Default Jury is back in the Colorado theater shooting

Colorado jury has found Holmes guilty of murder. The defense claim of "not guilty by reason of insanity" was rejected.

Trial now moves to penalty phase. Holmes can be sentenced to life without parole or death.

Death.

That is one Holmes we can do without.

In a case like this when there is absolutely no doubt that he did it, the sentence should be death. There is no need for society to feed and clothe this monster for the next 60 years.

That thoughtful beard he has grown, is it Islam? Or just feigning insanity? Forgive the paranoia at the moment.

My own theory, One appeal, make sure everything was done right, no doubts. It shouldn't take more than 3 months. Then you hang him on the city square at noon with every junior and senior high school student in the city in attendance. While the actual crime is still fresh in the minds of the public.

Now you have a deterrent, 20 years on death row is about 15 years longer than the average gang-bangers life expectancy is on the street. Our current death penalty is not a deterrent, some changes need to be made.

No question in my mind that he deserves the death penalty. I wish we could get a little common sense about the administration of it. We are able to humanely dispatch cattle and put pets to sleep. We routinely anesthetize people for major surgeries and adverse outcomes are very rare. Yet we struggle to accomplish the same with felons sentenced to death. Why? I believe it's because we are trying too hard to meet everyone's idea of safety, humane treatment, etc. Just get the job done quickly and cleanly. There are hundreds of ways to accomplish this.

Here is my suggestion: an air tight room and replace the air with nitrogen (they just fall asleep and don't wake up). By the way, the air we breathe is already 79% nitrogen. It's the 21% oxygen that allows us to survive. Below 10% oxygen becomes immediately dangerous to life and health. Dropping to zero oxygen cause a rapid loss of consciousness. Brain death by lack of oxygen follows quickly and most of that time the subject is unconscious. This requires no medical skills, no special drugs (like phenobarbitol) that could become unavailable, no physical restraint of the subject, no risk of allergic reaction or difficulties induced by subjects choice to become dehydrated (like injections). Simply put the subject in a room alone, draw air out of the room and fill the air intake ducting with nitrogen from a simple nitrogen bottle. Wait an hour or two (though 10 minutes is probably long enough). Draw the nitrogen out of the room and fill the air intake ducting with air. Run enough air through the room to provide 10 complete changes of the volume of the room. This ensures the room becomes full of air again making it safe to reenter. There are no residual poisons in the room to put corrections officers at risk on re-entry.

This room does not even need to be a special place. It could be their cell on death row if the room has a solid door and windows instead of open bars. To avoid the psychological trauma of knowing they are being taken to the place of their death, simply wait until the subject is asleep and perform the procedure above using air ducting in and out of their cell. They simply don't wake up.

That all makes sense balota, that's why our modern day government won't do it. It must be complicated and expensive, like everything is these days.
