This particular instance seems just, IMO. Whether you think the punishment fits the crime or not, your suggestion is never going to work. Prison does not custom cater punishments to fit the criminals other than duration of confinement. He'd be just another guy in a large community of prisoners, he'd live his life out eating 3 square meals a day playing basketball, reading books, watching tv. He wouldn't be "forced" to do anything any of the other prisoners don't do, in fact if he played his cards right and was a non-violent prisoner he could go into a cozy protective custody cell, work a job and read books from the library and live a pretty comfortable, albeit controlled/confined, life. He'd be given anti-biotics when he got sick, get clean sheets every day on his bed. He could even publish books.

That's what you're paying for. You aren't paying for him to be tortured by watching re-runs of the accident.

As such, sentencing him to death shouldn't be a big deal. Who cares if he thinks it sets him free, jokes on him. All evidence points that when you die, you're dead. You don't go anywhere else, you just cease to exist. He's one less problem for the world to deal with once he's dead. And all of the comforts I mentioned above will still actually be given to him for the unknown number of years he'll still be alive fighting this sentence in appeals courts. The difference is, he'll know he's a dead man walking and he won't have a chance to die due to ailing health like most everyone else. He'll know that he's a dead man walking, others will to, it will weigh on him.

I don't want him given life in solitary. I don't want my tax money paying to support him and keep him alive.

Good decision jury.

I'm fine with him being executed. But honestly I think locking a dude up for 60 years with 23 hours a day of solitary confinement is a much worse punishment. That's like some kind of living hell and mental torture. But fck this guy, kill him

Even posting jokes like this on random websites will put you on America's watch list.

Hope you aren't planning any trips to the States, because you sound like an irrational hateful person. And with your online activity you'd definitely get questioned at an airport bound for the U.S.
