    Since the foreign intelligence committee says we "face a greater than now more than ever" I should what? Be "vigilant"? Are we in red code yet (if that little color code chart still existed)?


    I better get more now, foreign intelligence committee says we are in grave danger.
    Im certain an appeal is coming, maybe even required. And I hope it comes to the same verdict and sentence. Not even he denies what he did.

    We are code L-for leftist. Meaning a govt unable to address threats. Need an example? Rhymes with ISIS.

    I do believe strongly in self-defense though, so I have no problem defending ourselves, those we love, or other innocents - by using lethal force if there's no other recourse. And by extension, I have no problem supporting a 'just war'. However, I do not believe that once we have removed a dangerous human being from society and safely locked them in a cage, that we have then the right to kill them after-the-fact - their's is no longer our life to take.

    That being said, this case is heinous enough that it has caused me to reexamined my conviction, though I do not believe I will change it.
    I respect people who stuggle with this. But I see evil and I know without a moments hesitation that it must be destroyed.

    Same with the bowl-cut freak in Charleston. I was moved by the response from the Christians of that church, and others-but I want him swinging from a tree.

    We... in the civilized world do not sentence people to rape for their crimes because we are not some 3rd world dictatorship with no rule of law.

    We've taken his freedom and eventually we will take his life for what he's done... but two wrongs don't make a right.

    We. Don't. Sentence. People. To. Rape.
    Ironic in light of your sig.

    Not casual, in fact I see prison rape as a bad thing-which is why I wont mind a bit if it happens to him.

    Just as I wont be upset when his heart is stopped-in fact maybe we should skip the sedatives before hand.

    Thats all on the state level bud.

    Tells you what you need to know.
    Yea.... "need to know"

    To be fair-I'd be worried after last years mid terms as well if I was a democrat.
    Why? Because its not your party?

    Did you not agree with me that terror flourishes under Obama?

    Climate change is a political wedge issue exploited by the left. The fact that our president told graduating military cadets its the biggest threat is case in point.

    Last I hear ole cankles herself was cackling about the confederate flag today. Is she running for state office?

    No, not because its not my party, because its losing horribly.

    Of course, it's Obama's fault.

    Yes because racial strife doesn't exist.

    What are you even babbling about now?
    Watch this: "You are code R-for rightist. Meaning a gov unable to address threats. Need an example?"
    I can tell you put a lot of sound reasoning, logical thought, and non-hackery behind your posts.

    Remember you said: "I hope it hurts. A lot."

    He's had his day in court and found guilty by a jury of his peers, all of which conforms to "conservative" ideals (nice scare quotes, by the way) . He's going to die in accordance with the law. It's just my personal desire that he feels some small amount of the pain he inflicted on so many.
    "I hope it hurts. A lot."
    -- A lot means "a large number or amount; a great deal". Thats more than a "small amount"... Thus making it cruel and unusual...
    Is "a lot of pain" considered necessary? No. Would it be degrading to his human dignity? Yes. Cruel and unusual.
    Maybe if you get a t-shirt with his picture on it you'll feel better.
    Awhhh man since I hope he doesnt die in pain that must mean I like him right?

    In a sweeping rejection of the defense case, the jury found that death was the appropriate punishment for six of 17 capital counts — all six related to Mr. Tsarnaev’s planting of a pressure-cooker bomb on Boylston Street, which his lawyers never disputed. Mr. Tsarnaev, 21, stood stone-faced in court, his hands folded in front of him, as the verdict was read, his lawyers standing grimly at his side.

    I'm not going to throw my arms up in righteous indignation at his death sentence. But I still oppose the death penalty and given the choice would commute his sentence to life in prison.
