Doesnt make the death penalty right by any means just means I cant find any pity in my heart for him. From an ethical standpoint I dont think he should die. From a personal standpoint im neutral.

I heard it cost more tax to actually carry out a death sentence though. Also he wouldn't be living in a lush cell, he'd be in this 23 hours a day.



Or does you still have your stance?

I had long concluded that this was nearly inevitable, and I see that suspicion was correct. I still think it's a mistake and risks making him into a martyr, but the sentence is applicable and the court went with it. We'll see.

Still have my stance.

My country used to hang people, which costed like 5 dollars lol. I dont know the cost of injections.. I dont know why they dont just hang people to be honest.

I dont know, I just can't stand the thought of people like that getting to live out the rest of their lives while innocent people were murdered in cold blood.

Since the reinstatement of the federal death penalty in 1988, 74 have been sentenced to death but only 3 have been executed. Its a stinking life sentence, he will likely never be put to death.

They really shouldn't have sentenced him to death. It's too easy of a way out for him instead of staying in a small box for the rest of life while he has to live with it. It cost too much as well to sentence to death.

The death penalty is appropriate in this case, IMO.

The procedural problem with the death penalty should not completely decide what the appropriate punishment is.
