The jurors are to be commended for such a learned ruling in this case.

It is nice to know that reason can prevail in such an emotional atmosphere.

My prayers are with them.

They asked OUTSTANDING questions, which shows that they understood the necessity to comprehend the instructions given to them by the judge.

There is noone who can look at the events that took place as far as the jury's deliberations go, and say that Bobby did not have a fair trial. They considered everything.

They are better than I am because my mind was made up after the second day (In partial Thanks to the annoying banter of his lawyers)

the death penalty is clearly called for in this case, and why even bother with appeals? this case is cut and dry... forget about 25 years on death row

The death penalty? I'm not sure how I feel about that. Why should Cutts be allowed to take the easy way out? Why should he be put to death and not have to think about what he has done...I think death is just too easy. Let him sit in prison and suffer for what he has done.

And what good is the death penalty anyway? Even if Cutts is put to death it won't bring back Jesse and her unborn baby.

life in prison is cruel and unusual, justice should reflect mercy

and making the taxpayers foot the bill for his care and well being for the rest of his life is also cruel, and should be unusual

this isnt about bringing anyone back from the dead, no one ever suggested capital punishment was

Wow. Thats all I can really say about this. As said before, remember Lacy Peterson? Murdered by a white guy. Remember Hannah Hill? Murdered by a white man. And the woman in Ravenna? Murdered and had her unborn child cut out of her by a white woman? He stands out to you and he's being followed so closely because he's black and she's white. The white folks do it just as much. No need to play the race card on here.

I am all for the death penalty (though am still not sure what I feel about sentencing in this case), I've read studies that show putting someone on Death Row actually costs taxpayers more money because the convict is guaranteed certain types of appeals before being executed. Convicts given a life sentence may appeal, but the number of appeals are limited...where Death Row appeals are not.

So, from a pure economic perspective...life in prison is cheaper than execution.

Wait...keeping a prisoner in prison is cheaper than throwing his dead ass into a grave?

Well then. As an Ohio taxpayer, I'd toss in an extra $20.00 just to see this guy fry. Slow-roasted, please.

I agree with you. I actually find it interesting, and riduculously stupid, that it costs more to execute someone than to keep them in jail for life.

I don't understand why someone convicted and sentenced to die should be given so many opportunities to appeal....especially if there is a confession or damning physical evidence.

In the event of a confession or damning physical evidence...take them out the back door of the courthouse and push them into traffic, for all I care.

I, like you, would be willing to pay money out-of-pocket to kill some of the heathens I've seen go through the judicial system...adults and juveniles alike!

How, exactly, does it cost more to execute a prisoner? I guess that's where I'm getting hung up.

And I'd like him slow-roasted as well. I want him to feel every damn flame for what he did.

Prisoners on death row are granted unlimited appeals...which means legal fees, court costs, etc...all paid for by the taxpayers.

Prisoners in for life are limited in the number of appeals they can file. Fewer attorney fees and such.

Yes, but you'd think a shot in the arm or a short rope would be cheaper - especially since we know, without a doubt, when the prisoner in question did the crime.

Right. That's what most people think. They figure that keeping someone alive for their natural life should be more expensive than ending that life early by execution.

But, in reality...it's not. The appeals are expensive and consume time and resources...of the prison, lawyers and judges.

Is it right? Absolutely not. Like I said...if there's a confession or damning physical evidence...push 'em into traffic outside the courthouse or administer the shot immediately after sentencing.

Unfortunately, bleeding hearts would never allow it. They're the reason we have to give these people every chance to find a legal loophole to save their wretched lives.
