  • If it was unjustifiable homicide than they should be killed in the most brutal way possible.

  • I think if they were tortured in the same way they tortured their victim, but weren't killed, it would have a good outcome of their change in thought.

  • Think about it. If this said murderer is a psychotic maniac that killed his victim in the most brutal way possible, would killing him/her really be justice? Doing so would make those who were forced to pretty much recreate the murder monsters as well.

  • Now that I think about it, these people believe that they'll never get caught. So it wouldn't have much effect, if any.

  • Drop off a cliff into a burning pile of 5 billion unmarked bills

  • Justice is not revenge; which is why a Judge is the one to give a punishment, not the family that is related to the person who died.

  • They will be killed in they way chosen by the victims family .

  • hypocrisy are revenge aren't justice

  • They shouldn't be killed at all

@PetersSmith Good point. Notice that I didn't vote. I just wanted to see what others think.

Dr_Obvious: It's actually really creepy if you think about it.
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T00:29:38.5959101-05:00
The reason I posted this is because I read about it in a sci-fi book a few decades ago. Two to the chest, and one to the head. Just like his victim.
PetersSmith says2014-07-08T00:32:08.9918000-05:00
Dr_Obvious: That is a very "clean" murder. Nothing like some other serial killers have done. Or could you imagine what they did before/after they killed the person? Sickening that cops would be forced to do that.
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T00:32:14.2958000-05:00
Then they put his brain in a robot, and sent him out to kill aliens that were attacking us. LOL! Wish I could remember the title. I'd like to read it again.
PetersSmith says2014-07-08T00:33:08.5370000-05:00
Dr_Obvious: If they shot him in the head, like the victim, then how did they use his brain?
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T00:33:41.1878000-05:00
What can I say, peter. We live in a sick society.

Dr_Obvious: You're 49, that's not old enough to make the "failing memory" excuse.
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T00:35:31.6670000-05:00
OK. I can't remember exactly how they killed him. It's been over twenty years since I read it. Give an old man, with a failing memory, a break. LOL

"Dr_Obvious: You're 49, that's not old enough to make the "failing memory" excuse." It is when you've had Multiple Sclerosis for ten years. Also, do you remember all of the details of a book you read 20 years ago?

Dr_obvious: I apologize for your seizures, but I'm not even twenty yet. I was trying to give you a compliment, but I guess that fell in the water.
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T00:48:00.1439049-05:00
LOL! Compliment accepted. It helps if you use a smiley, or something, to let people know you're joking.
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T00:52:51.5575466-05:00
And I don't have seizures. MS affects the brain and central nervous system. What it does is destroy the protective coating around nerves, causing damage. That's why some victims have memory problems. The connections to those memories don't exist anymore. I read about a school teacher with MS. One day she showed up to teach class, and realized that she couldn't remember her multiplication tables. She had to learn them all over again.

What if it's something really stupid way to die?
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T00:56:46.0876447-05:00
Stupid, how? I'm intrigued. Tell me more.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-08T00:57:27.2217683-05:00
Force fed an eraser until the victim chokes. Death by aggressive rape. Colombian tongue tied.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-08T00:58:34.3957989-05:00
Death by being forced to hold in gas
PetersSmith says2014-07-08T00:59:24.1286228-05:00
Death by watching Twilight without any food or water while also being subject to Chinese water-torture.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-08T01:01:39.4586228-05:00
Death by terrorist attack on pentagon
Dr_Obvious says2014-07-08T01:02:50.2671887-05:00
LOL! Death by butt plug? Gross!
