James Holmes death penalty decision: ‘I want to watch him die’ say victims of Colorado theater shooting | Mail Online
The prosecutor’s decision today to seek the death penalty for Dark Knight ‘killer’ James Holmes has been applauded by victims and friends of victims who say they want to watch him die.
One friend of Holmes’ 12 victims even said he wants to watch the alleged killer die.
‘I don’t know if it’s painful. I want him dead. I just want to be there in the room when he dies,’ Bryan Beard told ABC outside the Colorado courthouse. ‘He took one of my friends from this Earth. Death equals death.’
Beard’s close friend Alex Sullivan was one of the 12 people killed in the shooting on July 20 last year. It was his 27th birthday.
