Cruz gets life

| October 13, 2022

Nikolas, not Ted….geez, guys, get it straight!  Nikolas is the asswipe that shot up the Parkland High School, killing many students and inflicting the likes of David Hogg on the rest of us. (You would think that crime against humanity alone deserves a death penalty, but he wasn’t charged with it.)

Poor little Nikki had a sad childhood – apparently his mother was one of the Walking Wounded in the War on Drugs, his brain was rotted in the womb, none of the kids liked him, and meanies stole his lunch money.  Or whatever.  Regardless, the penalty phase of his trial ended today and the jury verdict is Life Without Parole.

Jurors began deliberations on Wednesday after hearing several weeks of testimony in the penalty phase of Cruz’s trial. The 24-year-old pleaded guilty last year to 17 counts each of attempted and first-degree murder in the Parkland high school shooting.

“There are 17 victims that did not receive justice today,” Fred Guttenberg, the father of 14-year-old shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg, said at a news conference Thursday. “This jury failed our families today.”


While I support the families’ position 100%, I am actually OK with the verdict under one condition. I don’t condone state-sponsored killing of its citizens – except that it’s the states duty to protect its citizenry, and in some cases the proven threat cannot be positively, 100% guaranteed to not commit more crimes against the citizenry without putting them to death. It is the ONLY penalty for which the recidivism rate is exactly 0%. So  given that, how can I support this verdict?

My one caveat is that he has to stay in GenPop.

I figure that way he will not cost the taxpayers more than a few month’s upkeep before someone Dahmerizes him. None of this 40 years appeals and delays nonsense – hell, it took them 6 years just to get him to trial.  Let the boys in the yard handle it.

Am I the only one who thinks he looks like Snowden’s kid brother?

David Hogg craves being in the spotlight so much I wouldn’t put it past him to interview Cruz.

Hopefully it will be post mortem.


For both… 😉

I think a broom handle handled dahmer in the shower.


I’m sure that the Boys of Cell Block C will welcome him and make him feel loved.

I, personally, am a firm believer in Capital Punishment, just not as it it done now. If a person is KNOWN, beyond any doubt, to be guilty of a heinous crime, within a week to ten (10) days, public execution on the Court House Square, film at 6 & 11. You can bet that when sure and swift punishment is meted out to guilty ones, the crime rate will drop off like a prom dress.

Now the taxpayer is gonna spend another coupla ten million $s to keep this trash locked up for 50-60 years.


Bubba and Tiny will make him squeal like a pig.

Don’t be forgetting about Thor and Julio….Cruz won’t!


The line to “well-cum” him will be long and savoring the squeal.


My math is a little fuzzy but I make it at 4.5 years not 6. For the amount of shit that has to be done for a multiple murder trial.that isn’t too bad.

100 years ago he would have been swinging in the breeze the next day. I can’t say that would have disappointed me.


No. He pled guilty to all charges last year. The trial was to determine if it was going to ride the lightning or not. That he was guilty there was no question.


Where’s seagull blaming all this on President Trump?


Cruz’ lawyer had him wear the ‘fashion glasses’ to make him look intelligent and innocent. They have non-prescription glass lenses in them. It’s an old Public Defender trick. They sometimes put blue frames on them to give them that innocent “baby blue eyes” look.
He tried to fake schizophrenia, catatonia and amnesia when he was being processed, but couldn’t stop gleefully grinning to himself after the cops left the room.


Part of Cruz’ defense was to plead that it was his addiction to pornography and playing violent video games that made him plot to kill his classmates rather than Narcissistic Sociopathy. I think they should repeat his defense on the internet, but say it was his addiction to kiddie porn or Gay porn and his self-loathing Homosexuality that made him shoot his classmates. He’ll make some interesting bunkmates for sure.

He just thought he had it bad in High School, he is fixing to wake up in a whole new world.


He posted a lot of racist and ethnic slurs on the internet as well as a bunch of anti-gay stuff. Seeing how practically everyone in prison is one or more of the above he will likely have a bumpy ride.


He also said that he chose Valentine’s Day for his trip to infamy to “ruin it for everyone”.
Florida, if you couldn’t find 12 people to give Cruz an express ticket to hell, you might as well erase the death penalty from your Penal Code. If he didn’t deserve it, nobody ever will.


Life in prison is way more than he deserves. He should not be allowed to draw more breathes than his victims.


He should’ve gotten:comment image

Life without parole in the electric chair.


Loved Ol’ Sparky. Especially when Bundy paid it a visit.


I have a feeling “life in prison” ain’t gonna be a very long sentence for this guy….


Dickhead kills kids, taxpayers get a lifetime bill. smh

You can kill cops, gang related killings and you are like a god while serving time but when it comes to serial killers, women and kids, it’s a different story and hopefully he won’t last that long.


Hope springs eternal.


Put him in general population and he won’t last a month.

To paraphrase Baretta, “Don’t do the crime if you can’t ride the lightning.” Yeah, it doesn’t rhyme, so what?

I don’t think this would be enough…

NOW he gets to spend the rest of his life looking over his shoulder for other lifers who DON’T GAF about him and will look at offing him the same way a Deer Hunter looks forward to bagging that Trophy Buck.


looking over his shoulder looking who’s next and looking for the end of the line.

Good verdict, but the punishment should have been a life sentence on the gurney.

There is a hearing now on a problem among jury members.
