Waffle House murderer - what would you like to happen to him?

I would be interested to see your views.

Assuming he is found guilty and it is shown he has had long-term dangerous mental health issues, what would you like to happen to him?

1/ Prison for life because he deserves punishment and the people need to be protected.

2/ Death sentence because he deserves to die for killing others.

3/ Mental institution because that's where he should have been anyway and the system failed.

4/ An alternative to the options above.

1. I'd like for the justice system to make that decision.

That's what I'd like.

I'd like it if people not involved in his trial didn't speculate on how he should be punished. We have a system for that. Let's use it.

18. No, not really.

We hear that every time. Some want to kill him. Some want to lock him up and throw away the key. Some think he should be in a mental hospital.

Not a single one of those people will be involved in his trial. Not one.

It's simple. He'll be charged and tried. Then, when he's convicted, which he certainly will be, what happens will be decided.

What possible benefit is there to jabbering about what should happen to him?

Total waste of time.

Yours qualifies. We have a system of criminal justice. It will act. Beyond that, DUers have no valid input to offer as to how it should rule.

You start with "assuming he is found guilty" and include the option of "mental institution".

He may not be competent to stand trial in the first place.

If he is determined to be insane, that is different from "being found guilty".

6. depends on the mental eval. If "legally insane" lock in high security mental insitution until and

unless he becomes competent to serve trial and then a life sentence in prison upon conviction, but with regular mental health evaluation and appropriate segregation from others, if there is a doubt.

I do not, in any way think these extremist racist beliefs, whether part of his mental health issues or not, should be allowed to propagate to others. So no internet access and monitored access with others.

or jury decide.

Then, I want the families of those young people who were killed to sue the gun-loving dad, the NRA and other gun lobbying and marketing organizations, gun manufacturers, gun dealers, and anyone else involved in this mess.

Then, I want the next victims to do the same.

First time some white wing gun-lover says, "You can't sue when a product does what it's made for works," I want someone to slap them with a law suit and law enforcement to take their mythical "right" to own guns away for being too stupid to own guns.

And tried to break into the White House (while Trump was president).

It's a bit like the Parkland shooter. More than half of his victims were Jewish. Did that make the attack a hate crime?

Or just luck of the draw?

As for the shooter himself, the justice system will determine whether he's sane or criminally responsible for his actions.

What I WOULD like is for the media and politicians to have an honest discussion about why the word "terrorist" only seems to apply to muslims and never "christians".

to kill its subjects. it's not about what criminals deserve. no government should have this power. it's a recipe for corruption and tyranny.


if he's competent, prison for a very long time, likely life or the equivalent.

if he's incompetent, mental institution.

either way, he should not be released back into the public for a very long time, most likely not ever.

Because Young Travis needs to know that he's in Big Trouble Now, Mister. I hope the authorities pull their frowniest faces, and take his guns away from him. At least the guns that that horrible blah man didn't take away from him already (and why isn't that gun-grabber behind bars?). Then they should give the guns back to Young Travis' dad with a really stern warning that he shouldn't give them back to his boy for reals this time.

Hasn't this poor family suffered enough?

Expect to see any or all of these dumbass talking points made by the dumbasses at the NRA before the month is over.

31. Tried like any other criminal.

He doesn't sound like a model of sanity but his behavior suggests that he's not legally insane, meaning he didn't understand the nature of his acts or because of his mental illness was unable to conform his behavior to the requirements of the law. If he's found guilty, which is quite likely, he should be convicted to life imprisonment.

39. Medically speaking, he very likely has some psychological problems.

But that doesn't mean he's legally insane, meaning that he could avoid criminal liability. To be found not guilty by reason of insanity (or in some states, guilty but insane), you have to be downright psychotic in the sense of not understanding what you are doing, or that what you are doing is wrong. Insanity pleas are rarely successful, and I don't think that if this guy pleads insanity it will work - because by running away and trying to avoid capture, and then asking for a lawyer once he was caught, he clearly knew he had done something illegal and wrong. These things will be used to argue against an insanity defense, probably successfully.

A trial by peers who'll, if based upon the evidence presented to them, turn in a verdict of 'guilty', and then a death by a thousand needles!!!

Opps, just kidding about the needles. Prison w/ no parole. Depending upon the state, death by some means.

I don't buy the mental defect argument. Guy had enough composure to get the weapons, get the ammo, get the vehicle (and gas etc. so forth), drive there, and perform the dastardly deed.

My heart goes out to the victims and their friends and family.

50. Pretend he's black and treat him accordingly

but don't shoot him on sight though. I would just like him to get the same sentence and prison time that a black person who murdered 4 people would get and no less. No parole.

His mental illness should not trump his crimes. As if people of color don't have mental illness.

So option 1, prison for life for the shooter and his father in general population with no separate special protections or privileges for being white.

58. Good points. If he was African/America he would probably be dead already.

If he was a Muslim, he would be labeled a terrorist.

52. Life w/ Parole or Mental Institution

Mental institution only if he is legally insane, of course.

I'm not an advocate for government sanctioned murder (capital punishment) or walking death sentences (life w/out parole). These are sticking points for me with politicians too. I think being pro-death penalty should disqualify a person from elected office. I'll grudgingly extend some leniency for LWOP but only if it isn't mandatory.

63. I agree. Just for the fact that there are miscarriages of justice, rules out the

death penalty for me. Donald Trump called for the execution of the Central Park Five,
who were later proven to be innocent. If he had his way, they would be all be dead.
Politicians and the justice system need to lead by example. Is sentencing about retribution,
correction or protection? It cannot be only about the former. However, I think life without parole is
needed in many cases to protect the public. IMO, if somebody murders, it is too much risk for them
to be let loose, even if it is decades later.

if this was an episode resulting from a chemical imbalance? Or if the death penalty in this case meant that a similar case would be more likely to kill more people, including cops to avoid capture?

First degree murder, no chance they have the wrong guy, absolutely guilty.

It shouldn’t take twenty to thirty years to carry this out. He did it, pay the piper as soon as the gavel bangs.

The father should be charged as an accessory.

has a right to kill UNARMED human beings. A clown like this exercised his white privilege, used his weapon to kill unarmed AA. He was charged with a crime earlier in his depraved life, the White House deal, he had a weapon then. Taken away and given back. Now he has murdered innocent, unarmed people. The justice system is in place to deal with him, I will wait to see, if he lives, whether the justice system does its job. It won't inflict suffering if this clown is found guilty, but seeing as he will go to prison, he will find suffering, I hope.

89. won't teach anything

 

to the people who don't see the lesson people like cruz, roof and this clown are trying to teach. All his victims are black. Is there a lesson there for AA? I'm not saying I'm good because I want this POS dead, I'm saying I want him dead. period. And prison would have this POS looking over his shoulder, but the other aryan warriors will protect him as long as they can. He has lost his right to life. Why can't that be understood. Oh I forgot, generations of racist white people torturing, burning, lynching AA men, women and children are nothing. This latest last two generations, this time especially with racist cops murdering unarmed AA, male usually but not always male or adult is nothing and I as an individual should not be tired and disgusted with murder only because of skin color? Right? Just know that they will get their just reward when they die of old age, the always freed cops and dem black folks done got their 'pie in the sky', so who am I to want this POS dead now? Right? I am through dealing with the hypocrisy by being even handed. Fuck this POS, roof, cruz and any white racist cop that knows in his heart of hearts he/she is a murderer. May they all die terrified at their slow, painful demise. Won't change my mind. I've seen 'strange fruit' created by hate of skin color only. Go preach to someone else. Deaf ears here.....

96. Something to consider.

Before you get too attached to capital punishment in order to take out racists, you might want to look into the history of the death penalty. It is used, and has been used, to kill black defendants and those who kill white victims. It is almost never used against white perpetrators or people who kill black victims. And before you argue it can be fixed, you should take a good hard look at the decades of failed attempts at doing exactly that dating back to 1972. You are supporting a racist program administered by racists for the purpose of killing black people, ostensibly in the name of combating racists.

99. true

 

I'll clarify. A roof, cruz, zimmerman, this wafflehouse shooter? Kill them. You're NOT telling anything not known, by me, about how a racist culture/society has treated AA and to a lesser degree all nonwhites. I am just tired of white people taking lives into their hands and ending them, those lives taken by racist citizens and cop like we have experienced since camera phones have been in citizens hands. This shit has been going on for generations, it's going to have to stop. Or at 70 years old with a lifetime of knowing just how deeply hateful, vicious mean and racist this culture, white culture is, I can't see how it can be taken much longer with ALL AA knowing the white people around them may just kill them for no other reason than their skin color and with any lie have a good chance of walking free.

I am not supporting racist programs as you charge. If the white person is a roof, cruz, zimmerman, wilson, the wafflehouse POS, kill them. That is my clarification. Don't like it? Okay. Have a good one.

to do the same as your counsel to me. I know what this culture, society has used the death penalty for when it comes to INNOCENT AA. Just like I know what ropes have been used for, fire has been used for, knives have been used for in relation to white hate for brown skin. Yet your naive outlook tells me a lot about consequence when it comes to racist. The man who murdered my sister, I would have volunteered to pull the lever to electrocute him if he hadn't killed himself. That's not support, that's justice. You told me nothing that will EVER change my mind about a cruz, zimmerman, wilson, roof and wafflehouse shooter or any murderer proven beyond a doubt to have killed an innocent someone else. I'll pull the lever.

why the word "terrorist" only seems to apply to muslims and never "christians". It's a racist and xenophobic phenomenon that needs to see some sunlight in order to deal with it.

Our "law and order" president* seems no not even notice white mass shooters, nor black heroes. THAT deserves some national attention as well.

He may have mental illness, and if so, the system failed again. We need both more gun control and better mental health in this country. Legally I don't think a mental illness defense would work. Appears he knew what he was doing and what the consequences of his actions were and knows why he was arrested.
