    Death penalty isn't a deterrent. There will always be more mentally ill idiots who want to do this kind of crap.

    James Holmes doesn't seem to want to go to the gas chamber. He already knew that the chances of getting the death penalty were slim.

    That's right and that will be the case, no matter how many gun control laws are passed.

    So he was OK with killing other innocent folks, but he does not want to die himself!

    What a crock of irony.
    I hope they ignore his plea deal and punish him to the fullest extent of the law.Someone like him should get the death penalty.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Less than 5% of murders are committed that could be deemed as suffering from mental illness.
    And that doesn't count how many of that 5% commit suicide.

    The bewilderment he displayed in court definitely looks like he could be mentally ill.
    Be kind to everyone

    The death penalty is an absolute deterrent to at least one individual.

    Actually in many of these recent rampages all the guns were acquired legally. Gun control would work.

    The new laws wouldn't have stopped the shooters from getting guns. How will gun control work?

    There's no way to stop them getting the guns, nor going on the rampage.
