    Brenton Tarrant's fate is in the hands of the New Zealand authorities. They don't have the death penalty any longer, it was abolished in 1989. I hope their parliament revisits this issue after this heinous crime and reinstates capital punishment. The method of execution was previously death by hanging. The United States failed miserably when we didn't make an example of Robert Bowers for his hate crime of murdering 11 Jews in a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

    Hate crimes, particularly those that involve innocent people worshiping in their place of worship should be dealt with as swiftly, as brutally and as savagely as those crimes they've committed. There should be no long drawn-out trial and appeals and all that bull****. Give them a trial and if found guilty, executed them and do it in public and televised for everyone to see and to send the message that we are not going to tolerate this anymore

    One woman was shot three times outside that mosque and struggled to the curb where she fell face down. Still alive, she pleaded 'help help'. Brenton Tarrant stood over her and shot her in the head two more times. Then he got in his vehicle and ran over her dead body.

    Humans just can't be allowed to become a hero and an inspiration for people filled with that much hatred.

    That's about what he would send.
    However, he would probably sign off as......

    "THE DONALD, STABLE GENIUS, DENUCLEARIZER OF THE KOREAN PENINSULA, ISIS DESTROYER, FRIEND AND CONFIDANT OF DESPOTS"

    EDIT: Oops, I should add..."BREAKER OF CHAINS and MOTHER OF DRAGONS" to his sign off.

    We can chew gum and walk at the same time. We can be both saddened by the deaths and angered by the failure in leadership by our president.

    I actually don't believe in the death penalty for heinous acts.

    I would prefer they get life without parole in a 4x8 cell without a window. No TV no books. Nothing. Sit there and think about what you did as you go slowly insane.

    THAT would be a ****ing deterrent.

    Right?

    I'd be all in favour of simply omitting the loser's name from any news coverage and simply describing him as "an unbalanced, bigoted, and deluded loser".

    The amount of FAIL in your post exceeds mathematical measurement.
    The concern is over the CONTENT of Trump's tweet with regard TO the 49 people who lost their lives.
