    Problem with nutters over there is they have easy access to firearms

    Aren't terrorists nuttters?
    I hope it's an American, which will then put a halt to the OP turning it into his usual merry-go-round.

    Yep

    numerous sources on twitter have the killer as jared loughner and is apparently a "nutter" (although I doubt it's the type of nutter boothy was after).

    Very easy for us to pigeon hole people as 'nutters' but then the reason they do these things never gets addressed

    People have gripes, just wondering what his/hers was.

    Well, the killer is alive so we may get some idea.

    Funny really, capital murder (that warrants the death penalty) is quite strict.

    I think killing more than 4 people warrants it (I'll have to get my research out).

    But that is really my point.

    Kill a normal person in any 'death state' and you get life. Kill a police man or pinch a little cash, and you get capital.

    Interesting system.

    Is it not Federal murder because it was a Federal Judge killed? That means that the Federal Government can enforce the death penalty, I believe.

    according to a former bandmate he was, a pot head, left wing, quite liberal and oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy.

    Thanks for clarifying. It basically means he gets tried by the Feds first, before local law enforcement gets their hands on him. Basically he's screwed!

    Yeah I saw that. Apparently because it travelled right through, the bullet didn't fragment. SO lucky I guess!

    As it's Federal murder though, the state it happens in doesn't have a bearing until after the trial. The Oklahoma bombing of the FBI in the 90s with Timothy McVeigh was the same I think. IF for some reason he didn't get sentenced to death for killing the judge, then the state can sentence him to death for the other murders if they chose. Though I'm getting a lot of this from memory so not 100%

    You can choose death by firing squad in a couple of states. Some guy did it a couple of months ago. They load all but one gun with blanks, so those doing the shooting don't know who fired the lethal shot.

    Will have to look at my research (upstairs) but a few of the 36 states that still allow capital, have an option for being shot. I think it's only a couple.
