If you are going to have a death penalty, what better person than this?
|skippy0001 ||15 May 2015 1:28 p.m. PST|
They polled the jury-never heard of that before.
He could be staked to be trampled by the next Marathon but Nike and Mongols might complain…icky running shoes(or a GREAT Commercial) and he's not a Mongol Prince…:)
We could fly him back to his homeland…strapped to the landing gear…
Ebola tester?…c'mon guys, help me…:)
It's OK, I served on a jury…

Sad thing is the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars and years delay before this ever takes place, if it ever does.
Meanwhile, the families will have the opportunity to re-injure old hurts and emotional scars each time the appeal process slowly grinds its way to the next one.
He's partial to nasty little homemade bombs? I think that's a great way to go. Maybe nasty enough to take a limb or two but not kill him – let him slowly bleed out. Or give him emergency care at the last minute and recover until it is time for the next mini-bomb.
In a book I read, there was a torturer / executioner working for the ruler of China back in the days of Marco Polo. The worst way to go was the death by a thousand cuts. "The Fondler" as the executioner was known was not some big hulking brute, but rather a slight of build, rather old Chinaman. Very wise in the functions of the body and mind, the limits a human has, and the extent of pain that can be handled.
There is a large urn, with a thousand balls in it – each with a distinct body part. Each day, he'd pull a ball – it might read "right earlobe" and that day, all day, that one body part would get the most exquisite attention a torturer could provide. Slow, sustained, and different. Whether cuts or piercing, burns, things done to existing injuries (salt in the wound sort of thing with different compounds for different effects).
Tomorrow? Who knows? Maybe the victim will be lucky and it will be a vital organ, ensuring one last day of agony and pain, but most importantly, the LAST day.
Odds are against him though…
Navel, maybe? Left eyelid? Under the nail of a pinkie finger?
999 balls left. Do you feel lucky?

Polling the jury is not uncommon. The defense, claiming to verify that it is unanimous, hopes that one of them will waiver in the spotlight. A last ditch attempt to save a piece of scum.
|RavenscraftCybernetics ||15 May 2015 2:58 p.m. PST|
they should strap him to a similar type explosive device and set it off.
|darthfozzywig ||15 May 2015 3:08 p.m. PST|
I don't see the need to torture and gloat over it. POS like that guy doesn't deserve the attention anyway. Double-tap and have done with him.
|skippy0001 ||15 May 2015 3:45 p.m. PST|
OK, double-tap with a .600 Nitro Double Rifle.
| Great War Ace ||15 May 2015 3:59 p.m. PST|
Well, well, Bluey Fezzy territory, anyone?…

No need to make him think he is special. He thinks he's a warrior. Make it clear he's just another loser who's wasted his own life by injuring others. Leave him to whatever foolish defiance or spiritual redemption his future on Death Row holds, then carry out the sentence, dispose of the remains, and ignore the day.
I like the statement the George Clooney character in The Monuments Men makes to the SS Colonel. "One morning I will smoke a cigarette and eat my bagel, and open the New York Times and see your name. Not on page 1, but page 18. I will read that Colonel so-and-so was executed for war crimes. And I will remember this cigarette and you sitting there with that stupid smile on your face. And then I will put out my cigarette and walk away, and never think of you again."
Let him know that is his fate. Death, followed by irrelevancy.
|skippy0001 ||15 May 2015 6:43 p.m. PST|
Parzifal-well stated. Indifference is better than remembering him.
Besides the only vengeance that works is outliving your enemies. The First Best vengeance is out living them WELL.
| Jlundberg ||15 May 2015 7:23 p.m. PST|
Give him expedited appeal then snuff him out quickly with less dignity than putting an animal down
|nazrat||15 May 2015 8:02 p.m. PST|
Hey, they knocked off that McVeigh scum fast, so maybe they will with this as well.
| Doctor X ||15 May 2015 8:05 p.m. PST|
Put him in a room with the victims families and let them do as they want with him.
Sell tickets on pay for view and give 90% of it to the victims.
Too harsh for you? Then don't buy a ticket.
|DontFearDareaper ||15 May 2015 8:58 p.m. PST|
Doctor X, if you want us to stoop to the level of ISIS sure, do it that way. Lay off the Chuck Norris movies for awhile. A quick painless death with as little fanfare as humanly possible is the way it should be done and the way all right-thinking Americans should want it to be done.
| Cyrus the Great ||15 May 2015 10:45 p.m. PST|
A quick painless death
Not likely, probably 10 years of litigation, at a minimum, ahead.
|Klebert L Hall ||16 May 2015 4:53 a.m. PST|
It's unfortunate that they didn't manage to kill him when they riddled that guys poor boat with bullets during the arrest.
Lawyers have managed to make the death penalty in the US almost as stupid as, and indistinguishable from, life imprisonment.
Not to mention the absurd cost of either.
|Lou from BSM||16 May 2015 7:28 a.m. PST|
Put him in a cozy prison, in General Population. Keep him out of the isolated Death row ward and let the inmates have at him. Jeffrey Dahmer didn't last long once he was committed to the tender mercies of Gen Pop. Let the prison system work for the taxpayers for once…
| Cyrus the Great ||16 May 2015 9:31 a.m. PST|
Doctor X, if you want us to stoop to the level of ISIS sure, do it that way.
I don't think you can equate the death of a family member or the loss of limbs, hearing or eyesight with the practices carried out by ISIS. ISIS lays waste to cultures, cities, executes people whose only "crime" is being western, Shia, Sufi, various Christian sects, Asians, Jews and legitimate enemy combatants.

A lot of torture fans on this thread. Sorry, guys--this joker's going to die under the rule of law, not the rule of the mob. And that's how it should be.
|nazrat||16 May 2015 2:10 p.m. PST|

DesertSrub…you are correct sir. Excellent.

I'm a great believer in punishment fits the crime and that the perp should suffer more than the victim. On that basis, a slow, drawn out death for someone who commits multiple murders I'm quite happy with. But only if that's the law, not as an act of revenge or outrage.
|Clays Russians||28 Jun 2015 9:47 a.m. PST|
Paralyze him, from the neck down. A prisoner in his own biological jail. But then again, I've seen . I don't see justice, I see retribution. Remember the photo of the man being pushed down the street with his Tib/fib poking out of what left of his leg screaming in a wheelchair by a triage nurse and a paramedic? Yeah? Saw a lot of that overseas too. You go outside the bound of decently and civility you go outside the bounds of law.
|Jemima Fawr ||07 Jul 2015 10:24 a.m. PST|
A lot of big talk here. Strange that for thirty-odd years the same attitude wasn't taken with the murderers of British people, as well as the funders, supporters, armourers and cheerleaders of those murderers resident in Boston.
