There are 9 losers left on death row, as guests of Utah taxpayers who are tired of supporting them. I suppose it would be 'cruel and unusual' to send them out with Gardner. Oh, wait, they killed people and didn't think THAT was cruel and unusual. Some of their murders, if not all, were far more cruel than what rg is getting

True chastity - More like 10 wrongs would make at least a dent in 'right'. Also, the 'wrongs' are only in the eyes of the individual (you). It is guaranteed that if the DP is carried out, these animals will NOT kill again.

No, 2 wrongs don't make 1 right. BUT!If you want them to sit in prison for the rest of their lives, then you support them.Let the state of utah take your money to feed, house, school and pay for all the stupid lawsuites(like the one who sued because he didn't like what kind of peanutbutter that was served) they file, and we pick up the cost for their defence.Tell those family's who have lost the loved ones that you are willing along with all those of you who want life in prison, that you be willing for the rest of their lives and yours, to pay for all of their needs.
Do you really think those on death row really care about those family's they have destroyed.

Not only do these killers deserve to be killed, but they deserve to die in the same exact manner in which their victim died. i.e. you strangle someone then you get strangled. Plus, why does it take 25 years to execute people...execute in 3 years and if they are filing appeals then thats how long they have to do it. Justice takes way to long to happen in this country.

chastity, if you are so distraught, go to the capital at 9 and join with rocky and his friends to sob and cry at this horrible injustice. However, keep in mind that there are also those who will be CELEBRATING.

I understand that murder is murder and i may not be making any sense of what i'm going to say but i dont think that after this long Gardner should be executed. He has spent his entire life in prison regretting, apologizing and paying for what he did. But then i read all of these stories for the other 9 people on death row and i say hell yeah kill them. The murders the rest of these people committed where so much more violent and disgusting
as apposed to just shooting a man/'s. I know murder is murder no matter how committed but i believe Gardner has changed and really wants to do something to help others with the time in life he would have had left.

MIXDfeelings #9 You are another one that needs to be at the capitol with rocky and the rest of the BH libs tonight at 9. You can all cry, moan and whatever else you feel like doing. How do YOU know he regrets, apologized for and has paid for what he did??? If you are so certain he has changed and really wants to do something to help others, you are always free to do it for him. If you can find a way to keep him around, please offer to support him yourself as the rest of us are tired of paying for him. Oh, and as soon as the remaining 9 get closer to being taken out, they, too, will be heartily and vocally sorry for what they did.

I'm offended by the lack of racial diversity on death row! I am thinking of alerting the ACLU over this matter! It seems to me those men were targeted tried and convicted because of their race.

What kind of idiot makes this comment? Check out the jails, prisons and courtrooms and see who is there....then maybe you will change your mind. But, for the record, Ronnie Lee is a low life white boy, so race has nothing to do with this. If you do the crime, do the time.

Ronnie Lee Gardner CHOSE to die by firing squad. Did you get that? HE CHOSE IT.

The people he shot and killed didn't get a choice. Did you get that? THEY HAD NO CHOICE. He DECIDED to SHOOT and KILL them.

Frankly, right now, I am thinking about all the people in this world, infants especially, that have died at the hands of 'human beings' that CHOSE to KILL them.

I'm not really feeling any injustice here.

Wow what a back handed racist comment.
Since he is white race has nothing to do with it. Ergo only black people are on death row for being black or only black people can be victims of racism.

Nice.
