For Aurora shooter James Holmes (and all murderers) I oppose the death penalty — it’s too damn good! But so are prisons’ libraries and weight rooms. Make him repay society via:
1) Work: Sort garbage for recycling, dig ditches for America’s infrastructure, pick crops for America’s farmers.
2) Tests: new drugs, treatments, surgical techniques, food additives (eliminate animal tests, PETA!).
3) Donations: blood weekly, spinal fluid and marrow monthly, half his liver annually (it grows back), one kidney/lung/eye, etc.
And when he dies, screw his will: Donate all organs and assets to those who need and deserve them more.
