    If we are really posting what we hope?

    I hope he kills himself as soon as possible. No blame for society, no $$$$ for taxpayers.

    You know...so he finds 'peace' and can have his image of Allah 'congratulate' him.

    But I'm not particularly proud of this.

    I agree with the sentence.
    Coming from a "liberal" state, I don't see many "righties" applauding Massachusetts.
    Since accusations of "lefty" and "liberal" as something bad seems to be the rage these days on every other issue.

    I'd prefer one set of rules on the death penalty---meaning the 10th amendment shouldn't be around here either .

    It appears his anger is directed at murderous intent.

    I'm of the opinion that those who genuinely repent should be forgiven (although still be subject to justice and their sentence), but I'd be lying if I didn't say I feel like he should die quickly to save taxpayer money in a painful way similar to what he inflicted on others. The whole falling asleep and never waking up with lethal injection is too good for him as he is now.

    I have never understood why the death penalty is considered a more just punishment than life in prison. Life in a supermax prison DOES suck. Death is just a dreamless sleep. No suffering, no regrets, no nothing. Just like before one is born...nothing.

    People kill themselves to escape dispair. We often feel relief when a loved one suffering from a terminal and painful disease finally passes away, not because we want them gone, but because they are finally no longer suffering.

    Euthanizing one's beloved pet when it is in incurable pain is considered a kindness by most people.

    And now we are going to extend this same kindness to a killer rather than make him endure incarceration for the rest of his life.

    I don't get it.


    I just don't get it.

    He won't. Suicide denies him entrance to heaven.

    He must be slain by his enemies in order to be ASSURED a place in heaven.

    but he could keep filing all sorts of lawsuits for many decades to come, all at taxpayers expense

    In Gellers case, the terrorists created the conditions for mass murder-when they showed up with guns and bombs.

    Get your thinking straight.

    And that is up to God or Allah or their god. Correct?

    I have no idea if he did or will repent. Nor do I care.

    I'm in the same boat, bob.


    No longer affecting life IS death, as faar as I'm concerned. And when you're behind bars, you're no longer affecting life.
