I personally don't think we should execute people until we can be 100% sure we never make mistakes. This year, several men were released from prison after long-lost DNA evidence proved their innocence. One of them was a guest on "The Call" last month. Alan Newton was one of the most powerful and eloquent guests in this show's history, I might add.
On the other hand, if Rodney Andrews were my father or James Nemorin were my husband, I would probably want the scumbag who killed them dead.

Definitely right verdict, definitely death penalty. Sharpton, Jackson,Barron and the rest of those empty suits should be thanking officers like Nemorin and Andrews who protect them everyday, instead of spreading hatred and dividing people.

i think thoes "detectives" that killed sean bell should get the death penalty because the same thing happened with the case of ranell wilson who killed 2 police officers and got the death penalty and to me both stories are the same but the other way around .... so there for its not fair that ranell gets the death penalty and thoes "detectives" who killed sean bell get away with the shooting of an innocent man.

I agree with the verdict but I am opposed to the death penalty (we see what just recently happened in Florida). Life without parole is appropriate for this person. The City lost two good cops because of him.

Death Penalty

Well I learned today that it could cost the City of NY over 1 million dollars to execute this gentleman (appeals run for ten years with the best defense money can buy) I am not sure I am willing to pay more in taxes or lose city services because we want "Instant Justice".

I feel life in a box would suit him fine. Leave him in solitary for the rest of his life, that would do the trick. Executing him is not the same.

Those detectives were killed for no reason and did not expect to die. Mr. Wilson is expecting to die and it is not the same thing.

I am totally for the death penalty...if, and only if, it were immediate! But keeping him locked up forever WITHOUT parole will most likely benefit us "law-abiding citizens" financially. Unfortunately, he feels no remorse whatsoever, but is thankful to have room and board each day he awakes. Go figure!

I agree 100% with the verdict but am philosophically and morally opposed to the death penalty under any circumstance. As an African-American I am puzzled why Sharpton and Co. did not appear at a trial seeking justice for 2 Black police officers who gave their lives trying to get illegal guns off our streets. Or maybe I'm not so puzzled.

Dec 20, 2006 8:11 I don't know what slimy rock Ronnell Wilson was hatched under, but in order to send him back to his maker I think it would be
appropriate to behead him with a sharpened pen knife. The other alternative is, in case the executioner needs a volunteer, I would gladly rush to the penitentiary and deposit multiple bullets into his extremely small brain.

Life without parole as we don't have a perfect system, I do not know the case but what if years down the line we have better forensic evidence or witnesses recant? Better life than death and find out we were wrong later. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind- Talmud

I agree with the verdict, I am not against the death penalty, but I would prefer if if he would rot in prison for life and learn to suffer!

I believe the verdict was corect, for two good police officers were killed in the line of duty trying to protect and to serve the public. Now judgement has been rendered, all I believe now is that Detectives Nemorin and Andrews can finally rest in peace. For these find officers showed much courage and bravery and tried to make us safe. It is now up to the jury to make the last call, life or death.

Through his depraved actions, WILSON forfeited his
life. The death penalty would be a fair sentence.

Tim from Riverdale,
He took no mercy on the two detectives that he murdered so the criminal justice system should take no mercy on him and give him the DEATH PENALTY.

I feel that despite the man deserves to be put to death, to do so does not make us, as a society, any more moral or just. I think he should be handcuffed and left alone for 1 hour with each member of the victims family· to serve life in solitary without parole.

John, I support the death penalty personally. Yet,
these individuals remain on death-row for twenty plus years, and with cost of the trail and housing these individuals it's almost pointless.

Personally, I do not believe in the death penalty, but if it is to be applied, there should be no double standards. It should be applied to all unless self-defense is the end result.

No death penalty. Constitutional and moral arguments aside, what do we do when we make a mistake? Say, Oops! Sorry? People have been executed who were innocent. One is too many.
Give him life in prison-his life is as good as over anyway..

of course the death penalty should be imposed. those two officers gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect the citizens of new york city and were never given the opportunity to defend themself. ronell wilson should pay the ultimate price and not given the opportunity for three square meals a day and a chance to receive a free education.

Killing a cop is more than murder. Because police officers represent law and order, it's not just killing a man, it's an attack on society. Thus, if you want to compare it to anything, it should be compared to terrorism.

If you want to talk about the judicial process being costly, how much will it cost to keep him in prison for the rest of his life?

And although the death penalty's effectiveness as a deterrent is disputable, it's effectiveness as a punishment is not.

in this case, I don't think the death penalty is correct. Like the previous caller said...between waiting forever for the death penalty to be fulfilled, combined with the past history of INNOCENT folks being executed, it's not the way to go.

I AM MORALLY OPPOSED TO THE DEATH PENALTY BUT BELEIVE IN THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS SO IF THE PEOPLE VOTED FOR A DEATH PENALTY WE SHOUL USE IT!THAT SAID,I THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER TO SENTENCE OFFENDERS TO LIFE AT HARD LABOR OR WE COULD JUST MAKE AN ISLAND PRISON SOMEWHERE WHERE THESE SOULLESS INDIVIDUALS WOULD HAVE TO SURVIVE ON THEIR OWN WITH-OUT HELP FROM HONEST GOD FEARING TAXPAYERS.

THEY WANNA BE TOUGH GUYS AND BRING OUR GOOD SOCEITY DOWN?WELL THEN HERE YOU GO,PUT EM ON AN ISLAND WHERE THE INMATES RUN THE SHOW AND THEN SEE HOW MANY CRIMINALS WOULD SEE THE ERR OF THERE WAYS AND STSRT TO REFORM THERE TERRIBLE WAYS OUT OF FEAR OF THAT SENTENCE! A CRIMINAL EXILE ISLAND.

While I do belive in the death penalty for delibarate, premeditated murders, is the testimony of one person (and the supposed survailance camera (?) really enough to put a person to death? - were the police exspecting something like this to occur, so that they knew where to place these survailance camera's?

Don't get your neighbor mad at you, he might accuse you of being a cop killer! The testimony of one person could put a lot of us on Death's Row!

Apart from the fact that the death penalty is not a deterrant, costs way more than life without parole and that innocent people have been sentenced to death, the toll on the families of the victims needs to be considered.

If Wilson is sentenced to death, they face years of unnecessary pain, each time the case is revisited in appeals.

(In America we do this because we believe in due process and we don't want to make irreversibel mistakes.) With life without parole the punishment begins immediately.

For the idiot who dares compare the death of two NYPD detectives to that of Mr.Bell, may you fall victim to the likes of Mr. Wilson, Mr. Bell, and the like.

These detectives were MURDERED by hardened felons, all with past records. Mr. Bell, a convict himself, was the "possible" victim killed , not murdered, due to allegedly excessive force on by the NYPD.

Your statement shows the ignorance of many. Go enjoy the walk down Nassau with the city's unemployed and downtrodden, who need the likes of Mr. Sharpton and Barron to provide them with excuses for their short-cominghs in life. I guarantee the people, of all race, creed, and color will go about their business to provide for themselves and their family in a respectable manner.

PS... Has Mr. Bell's employer joined the march? Oh, we must have all forgotten, he is self-employed! You are a joke!
