    For those of you who are death penalty enthusiasts, could you make a case for giving this kid the needle?

    Granted, the boy needs serious help and may never be able to walk freely among the general public, but the needle? No.

    I agree completely.

    I don't know. I think we need to find out why he shot them. Women kill abusive husbands and go free.

    Into straw men much?

    I know few people in favor of the death penalty who insist it should be applied in every instance.

    After the Jonesboro school shootings a decade ago, I remember hearing a few people call for putting the 11 and the 13-year-old to death.
    I remember hearing about one politician in Texas calling for the minimum age for the death penalty being lowered to 11.

    I'm against it period, but an eight-year-old? No way, no how.

    Neither of which have anything to do with "every instance."

    No... but I'm all for taking away the fucking guns.
