John Allen Muhammad execution set for Nov. 10, should there be a Stay?
 
John Allen Muhammad execution set for Nov. 10 | Richmond Times-Dispatch


Quote:

A Nov. 10 execution date has been set for John Allen Muhammad, one of two snipers whose murder rampage left 10 dead and a half dozen wounded in four states and the District of Columbia.
He was sentenced to death in Virginia in 2004 for the Oct. 9, 2002, capital murder of Dean Meyers in Prince William County.
One of Muhammad’s lawyers and the Virginia attorney general’s office said the execution date was set this morning in Prince William County Circuit Court.
Muhammad’s accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, is serving life in prison.

Why is he particularly relevant? Does the magnitude of crime affect whether the death penalty should be applied?

Most in the USA would answer yes to your question.

For those who believe in the death penalty, I'd say Diamond is correct that most US residents would associate punishment with the severity of the charges.

I'm not sure if he deserves the death penalty. I'd like to see him serve a life sentence where he could live with the agony of his guilt. That is, if he has any.

Ya, I dont believe in the death penalty, but if you do, this one pretty much sums up what its to be used for

mikal 11-09-2009 10:27 PM

HyperU2 11-09-2009 10:30 PM

Only if it means he'll Stay dead.

what if it were only 7? or 3?

please, let us know what the threshold of horror is that makes a crime punishable by death.

HyperU2 11-09-2009 10:47 PM

1 death.

I somehow doubt you are this black and white...

What if the murder was "justifiable" in your mind?

HyperU2 11-09-2009 10:59 PM

Obviously I don't want the death penalty for justifiable homicide, manslaughter or accidents.

BVS 11-09-2009 11:09 PM

No, I'm talking about pre-meditated murder, but someone you thought deserved it.

A man who kills his daughter's rapist.

Acquitted.
