“I don’t believe he should be put to death. Just looking at it from a Catholic perspective, I think everyone should have the chance to try and make up for their wrongdoings however unlikely it is that he would actually do so. I think he should have the chance to try to become a better person in prison obviously.”

“I think the death penalty is right, especially if that is the state’s policy. And I have family members who run marathons myself. So if I were to have a family member get killed, that would be devastating. So I definitely think the death penalty is the way to go.”

“Yeah, I think he should since he was the cause of all the chaos. He kind of had it coming since people died.”

“I do. I don’t believe in keeping people in prison for a long period of time. I think it’s more of a waste of money and I do believe in the death penalty. I feel like for what he did, he should be put to death.”

“I don’t think so. It’s probably an unpopular opinion. I just don’t believe in the death penalty. I mean I know he obviously killed other people, but I don’t believe people have the right to take away life regardless of what that person has done.”
