    If he did would you send him to his room as punishment?

    If you want to equate someone's bedroom with tv, video games, computer, phone, and porn DVDs () with jail....be my guest. I'm just yanking your chain by the way.
    They practically have those things in prison. They have cable tv, libraries, video games(in some prisons), internet access(some prisons), college education and many other things that a lot of people on the outside of prison have to pay for and a a lot of things that regular law abiding citizens in 3rd world countries do not have.

    Maybe you have personal knowledge of how great being in jail is. Who knew?
    If you took away the stabbings, butt rape and other prison violence how would it be any different than a dormitory(minus the exception that you are free to leave at any time)?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It will deter the shooter in question from ever committing another murder. That's a sufficient level of deterrance for me.

    Why should my taxpayer dollars go to fund this bastard? I'm glad he's getting a taste of what he did to 10 innocent people.

    I am pretty confident that it is more expensive to the taxpayer to pay for someone to be executed than to let him/her rot in jail for the rest of his/her life.

    I just cannot grasp anyone thinking that being in jail is actually a positive experience of some sorts.

    Why is it more just to execute him than to let him rot in prison for the rest of his life? The effect of both punishments are essentially the same except that the latter option is way cheaper.

    Well there's a good bet that life in prison without parole would have accomplished the same thing without all the cost associated with the DP.

    Probably well low enough to justify saving the money and just throwing people in jail for life without parole.
