Whats your reasoning
Report as
I do not believe any criminal should undergo the death penalty. No matter how bad the crime. I believe you go straight to hell if you do something that bad of a crime. However, throughout the time the criminal endures in jail, there is a possibility that the criminal has changed his or her ways. Thus, saving them from the afterlife of punishment. Also I believe God determines when your life on this earth ends. No being has a right to kill another. To me, the death penalty is just another crime. It's murder being committed. All criminals should pay their time in jail.

I don't know if you are religious or what. But that's my reasoning against the death penalty. It is cruel

I don't think anyone should be sentenced to death. Anyway, we all die, so how's that a punishment?

Just to get a better understanding, you don't think she should be sentenced to death because its not really a punishment?
Report as
It's not. It's death ( you're gone no consequences to deal with) a very easy way out.

There isn't a way out of hell

no, I believe her story that she was being beaten and abused, people snap sometimes in situations like that and you can't really blame them for their actions after being tortured

1 stab would have probably worked.
Report as
She's already been proven guilty anyway. How someone might feel about her disposition is irrelevant. She's guilty. It doesn't matter who believes her story at this point.
Report as
Yeah you can it doesnt take over 20 stab wounds a slit throat and a gunshot to solve that problem and her story was always changing
Report as
Seems a bit of overkill may have occurred

It doesn't take multiple stabbings, a slit throat and gun shots. She should be executed.
Report as
You have to get up and close to stab someone that many times. I've been on crime scenes that involved stabbings (never 27 stab wounds), she was drenched in his blood, the walls were soaked with his blood as was the ceiling from the blood splatter. In addition to stabbing him 27 times and cutting his throat from ear to ear, she shot him in the head. If there was ever a case that cried out for the death sentence, it was this one. She claims that she was abused, there's not a shred of evidence to back that up, in addition, she's a known liar. There's a mountain of evidence that she killed him, including her confession, she confessed after lying about it.
Report as
I guess it comes down to if you think she was tortured by this guy or not. If she was though it doesn't really matter how many times she stabbed him. You snap when being tortured, you see how many times you stab someone after being tortured.
Report as
Torture doesn't make you snap MENTAL illness does. Thousands of people return from war which is about as worse as torture gets and they DON'T slit people's throat shoot them and stab them 27 times
Report as
I did a tour in afganistan and Iraq, I was diagnosed with PTSD, hurting someone the way that this girl did her boyfriend has NEVER crossed my mind, I think it's repugnant. The death penalty is the law of the land in Arizona, if anyone deserves it, she does. Not only did she kill him, she mutilated him. She's shown no remorse, she's a narcissist and a sociopath.
Report as
She has failed to produce any evidence that she was abused, let alone tortured, it appears from the evidence that he was the one who was tortured.

No. Sentencing someone to death is a waste of tax payer money with the number of appeals. Give her a life sentence and everyone should move on. There has been enough attention on her stupid case.

Well, she is definitely mentally ill. We're not supposed to, me, life in solitary would hurt her worse. No tee shirts no preaching to other inmates, no limelight.

She'll never get life in solitary confinement, that would legally be cruel and unusual punishment. If she's given life, she's already told the jury what she would do, promote recycling and teach Spanish classes..she'll have even more of a celebrity status.
Report as
I know, I'm for death, but she is a text book crazy. Either way, she live a long time before she dies

She is deserving but it's not worth the time or money to execute her. There would be years of appeals and more focus on HER. Let her sit in prison and fade into obscurity. Maybe someday she will grow a conscience and realize what she took from his family. We can only hope...

Not sure. Death is a severe penalty and should be reserved for especially heinous crimes. Women are rarely given the death penalty, and when they are, it's because the deed is especially abhorrent and the perp has no mitigating factors.
Consider the facts of the case:
1. Alexander's injuries consisted of multiple stab wounds, a slit throat, and a shot to the head; the medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.
2. The defendant lied to investigators and in court. Repeatedly.
3. Defendant admitted killing the victim.
4. Defendants "justification" of being allegedly abused had not one shred of evidence, and the jury found it incredible.
5. Defendant showed no remorse and continued to justify the actions she took.
6. The premeditated conditions were well satisfied and the jury found her eligible for the death penalty.
7. Objectively, if the perp were a man, the facts of the crime would deserve a death penalty in most states. But the death penalty is a difficult penalty to apply to women, and difficult to apply to anyone young and attractive. I believe it's additionally hard to apply because of prejudice against the penalty. I believe justice should be blind-- and sometimes that means we don't look at the externals of the perp.

I'm not going to try to judge something like that unless I've actually been a member of her jury, which I'm not. I haven't ever been in the position to have to decide whether somebody lives or dies, so I don't really know what I would do. I'd imagine, however, that sentencing somebody to death and telling her that she's going to die would be much more difficult than sitting at a computer screen and saying that she should die, knowing that the words you type aren't going to influence the decision either way.

My question wasn't asking anyone to pass judgement, as you pointed out, it can't be done from a computer screen. I was asking what you believe her fate should be.
Report as
I get that, I was just trying to say that I can't even form an opinion about something like that because it would still be passing judgement. It wouldn't be a judgement that affects her punishment, but it would still be judgement. It would affect the way I see myself and others forever, whether I said that a person should die, which means that I'm okay with taking somebody's like while they aren't currently putting others in danger, or that she should live, in which case I'm saying that somebody who brutally murdered a guy should be left living and potentially be able to influence others. I can't know what I think until I'm put into some sort of position where I actually have to make a decision about it, and I don't know how anybody else can. I guess everybody has different ways of thinking, though. I can sort of see how others would be able to form an opinion about it, but I'm just going to stay neutral.

I can appreciate that, thank you for your answer.

Yep. Let her rot in jail for about a year, then stick her with the needle. I'd rather have my tax dollars spent on that, than have to pay for her crummy prison food for her ENTIRE LIFE.
