    The appropriate penalty for such a severe heinous crime:

     

    FOURTY YEARS IN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR

    I understand that it is a federal crime but it was the people of Massachusetts who were attacked and he should be tried with our harshest penalty life in prison.

    Kind of ironic, yes.  But REALLY ironic the other way.  Because the people support a womans right to choose dont seeabortion on the same moral scale as murder.  One can agree or disagree with this moral position.  But, if you are trying to point out true irony, it is from the opposite side, who DO look at abortion as murder.  The crossover is large in the ven diagram of those that support murder as a form of criminal punishment and yet stand morallyopposed to murder in the form of abortion.  That is irony.

    [/QUOTE]


      Of course, this is a controversial topic. Everyone has their own opinion on it.  As for me, I value the life of an unborn innocent far more than the life of a vicious predator. I see abortion as murder. I see the execution of a murderer as justice. I don't find anything ironic about that.  If a compromise was necessary to resolve the argument , I would agree to end both capital punishment and abortion. I seriously doubt that the other side would agree to that compromise.

    Don't feed him anything and let him starve to death unless he is willing to eat hot dogs, sausages, ribs, pork chops etc. and wash it down with beer, wine etc. These items, of course, are forbidden by Allah.

    But give him a choice if he wishes to die quicker than starvation, do as the Calabrian Mafia has done with traitors,   let him be eaten alive by staving wild pigs.


    If many consider this cruel and unusual punishment, think of Muslim terrorist beheadings while victim is alive and also  dragging the bodies of our troops through the streets or hanging them from bridges.

    I agree with you. My objection to the death penalty is that the justice system is imperfect and mistakes can be made. It is impossible to give an innocent man back his life.

     

    In this case, I understand the desire to end this man's life. His guilt is as close to obvious as you can get and his crime is particularly heinous. Perhaps a selective death penalty? But even then, can we always be sure that justice will be done? I'd rather err on the side of caution than satisfy the public's emotional desire for blood, as understandable as it may be.

    Re: Death penalty sought against Boston Marathon bomber

    I'm generally opposed to the death penalty for fear of executing the wrong person, but as someone said in an earlier post, this guy is as obviously guilty as one can be.  He's guilty of three things - killing innocent people, maiming innocent people, and at least as important from a societal sandpoint, llike all terrorists, he's guilty of forever disrupting the way of life we treasure.  When Patriot's day comes next year and we have to have our backpacks searched and there's limited access to the finish line, whether he's dead or alive, he wins. 

    I'm all for executing him but not because I want for him to pay for what he did with his life.  I want him executed so he can live in prison knowing WHEN he will die, counting down the days, knowing exactly when, where and how it will happen.

    something is only "unusual" because it is not the norm. I'm not an advocate for replacing the current methods of capital punishment with death by PH imbalance but it's the worst death i can think of and fitting for this type of scum.

    Capital punishment is the issue I lean to the right the most with. Murderers, rapists and child molesters. round 'em all up and wipe 'em off the face of the earth if you ask me. Of course thats assuming the alleged person has no chance of being innocent (overwhelming evidence like video/audio, multiple eye-witness accounts, admission of guilt etc.) The method of ridding the earth of people like this is up for debate... I'd probably go with death by hanging though. cheap and effective. Minimal suffering too which is more than they deserve.

    Yes, boat stain. 

    Normally, I strongly support reinstituting the firing squad and more frequent death penalty verdicts. 

    But this low-life, excrement deserves something much more ruthless and horrific.

    I vote for the wild pigs tearing him to pieces as they waterboard him with sulfuric acid.  I would want the pigs to start with his testicles.

    He can join his brother (speed bump) in hell - being tortured for all eternity.

    If I were able to swap no capital punishment to you for no abortions after 22 weeks I'd bite your hand off.  In fact, it's the viability issue that I make a stand on - it's a complex, emotional and increasingly scientific issue.  Have you/your partner(s) never used a barrier/timing/pill/abstinence (oof!) to avoid contraception?  If not, I can only write, again, "oof" and hope your theoretical children have a stronger sex drive.

    I think the advent of ultrasound technology belies the idea of the fetus being just a lifeless blob of tissue. The political phonies who pander for votes will go along with anything. Even the horror of late term " partial birth" abortions. Abstinence has nothing to do with the debate. I am not a zealot. I have no problem with birth control. But when there is clear evidence of a developing life in the womb, to abort that life is murder. That is my belief. I could care less about the life of scum who deliberately plant bombs to kill innocent people .

    Yeah, I could probably slide to the right on the issue of capital punishment, especially now that I have a daughter.  Anyone harm her and I would kill that person myself.  So, i get it.  But, the issue of 100% certainty in our justice system, particularly when talking about poor people on trial, makes it a non-starter for me.

    True.  Plus it's not a deterrent and it diminishes us all.  I'm not soft on crime, I'm hard on crime.  I just care about society.  Life without parole in tough but legal prison with limited access to amenities is a tough penalty....and the worst we should give.

    Not to mention that the cost to the tax payer to kill someone, strangely, is stepper than keeping them in prison for life.

    Anti-DP arguments appeal to both the socially liberal and fiscally conservative parts of my brain.

    Certainly, there are some crimes that are simply so heinous that the world will be a better place when the perpetrator is no longer breathing. But the possibility of executing an innocent person should be enough, IMO, that the practice should be used very seldom, if at all.
