    So, you would have the same feelings about anyone who murdered a child?

    Reminds me of some of the rambling of the Manson Family that came to light, after the Tate killings.

    I would much prefer putting him in solitary for the remainder of his life.

    I'm okay with that as long as the remainder of his life is pretty frikkin' short.

    Do I suggest the death penalty for anyone who murders a child? Absolutely.

    After killing one person, I think the only thing that should change is how much time you have left to life. Serial killers die before someone who kills one person. Just because the more you kill, the less you deserve to live, IMO.

    That would cost too much. Does his case take precedence over other cases in terms of court dates because he killed a judge and attempted to kill a Congresswoman?

    The cost of executing somebody (after all the appeals) actually cost much more than putting them up for life. I don't think you actually care about cost anyway.

    I think we should make an example of him. If solitary confinement were worse than a death sentence, people on death row wouldn't spend 25 years appealing their sentences, they would just say the hell with it and go to the death chamber. Why don't they do that? Because a life sentence is a helluva lot better than dieing.

    I understand that, and thats the only problem with the death penalty. Honestly, there are people that need killing in this world. Our legal system should be a little more streamlined to accomodate that reality. In any case, for this particular person, I don't really care about the costs.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't an appeal be denied? Or is that only if you appeal to the SCOTUS?
