    Comwhite;
    I understand entirely what you mean. But despite the terrible thing he did, we sink to his level to deny death in a dignified manner as he did to those 170 people. Let's show some respect to the families and survivors by respecting their right to see it in private.

    Let's face it, watching the execution on TV is just plain ghoulish. Really, YUCK!!!

    Q:If you were an extremist group plotting an act of terrorism, would you want it televised?
    A:Yes!There's no such thing as bad PR!

    By broadcasting the execution, we give McVeigh what he wanted in the first place.

    If I thought Cable TV would go for it I say make it a Pay-Per-View Event --- World-Wide! This A**hole knew what he was doing - I don't care what his defense says -- HE'S GUILTY AND DESERVES TO DIE !! Yeah that may sound harsh but all the Men, Women and Children this man killed never got a chance to appeal thier lives so why should McVeigh ? Tele-vise his execution PRIME TIME !! On all the Net-Works --- Hell, we tele-vise presidential addresses and sporting events why not a justified execution

    Hey Nomad, why is blowing him sky high out of the question? I say they put him in a concrete and steel room with one bomb for each victim in it. Of course, each bomb would have a diferent time on it so the bas***d would never know which one would get him!

    In the end he will be brought before the ULTIMATE JUDGE for judgement. I feel that is sufficient punishment. Whether it is broadcast or not is probably not going to affect that JUDGEMENT at all.

    "He does still have human rights, even if He doesen't deserve them."

    Sorry Althea, I disagree with you wholeheartedly. He relinquished any and all rights he had when he willfully, wantonly, and without humane conviction took the lives of 170 humans. You're right, technically he's a human, morally he's an evil animal that deserves any/all punishment that can be meted out to him.

    He doesn't deserve any special treatment, such as his execution being televised, nor should his desires be considered. Yes, he should suffer, he won't, but he should the way he made those little babies suffer. I'm sorry, I have no human compassion for anyone that would do something like this animal has done.

    Yes, millions would be made, BUT THAT KIND OF THING ON TV IS SICK!!!!!! It makes me want to vomit!!!! Go watch that episode of The Simpsons!!!!! Do you really want a bunch of drunken maniacs treating it like a football game? While the survivors and families of the victims sit at home crying and wondering how anyone could wathch it as if it were a sporting event? Think about the definition of a word called charity--giving to others without expecting anything in return (such as watching a man put to death).

    At risk of playing the Devil's advocate, He is still technicaly a human being and as much as I hate to admit it He does still have human rights, even if He doesen't deserve them.

    WOW!! Looper stole my idea!! I thought the same thing!!! Imagine the millions that probably would be made if they put it on pay-per-view??? I took it one step farther- Auction off the chance to be the one that pushes the plunger on the needles!!! Imagine some millionaire bidding a few hundred thousand to do that!! Give it all to the families!!!

    I believe I read yesterday that a judge had denied his execution to the internet. He isn't a martyr, much as he would like to consider himself one, and I don't think we should treat him like one. His death should be given no more publicity than any other sick Joe Blow.

    However, with that being said, I think my father, before he died, had the right punishment for this animal. He believed that McVeigh (God, I even hate the sound of the name)should be put in an 8 X 10 cell, build a block wall around it, unmortared. Allow a stream of water to slowly pour down on this "building", trickling in on him. Eventually enough water would cause the building to collapse all around him, but no one knows when, including him. Oh, he also believed that there should be a ticking clock with him, so that he was reminded at all times, his days were numbered.

    I think he would probably rather have a fireing squad or or hanging; it would be all the more dramatic and make him even more of a martyr. Lethal injection is probably the calmest and most torturous for him. However, that ebola virus thing wouldn't be too bad either. After all, it is an injection and it is certainly lethal. I guess putting him in a building and blowing it sky high is out of the question.

    From what I have seen on the news, the families of the victims want absolutely nothing to do with any prophit made from his book or execution videos or anything. They don't want anything to do with him.

    How about we put it on pay-per-view, and the proceeds go to a trust fund for the victim's families?

    I don't think the execution should be publically broadcast. He should not be given anymore publicity for his horrendous act.
    Unfortunately, there will be more outrages in our society and we as firefighters, rescuers and EMS must be prepared to deal with the results of some sick mind's actions.

    McVeigh deserves to die but we must guard against falling to his level.

    I'm for tying him, naked, to a light pole in Oklahoma City and leaving him for those people to do with as they wish. Some of them surely know the old Indian ways.

    He's susposed to die by lethal injection right? Did anybody say that it had to be quick?

    My vote says shoot him up with a lil bit of HIV blood or maybe Ebola, hey how about Hep C?

    This guy has single handedly justified the "slow death penalty".

    I THINK DEATH BY INJECTION IS TO GOOD FOR THIS GUY. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO A FIREING SQUAD, OR THE OTHER BAD STUFF OUR ANCESTORS DID (I'M HISPANIC SO I THINK MINE HAD IT WORSE, BUT I'M NO HISTORY MAJOR)
    I HATE THE GUY, BUT HE IS NO COWARD, IF HE WERE HE WOULD KEEP THE JUDICIAL BULLSH*T WITH APPEALS.I AM NOT FOR WHAT HE IS ALL ABOUT BUT I DO WISH THE PUNISHMENT SHOULD FIT THE CRIME!
