  3. Do you think the Parkland H.S. school shooter should get the death penalty?

To anyone who says he shouldn't because all deserve to live or whatever nonsense reason, didn't those kids deserve to live ? Didn't their families and loved ones deserve to watch them grow up and live ?
They did deserve to live. But the death penalty doesn't bring them back. What they deserved is irrelevant because the death penalty can't bring about that sort of justice

It's better than wasting resources keeping them alive.

How does keeping this person alive make the world a better place?

If the death penalty brought back the victim? Sure. But it doesn't, so 'didn't the victim deserve to live?' won't work for me.

'It's cheaper for the taxpayers just to kill them' is a morally bankrupt argument. It's cheaper for the taxpayers to execute every criminal in the spot, Duterte style. In fact, it's cheaper for the taxpayers to execute a lot of people. It's a bulls*** justification.

No. I oppose the death penalty.
Irregardless, for all intensive purposes, I could care less.

You're assuming the resources going towards these criminals would actually be used effectively if they were dead instead.

There's plenty of wastage you can address that wouldn't involve killing people.

What good does it do to keep serial killers alive?

Why is it offensive to have ill will towards bad people when those thoughts do not actually do anything without action?

How come it is not offensive for Osama Bin Laden and other terrorists to be executed? Did people not generally celebrate Laden’s death? Did anyone find it offensive? How come in instances like this it is okay but the death penalty is not? People have problems with death penalty but not in special circumstances of executions and war?

But you think they should have Netflix and cable where they can watch serial killer documentaries and violent movies - what's the damn difference?
Any streaming service that they get would have some kind of lock on violent material.

Your question has been answered repeatedly. Yes, there are things that are too expensive or extravagant for prisoners. No, playing video games are not on that list, and in fact video games are likely to be very cost efficient forms of entertainment in the long run.
What is too expensive or extravagant for prisoners to have? You haven't answered that. All you've done is pointed out places prisoners can't go to because they are locked up.

Would you accept the death penalty if it was exclusive to people who commit mass shootings like this ?
No. Ignoring the potential for abuse, it's extremely costly and doesn't actually accomplish anything beyond a sense of vengeance.
