ArLyne's Diamonds

A running commentary of ideas

Friday, August 30, 2013


I'm actually sorry that the Ft. Hood killer was given the death penalty.  That's giving him exactly what he wants.  He is now a martyr - or at least he will be when they actually execute him.

I would have much preferred life without the possibility of parole - with lots of solitary confinement - to stop him from using us as his voice.

If you watched any part of the trial - or read summaries in the newspapers, you know that he sat their smuggly enjoying the show and his opportunity to become a martyr.

I've been told that these extremists believe that death will give them many virgins in heaven (or whereever they go).

so, isn't life in prison worse than death for this guy?
