    Yeah, I'm curious to see him in 10-20 years. I don't know if he'll have any regret and sympathy, but I suspect he'll have a different perspective on the meaning of his actions.

    Re: T.J. Lane Life Sentence

    The kid is small and very young. Up to this point (correct me if I am wrong TD) he has spent his incarceration in county or city lockup. Now that he has been convicted he has probably just within days entered into the state penal system. It is not same, same jail. A young boy in the big house? They are going to be on him like white on rice.

    I'd pay to see how big his eyes get if he were inducted like Shawshank induction day.

    That's the thing about capital punishment, consider this guy, caught virtually red handed and pled guilty, therefore there was no trial. In many cases, a guy who was so dead to rights guilty in a death penalty state would plead out in exchange for a life sentence. So who is going to trial? Many guilty people will absolutely plead not guilty and go to trial, but who else will plead not guilty? People who are not guilty, of course. And of the people who are not guilty, many will be found not guilty, but others will be found guilty. Some innocents will be found guilty because of bad luck and circumstances, some because of poor representation, some because of official corruption.

    I have no moral opposition to killing people who kill, but my opposition to killing an innocent is greater than my desire to see the guilty killed. My acceptance level for killing innocents in order to insure the guilty are killed is zero. So until or unless we can come up with a system with zero defects, I will have to oppose the death penalty.

    As to the argument (from other posts) that keeping the guilty alive is too expensive, I would have to point out that the cost of a capital trial, including mandatory appeals, cost far more than keeping a person incarcerated for 100 years.

    hope he lives to minimally 85 so that he suffers as much loss of freedom as is humanly possible.

    Funny, that people think that executing is cheaper than imprisonment.

    T.J. Lane, who appeared in court Tuesday morning wearing a t-shirt with the word "KILLER" in marker across his chest, will spend the rest of his life in prison for the murder of three teenagers at an Ohio high school.

    Going against the recommendation of his counsel, Lane addressed the courtroom before learning his fate. He smiled periodically and showed little remorse for his actions.

    After shooting three kids to death and paralyzing another at a school in Ohio last year, he will never see freedom again. Not only that, he just turned 18 meaning this tiny little bitch is going to men's prision, not juvy... where they don't take very kindly to others in there who assaulted children.

    What's further appalling is after he heard from his victims' families, he made a comment back to them...

    "This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F--- all of you."




    Man I feel just awful for those families.
    A lot wonder "why" that kid was allowed to display that shirt, you can bet two things 1) the kid wanted to (and he had every right to), and 2) the prosecution wanted him to so he could bury his ass (that or appear insane).

    Everyone got what they wanted here..

    Yes, and worse, when death penalty advocates learn how expensive it is to process someone through the entire capital punishment process, they argue it should be quicker and cheaper.

    So what's THAT going to do to the number of innocents who get fried, injected, gassed, or otherwise terminated?

    One can call themselves a conservative by supporting the death penalty but they certainly can't call themselves fiscal conservatives.

    Really?

    I think some socialists would kill me for being a capitalist. I think some pro-choice groups would murder me for loving life..

    Some of these political gangs will take a life to spare a life...

    So this issue is not as cut and dry as it seems...

    If you want to call bull**** on that I have a name - "Che" Ernesto Guevara - yeah that killer that the peace loving dope-heads run around with on their shirts or tatted on their bodies.
