    I don't want to watch that. There's nothing cool about watching someone die. You worry me sometimes

    It doesn’t bother me a bit seeing scum get a well-deserved bullet in their heads.

    I generally oppose a death penalty but I have exceptions and these vermin quality as an exception. I'll be relieved to see them get what they deserve.

    If every human got what they deserved while here on Earth, we'd all be dead.

    On a morbid, but related note, I wonder why US states don't resort to that fast, relatively clean and efficient execution method. All that hand-wringing over the agonizingly slow death by lethal injection, when the condemned could be dead in a second without gore by firing squad.

    I'd just like to say that you should have some respect and approach this with a lot less flippancy. I have friends who died in this bombing and know some people that were burned and maimed.

    I believe justice should be pursued (don't believe in the death penalty personally, but it's the way of Indonesia's justice system) for these people, but it should be a serious and somber affair out of respect for the dead. Hooting and cheering for their deaths isn't justice, it's the same kind of intolerant sociopathic malevolence that lead these killers to believe that murdering innocents because of their beliefs was an acceptable thing.

    Justice isn't about petty revenge and it's not about burning effigies and cheering either. It's about delivering closure to those who have been wronged and protecting society from those which would destroy it and these are matters for the serious, the professional and the responsible.

    disagree that applause is inappropriate

    I would applaud their execution as well as others

    then, too, I am not a humanist

    I wasn't commenting that the execution itself should or should not be approved of. I approve of justice being carried out here, if not the means by which it is being conducted. The Balinese are wonderful people and the damage done to their tourist dependent economy caused even more damage on top of the death and destruction.

    What I was saying is that it's disrespectful to those that were killed and injured to treat the event with flippancy. I have known victims of these people and I can tell you their friends and families don't appreciate the carnival atmosphere during a time where they are being pulled back into their grief.

    It’s common around the world and throughout history for humans to revel in the death of scumbags like this. Neither you nor your friends imo should be taking offense to basic human nature.

    The perpetrators of murder and terror should be hung upside down in a room filled with the victims' families.

    That is an appropriate sentence and a low-cost solution.

    From BBC News:
    The men on death row have never expressed remorse for the bombings; never regretted killing people they regard as infidels. [source]
    That's one of the reasons I think they should be executed. If they were repentant, I could go along with a "life" sentence. They truly are "scumbags" as previously mentioned.

    Anyway, it Indonesia's matter to deal with.

    Is that also true for those convicted of bombing federal buildings, Olympic celebrations and Planned Parenthood clinics?
