Seems right, some of the jurors were out on social media before the trial condemning him.

 

I would say just lock him away for life with no possibility of parole to put an end to this, works out cheaper than the death penalty as well.

How does housing and feeding him for possibly another 60 years work out cheaper than exhausting all his appeals over maybe 15 years and then putting him down?

If he doesn't get death then nobody should get that penalty.

It's been studied before and the courts and appeals actually cost more than life in prison.

I don't know what's worse, death penalty or whole life sentence in a supermax.

Maybe it will stand. But it will mean 20 years or so of lawsuits, costing money like crazy, and keeping this in the victims' eyes for those 20 years 

 

Just lock him up for life and be done with it 

to me personally, to be isolated in the supermax, I'd rather be dead. Retribution is a real aspect to US justice, I wish our Canadian law had a little more of it, especially in a case as heinous as this..

Really easy to find, e.g. https://www.thebalance.com/comparing-the-costs-of-death-penalty-vs-life-in-prison-4689874

Depends on the individual, but one would think death penalty preferable, though some clearly wish to live.

There really is No Death Penalty in the USA.  Most who have been on death row die of natural causes before all of their appeals are heard.  They say it is not a deterrent.  How do you know.  Something that will not occur for decades if ever is hardly the deterrent of something you know will happen quickly.  One way or another, put him in the general population and the inmates will take care of what the government refuses to do.

Ok,  but you have the right to appeal any sentence, if he doesn’t get the death penalty and appeals his prison sentence won’t the cost be the same?

So what, the west is spending zillions to take out Muslim terrorist where ever they show up around the world. A court case over a caught mass murderer is peanuts...

Despair? He deserves to die. But in a civilized world do we as humans have the right to sentence other humans to death. The despair should be that the USA is that uncivilized it thinks nothing of killing other humans. The rest of the western world have moved on as civilized nations. 
Lock him away for life. And life means life.  

LOL. We have no problem sending young men to kill and be killed in war, we have no problem allowing abortion, etc

I don't support the death penalty as too many innocents died due to wrong convictions, but I'd put them in solitary till they died in prison. Punishes the guilty and allows the innocent to be released if the system works.
