I would be happy with life imprisonment and no parole.

The rotten cherry on top of this was pulling a minor into his nefarious scheme.

This is yet another case where I wish we can make an exception to the constitutional prohibition against "cruel and unusual punishment."

I think of all of those nice folks who were filling up their gas tanks and living a normal life when this piece of sh-t decided to take it.

I'm glad we got rid of this guy in just over 7 years. But it's pathetic that 7 years passes for "haste" in a case like this. Who cares if he's mentally ill? This kind of mental illness is just not something we can afford to subsidize to the tunes of millions of dollars for decades in a psych hospital.

Seven years is a quick execution these days. They got pissed at Ted Bundy so they executed him early in ten years ("the Bundy exception).

I think the normal wait for execution is 14 years.

“I’m not the type to demand an eye for an eye.”

OK, and I respect your respect (which is fine and good). I don’t celebrate per se; it’s more of a somber realization that discipline must be carried out.

Meanwhile: you can’t demand eye-for-eye here; there were some 12 dead victims (more injured), and only 2 perps. But I’d frankly be satisfied with that.

Agreed.

“While the death penalty may not be a deterrent,”

As with all good discipline, if forceful and TIMELY, it is.

We have become wusses who not only don’t like to actually do it, but drag out any that are condemned (only to have them released on millions of appeals). Of course it’s not a deterrent if you’re not serious about it.

I don’t think it’s so bad to be happy over the execution.

But sincerely hoping that somebody goes to hell is a mortal sin.

Why not? Choices have consequences. Why should we warehouse the wolves in our society? They can't be changed or rehavilitated. They have created victims.

Sure, because he threatened the political class in their backyard. All of our lives would be different—and there would have been no Ft. Hood terrorist attack—if the one 9/11 plane had hit the Capitol Building (where the Important People are) instead of the Pentagon (whom the Important People don’t care about).

That’s true, I haven’t, and I honestly can’t say how I would feel in that case. However, I’d like to think I could offer forgiveness. I’m not saying I don’t want severe punishment, but I’m not the type to demand an eye for an eye.

Quit the navel gazing, bud and man up. We're at war, it's us or them.

Go clean your field gear and be ready for inspection at 0200.

what motivated two shooters remains unclear

They must think we're stupid - look at his name, look at Malvo's jailhouse drawings etc.

Unbelievable, PC has killed still more at Ft Hood last week, how many more will there be before they accept the obvious ?

I did enjoy Saddam doing the "bounce" yes :)

Unfortunately, we still have to worry about the other nut...THE BOY (Malvo... I think that is the name). Will he kill again?.... He will be out when all the "tender" hearts feel sorry for him and conveniently forget what he did...

The present system has evolved into the number of appeals it has because of notorious cases of persons being proved clearly innocent after appearing to have been duly convicted and put on death row. That kind of situation will frequently result in new cautions being issued from the US Supreme Court.

Yes, but it may not be so wonderful as you imply.

Targeting the legislature would’ve been devastating - in the sense of creating mass chaos as we try to piece it back together with virtually nothing in the interim. That’s alot of people to replace.

Despise many of them as you may, but stability is a key component of a good republic, and United93’s target was as good for destroying that as any. The Moslems weren’t stupid - they didn’t hit “symbols” as the numbskulls spout; they hit important targets. (Note: Capitol WAS a target, so it would’ve been hit as well as the Pentagon, not just “instead”.)

Well, then, my advice to you is to stay off of the execution threads. That way you won't have to read people's remarks as they rejoice in the deaths of murderous scumbag terrorists and all around evil a**hats. As for me, I rejoice in it. He should have been put to death years ago, OTH, he didn't last the usual 25 years or so that many death row inmates manage.

The USA is now a better place because this scummy SOB is dead, and if that isn't something to rejoice about then nothing is.

I sheepishly admit that I hope they slipped a nice slice of raw pork between his buttocks before pushing the plunger.

I don’t think it’s an accident that his death was called at 9:11.

Look the dude didn’t say “We shouldn’t have killed him,” he said he personally doesn’t rejoice over executions. he didn’t even say the rest of the Freepers were wrong to, only that he doesn’t.

I don’t know why there are folks on this thread bitching at him.

DNA didn’t figure in this case, but it did serve in showing where the courts did indeed make a judgment contrary to truth in other cases. I have no complaint on this particular situation — it was about as close to catching somebody red handed as you can get.

Timothy McVeigh did the crime on April 19, 1995 and got the needle on June 11, 2001, so sucked oxygen for one year less than Muhammad by my calculation.

If George W. Bush were still the president, Hasan would be sent to Gitmo and waterboarded for all he’s worth to try to find out what’s still going on behind the scenes (seems he had some connections to the known 9/11 terrorists, connections that we obviously missed). As it is, Obama will probably try to hush things up by having him court martialed and shot.

(Was it the language? I’ll soften it. Was the point unclear? I was railing against “humane” lethal injection as hardly “punishment”. I’m surprised the post was pulled given the overwhelming sentiments on this thread. If something else, please explain.)

So tonight John Allen Mohammed was rendered unconscious and his heart & lungs stopped.

So what. I did that last year. No big deal.

I kid you not. Last year I had open heart surgery. I was rendered unconscious and my heart & lungs stopped for several hours. Last I recall was something about being made comfortable, then everything switched off. No pain followed for 6 hours, until I suddenly wanted to rip the breathing tube out of my throat in recovery, followed by a week of pain having had my rib cage spread with a car jack.

Punishment? Meh. He took a nap. I did the same not knowing if I’d wake up, and suffered more than he when I did.

"Now we know he will never kill again."

Replace the word kill with murder and no truer words can be spoken or written regarding this event. It is a statement that should be spoken loud and clear every time someone falsely claims the death penalty is not a deterrent to murder.

Always glad when a state besides Texas has the stones to actually kill a criminal. I’ve question the will of many states to be able to do just that.

Heck, look at all the bleeding hearts coming out for the Ft. Hood murderer. If he’s ever executed, you know the same whiny liberal crowd will be there to condemn the executers, not the executed.

its never been said out loud but I suspect the two shooters were gay lovers.....

but we wouldn't want the public to know that......gosh, bad enough that the public finally found out they were black.....

I remember clearly someone seeing them at the mall shooting....described them as dark,in a dark colored car....not a white Christian right winger in a white van...but Chief Moose didn't want to hear it...

It was one terrorist and one poor young kid that was manipulated by an older man. I feel sad for Lee Boyd Malvo. That manipulative older man made that poor young fatherless boy hurt so many people. This man is truly a monster that deserved death, simply for manipulating a teenager looking for a father figure to do most of his dirty work.
