Most Americans prefer life imprisonment to death if given the choice:
Therefore there can be no doubt that the bomber will be kept in prison rather than executed. No way a liberal state will be able to oppose the death penalty (esp when they made it state law)..... and then turn around to execute the bomber. Must be consistent.
Massachusetts law is completely irrelevant, he'll be tried in federal court.
I think he will not get the death penalty just because there will probably be enough "my brother made me do it" mitigating circumstances.
<WarMoose> Think about how stupid the average person is. Now realize that half of them are dumber than that.
<Chunda> Why half?
