The problem is it will take so long and we feed him.

When he stood up in the boat that was the time!

Here is a terrorist that is going to be tried and sentenced in the United States. I agree with the decision to seek the death penalty and I hope the find him guilty and fry him. I also feel our legal system is strong enough to close the Guantonimo prison and bring those inmates here to face trail. Guantonimo is a stain on the conscious of the United States and needs to be closed.

One never knows whether killing the killer deters further killing but if it's the law, it's necessary to follow.

As far as Gitmo, even though it has nothing to do with the question...I agree it should have been closed long ago. These people should have been tried in a military court asap and sentenced to whatever that court decided. To keep them locked up without a trail and in many cases let them go to kill or maim our men and women a second time is just wrong.

I'm a no. Opposed to the death penalty in general, so....

Not sure if there is anyone else who posts here who feels likewise, but I'll be the minority.

I'm not opposed to seeing a person get what's coming to him or her, but our system for dispensing such justice doesn't seem to allow for it. We can't even figure out which chemicals to use in applying the death penalty out of fear the condemned will consciously experience some part of the process. As it stands now, it takes decades of litigation to finally get the sentence served. They might as well just give life sentences because the end result is the same.

Tsarnaev is a young man so he has many, many days of waking up inside a prison cell with no chance of ever getting out ahead of him. Why cheat him out of that?

"Tsarnaev is a young man so he has many, many days of waking up inside a prison cell with no chance of ever getting out ahead of him. Why cheat him out of that? " That would be cruel and unusual punishment.

This thinking is living proof as to why our National Security is always jeopardized and at risk. Those who play the "conscious" and bleeding heart "image" saga, physically and mentally make me sick. Those that do not have any total regard for the safety and protection of other Americans. How can anybody believe it can be this simple?

Guantanamo, not Guantonimo, does not have a solution or easy out. It is not that simple as TripleD so eloquently wrote. Guantanamo is not a prison. These are not inmates. They are not even considered prisoners of war for all the obvious logical reasons. This is a classified detention camp.

"Legal system"? Strong enough? That is so funny because that is the furthest thing for being the problem even though it is still a problem. Because we have detainees that we do not have laws on the books to cover or charge them or even have jurisdiction to give them a trial, not trail. Those countries will not take them back to try them in their own legal systems. We are stuck with them. They are not our detainees, they belong to other countries. Also, we have detainees in that detention camp, that if we were to charge them, those charges would give them a slap on the wrist. They would be out on the streets to carryout what we prevented and stopped dead in their tracks with their plans to “kill Americans at any cost, including their death as victory signature.

Here is what I believe. I think anybody that plays this sympathy when it comes to the evil, monsters being detained there. Should be forced to spend the day there. So they can get a first hand experie

first hand experience in dealing with what our military, with an arsenal at their disposal, deal with to keep them controlled and confined. That reality would change many sympathizers.

Spend about a week going through a nice speedy set of appeals and whatever other proceedings he has a right to and then Strap 2 pressure cooker bombs to the side of his face and have him light the fuse.

I have one Mtlhead. How about we put him out in a secluded field and put him in a running suit and have him run in a circle for an entire day with planted bombs beneath his feet hidden in the ground. Then have the victim's of this evil destructive POS who had fun with them, holding the detonator's.

Cruel and unusual? Ask the victim's families and those he maimed for life? I still say send him to Cuba and let him celebrate with his counter parts. Hopefully, one of our pride and joys confined to tolerate and control these POS will trip and fall on him.

Watchdog, You can run but you cannot hide from your lies. I said, "You said that there was a pending case against President Obama in the Supreme Court." You lied, "No I didn't. Never once did I say that. You again are trying to manipulate to your advantage."

I said, "Second, There is no case pending before the United States Supreme Court concerning the Presidents Birth Certificate. Check supremecourt.gov and search it yourself. Once again this is all BS. " You responded with, "Third, court case: 12A606 on the SCOTUS. Don't ever call me a liar again. "

She specifically told me, "come back here and you tell everybody what you found." That is what I did. I said, "There is no case pending before the United States Supreme Court concerning the Presidents Birth Certificate." That was correct, there is no case pending. She accused me of making up lies to bash republicans over that Birth Certificate crap. I did not make up any lies. I consider the remark that President Obama was under subpoena to present his birth certificate a lie, but I will give her the chance to show me I am wrong about that. I am really trying to be reasonable here.

Now go ahead and spin that into another lie.

I can see keeping up with these conversations isn't easy is it? A couple of these comments left me with what the heck is that about. So, can I ask what the death penalty for the Marathon Bomber has to do with President Obama's Birth Certificate and serving in the Military?

I realize that we have a lousy national news media for our pick and choose selective news coverage. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised that somehow these three got connected somewhere along the line. The internet is an open wound of million and one untruths, half truths and a trillion different opinions. I don't think it is even possible to get to the real truth these days. :)

On second thought, might be safer to stick to the news poll. I support the death decision, sooner than later.

Hi James, welcome aboard. Essentially, we have daily disputes usually related to the topic questions, and sometimes they spill over from a previous day's topic. It appears we have one of those situations here now. Anyway, throw out your opinions, wait for someone to attack them or commend them, and then respond accordingly....its fun!

Fun? It is a riot. Brace yourself, you will get the wrath from some, the war on words, grammar checkers, freedom fighters, Obozo lovers, IQ checkers, name callers, google experts and some that demand evidence and proof for every word you type, battle of the wits and some, as in below, those that just can't stand the victory of defeat and won't give up. Politics are the killer. For the most part, lot of nice people and some that will bug the*****out of you. But hey, that is what makes America great. Go with the flow. Raise your flag and take a stand.

"One never knows whether killing the killer deters further killing but if it's the law, it's necessary to follow." It is up for debate whether killing the killer deters others from killing, but we do know for certain that killing the killing is a 100% sure way to keep that particular killer from killing again.
