    I'll judge how excited I am based on how they decide to kill him.

    life without parole = drain on taxpayers. we feed him, keep him clothed, and let him watch cable the rest of his life?

    death sentence = 20 years of appeals... the line is THAT long in this state... but, fuck it... he'll die by some other guy's plastic fork at dinner.

    Yeah, he won't last long.

    Have his hay loft invaded while he waits in a cell before they find him dead in the corner of the cafeteria with a light bulb in his butt.

    Pope, it's going to be lethal injection, unless the judge overrules the sentence in feb. which is unlikely

    Correction: His sentence is going to be whatever his fellow prisoners decide it will be.

    in my opinion, there shouldn't be a waiting period for the death penalty, we'll just pay for him to sit in jail, and enjoy a life were he can finish school, work out, watch tv, do almost the exact same things he can do on the outside, except he'll have to do it within the confines of prison. why wait, kill him tomorrow. i say we go back to the "Eye for an Eye" laws, but we choose not to due to the fact that we are a pro-life country. to me, prison isn't gonna change anybody. if you killed before prison, you're gonna kill again. thats just my 2 cents.

    Ok, I guess I'll take the unpopular position here and say I still don't feel that he got a fair trial. I don't think it is simple coincidence that after kicking out two members of the jury they shortly came up with their verdict. Beyond that I don't ever agree with the death penalty, for a few reasons.
    Too many times (one is too many) we have found people to be innocent after they have been put to death, and their deaths are on the hands of every American; their blood on my hands is not something i am ok with.
    I think we also need to examine why we employ the death penalty. Some say that it acts as a deterrent to the crimes that are punishable by death, but as we can see by texas having the highest capital punishment rate and still maintaining a high crime rate, there is no correlation there. Others will argue that it is for the families of the bereaved, but numerous studies show that those family members do not feel better after the supposed offender has been executed. Their loved one is still dead and the death of the person convicted does little to nothing to fill the gap in their lives.
    Beyond that you have to pay attention to the higher execution rates of minorities and those who cannot afford awesoe legal council. I mean christ, Oj's evidence was far more condenming, yet he was not convicted. Of course the falterings in our justice system are something that has to be worked through, but i cannot with clear conscious ever be ok with using a justice system that can at times be flawed, yet still determine whether or not to end the life of a human.

    I agree with you on the trial, Guy. However, to have a completely fair trial, you have to have a completely unbiased jury. At this point, you'd have to go to another planet, or at least another country. And true also about the finding people innocent after death. But, as you say, there are some big kinks in the current legal and judicial system which create problems on their own. I feel, in most cases, that life in prison is a waste of time and dollars.

    True as that may be, regarding the jurors, we as a nation cannot put the lives of defendants in the hands of biased jurors. That is not fair to them, you, me, or anybody.
    To address the issue of cost effectiveness of the death penalty:

    Hmm....Not the same style, but after watching run away jury, I just don't trust the legal system, anything could be true at that point.

    I just don't know....

    And yeah, I heard from my HCWI teacher that it is more expensive to give him the death penalty then letting him live for his natrual life.
