    Well, I think this is more about putting him out of our misery.

    And guaranteeing that he will never get out of prison.

    Even with a life sentence, there is still that slim miniscule chance that he could get out.

    What they should have done is let him choose and then carry out the oppisite.

    Make them sit there for an hour shitting his pants while they stick him with a needle.

    Exacting justice for crimes is a necessary condition of/for civilization.

    Salivating over the details of punishment is pathetic, banal knuckle-dragging.

    But then again, wasting work hours posting on message boards is pathetic, banal knuckle-dragging.

    Perhaps put a two-hour Rita Rudner comedy special on a loop and lock the door. Nature will take its course.

    Did the guy who blasted the innocent girl in the face with the shotgun after he raped her die last night?

    Oh, but the pro death penalty folks around here want their country to be part of the same exclusive club as Iran, China & Saudi-Arabia.

    Every civilized country in the western world abolished the death penalty a long time ago.

    They realised that state-sanctioned murder does NOT equal justice.

    What kind of slur is THAT? Is there something wrong with the people of Iran, China or Saudi Arabia? You are a racist. The definition of racism is to define any individual by their race or country and assume that another country is superior to another.

    By all means, continue to lump people together indiscriminately. It's a big scary world, and it's hard to think about stuff.

    No, they're the countries that routintely execute their citizens. You know, beheadings, hangings, stonings, firing squads.

    Welcome to the club.

    Oh, and learn to read.

    Why do you hate Iranians, Chinese and Saudi Arabians, JR?
