With the events taking place in Colorado, should the death penalty be used here?
In all probability the shooter will be found not guilty by cause of insanity, he is sick, so no, he will spend the rest of his life in a padded cell.
No. Hypocrisy and man judging man will NEVER be the answer. That and the little matter of the fact that our "justice" system can and has been proven to have screwed up many times, in this particular situation as well. You can't undo that one or apologize to anyone. Innocent people die on death row. Oooops!
Huff and puff and stomp your feet all you want, minusers. Your bloodlust is NOT just. Revenge is no excuse for collateral damage. Bet you'd be more sober if YOU had to pull the switch. If by chance you have, and can sleep at night, God help us.
We don't yet have close to all the facts. How could we possibly make such a judgment now?
Agreed. Attikos, I know you are against government policies and all. I'm curious of your opinion on this matter, do you think he might have been set up to make gun control regulations easily accepted? Or was this just a coincidence?
I think lilmma was posing the question in the context of the assumption that he is found guilty...in which case I would say he definitely deserves the death penalty.
And there is NO legitimate reason to infringe the 2nd Amendment because of this case
SportsBetter, I know there are conspiracies all around us every day, viz. when connected to government. They almost always fizzle out, though. People generally aren't secretive enough to pull them off. I doubt this is one.
If he is found to be sane? He planned this for months. If this isn't a case of first degree murder I don't know what is? Try telling that precious little girls Mother he is going to get away with it because he is crazy. "CRAZY LIKE A FOX". If he is mentally ill it hasn't been documented in the past. If so, He couldn't have purchased the guns legally in which he did.
This is an interesting and yet old question (the death penalty), but the answer is never quiet right no matter how you try to reason it. Personally,I don't know that in my sanity I could ever make the decision to kill another human being and feel right about it. I had a patient once who felt strongly about this. He reasoned that some people (criminals) are so broken that if released they will just do it again. If kept in jail they just cost the taxpayer money and for what? Honestly, I am glad someone else makes these decisions because I just couldn't do it. I can see all sides, the moral, the legal, the reasonable and the emotional.
