Too bad they don't have firing squads. That would be ironic.
And now here come the automatic appeals. Going to take awhile before anything of substance happens.
I know some people are going to disagree with him being put to death, but I'm sorry the guy deserves it. He's fucking evil, saying he wasn't sorry and was glad to do it. Given he stated he wasn't insane and decided to defend himself, he essentially was asking to be put to death.
No great loss.
And he only had to suffer through testimony of the victims to get to this point. I wish he was sentenced to life in prison just so he wouldn't be granted the satisfaction of getting what he wanted.
Wooo lets make him a martyr for his delusional cause.
Justice is served!
I'm usually against the death penalty but in cases where it's clear the person can't be reformed, I'm unsure what to think.
I don't condone this sort of behaviour
All I see is taxpayer money going down the toilet. By the time he's executed we'll all have forgotten who he was, and it likely won't even make the news. He may be human trash, but now he's expensive human trash.
Now to wait 10 years and waste millions of dollars fighting appeals.
Is it really wise to waste lots of taxpayer money on the execution process for this scumbag when it's far cheaper just to leave them to rot and be forgotten? Not to mention you can put them to work and offset a lot of the costs involved in housing them. It kinda just makes more economical sense this way from what I understand.
I mean sure revenge and all that but how much is revenge worth, is it right for the general public to pay for someone's revenge? It's fine for the taxpayers to pay for the judicial system to keep them safe and again, from what I can gather keeping him locked the fuck up is the cheaper option so there's that.
Honestly I'm not sold on capital punishment and I doubt I ever will regardless of circumstance.
Why is taxpayer money seemingly always everyones only concern when it comes to prisoner treatment
Before we start debating the ethics of this situation, I suggest everyone read this part.
He wants to martyr, and he also wants to be pardoned. No matter what you do, its going to be bad.
Kill him, and he dies as a martyr and you give him what he wants. He won't suffer, but hey it's the Death Penalty.
Spare him, and he suffers as a metaphorical martyr. You don't give him what he wants, and it's likely that he will never change, and only suffer through life feeling bad for himself.
imagine being so stupid that you think this guy deserves to live.
