NewportBarGuy: Let him rot in jail forever and ever and ever and ever.


I'm fine with that. We should ditch the death penalty already. It's a waste of judicial resources.

I'm pretty sure he's in SuperMax in Colorado. I think I'd rather be dead than in there for 60+ years

Actually, I know I would

I remember how chaotic it was back then. It was a shock that someone bombed the Marathon, and then days later when Boston and the subway was shut down, because the police were looking for these guys.

I'm not rigidly anti death penalty, but if he gets life, I want to know that he can never be released, eg on compassionate grounds, etc.

If my choice was 23 hous a day in a 7'x12' for 60+ years or death, I'd choose death, and if they forced life on me I'd find a way to change that myself.

Just the isolation would be torture.  Never understood why people fight not getting the death penalty.  Obviously the not guilty have a reason to fight it, but something like this where it is pretty clear cut, same as oklahoma city bomber, why extend your own suffering by fighting it?

Never understood it.

It's much more satisfying to a revenge boner to have them suffer in a hellhole prison his entire life anyway rather than granting the sweet relief of death.

I don't like the death penalty.  I don't think it cruel or unusual to test vaccines on them, though.

We are not the monsters they are. Great Nurgle would ask for mercy, that we treat them with the tenderness and respect for all life. Life imprisonment never worrying about food or a roof over their head would be what Nurgle wants. Won't you think of their gut bacteria?

This.

The state should never take a life, because then they can take any life.

The state makes mistakes. All the time.

I would rather 1000 guilty men go free, then to kill one innocent person.

We should ditch anything but continual cannibal thunderdome fights for those who are never going to get out of prison.  No food, except the other prisoners.  When they get hungry, they tap in and get assigned the next hungry prisoner to fight and eat.

Or, make it so the bomber is put in solitary for the rest of his life.  And given life extension drugs.  No entertainment.  No visitors.  Just a slot in the wall where nurtriloaf appears once in a while.  No cues for the passage of time.  Then hopefully before he dies we perfect the ability to scan his brain and transfer his consciousness to a computer.  Then we put his consciousness in a virtual concrete cell, and have him in solitary for quadrillions of years.  Make it so even death won't come for him.  Speed up time so he experiences quintellions of googleplexian of years in solitary.  No reprevies.  No death.  Just concrete and his own thoughts.  Forever.  Do this with all murderers.  Make them suffer forever.  Or as close as we can get to forever.  Finally, when the protons start to decay, let them go to whatever hell they believe in.  If they still have thoughts.  And are not some pure form of insanity distilled into a computer.

Meanwhile, it's just fine for an anti-Trump activist to be the jury foreperson on Roger Stone's trial. No problems there at all.

Well, creampuff, this one is as guilty as they come.

Given the chance I'd willingly throw the switch or however they planned on killing him.  Some people just need killin' and he's one of them.

I'm ok with this.  Give the convicted the option.  So long as life in prison is life and nothing shorter, what does it matter if you're locked up or check out.

dkulprit: Never understood why people fight not getting the death penalty.


Another irony of this in cases where people are possibly or likely innocent is that having the death penalty means you get more chances for appeals. As has been demonstrated with Curtis Flowers, the death penalty means more people look at your case and possibly overturn it. Had Curtis been sentenced to "only" life in prison, no one would have repeatedly looked at his case and exposed him as being likely innocent.

Go check out our President's comments on this and you'll be reminded of why the state should not be trusted to engage in formal, ritual life-taking.

"We should keep the death penalty, because it offers more chances to fix the mistakes of the justice system."

That's your take?

FTFA:  Tsarnaev's lawyers acknowledged at the beginning of his trial that he and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, set off the two bombs at the marathon finish line. But they argued that Dzhokar Tsarnaev is less culpable than his brother, who they said was the mastermind behind the attack.
