Only problem I have with this is that he'll be on death row for 20 or 30 years
Steven Hayes, convicted of a brutal 2007 home invasion in which a Connecticut mother and her two daughters were killed, was sentenced Thursday to die for the crime.
In a strong and clear voice, the judge sentences Hayes to death on each of the six capital felonies.
"This is a terrible sentence. But in truth it is a sentence you wrote for yourself in flames on July 23, 2007 . . . your fate is now in the hands of others. May God have mercy on your soul."
A jury found Hayes guilty of killing Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 48, and her daughters - 7-year-old Hayley Petit and 11-year-old Michaela Petit - in their Cheshire, Connecticut, home in 2007.
It recommended that Hayes, 47, should die for his role in the deaths.
"The impact of these crimes against our family is like the impact of a bomb going off in your house . . ." William Petit, who survived the crime said. "I awoke to a confused terror . . . I'll always remember my father's face when I asked about the girls, and he just shook his head fro side to side and sobbed . . . Our home was no more . . ."
Hayes' lawyer, Thomas Ullman, said he was not surprised by the jury's decision - and that Hayes was actually pleased with the outcome.
"He wants to die," said Ullman last month. "He has categorized this process as suicide by state. He was unable to kill himself in prison and saw this as a way for the state to kill him."
Prosecutors alleged Hayes and co-defendant Joshua Komisarjevsky invaded the home of Dr. William Petit on July 23, 2007, beat and tied up Petit, raped and strangled Hawke-Petit, molested one of their daughters and set the house on fire before attempting to flee.
Komisarjevsky will be tried separately later.
We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

Please ship him to me! I have been looking for some sort of moving object i can target practice on.This pathetic excuse for a human being would work well for .500 magnum target shooting.
I agree somewhat that death isn't a punishment for this guy, however, it's much better than having tax payer dollars keeping him in prison for the rest of his life. That goes for everyone on death row, let's clean them all out. It would help with some of the over crowding in our country's prisons as well.
We could test several different varieties of those "controversial" hollow points on some "human" flesh. Think of the performance and ballistics test we could get done.

A lifetime of solitary confinement can be pretty punishing too...
Release him in the Towne Square at midnight.
For me, the issue is not what is worst for him. (It's not about him any longer.)
The issue is what's best for us, the rest of society. If a prompt extermination of this vermin's life would act as a deterrent, a cause for hesitation in another perpetrator of such heinous acts then use him up fast!
If ending this rabid life would even incrementally reduce the tax burden of already overburdened law abiding citizens, then snuff him.
If the suffering and anguish of the husband & father of these murdered victims is relieved in the slightest by knowing the doer of those evil deeds no longer lives-while his beloved do not-then afford him that relief . . .he deserves it!
How much tolerance is enough?? I believe it is our habitual inaction of insanely tolerating the intolerable that demonstrates to criminals they are safe to do as they please without serious consequence.
