That would depend on an evaluation to determine if there is any real chance of rehabilitation. If rehab is deemed to be a pointless exercise in futility, then execute and move on with our lives.

That's what I've been wondering about this entire time his trial has been going on... He could be a leading voice in Muslim communities against jihad... maybe.

Provided the evidence corroborating the perpetrator is irrefutable, and considering the atrocities that have been committed as a consequence of the bombers actions, I unanimously agree that the death penalty be a suitable punishment

Yes. He killed 3 people including an 8-year-old by setting off those bombs. By violating others' rights, he has forfeited his own rights.

I don't think he should be executed.

Why not?

I'm against the death penalty in general, and I think that putting him in prison for life without parol is a better punishment. However, that's just my opinion. According to US law I think he qualifies for the death penalty.

People assimilate to prison and it stops being so bad once you settle in.

And some people wish for death. Maybe we should ask everyone their preference, and then do the opposite.

Eh, I think that the Boston Bomber deserves the DP. That's just me though.

Again, this is just my opinion, but I would say prison is still a rather unpleasant environment to be in, regardless of whether you're "used to it" or not. In addition, once you're dead you literally feel nothing, so if the goal is to give him the harshest punishment prison would most likely give him more pain.

Well its up to the courts. When you so egregiously violate societies laws you forfeit your life to the will of the society trying you.

As mentioned before, I agree that under US law he can be penalized with death for his crimes. It's just my opinion that he should be put in jail rather than die.

I don't even believe he did it. First off they do not benefit from bombing a marathon. It isn't even a political target. The event was meant to maximize media attention.

Why would anybody want to maximize media attention? To answer that we'd have to look at who stands to gain from such media attention. It looks like the government got to test out how easy it would be to violate posse comitatus, if they justified using it on a small scale to see what would come of it.

People were forced under a mandatory lockdown, the military searched everybody's home without a warrant, and the media applauded the whole process.

The test run proved to be better than expected, and now the government has one more weapon they can effectively use against the people. I'd bet money that their Patsy will get the death penalty. We will never hear from him again and know the truth of how he got wrapped up in this.

Kids need to learn not to respond to the CIA ads looking for employees. This is what they do. That boy was a CIA asset and a straight A student who was popular at school and friends with everyone. If they can do that to him, they can do it to anybody.

His intention was to kill as many people as possible, he failed at that and at life in general. He has no use for anyone in society and will never again contribute in a productive manner. He will otherwise rot in Jail eating up 3 meals a day and lots of tax dollars until he dies. I cant think of a better case for the Death Penalty.

The test run

I love this analysis.
