    Feds Seek Death Penalty for Boston Bombing Suspect Tsarnaev

    Feds seek death penalty for Boston bombing suspect Tsarnaev - CNN.com

    If there is going to be a federal death penalty, this case deserves it.

    Eric Holder apparently made the call

    the bombing ended up killing three and injuring more than 250.

    There are 70 on Federal death row, but there have only been 3 executions. The last one was in 2003.

    The DOJ had not choice, it was a loophole. The bomber doesn't have the same loophole.

    It wasn't a loophole for Texas, we executed the murdering bastard anyway.

    I can think of ways to lower the deficit... hold a lottery for the right to push the button that detonates the C4 attached to this guys ass, as he sits chained to a chair in the desert. $10 a ticket, no limit on number you can buy. That'd raise quite a bit I think.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Fail... Because it's not about guilt, innocence but about $20,000,000 in tax payer money being paid to donors (lawyers) to the regime.

    Personally? His crimes don't shake my opposition to the death penalty. Executing him serves no purpose and will accomplish no end. The families lives cannot be made whole or healed by his limp execution on a prison gurney anymore than they can by his imprisonment. His execution will only serve to perpetuate a method of sentencing that is not only expensive, non-productive, and quite frankly barbaric but also has a deep and serious impact on our criminal justice system in innumerable ways not limited to its use as a cudgel in plea negotiations which we know has sent many innocent people to prison for life.

    Abolish the death penalty, entomb Tsarnaev in some federal dungeon if need be, and reform the criminal justice system. Least, that's what I'd like to see happen.
