just about an hour/half hour ago the jury convicted him of murdering his pregnant wife and unborn son recommended on december 13, 2004 that he be put to death.

although he definately deserves to die, i feel as if its an easy way out. i wish they gave him life without parole in jail. there he could rot away and think about the horrible thing hes done.

:(

He'll have lots & lots of time to think about it: the appeals will drag on for at least 10 years. In the meantime, he'll be in a death row cell, allowed out only an hour per day, with very minimal human contact. Sounds good for him. May he rot there.

I cant believe the death penalty still exsists. Dont people understand it is the easy way out? He deserves to rot in the darkest, dampest corner of the earth until he dies. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-3.gif

'Life in prison' is inhumane, expensive, and too much of a bother.

I support efficiency, lower taxes, and less paperwork.

When is it okay to participate in the ending of someone's life?

The Death Penalty is no more immoral than Life Imprisonment.

I say this because from my view, why should we waste our taxes etc on keeping them in jail, its not cheap to keep them. But said that, my government also hand out Benefits to any Immigrant enterinmg the UK, so its all wrong and i dont really understand it enough to say anything meaningful.

While I agree he should suffer and rot in prison, I am so sickened and angered by his crime that I hope they fry the ******* http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/violent.gif

Precisely, why delay the inevitable.

People who want Life instead of Death confuse me, how is being locked up forever better than just getting it over with?

All prison does for ppl who are there for life is cost money we need for ppl who might actually one day contreibute again to society.

Besides, why takre the risk of somoene escaping when you dont have to?

People can repend, people can change. If one would frame you into a crime you didn't do, if you were alive, there would be a chance of the truth coming up. If you were dead already... well, there would be a chance too, it wouldn't make you too much difference, though.

I think it's abuse of power. Who diserves death and who doesn't is something very argueable. Too argueable to be given such an absolute penalty.

The Death Penalty should be legal in any nation that also allows abortion no matter why they allow it.

I don't have that many reservations about abortion, though. I think a woman should have control on what's still part of her own body. But that's just me.

draco, just out of curiosity, why do you think life in prison is just as immoral as getting the death penalty?

If you are in prison and you are proved innocent, you can be released. If you are executed, you can't exactly be brought back to life. That is a big part of why I am against the death penalty.

i agree with you shrensh, but in Scotts case, i really dont think hed be found innocent a few years down the road.

i know my nanas friend's sister used to date a mob boss and he was sent to jail for something he didnt do, he obviously has done bad things, but this particular thing he didnt do. after about 5 years in jail he was released because he was found innocent.

And yes sometimes innocent ppl get wrongfully accused...which is why the state automatically appeals Death Sentences.

Double standards is nothing to be proud of.

I am so happy! I read that Scott gets to look out a tiny cell window that overlooks the very bay that his wife and child's body were dumped in. Now, isn't that fitting! And, he'll probably be there at least 10 years judging by the past appeals in that state. I'm not sure if I'm for or against the death penalty, but in his case : http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

In all Death Penalty cases - the convict gets to Appeal. Either way - Death or Life in Prison. He'll get what he deserves.

Justice for Lacy and Connor. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif
