No Death Penalty for Taylor's Killers; Fifth Suspect Charged; Suspect Pleads Guilty
 
Just like the title says, prosecutors will [URL="http://www.naplesnews.com/news/2008/may/11/prosecutors-wont-seek-death-penalty-nfl-stars-shoo/"]not[/URL] seek the death penalty for Sean Taylor's killers.

While I would like to see the death penalty imposed, it may be better to get the convictions this way.

"If convicted of first-degree murder, the suspects’ fate is now sealed. They will receive life in prison without parole, according to state law."

Now these guys can suffer for 50+ years in jail with no possibility of parole.

Seems they would have had a hard time making it happen.

Sean Taylor is perhaps my favorite Redskin of all time, which says quite a lot. I've seen big hitters, but I've never seen anyone else who hit players with such speed and reckless abandon. He was also a superstar who never sought the spotlight.

But, I don't think Sean's killers deserve the death penalty. IMO, the death penalty should be reserved for the absolute worst of the worst...the Dahlmers, Gacys, and McVeighs of the world. Sean's killers were teen punks who deserve to sit for decades behind bars.

I feel like I've heard that is usually about 40 years?

I'd rather see these guys rot in prison anyway.

In Florida, anyone who is convicted of first degree murder receives a life sentence without the possibility of parole. Thus, barring a successful appeal, the convicts would spend the rest of their lives behind bars. If the defendants are convicted of a lesser crime, they will be eligible for parole at some point. When that "some point" is depends on the crime of which they are convicted.

Let them set and think about what they did for 20 to 30 yrs. I hope that they get gang rapped in the shower.

I say eye 4 eye life for life. I feel if they take a life then at least the shooter should get death, and really the accomplices also should get the death penalty. It was a senseless crime that should have never happen.

The guy that pulled the trigger should get the chair. Make an example out of the coward. He's nothing but a useless little pussy.

For the guys that didn't pull the trigger, I'd be Ok if they got 25. I think one guy went back to the car and I'd be Ok if he got 10.

I've sat through quite a few capital murder cases and they are extremely stressful on everyone involved. Even though the criteria is there to proceed with seeking the death penalty, the prosecutors will usually get input from the victim's family. As long as Taylor's family is OK with it, so am I.

I'd imagine that most of the inmates, many of them with nothing to lose, will know who they are and why they're there. These guys will be living in fear everyday until it happens. If they were assigned the death penalty, I don't think they'd ever see their official execution date.

High profile inmates are usually kept in special segregated housing units. I doubt they would interact much with the general inmate population.

Don't "SHUs" house inmates who have gotten into fights in prison? If SHUs are a form of punishment and high-profile inmates go to SHUs, do high-profile inmates serve "tougher time" than your garden variety inmates in general population?

They don't serve tougher time per se. High profile inmates are specially classified much like sex offenders are. They still have the same privileges as other inmates, they're just placed under a "keep separate" status. It's generally not in the best interest of the prison to have these types of inmates mixed in with the general population due to various security concerns.
