should the boston terrorist be hung?

should the boston terrorist be hung? 


http://news.radio.com/2013/04/22/ted-nugent-calls- for-public-hanging-of-dzhokhar-tsarnaev/

I think he should be hung.   The government should extract whatever information they can, then hang him him either as an enemy combatant of after a quick trial.

Sure, public hangings to emulate Iran. What a capital idea!

Obviously 10 years of legal posturing while paying millions of dollars in legal fees to hold a trial, followed by life imprisonment, make an attractive option.

You're right. The Iranian way is much better.

Re: should the boston terrorist be hung? 


I am against capital punishment, so that answers that question.

I am for seeing what this guy's problem is and trying to correct it and make him a productive citizen.

I know that viewpoint is not of the majority, and I accept that. I just ask that my view not be slandered and talked down to.

Gotta love Nuge!

Ya know I love this idea.  I always liked the electric chair we had in florida named ole sparky.  Got its nickname because it wasnt wired great and sometimes instead of killing the guy, it'd end up just setting him on fire.    In fact, I dont know why we dont bring back some of the more memorable execution methods.  Wouldnt you think twice about robbing that convenience store if you knew you would be drawn and quartered if you got caught?  Maybe we should start stoning people again?  Heck lets feed them to the lions!  I think the Romans had it right.  Which brings me to one of my better ideas....

A lot of prisons are not only strapped for cash but strapped for space.  We often have to let criminals walk because there isnt enough room.  And as we read recently in California, the prison conditions are getting inhumane because so much of the revenue is headed to the prison guard union pensions.  So I say offer a deal to any prisoner on a 20 year to life sentence.  Fight to the death for your freedom.   Put them all in one huge room and sprinkle around weapons for them to grab.  But then put cameras all over the place as though its Running Man.  Televise it but put it on pay per view.  The most recent Pacquiao-Marquez fight had over 1 million people order it.  Charge $50 a head and the prison could generate over $50 million!  For the winner, he is absolved of all crimes.  But don’t just let him go free.  I don’t want him walking around America.  Take him down to Mexico or El Salvador and drop him off.  Maybe it wouldn’t be fair to those countries because now they would have a serious criminal on the loose who could break a lot of laws… but that of course assumes those countries actually have laws.   But before you get your panties in a wad, remember its completely voluntary.  No prisoner would be forced to do it.

Maybe instead of increased use of capital punishment to reduce the inmate load, we should revisit our ridiculous, ineffective drug laws & enforcement? 

Just a thought. But, now that the prison system's being privatized, the financial incentive is to imprison more and more folks ... yay.

I agree with hanging,after gathering whatever intel we can from him. He committed crimes against the United States and should be treated as a war criminal.

I think they should hang him by his 'nads with fish hooks and piano wire and execute him on pay-per-view with the proceeds going to the victims.
 
After turning him over to the closest thing to a real life Jack Bauer we have to get that info you spoke of.  Let "Jack" hook him up to the light switch.

Still think I'm a bleeding-heart tree-hugger all the time?

What makes the Boston bombings "crimes against the United States" in a way that other mass killings, e.g., Tucson, Aurora, and Newtown, aren't?

This guy wasn't a us citizen, and it was more of a war act than the others mentioned, especially because of the links to Islamic terrorism.

Perhaps you should reread the 8th amendment.  I though you Righties loved the Constitution.  Or is what y'all are proposing not cruel and unusual punishment?

But I'm sure there will be some idiotic liberal law students or lawyers call ring to represent the guy, as if that somehow is a noble thing. Pathetic that others in the legal industry may consider that mob,e as well.

The surviving brother is a US citizen. He's the one that we're discussing hanging, unless you were advocating hanging a dead man.

The government assassinated the son of an Islamic terrorist in a drone assault and didn't seem to have a problem justifying it.

Is this supposed to be an explanation of why the Boston bombings should be considered "crimes against the United States"?

Which part of my post are you referring to?  I personally dont think hanging is cruel and unusual.  No more than the electric chair.  Punishment fits the crime.  Although obviously the definition of cruel and unusual is up for debate.  Didnt the supreme court rule not to long ago that child rape doesnt warrant a death sentence on those grounds?  To me it does.

Or were you referring to my HBO original pay per view Fight for Freedom event?  Which clearly isnt cruel and unusual since its voluntary.  Boy that would generate a big pay day though!

Thanks Gracc,I did just that and learned that it would be unconstitutional to draw and quarter,publicly dissect,disembowel,or burn alive. Hanging,whether public or not,isn't mentioned.
I do love our constitution!
