Yeah well if I wanted to get anger out, I would play some games or punch my pillows. What the hell is wrong with society these days...

I don't see the point in it.

Look at Scott Peterson, he's on death row and has his own computer with internet access, a lot of people out there don't even have computers.

I think this shooting was horrific. I was completely taken by shock when I heard about it. I remember hearing about columbine and thought that was awful, I never thought there could ever be a worse shooting than that. I feel sorry for all the families and relatives of the people who were killed. If the killer wanted to kill himself, he should have done it without taking 33 other people with him, that's a selfish act in my opinion

What if you were on death row and convicted for a capital crime when you were really innocent? Would you like to take your time so that maybe someone finds out the truth?

Remember, it's better for the guilty man to go free than it is for the innocent man to be punished (especially by execution). It's necessary to make sure.

Yeah, heard about it this morning... Pretty sad really. What drives someone to do such a thing?

That's why theres two points to this whole argument. Some say that it's just a waste of taxpayer's money and some say that there could be a possibility that they are innocent. Just depends on your personal beliefs.

It's actually 33 people died including the gunman totaling nearing 50 people that fell victim. That makes this the worse gun shooting in US history.

I knew it would happen. Jack Thompson should be shot. It would actually do the world some good for once.

Sad thing is there was one shooting before the other, yet it didnt ring any alarm bells to evacuate anyone, very sad story.
