    I'll practice really, really, really hard for a chance at a spot on that squad.

    It doesn't take an emotional state to understand that justice for a murderer, is that he forfeits his life.

I probably wouldn't support such a thing since it is unnecessarily cruel.
    As far as punishments go firing squad isn't actually that cruel, as long as the shots are good enough so that the executed person doesn't end up dying a slow and painful death. James Holmes doesn't seem like the guy who'd feel sorry once he saw rifles pointed at him either, so I'm not sure what the point would be for such an execution.
    Anyone besides me find it odd that we should treat a man who premeditated multiple murders, ala terrorist style, in a manner suitable for reasonable people?

    It appears to me that the perp already is insane.

    I think he should die, too. Just not in a cruel, torturous way. If you want to put a single round through the back of his head, that's one thing. Shooting out his knees is just wantonly cruel revenge, not justice.

    It might be trite, but aren't we better than Mr. Holmes?

    I agree with you on that point. I don't favor cruelty to criminals any more than I favor cruelty to animals going to slaughter. As far as I'm concerned, one quick bullet to the brainstem is the best solution.

    Which is precisely why we have those parts of the constitution: to keep psychopaths like yourself out of due process.

    I'm not exactly sure how picking civilians as part of a firing squad violates due process, nor where it says that can't happen in the Constitution.

    It is the psychopaths who plan and murder innocent civilians. Those who can see the difference are not the psychopaths.

    Someone who fantasizes about executing the accused individual should not be involved in due process at any step.

    Fantasizing about executing someone? I think it qualifies.
