I honestly would do as much as possible within my power to help us to learn how best to avoid this happening in the future. I would also prefer that the bastard rot in jail than be let off easy with a quick death.
It sounds like you want revenge so much, you're neglecting reason.
Let me ask you a rhetorical question. What if by keeping this man alive we could learn all we need to learn to make sure this never happens again? Would you still want him killed? Probably not. Now what if we could reduce this sort of thing by 50 percent? Would you still want him killed? 10 percent? What if by keeping this alive we could be sure that at least one less innocent child would die? What if we couldn't be sure, but there's a chance?
At exactly what point does your thirst for revenge supersede your interest in scientific knowledge about why
this happened in the first place?
And then there's my point that death is the easy way out. Imagine if we killed every psycho murderer or rapist with a bullet to the head within an hour of their being sentenced? What behavior might you expect a psycho who happens to be suicidal to take? He wants to die in the first place, right? So he goes off and kills a dozen people he hates and then rapes a couple of girls and boys for good measure simply because he always wanted to do that. After all, in the end he gets exactly what he wants. Death.
Let's not give them death. There's quite a strong chance that that's what they want.
