    Re: Aurora victim Carli Richards calls for firing squad for James Holmes

    I'm against the death penalty mainly due to the fact that our justice system isn't perfect and we may execute an innocent person. However, in clearly guilty cases like this (that are also clearly depraved and wretched) I think a firing squad may be alright. Heck, they should poison him and let him die in agony for a week while his internal organs rot.

    no.
    At one time the firing squad method was not "cruel" nor "unusual". Maybe we should go back to that time for looking at the "law" for this case.

    we agree on the one bullet to the head.

    The death penalty is an appropriate penalty in this case.

    At one time, a lot of things weren't like the way they are today. So what. That being said, give him the death penality. Not a firing squad.

    Yeah the real CO shooter must have been using a Star Trek hologram to project an innocent person in the theater shooting, and then doctored all the gun buying receipts, and then boobytrapped the same innocent man's apartment he used in his hologram image.

    Allowing the state to kill its citizens is bad precedent. It also makes murderers of us all.

    this is why lethal injection and old sparky are preferred methods.

    It might make "killers" of us all, but certainly not "murderers".

    I never did understand the penalty for killing someone is killing someone.

    When will we make the penalty for smoking a joint smoking a joint?
