OH now that he is facing death in a month, does he care about human life, namely his own and I don't care how long people sit on death row, if that is their sentence, so be it and I do hope that the parole board does not grant clemency because this will open up a can of worms, ie, other death row inmates will try to pull the same thing and i believe if you have done a heinous crime, then you do not have the right to live so fire up them rifles boys and let it rip!!

What the he__ is this? No way! excuting him now is not cruel and unusual punishment. This would be just caused. Gardner should not be allowed to wear a hood. He should see and hear what is going to happen to this monster. If I was one of the victims relatives I would gladly be on the firing squad> I wouldn't care if I had the live bullet or not. It would just satisfying to do sometime for closure for both families.

Oh, definitely, let's give murderers more rights and more chances at life than they gave their victims! Creeps like this, I'm only sorry it's taken so long to get him to the firing squad; and he might even be given life now - pathetic.

What I find obscene is how different people who claimed to be Christians want, instead of forgiving and turning the other cheek, want revenge at any cost making their Christianity as phony as a three dollar bill. The state of Utah should instead of been another eye for an eye, instead of turning the other cheek, learn a thing or two from the other religious lepers, the Amish, that instead of revenge gave forgiveness, just like Christ would have wanted. I don't understand that if abortion is such a horrible sin for "Christians", why not the death penalty. The Ten Commandments don't mention any thing about abortion, but they do have the fifth commandment. We should join the rest of civilized world about abolishing the death penalty and treat criminals like Norway, instead of Saudi Arabia. It's much better to be we with Christ than with tyranny.

to emile zola: if you find justice so obscene, pehaps you will want to come demonstate at the prison IF Utah ever gets enough guts to administer the dp. I hardly see housing, feeding and providing medical care to this animal for 25 years as 'revenge at any cost'. I doubt that with your do gooder attitude it will make a difference, but gardner's second murder was witnessed publicly by several people so there is NO way he will be a martyr or a 'mistake'. HE DID EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS ACCUSED OF. Here's an idea: If you are so distraught over the DP, perhaps you will want to offer to support this creep yourself until he dies a natural death. Most of the rest of us DON'T.

Weak people like you are the largest part of the problem.
If you do not have the spine to FIX problems, let those who do deal with it.

The guy didn't care about life when he took someone elses life. Death with be his only salvation, mabey then he will meet the person he took out of this world and then he can ask him for forgivness.

I think Ronnie Lee Gardner is a candy-ass, a Utah jury found him guilty, the judge told him he is going forfit his life, now quit screwing around and do him. A Claymore mine works wonders at a time like this. Just remember, THIS SIDE TOWARDS THE ENEMY

I am not a religious person, but I do live in Utah because of the family values.
We are RELEASING criminals here in Utah due to budget cuts...WOW!!! that is no different than saying it is ok to commit a crime here, because you will be let out early on your sentence.
MY solution, if you are guilty of murder, without a reasonable doubt, just like Ronnie Lee Gardner is, EXECUTE him within 30 days of conviction.
That way my taxes are not supporting him AND we just made a space for someone else to occupy INSTEAD of putting the criminals back on the street and making it less safe for all of us!

When we are talking Christianity, we can't choose which commandments to follow and when to seek revenge. Christianity means forgiveness, and last I checked, the sin, crime don't come into play. I could understand that need to take revenge, but that is not Christianity and if you or the others that don't understand the meaning of Christianity want to an eye for an eye, have it your way, but you are no Christian. Get it? I'll rather with Norway's way of dealing with crimes that with how Saudi Arabia and the U.S. deal with it.

Separation of church and state, remember that one? Christianity isn't executing this man, the state is.

Also, forgiveness and just punishment are two entirely different things.
