    Jared Loughner's body is sitting lifeless, in the gas chamber and his soul is on the way to hell, where it belongs.

    I think it depends on whether he is designated insane.

    If insane, he should spend his life in a high security mental institution

    If sane, he should either spend his life in jail or have the death penalty.

    I don't believe in hell . .. which is part of hte reason why I don't support the death sentence in that regard. I don't believe there is anything beyond this - so punishment when you're alive is what the doctor ordered.

    And perhaps if there is an afterlife - it might not be one of fire and brimstone. . . perhaps god might forgive everyone - usher him off to the unknown assuming it'll be punishment won't help me feel satisfied.

    Loughner will be pissing his pants, on his way to die. He's going to know that he's just a few short minutes away from whatever awaits him. That's punishment. I don't care what anyone says.

    The mass murderer's actions are a reflection on his parents.
    They do have a responsibility to raise a child with qualities(respect, morals, ethics)
    This is what 99.99% of us do.
    If it benefits society that he stay alive for 50 plus years in an institution, then so be it.
    By now, I'm sure that these men have been studied to death.
    I am against the death penalty, another change in my philosophy.
    Real gun control is one attempt as an answer to this problem.
    It can be said that society brings these problems upon themselves.

There is no doubt in my mind this Loughner did the crime.

    IMO, the trail should be limited to no more than a week. When found guilty the sentance should be death. The second week would be the apeal to the death sentance. This would should be limited to more than 1 day of court time. The sentance should be carried out immediatly after the appeal is turned down.
    That's how it should end. But it will go on for a long time. He'll most certainly go to prison, but he will be in there for years before he is eventually executed, if he is executed. There will be books about it. Maybe even a made for tv movie. and tv specials... "the Loughner interviews". and cable shows.

    It will *never* end.

    All the punishment in the world will not bring back his victims.
    As difficult as it is, we must have compassion for him and his parents.
    We must learn , maybe for the first time, from this tragedy.
    We must listen and care about others, we must be more social.
    It was said that his parents "kept to themselves".
    Why?
    If our gun rules and regulations were up to date, this never would have happened.
    Its the 21st century, not the 16th, for God's sake!

    And, what does this "punishment" accomplish ?
    Apdst, try caring. If I were 20 years younger, I'd say the SOB should be swinging by now.

    If he is found guilty (and I think the evidence is overwhelming), he should get life in prison without the opportunity for parole.

    Re: How do you think the AZ shooter's courtcase should end?

    I chose other since I don't know if the guy is really insane to the point of not being able to control or understand his actions. It's kind of hard to tell just from some brief tv reports :-P Anyway, if he actually is shown to meet the critea for the insanity defense to be legit, then he should be institutionalized, otherwise he should be subject to the maximum penalty for murder in Arizona whether it's the death penalty or life imprisonment.
