James Holmes Shooting Victim Pushes for Painful Death Penalty

by at . Comments

Carli Richards, a 22-year old who was shot in the back by James Holmes during his alleged rampage in Aurora, Colorado on July 20, wants to see the murder suspect given the death penalty.

In the most painful way possible.

"I think death by firing squad would be totally justified," Richards tells TMZ, showing that site her body's bullet holes. "Just injecting him is painless."

Holmes is facing 24 counts of first-degree murder and prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty if he's convicted, as long as surviving victims or families of those killed are in support of that punishment.

"I had enough needles in me that night to know that a needle isn't that bad. I want him to see what it feels like," Richards says of her hospital experience and her feelings on Holmes, adding:

"I wish someone would shoot him and let him bleed out… He shot me with stuff they use to shoot birds and deer. I want him to feel what it's like to feel that helpless."

Both Richards and her boyfriend made it out of the movie theater alive, but this young woman says she's still in pain and her injuries are preventing her from working.

Elsewhere, Steven Hernandez - the brother of late victim Rebecca Wingo, whose mother is suing the theater inside which the tragedy took place - echoes Richards' sentiments.

"Allow the justice system to punish this murderer," he also tells TMZ. "I want to see him sentenced to death and I hope he sits in jail many years waiting to die.

What do you think, readers? If found guilty, should James Holmes receive the death penalty?

What is the use of executing this scum bag. This doesnt deter crime nor does it make him suffer. But if he goes to jail for life he has to spend every second of every day thinking what he did. No life to look forward to no wife no kids nothing to do but rot in jail for the next 50 years or so. Im really glad my country doesnt have the death penalty it seems americans are all to eager for the state to kill someone. Executions does not deter crime and him dying doesnt make him suffer

People who want to be lenient with Mr. Holmes are people who were not shot or loved ones not killed.

No I don't think holmes should get death penalty.! He's still very young, an we all make mistakes when were young.! He deserves a 2nd chance, but he does deserve to sit n prison for awhile.! He does not deserve to die. Why don't u ppl say he deserves a 2nd chance.. atleast the 12 ppl he killed are n a much better place now, then waiting on this earth for obama an the government to kill us.! Hands down obama is goin to kill all of us, that's wat the END OF THE WORLD IS GUNNA BE.! Anyways he DESERVES to live. It doesn't make sense to kill another life!

Barack obama is the real mass murderer. Once a week he draws up a hit list of targets to be assassinated without any semblance of a due process. James Holmes' sociopathic actions are a mirror image of the homicidal and criminal violence of the us government
