    First, I am not the least bit worried about him escaping or taking a hostage. Not the tiniest little bit.

    As for the money? I don't know how many pennies or fractions of a penny it is going to cost me personally to punish this monster but I will consider it a bargain.

    The death penalty is an issue that divides DEMs much more than it does GOPs, as you can see in this thread.
    GOPs like to puff out their chests and show how bad they are--the party of family values.

    I prefer a more measured response.
    The bomber made a choice--he is responsible for knowing the laws of Massachusetts--not exactly a conservative state.

    A jury of his peers has ruled--if this survives appeals, a process that needs overhauled, I prefer the Chinese method.
    Quickly--the KISS method--don't waste our money housing him in jail.

    But the stronger the cognitive dissonance.

    Having a weak mind is not the same as having a weak will. And make no mistake, faith can grant people the will to do great or terrible things, where before there was none, or at the best, were it was lacking.

    It took will to do what this kid did. A stern, and resolute determination to follow through. The word unyielding comes to mind. I don't say this to impart respect, only understanding. You or I? Let's say we had a dream last night and in that dream God commanded us to kill a bunch of people. Would you or I have the will to follow through on such an order? Or would it be the FAITH that would ultimately impart that resolve to do such a thing?

    Now, it's not all faith, in this case. Personally, I think this kid is a bit messed up in the head, beyond just his faith. But my point is, he followed through on an act to kill and maim innocent people, and then continued on with further plans, up to killing his own brother. All, presumably, for faith.

    No, this person is not going to throw all of that away now, just to get out of some hard time. He's doing this to get into heaven. Why would he destroy his chances now?

    The guy is a total pussy. He couldn't manage to take any hostages, nor is he smart enough to escape. He was too dumb to realize the Boston Marathon would be filmed and he tried to get away in a boat that was on land.

    Are YOU eager to pay the millions MORE that it will cost beyond those things you have listed to get the needle into his arm?

    No--I would prefer him dead tomorrow.
    But our appeals system needs overhauled.

    Until then, he must be made to work his costs off.
    An internal chain gang or rock pile would suit me--since righties are puffing out their chests on this thread .

    The problem there is, whatever work they do, so long as it has value, takes paying jobs away from people that need them. That's one of the reasons that sort of thing isn't done anymore. Well, that and the corruption involved.

    Russian prisons are pretty extreme and unpleasant, and very strict and structured. US prisons seem to be riddled with more crime and gang activity. Maybe I am wrong, but that's how it looks on the surface to me.

    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.

    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.
    And that should only take 30 years to come about.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
