    Proper sentence and it should be carried out quickly after the appeal is heard. Look up how the assassin who killed Mayor Cermak of Chicago was dealt with in 1933. Now that was the death penalty without ten years of nonsense attached to it.

    Give this man the opportunity to file an appeal and have all the issues heard at that time. If the appeal fails - then execute him.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    What is ludicrous is that anyone would claim to know for certain it does not. I wouldn't care in any case, because I also support it on other grounds.

    I clearly stated that I was not a fan of the death penalty and to elaborate it is specifically because too many, for my liking have been executed who were innocent. I also stated that for cases such as this one where the guilt is irrefutable I am for it. What is the point of appeals in such a case?

    That's pretty much my take as well. US Conservative will attempt to frame your comment, however, as hating America or being soft on terrorism.

    I always point out that there are actually two types of deterrence, general and specific. Specific relates to deterring the convict himself, general is more about deterring everyone else. It probably doesn't serve general deterrence, any more than any prison term or sentence does because people rarely concern themselves with possible consequences when engaged in criminal conduct, but it is the only 100% foolproof method of specific deterrence when carried out. I think I have yet to have an anti-DPer actually address that.

    So my guess is Sister Helen Prejean's testimony to play on the sentimental feelings of the jury didn't work as lethal injection will be in this bastards future. He'll be most likely transported to a supermax, spending 23 and 1/2 hours in his cell while his lawyer no doubt will start the grind of appeals. Hopefully within a relatively short decade and a half - he'll get the needle, assuming the laws don't change between now and then.
    Good riddance . . . . wish my name could be put in the lottery to do the injection.

    I'm generally against the death penalty, but it's not accurate to claim that it serves no purpose. It serves the purpose of being sure that such people won't do such things again in the future.

    Many times I've been assured that atheists and other freethinkers are all in agreement that murder and deadly assault are wrong even if they don't have a God to tell them it's wrong. So where the **** do you get this "subjective notions of morality" bull****?
    Keeping people locked up also serves the same purpose.

    Some people think the death penalty is immoral. Others do not. Isn't that sufficient evidence that it's subjective?

    I bet pay-per-view could make a lotta money broadcasting this execution.
