I strongly believe that he deserves the needle. While many people would argue that the death penalty is inhumane and absolutely horrible, and etc. These people need to realize that he set off a bomb inside a marathon, killing a ton of people. Giving the death penalty to people like this sets the standard for the U.S. And MURICA! Also, if we don't give him the death penalty,it sets the standard for other criminals. While people would say that no one would commit crimes because they could get arrested; this doesn't do anything for criminals, they don't care if they get arrested or not. The entire reason people commit crimes is because it is again'st the law. The only thing that might stop mass bombing and murder is the fear of the death penalty. And, as someone also mentioned earlier, we are spending tax money to give the people in jail, food, living space, and even education. Did you guys know that while high school students can drop out at sixteen, inmates are required to learn and prisons are often required to offer a GED to all inmates. In fact, if you are even more interested in this topic, check out this video by BuzzFeed, youtube.com/watch?v=lOT3BvhjXcA It is really informative. But, please be sure to express your own opinion and please respond with it. Peace out!
