    But he was 17 when he committed the murders.

    I agree about the life sentence.

    Everyone got what they wanted here..
    He didn't have a right to. He sat catty corner to the judge so he didn't see it and the judge said that had he seen it, he'd have corrected it fast.

    Yeah, I'm wondering how he even had access to that shirt, or access to make that shirt in the first place. It seems that someone wasn't doing their job correctly.

    Doesn't really matter though I guess. It's just a shirt and the kid will (hopefully) never see freedom again.

    There's all kinds of ways to sneak that in. He had that blue blazer that hid it until he sat down. He could've worn it inside out or backwards and flipped it in the bathroom right before he went into court. Meh... As much as he thinks he was getting a dig on on the families, ultimately these are all demons he just made bigger that he made for himself in the future that he will have to deal with. All that time alone with your brain... he won't be able to avoid it while the families will eventually move on with their daily lives. That is a torture he perpetrated on his future self.

    He'll be on 48 hours or 60 minutes or something like that a decade or two from now being confronted with it and we'll see him fall apart trying to figure out who he was and why. It's going to eat him alive. That's if he can survive prison that long.

    What exactly is the exact number of posts before one is classy? I seem to have read quite a few partisan posts by you in this thread. All politics is partisan

    No you didn't.

    1. No all politics isn't partisan
    2. Even if you were right, which you aren't, this isn't a political. It's in the Breaking News forum of this site and it isn't about politics whatsoever. It's about a trial sentencing.

    So now the death penalty is an acceptable punishment for gross stupidity?

Can you put yourself in the position of having committed no crime and still be found guilty and face a death sentence? Or would you simply rationalize that this could never happen to you, since only the grossly stupid could get caugh in such a bind, and you are not grossly stupid?

    As previously discussed, the process of putting a person through a capital trial and subsequent trial, plus the extra cost of having a death row, far exceed the costs of incarcerating a person for life without parole. Reducing the cost would increase the likelihood of convincting people who are not guilty of the crimes as charged.

    It is not deterrant as a threat of punishment to potential criminals. You had to know this is what I meant.

    So far as I'm concerned it always has been an acceptable punishment for gross stupidity.

    Empathy is not something that I have in any significant quantity. If I allow myself to be put into a position where I can't show my lack of guilt, then I'm probably guilty of something stupid enough to deserve getting whacked anyway. I'm not saying it couldn't happen to me; just that I like to think I'm smart enough to stay away from the people, places, and things that would make me likely to have to deal with such issues.

    Which is why I believe these things need to be streamlined.... Expedite the trial, give them one standard appeal (within 60 days of the original verdict), one chance to appeal to the SCOTUS, and once the appeals are exhausted give them 24 hours to prepare themselves to be executed.

    Whether it's a deterent to others or not is mostly immaterial to me. Though I would suggest that violent youth offenders should be made to sit in the front row at these executions just to make sure they know what they have coming if they don't clean their acts up.
