Prosecutors said Monday they will seek the death penalty for Colorado movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes despite his offer last week to plead guilty in exchange for avoiding a death sentence.
If they allow James Holmes to be a lifer after what he's done, the justice system encourages anyone contemplating mass murder to do it, painting the worst sentence case scenario as life in prison. Free TV, free recreation, free internet, fee room and board ect..
People who do these crazed killings have a death wish and don't usually worry about the consequences. All this trial will accomplish is making sure more publicity for him and the lawyers involved!
Deleting my comment was the wrong thing to do. Now I'm grumpy.
WHEN are we going to wake up and smell the roses? The ONLY justice for these types of crimes is death! Sane, insane does not matter! We pour our hearts and prayers out when they happen and then argue what the punishment should be! We must trust our legal system but it has way to many problems that need to be solved. WE put criminals in prison and then give them "rights" and even let them out early for "good" behavior? There are certain crimes where there is no doubt as to who committed them or to guilt! In these cases their "right" to a speedy trial should be paramount and then put to death!!!
