Jared Lee Loughner, the Arizona shooter who killed six people and wounded 13 others -- including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords -- pleaded guilty to his charges Tuesday. Loughner won't be executed because of his plea deal, but he will face a life sentence in prison without the opportunity for parole. Do you think the plea deal is fair? Or did you want Jared Loughner to get the death penalty?

    He wasted a kid, the other prisoners usually don't let that pass.

    As a Christian I don't believe the State has the right to kill anyone, that said I hope the Lord will save this man and use him for good in prison.

    Like I said before, death is the easy way out. Spending your life in prison seems hell of a lot harder than just drifting away with a cocktail of drugs.

    It's fair because it's the law. Now let me count how many "Christians" here cry for blood.

    I am a Christian and I am totally against the Death Penalty.

    I'm an Atheist, and I too am against the death penalty. But if you compare the Capital Punishments in the Bible Belt, you'll see that the so-called Christians hold the record.

    I see your point, there are a lot of people who claim to be Christians and are not. When Jesus comes back they are in for a big surprise.

    NO I want this person to be seen every day that before he is purr to death by firing squad and he has no mask the shooters have a mask I do not want them to suffer a guilt trip one shot at the base of the brain one in the Nuts one Jin the arm Pitt then leave Him out side for the coyotes to finish

    Murder (not manslaughter) should always warrant the death penalty. In the words of Bill Engvall, "Here in Texas, if you kill someone, we're gonna kill you right back."

    For people like him a prison sentence could very well be a death sentence.

    We'll probably spend $50,000 or more a year on him for the rest of his unproductive life. He's young, to that two million wasted dollars. Someone should put a knife in his head in prison.

    Don't think he'll last very long in the prison population. If we get lucky he will kill himself after being raped night after night. Every cloud has a silver lining.

    He's never getting out of prison. I'd say that's an equally severe punishment.

    We have the longest sentences in the world, privatized prisons housing inmates convicted for minor victimless crimes, inmates used for what should be civilian jobs, and the country is outraged at a plea bargain. Amazing.

    Did you know that the death penalty actually costs more to taxpayers than keeping the inmates for life? Weird, I know, but if you don't believe me look it up. Our entire prison system needs an overhaul, but for the time being, execution is NOT the answer.

    The plea "deal" is never fair; however, it does prove to be quite logical, most of the time.

    He's in Arizona...They call them "zonies" for a reason. 6 killed? That's not enough? This guy brought a loaded assault weapon to a political gathering and just started killing people. Now he's got life without parole? Who's kidding who here? Bipolar or not, this guy has not done good to the greater good of humanity. Get it over. But do it quietly.
    And quit calling him a "Arizona shooter". The man is a killer. call him a "Arizona killer" and the wishy-washy crap goes away. By the way, what does Romney think of this?

    If our death penalty were more painful/public/embarrassing i would care but since its typically just a sleep shot in front of a few people 20 years after sentencing...i would rather him live the rest of his life in captivity.Hopefully his cell mate is a large African American liberal named bubba.

    Man, that is so racist. Why not a large, white, con-man, republican male rapist named Bubba?

    Umm because large white men have small penises and because a liberal would take it personal and drop it real deep to teach him a lesson.

    Well, that Arian race in the joint seems to get off taking care of those who are not Anglo/ makes it better he be put to sleep. Afterall, with all the population explosion going on the whole prison-sex thing just sounds so carnal. Eliminate the dude. He executed, thus he must be executed. It's life/death. But it still sounds racists when, afterall, not all black dudes named Bubba have the penis your'e mythical about.
  • macaction mind-pilot 2012/08/15 15:56:42

    How many black dudes named bubba have introduced you to their penis? It's Aryan race and FYI most of those rednecks are not Aryan. It's very rare to find anyone in the United States that is "pure" anything. I say "pure" in quotes because we are one species with the same DNA. Outside appearance is solely due to the geological location of our ancestors. White skin just means you came from an area with lots of overcast and in NO way makes you special.

    LOL....I can't believe you would retort this. It's hillarious. You like saying "penis" don't you? Execute the dude.Like he executed.
  • macaction mind-pilot 2012/08/21 16:21:58

    I can't believe you tried to dig racism out of my previous post. You should focus on completing your sentences..."like he executed" what?

    He executed 6 people, including a small child. Besides I just read what you wrote and commented that you needed to imput a black guy? Besides there's other schools of thought on the white/black pigmentation making a bit difficult for me to accept your thought about white people and "overcast" areas. Hmmmmm?
  • macaction mind-pilot 2012/08/23 00:11:27

    Tsk,tsk, you hillbilly's are all the same. You don't comprehend the sentence and when you take on a paragraph you blame the teacher for giving you too much homework. The planet is "ENG"......But you couldn't spell that either, even, if, you practiced.Hmmmmmm!
  • macaction mind-pilot 2012/08/30 03:35:27

    Did you mean Hill billy? The planet is "ENG"? What the heck are you smoking? How many dots you gonna toss in there for the Ellipsis? Your teachers have a lot of explaining to do.

    Oh, you're another one of those goof-balls: Just kill the bastard and be done with it. You don't need to pay him to live in prision. You can't fix stupid. So, get rid of it. Get a grip. And, yes...it's HILLBILLY! If you read a little more you wouldn't question the sylables. They are in tact. ENG! Yeah. Easy for you to spell. Easy for us to brand on your forehead.
