Well, I can't say that i'm sad for him, he made his choice when he murdered 2 people. I pray for his family and those left behind. I pray that he will be able to atone for his sins in the hereafter.

I've been reading comments on this Gardner fella for a couple days now, and it seems folks are confused about this Condemned mans future in the here after. Everyone seems to be convinced he is going to "Hell" as most refer to it. He may very well be, But what about you? The folks making all these comments. Folks,according to the good book, there are no degrees of sin, and what I mean by that is if you tell a lie, the Lord holds that in the same contempt as if you take someone elses innocent life. No one on Earth is without sin. Accept Jesus as you're lord and savior and you shall have salvation.

Oh please. Thump your bible somewhere else. I couldn't possibly care less what happens to Ronnie, or anyone else, in whatever imaginary afterlife you happen to believe in. What I do care about, is what happens to him here and now. I'm not personally willing to sit around and wait for make believe man in the sky to see that justice is afforded the wicked and am glad to it being served (finally) in this case. This world is what we make of it, and removing Ronnie makes it better.

Kill him. They should kill anybody that murders, hurts children, molests children etc. They should all be killed right away and save our tax dollars that pay for them to stay in prison for years on end.

Before this story, I had no idea that death by firing squad was still in effect. Does anyone know why he chose to die by this method?

Yes, He told one of his lawyers that he thought he would suffer less. Getting shot though the heart 4 times with a .308 caliber rifle sounded good to him.

Ignorance is bliss. And willful suffering.

Thank you for clearing that up for me. I think it would be a scarier way to go...that's just my opinion though.

Hmmmmm, digestion time.... Your statement, while amusing, is somewhat confusing in itself.

I hope his 'attorneys' are doing this 'pro bono', but we know perfectly well they are NOT. They should not be allowed to collect a cent. What a lucrative client he has turned out to be. Why would we care what he had to eat?? Oh, did somebody think to get a video??

You are confused 31: So you're saying WE (which would be WHO??) are taking the life of an innocent man?? You truly are confused and BTW it"s 'your' Lord and Savior, not you're.

Ah yes, I made a typo. YOU'RE right. Taking Gardners life would not be considered an innocent one. And you taking everything in the literal sense probably does confuse you. Read it again, DUhhhhh and put your thinkin cap on.

16: VERY good. I know exactly what you said. However, to think God would consider a lie the equivalent of murder is confused. Of course, if the lie caused great destruction and suffering - maybe. Are you saying that we commenters are condemned to the same fate as rg, or what? Just curious because I really DIDN'T UNDERSTAND that part.

Depends on what you believe. If you are a Christian, then you know that all sin leads to condemnation, no matter what degree of sin you consider it. Wether a lie or Murder, both the same in the eyes of the Lord. Sin is sin. Now "rg" as you call him, would not be an innocent life taken. The Bible is clear about this. "an Eye for an Eye". He has taken 2 lives (3 if you count the deputy who died later). Without repentence, He will certainly suffer.

Good to see him go.
Religion is a crutch btw. Its one thing to be spiritual and desire an afterlife and another to state facts that have no basis.

In other words, we are ALL condemned automatically because of some little wrong or perhaps large wrongs we have committed? Sorry, I do believe there are 'degrees' of sin and murder is a pretty big one. Having said that, why should we not take rg's (as I call him) life?? Guaranteed, HE will not kill anyone else. I do believe in repentance which would, if sincere, nullify the condemnation. However, I believe rg needs to do it elsewhere.
