Karma is alive and well. Good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people. It evens out again in the end. It's just sad that our tax dollars have to be used to house this scumbag for at least a year and more likely many more...
Die by my hand, I creep across the land, killing this scumbag
easy way out

Two goods came out of this. The pompous, cocky, and unjust Twinsburg Police Department was put back in there place and hopefully learned a lesson out of this and mr thompson a wacko is off the streets good day for all.

GOD will forgive if you ask him with sincerity in your heart, there is only one sin that the bible speaks of that is unforgivable and murder is not it. I don't agree with anything Thompson did, I am glad justice was served but don't ever say GOD won't forgive you because he will, he is a loving and just GOD who died for us because we are all so sinful. And that's the truth!

Standard procedure to set the execution in one year. The appeals process forces it to be delayed. Appeals in death cases are mandatory.
Hopefully, this boytoy of Casual Observer's will refrain from silly appeals like he's allergic to the death serum and take his punishment like a man.
Oh ok....i got it now! I am hoping he doesn't waste money trying to appeal either, that would be stupid and too prolonged for the family, he needs to keep his date with death.. for what he's done....JUNE 23, 2011!

I understand how alot of people feel about him getting the death penalty because if it was my mom or father i would wish the same but... we are playing God just like he did. When hes gone, hes gone. It wont stop the pain. Lock him up and throw away the key, but death should be left up to God

No matter how long the appeals process takes, this thug will die, and justly so for his crime. I just hope he suffers beatings,and is raped and demoralized a lot before they kill him. Now that would be justice. Cops aren't the pigs, all these thugs are the real animals and deserved to be put down.

THIS IS JUST AN OPINION.. NOT SAYING ANYONE IS RIGHT OR WRONG..

first of all i would like to state obviously what ashford thompson was absoulutly wrong and horrible. killing anyone is absoulutly the worst crime you can ever commit.

but how does that give anyone the right to end his life. the death penalty is wrong. pure and simple. i've always been in favor of it until you think about it. last time i checked we dont live in an "eye for an eye" society. why kill someone? who are we to judge. everyone makes mistakes, EVERYBODY, some more serious than others.. life without parole is a much harsher punishement. both ashford and the justice system are WRONG, nobody comes out feeling "justice has been served" here.

To the parents of Ashford, i'm praying for you. We are not responsible for the decisions or mistakes that our children make, but God knows and He cares about what you're going through. Please be encouraged and know that God will get you (Mom) and the family through this, and He will give you strength.

Thank you God! This is the right decision.

He deserves to DIE for what he has done!

He didn't give Josh the option of life or death-He chose to play God and take another human beings life in cold blood.

It is up to God to decide his fate now in the after life. HE CHOSE HIS Earthly fate the night he brutally shot Josh 4 times in the head!

Let him go in peace and not be filing for any appeals. Justice was served and a cold blooded killer is off the streets and headed for what he DESERVES!

What a shame we have to support him in prison for the next 20 years and he did all of his damage in less then 60 seconds. Waste of tax dollars hook him up now

You cannot put a price on a human beings life that is why there is the death penalty. Once a person is gone, they are gone and no amount of money or time served would be due justice...THAT LEAVES THE DEATH PENALTY.

Why should Ashford be allowed to breath air and enjoy the comforts of 3 hots and a cot, cable TV, a weight room, and other things these "prisons" are equiped with, while Josh is rotting away in a box in the ground leaving behind swarms of people who will love and miss him forever?

INCLUDING A DAUGHTER THAT NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO KNOW HER FATHER.

The death penalty is set aside for criminals just like Ashford! He is a MURDERER...not some petty thief or drug dealer. HE took, no, he STOLE another human beings life.

In my opinion in Death is too good for him for what he has done! May God forgive him, because Lord knows there are people that NEVER will!

The only winners in this horrific crime is our society, because another parasite has been removed from our midst. My only regret is he will die a much more humane death than this officer. 4 bullets to his empty head would be real justice, but the one thing for sure is he will go back to the belly of the beast to burn in hell for eternity. He is a cold blooded bible-thumping psycopath with no regard for anything or anybody but himself. I don't know what God he worships or what bible he reads, but my sense he is the offspring of evil and nothing that deserves to live and breathe among us. Good riddance you evil bastard!
