    Thankfully, real trash like this guy tend to get taken out by their fellow inmates a good deal of the time.

    If it was someone I knew, or a member of my family I'd be happy to throw the switch to remove them from society.

You also have to remember that I have exceptionally little regard for human life; which I find to be slightly less worthwhile than most single-celled organisms.

How many of those 140 people had NEVER been involved with the law before they were arrested for the crime they were wrongly convicted of? I'd suggest that number is less than two.
    I am sorry, but you get sentenced for a specific act, not for the other crimes you may or may not have committed. And even if they committed other offenses, if they are innocent of the things they were convicted of they were sentenced or executed wrongly.

    No it's called Timmy's law, actually it's not law, it's justice served! The way I see it it's win-win. The perps will still be evil, and no amount of punishment is going to deter the likes of this guy and recent events in VT, but the likelihood that these perps off themselves rather than being subjected to public torture is a great benefit to our society. We save on incarcerating them, and or putting them to death the nice way. I don't see a downside, do you?

    He needs to be finished.
    Yeah...I feel the same way...there's a small sliver of individuals that includes folks like this guy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy etc of folks where the death penalty is actually humane? They are just "broken" individuals.

    Thank you, Arete. Hell, I'll be the first to decline the appeals and head staight for the chair if it were to ever happen to me.

    [QUOTE=Peter King;1061591333]I am sorry, but ever heard of due diligence? Or the right for due process?

    I've heard of both, and I believe they have become so completely bastardized in this system as to really have no value anymore.

    The sentence for any violent felony should be DEATH. No need for the judge to choose. Give them one appeal (which must be heard within 30 days), allow them to appeal to SCOTUS afterwards if they want. The moment the appeals are exhausted or declined, the 24 hour clock starts ticking.

    T.J. Lane Life Sentence

    Didn't the US Supreme Court just recently (within the past year or so) rule against juveniles being sentenced to life terms? Maybe I'm mistaken, but if not I wouldn't be surprised to see this sentence get overturned, unfortunately.

    I think the life sentence is even better than the death penalty, although I don't oppose the death penalty at all. Death is the easy way out. I'd rather watch a POS like this squirm for decades.

    I believe someone said he turned 18 so he was sentenced as an adult. A life sentence is preferable, maybe we can see some Shawshank style revenge.
