  1. Don't believe the death penalty will help vanquish the races problem. Alive, he may indeed be able to help others.
    Both he and Parkland shooter were brutalized emotionally throughout much of their Ives.

  2. Americans must vote for leaders with integrity who are willing to protect our constitutions, democracy, and the rule of law. The integrity, core value, and principle of the leaders and the United States should be absolutely more important than any political party and policy. Decent US citizens should unite our country and minimize violence and chaos in our country. Our foreign adversaries would want to see our country leaders initiate violence and divide our country. Our rule of law should hold whoever breaks the law accountable. Without accountability, human rights will be denied, crime will flourish, and impunity for past conflict-related crimes will persist, undermining legitimacy and prospects for reconciliation. Do we want the next generation to live a life without any integrity and kindness? Do we want our society to allow crimes and violence? Do we want our country ruled by a dictator with no integrity who used the presidency for his self-benefits and who pleaded the "fifth" more than 400 times on 8/10/2022 during his deposition for tax fraud? Trump's actions, decision-making, behaviors, and words have demonstrated that he is unethical and has no integrity for decades. He puts the life of the US spies in danger when he declassified the documents without following the proper procedures and if the documents are in the hand of our foreign adversaries. 1. Investigation of Trump violating the Presidential Records Act. 2. Investigation of Trump regarding his involvement in the US Capitol riot. 3. Investigation of Trump about his tax and bank frauds. Trump pleaded the "Fifth" more than 400 times. 4. Investigation of Trump about Election interference. 5. Investigation of Trump's Sexual misconduct. 6. Various lawsuits by police officers regarding Trump incited the 6 January attack in which they suffered injuries. 7. Lawsuits by Trump's niece, Mary Trump, and Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. 8. His past lawsuits before and during his presidency.
    How can a decent person support and defend Trump who is unethical and has no integrity with a criminal mind before, during, and after his presidency?

  3. It doesn't matter what influences he seen on the internet. He still knew these people were innocent and killing innocent people was not only legally wrong. But morally wrong as well. He's not retarded, he has the same understanding all of us do. Why he regrets, is throwing his life away over something stupid. Because be said previously he did not regret doing what he done. He felt like he was doing what was justified. So no I don't have sympathy for him. He deserves whatever he gets. I do believe he deserves the death penalty. You take someone's right to live away. You deserve to lose your right to live.

  4. Just put the sick excuse for a human to rest, permanently. Make it painful beyond all comprehension down to the very last second and call it a day. It would serve as a warning for future cases of such caliber that mercy doesn’t exist for the wicked….

  5. The media always does this whenever black people are targeted.
    During the riots sparked by the cops getting off for beating Rodney King, it wasn't the police chief asking for forgiveness, and peace. Rodney King was forced to read the statement they had prepared for him.
    Before the echo of the gunshots we're muted, when Dylan Roof murdered nine people, reporters were demanding to know whether those grieving their losses forgave him.
    I don't recall any network doing a story on the families of those killed during the Boston bombing if the death penalty is too harsh of a punishment.
    This is propaganda. It's disgusting.
    Edit: there was one family asking for the death penalty to be removed for the Boston bomber, but they were not interviewed.

  6. If you kill him, then you show all the other extremists that their punishment won't be that bad. Especially since some of these extremists are more than happy to die for their disgusting beliefs.

  7. The creature isn't human. A complete waste of sympathy. And this isn't about hate. It's about making the next monster think twice before committing such a heinous crime.

  8. And God spake all these words, saying,

    2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

    3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

    5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

    6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

    7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

    8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

    9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

    10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

    11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

    13 Thou shalt not kill.

    14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

    15 Thou shalt not steal.

    16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

    17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

    18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

  9. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

  10. “On every occasion [of Constitutional interpretation] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying [to force] what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, [instead let us] conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823

  11. “Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”
    -Patrick Henry, Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution

  12. “What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty …. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.”
    – Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, I Annals of Congress 750, August 17, 1789

  13. “[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against it, if it should exist.”
    – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28, January 10, 1788

  14. The constitutional right to bear arms in public for self defense is not “a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.” McDonald, 561 U. S., at 780 (plurality opinion). We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government offic-ers some special need. That is not how the First Amendment works when it comes to unpopular speech or the free exercise of religion. It is not how the Sixth Amendment works when it comes to a defendant’s right to confront the witnesses against him. And it is not how the Second Amendment works when it comes to public carry for self defense. New York’s proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment in that it prevents law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. We therefore reverse the judgment of the Court of Appeals and remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

    It is so ordered.
    Supreme Court of The United States of America, 2022

  15. “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state. In a single state, if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.”
    – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28
