Federal prosecutors announced today that they were going to seek the death penalty for the Boston bombing suspect who is still alive. Do you think he deserves the death penalty or should he spend the rest of his life in jail? This article explains why they are seeking the death penalty http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/2014/01/30/federal-prosecutors-seek-death-penalty-against-marathon-bombing-suspect-dzhokhar-tsarnaev/C9wfpKi5WrETurHtqlTIMK/story.html

Is this a death penalty that will have them on death row for 20 years or whatever or will it happen within a year or so?

Death Penalty. I mean, he killed people. No person who kills innocent people should be allowed to live. I mean, this isn't a case where it was accidental, this guy bombed a marathon. This isn't like where someone accidentally pushes some guy down concrete stairs. Not only that, but he killed multiple people. I don't feel there's anything more to explain here.

Do you think if they were to just kill him, that he would actually pay for his crimes? If he is kept alive he can suffer for his crimes killing seems just like the best thing to happen from his point of view as they don't care about dying in the first place.

He's going to pay for his sins after he dies. I don't want to bring religion into this though. But yes, I do believe that he should be given the death penalty. I just wish the death penalty would kill the criminal the same way they killed the victims. It would be much fairer that way.

Well and i am basing this on other terrorist views. That when they die anyway they will be met with an X amount of Virgins. If killing is a sin, then the ones who kills the killer for killing has also sinned? For this reason is how these terrorist do these things in the first place. They believe that America is harming their religion and by killing people they will be rewarded for killing instead of punished.

No, it's only if it's the killing if innocents and/or it's unjustified. I mean, there's a difference between bringing someone to justice and terrorism. If they kill, they should die. In my opinion, you should only kill someone if they've killed someone else unjustly. The death penalty and murder are two different things. Again, this is just my opinion.

From their point of view they might think it is justified. That is why i am against it. Promoting that in certain circumstances that it is ok. If it is completely outlawed as a punishment then there can't be, from peoples view a justified way to kill anyone without consent (Like Euthanasia as an example.)

I am not saying that it will stop murders, as most are done from revenge or gain.

As for terrorism itself (not gong on to much about this or we will go off topic), we should not be involved with anything concerning the middle eastern countries. Let them deal with their own stuff and just look out for your countries people not those that hate you.

Not to mention that the U.S was warned about these 2 that they were to be under watch. That is another issue though.

By the way, one of us needs to make a thread on being involved with Middle Eastern countries, because I disagree with your opinion. Anyway, like I said, in my opinion, murder is never okay unless the victim is breaking into your home, threatening your life, or has killed someone and they are guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Under these circumstances when you are under threat. The Flight or Fight response kicks in. The intention of defending yourself is on your mind, not the killing of the person attacking you. If you do kill them in defense then your of-course not to blame since the attacker denied your right of life.
