Kill him. They should kill anybody that murders, hurts children, molests children etc. They should all be killed right away and save our tax dollars that pay for them to stay in prison for years on end.
Excuse me mr. shorty but you should research the case a bit more before you ignorant comments; Thou shall not kill should that not also should stand for our State and Government?

If you weren't an idiot you would know that the actual commandment is thou shalt not murder. And in the same book there is the phrase an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
Perhaps a book of contradicting fairy tales isn't the best thing to construct your life after.
Unless you want to be a hypocrit and pick and choose what to follow.

Generally I support the death penalty, however in this case I believe
this one is a big mistake. All respect due to the families whom lost aa loved one at the hands of Mr. Gardner, however Mr. Gardner's
childhood should be taken into serious account. I don't think it was
in his case. It is one thing if a child comes from a good home with
good upbringing and turns out bad like the recent Van Der Sloot case
but Mr. Gardner's sad childhood wasn't his fault. Whereas Mr. Van
Der Sloot, lies and shows no remorse, Mr. Gardner has shown remorse
and want's to do something good for troubled youth. I will pray for
his soul and also for that of his victoms.

God is a tool to help those who don't understand reality. Murder is a tool for those who understand reality but choose to ignore it for their own gain. Drugs are a tool to escape this reality. The point being we all need some kind of "crutch" to support our meager lives as we float around on this marble. With that said: God is an invention of man, Kill this a-hole Gardener, legalize weed (off topic) and just live your life as best you can.

The land that you are going to kill a killer is not your land. It belongs to the Medewiwins, and the Medewiwins exonerate this killer because he killed those same kind of people that ordered Medewiwins killed. After you kill our Medewiwin, Medewiwin's fury will be seen everywhere in that stolen land. If you read this don't be afraid you will not see fire and brimstone rather the opposite life and the people that you killed will be there as your brothers. I know you are afraid of the after life, but don't fear right after you die, those that condemn you will go into the fire and brimstone you are afraid of going. Sh.. come back as bird and I will leave you delicious food in the back of the apartment I live in. Peace and don't be afraid that is what they love to see. Go head boys and girls don't wait for orange sack to die, pour out your anger on them.

My grandfather is a preacher and one this he has always taught us is an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth...I even asked him what he thought about this case and he said "That man deserves to be killed...not only killed but killed in the same manner in which he killed" while that fits this case what about all those people who kill their victims slowly yet all the murder gets a quick stick in the arm and then they just fall asleep. I want you all to keep this in mind...while Ronnie Gardner doesn't deserve your thoughts and prayers his family and the victims families do.

I've been reading comments on this Gardner fella for a couple days now, and it seems folks are confused about this Condemned mans future in the here after. Everyone seems to be convinced he is going to "Hell" as most refer to it. He may very well be, But what about you? The folks making all these comments. Folks,according to the good book, there are no degrees of sin, and what I mean by that is if you tell a lie, the Lord holds that in the same contempt as if you take someone elses innocent life. No one on Earth is without sin. Accept Jesus as you're lord and savior and you shall have salvation.
You are right GOD will judge him, so we will send him to get judged at 1201 am

I wish they didn't put the black hoods over the heads of the condemned
I think it would be priceless to see the look on his face 1 second before just to see the uncertainty and anticipation.
He deserves it.

Before this story, I had no idea that death by firing squad was still in effect. Does anyone know why he chose to die by this method?
He knew it was a very rare form of execution and he wanted to use it to delay his execution as long as possible.

What I find incredibly ironic is that he used a firearm to commit both of his murders.
