Douchebag Dzhokhar and the death penalty

"This is nothing to celebrate. This is a matter of justice." So says Michael Ward, a firefighter who responded on the day of the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013, referring to the death penalty sentence that has been handed down on Dzhokhar "Flashbang" Tsarnaev by the jury.
I agree with Mr. Ward in theory. Four innocent lives, including that of an 8-year-old boy who was obliterated so completely by one of the bombs that his relatives had nothing to place in his coffin, were taken on that day. You cannot celebrate a death sentence knowing what happened to merit it.
Nevertheless, the jury's decision in favor of capital punishment for this terrorist slimebag—who, let's face it, should have been shot dead in that boat in Watertown—is justice, rare justice to come from a completely blue state, and that is something to, if not celebrate, find great satisfaction in.
The Nightdragon, admittedly, is a huge proponent of the death penalty, proud of it and offers absolutely no apologies to anyone for it.  I couldn't possibly care less about any offense I cause to anyone on this issue even if you paid me to. Especially as it applies to Douchebag Dzhokhar.
If anything, it means that Judy Clarke—the attorney who helped spare the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, September 11 suspect Zacarias Moussaoui, and the shooter of Gabrielle Giffords, Jared Lee Loughner, capital punishment—finally lost a death penalty case. About time.
Massachusetts does not have the death penalty—thanks to the traitorous state representative John Slattery, who reversed his vote in 1997, ensuring that the attempt to resurrect it in the Bay State failed by his vote and his vote alone. However, Eric Holder's Justice Department sought the death penalty for Tsarnaev (all due credit to Mr. Holder for it) and he was tried on federal charges. Flashbang will now be transferred to the U.S. Government death row facility in Terre Haute, Indiana.
What the jury said, in sentencing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death, is that the life of a terrorist, someone who committed an act of war on American soil, is not more important than, or even equal to, the four innocent lives that he took.
Liberals, naturally, don't see it that way. They think he should have been allowed to receive three square halal meals every day and continue getting his Koran handed to him by kaffir prison officers wearing gloves. They claim that Flashbang would have been confined to a small room with the tiniest of windows for twenty-three hours a day. That would have been a form of torture, according to them, and therefore, life imprisonment should have been the choice. If that's true, then why did Tsarnaev's team fight so hard for life in prison? If that would have been worse than capital punishment, then why would it come as a relief to Dzhokhar and his horrible family if he'd gotten it?
The members of the jury, luckily, weren't that stupid to believe such obvious bullshit.
Opposition to capital punishment for Tsarnaev is yet another desperate attempt on the part of the Left to undermine American values and morals.
But alas, all we're hearing is how the United States is looking aberrant in its embrace of the death penalty for Tsarnaev and how it's harming our image with the rest of the world. Funny how liberals don't seem to care about how much of the rest of the world—Russia and many Eastern European countries, most of Africa, most of the Latin American countries and a good chunk of Asia—consider homosexuality unnatural and gay marriage an unthinkable deviation from an acceptable societal standard. But when it comes to capital punishment, suddenly we should be concerned about what the rest of the world thinks.
If Canadians, Brits and Western Europeans want to sniff haughtily at our decision to dispatch with Flashbang, let them. This attitude certainly explains why Europe is falling apart at the seams.
Apparently, according to 60 percent of Beantowners, to be "Boston Strong" is to be "above" the death penalty and to resist the temptation for judicial retribution. My ass.
As for Lefties quoting Jesus and the Christian ethic, which it seems they always cynically rely on to try to sway others, even though they know nothing about it? Matthew 5:17 makes it very clear how Jesus would feel about the death penalty. "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." The Law of Moses was robustly in favor of the death penalty. Jesus did not address the death penalty much at all because that was not His reason for walking the earth. But it is pretty clear to all who actually know something about the Christian religion that Jesus was not, and would not have been, an opponent of capital punishment. So, moonbats, please shut it with regard to Jesus, whom you don't have a relationship with and in fact spend most of your athiestic lives in support of agendas against those who believe in and know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
We patched this guy up in the hospital after his capture, obviously on taxpayer money.  We gave him a fair civilian trial and paid for the best defense lawyers, no doubt funded by taxpayer money.  We brought his vile, worthless family in from Chechnya to provide "moral" support for him during the deliberations for his punishment—you guessed it, on the backs of taxpayers. We gave Flashbang every conceivable bloody chance under the law.  Yet, liberals are not happy.  The jury did not go their way.
Is the death penalty vindictive justice? If valuing human life to the extent that we prohibit the taking of it and declaring that the price to be paid for premeditated murder is the state-sanctioned death of those who commit it is your idea of vindictive, then it's a definition that requires you to search your soul.
By putting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death, we have established, hopefully and finally, what we are prepared to do when militants, Islamic or otherwise, seek to take out innocent people based on nothing more than a fanantical grudge against them or their society.
The jury's decision is justice, at last, for Krystle Marie Campbell, Lu Lingzi, Sean Collier, and little Martin Richard. And also for those who suffered ghastly injuries as a result of the bomb explosions.
Farewell, Flashbang. You're a stain on this Earth that cannot be removed fast enough.
And as for you, Watertown Police Department? Next time this happens, just shoot to kill and pretend the gun went off by mistake, will you?

We don't move enough people through death row, in my opinion. I fully support it.

You're right: This process would have been much simpler if the police just shot him in the first place. (Though then the libs would be screaming police brutality....)

Unfortunately Mr Douchebag will be waiting in line with the rest of them, costing the taxpayers oodles of dough with appeals and whatnot. What a joke.
