Yes. Whether he's "all there" or not, the fact remains that he planned and carried out the burning of a family's home, knowing they were inside that home, and resulting in the death of 6 innocent people. His motive was revenge.

Such a person cannot exist in civilized society. I see no reason to feed, shelter, clothe, and tend to this person for another 60 or 70 years. That would be an unnecessary burden on the taxpayers. All prisoners on Death Row should be executed - they should get ONE appeal, and if the death sentence is upheld, that's all she wrote.

Stupid is as stupid does. I do not believe he intended to kill anyone, only to scare them with a porch fire. But, his stupidity over revenge of a stolen cell phone has put him in serious murder charges which could leave him facing his final calling.

I don't believe in the death penalty,but I also believe a person like this cannot ever be released into society again.I believe spending the rest of your life in a maximum federal penitentiary may be a worse punishment.And I also don't agree with you,NoBS,on your belief that all prisoners on death row should be executed.I hope you are not serious considering the number of people who,sometimes decades after the crime are proven to be innocent with new evidence coming forth.How would you like to have one of your own relatives on death row for a crime they didn't commit and,after they are executed are proven to be innocent?I somehow don't think you would have those same terrible views

No; there is more to this, than what is being told.

pj - there's more to this story than we are being told, is that what you are suggesting? We know enough - nothing else can change the facts.

I agree with NoBS. This person should get the death sentence as that is exactly what he gave to that defenseless family.

Teach your children while they are young! Life is a gift not to be thrown away in a fit of anger.

I believe the punishment should fit the crime. But I don't think our liberal world would accept what my sentence would be for this killer.

As for people on death row being proven innocent after being incarcerated for long periods of time - I'm not sure where to find the numbers on this, but odds are there are thousands upon thousands of guilty prisoners on death row to the one or two who are truly innocent.

God bless us all.
