    Untrue. It removes a killer from our midst. That's a positive.

    It'll change things for him, which is the whole idea. I disagree. It will always feel good knowing the scum of the earth got some tiny bit of justice.

    I'm not saying he should be treated well, but honouring the sovereignty of his life would be the best way to honour the people he killed because it would be adding a corrected behaviour to the chain of heinous events. The way you deal with evil is to confront it with goodness, or transform it into goodness. One of those two options is usually better than stooping to his level.
    There is no sovereignty to his life. He gave that up. He had a choice. We aren't stooping to his level when applying justice. Justice is a good thing. It brings closure for the family and the state. As long as this guy is breathing, he is fouling the air that we all have to breathe.

    I'm a huge proponent of the death penalty; but why is this murder so much more deserving of the death penalty, than any other murder?

    A loved one was murdered? A child was murdered?

    It's the heinousness of the crime. There was torture involved.

    All crimes are subject to aggravating and mitigating factors during sentencing.

    So, if the victim isn't tortured, then he/she isn't anymore murdered?

    well if you just shoot someone and kill them quick you deserve a quick death

    burning at the stake after anal impalement for example might be appropriate for this mope

    I was referring to the, "I oppose the death penalty, but in this case I could go along with it", mindset of some of the posters on this thread.
