It Would Mean More If They Actually Had A Death Chamber

From the Las Vegas Sun: A jury decided Wednesday that a 29-year-old self-styled pimp should be sentenced to death for killing three people by opening fire into a moving vehicle after a dispute at a hip-hop event at a posh Las Vegas Strip resort.
Ammar Asim Faruq Harris wasn't in the courtroom when the verdict was read in Clark County District Court. Several relatives and friends of the victims jumped, sobbed and hugged.
"Oh!" Shanna Cherry, cousin of Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr., exclaimed before Judge Kathleen Delaney warned the audience there would be no more outbursts.
The jury deliberated about two hours after a two-day penalty hearing that Harris chose not to attend. The same jury took less than 20 minutes Oct. 26 to find Harris guilty of first-degree murder, attempted murder and weapon charges after a week of testimony in the February 2013 vehicle-to-vehicle shooting and fireball crash.
Prosecutor Pamela Weckerly cast him as so ego-driven that angry words with a man in the valet area at the Aria resort was enough to spark the murderous rampage that left cars spun-out, crashed and burning at the busiest intersection in Las Vegas.
Video recorded Harris' black Range Rover jockeying for position with a Maserati in a tire-squealing chase on neon-lit Las Vegas Boulevard, and the sound of gunshots from the SUV before the sports car accelerated through a red light and slammed into a taxi that ignited in flames in front of the Caesars Palace and Flamingo resorts.
Cherry was mortally wounded driving the Maserati. A passenger, Freddy Walters, was wounded. Cab driver Michael Boldon and passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund of Maple Valley, Washington, perished in the flaming taxi.
This thug is no better than the poop that comes out my butt.
But here's the problem.  Nevada has numerous inmates on death row but they don't have a care in the world right now as Nevada does not have a place to kill th ethugs.  That's right, we have no death chamber in the prisons.
So, they can sentence this thug to die but as Hillary says "What difference does it make?"
