    Yet these prison jobs aren't likely to be ones MOST Americans will do.

    As I've mentioned, the whole Appeals system needs overhauled.

    Just another issue that could be tackled by Sen. Coburn's Constitutional Convention.

    In which I believe DP should be a federal issue, not a state's rights issue .

    Yeah. They are riddled with crime AND unpleasant.

    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.

    This is always funny to me. When post after post from anti DPers, calling the DP "barbaric" and lamenting the very existence of anyone who actually supports it, fails to guilt us into opposing it, it always turns into it's actually prison that's the truly harsh sentence.

    Ok, have it your way, shame on you both for condoning the barbaric and cruel punishment of life in prison instead of the humane punishment I support. You're heartless and horrible people, unlike me.

    Hey, righteous indignation is fun.

    People are killed by other people every day. Very few of them deserve it as much as this guy does.

    Lethal injection is so 1982. I say drown his ass in a vat of lukewarm bacon grease.

    Once again, you display your blatant ignorance of what "the left" thinks. I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

    This was a mistake.

    Not because of the DP; I'm not anti-DP. And if anyone deserves the DP, it's Tsarnaev.

    It's a mistake because there's a good chance that it will backfire. Jihadists will begin calling this guy a martyr, and it will lead to more copycat attempts at this kind of bombing. Better that he should be beaten to death by fellow inmates.

    I grow tired of this appeasement mentality. The terrorists already hate us, and others. Burying your head in the sand wont change that.
    Not one victim did a thing to deserve getting blown up.
    **** terrorists, because **** evil.

    Why? Do you think bacon is magic? Do you think bacon actually makes him go to hell?

    I like a little bacon grease sometimes for cooking, so I couldn't see offending it with this creature. Even a shark or a hyena might not eat such rotten meat.

    I do not like using lethal injection to carry out federal death penalties, though. The overwhelming majority of people executed in this country's history have died by hanging, and I would like to see it brought back. I think one or two states may still provide for it, and assuming it is done competently, it is quick--there is no Eight Amendment problem with it. I believe it was used in Britain well into the 1960's. It makes a very clear statement of just how loathsome and unacceptable the society considers murder, but without being brutal or barbaric.

    Hanging has several advantages. It is an undignified end, which heinous murderers deserve. It would probably avoid the constitutional problems that have come up with poison gas and electrocution. Because it is so grim, the thought of standing on a gallows, bound and blindfolded with a noose around your neck, would give at least some would-be murderers pause.
