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 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.
Vengeance ain't cheap.
hope he lives to minimally 85 so that he suffers as much loss of freedom as is humanly possible.

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.

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.
