Make no mistake, the death penalty does not deter crime. If you have any doubt, go to your library and read Delfino and Day's capital punishment books, Death Penalty USA 2003 - 2004 and/or Death Penalty USA 2005 - 2006. A word of warning: these books describe some of the most horrific and gruesome murders imaginable and if you are like me you'll get nightmares.
I take it you don't know the details on this murder. What part of it do you consider non-horrific and non-gruesome? How would you like to be driving down the road and ... How about you read the details and try to get a very good nights sleep and then go for a good long drive in the morning.

How about doing to him what he did to them??? Let him see how it feels!

He probably ate better than most of us if not all of us. Did you read what he requested for his 'supposedly last meal'? OMG Again..WE fed him wayyyyyyyyy too damn well.

I believe Utah still offers firing squad as an option.
Personally, I like the idea of hanging a little better.

I hope he stays in hell with the devil twice as long as his appeals. The only thing he eats in hell is fire. He's probably lost a lot of weight by now.
