    Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't an appeal be denied? Or is that only if you appeal to the SCOTUS?
    In death cases an appeal is automatic, even if the murderer doesn't want to. FYI; I've done a lot of research on the legalities of capital punishment.

    Bah - add in the fact that he thinks he was smarter then everyone else (they're all illiterate in his district) and you almost certainly have a left wing nut job. I agree, he has to pay for his actions, but I can stereo-type all I like.

    Haven't you gotten the message that this is not the thread, time, or place for right vs left crap? If not, you really should read more of the damn thread before posting.

    How incredibly sad. Some wicked individual should be severely punished for his crimes. My prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords and with those who have lost loved ones or are injured due to this horrific act of terrorism.

    No idea where you are coming up with this "left wing" noise. The guy's profile just sounds like a psycho to me. Maybe throw in some "visions of grandeur" and a bit of a superiority complex.

    "Wackjob" was pretty obvious from the start. Assassination attempts basically come in two flavors: lunatic snapping or professional hit, and professionals don't usually stroll up in the middle of the crowd and shoot someone point-blank because that pretty much guarantees you'll be captured or killed.

    Exactly, this wasn't a left/right political thing. This was a crazy guy wanting to kill a member of congress, ANY member of congress, and anyone near them. And unfortunately for Mrs. Giffords, she was the one he had access to.

    Why must we pass around accusations and try to force a political motive? What happened was assault and murder, let's not turn it into a partisan hack fest. Please and thank you.
