    I'm against the death penalty, but hopefully this will at least give the victims' families some closure when the sentence is finally carried out.

    I'm not a huge fan of the death penalty, mostly it's the fear that innocent people are being executed. However if you're going to have one this would be an appropriate time to use it. Just wish it could be all wrapped up within a year, of course then innocents would have far less chance of escaping mistakes so it's really not an option.

    Closure is a term that only exists to mainly pretend it happens. Most often closure as you say does not happen.

    Not at all--especially since it was a GOP governor in Illinois who did away with the death penalty.

    And then went to jail years later for bribes for licenses as Secretary of State.
    The death of an all-white family of six from a Milwaukee suburb sealed that deal.

    I support the legal systems of states--Massachusetts isn't known for its conservatism, is it ?

    having never been a survivor of a murder victim whose murderer was put to death, I can't really speak on that. I think as long as we're going to kill the guy though, I hope it at least brings the victims' families some peace, whether you call that closure, revenge, justice, or whatever.

    The death penalty is barbaric. Hopefully, by the time his appeals are over, the death penalty will be abolished at the federal level.

    Barbaric is blowing a child to bits as he watches a marathon. He knew he would be killing children and he did it anyway.

    His sentence is far better than he deserves.

    Good. When you're that much of a threat to the nation, you deserve to be put to death.

    I'm for the cheapest option, and sadly, paying the 40K per year or whatever it is to keep him locked up is CHEAPER than what it's going to cost John Q. Public to get that needle into his arm.

    Primary purpose of death penalty or locking someone up is to remove a threat to society. To that end, as far as I'm concerned, life in prison without possibility of parole is functionally the same as death via whatever means used at the time/place. From that point, for me, it's all about money, and which leaves the most on the table.
