While discussing the shooting in Arizona with some friends, one of them mentioned that we should execute him as soon as possible. Initially I
disagreed with him and still do to some degree (mostly out of principle). I believe in due process and the right to a quick and fair trial with
proper representation but the more I think about it, the more I find myself siding with him. Some of the strongest arguments I can initially think of
1 - There may be a(n) accomplice(s)
2 - He's obviously crazy
3 - Questions remain in terms of preperation, motive, and awareness
4 - Mysterious details surfacing
This thead is open to any discussion on the topic of Jared Loughner and the arguments listed above. I have been extremely interested in the other
threads discussing any hidden meaning in his description of a bird and his youtube videos so any discussion on those topics is encouraged. I believe
there is much more to this story, especially considering the connections he has to his target. In terms of his punishment, the death penalty may seem
harsh, but he is clearly guilty and it costs roughly $42,000 of taxpayer money per year to keep one man in federal prison. Is it worth it?
Especially considering how horrific the shooting was?
