Victims and family of victims wearing Batman clothes arrive for the second court appearance of James Holmes, in Centennial, Colorado July 30, 2012. The former graduate student accused of killing 12 people in a shooting spree at a Denver-area movie house was due to make a second court appearance on Monday as prosecutors and defense lawyers sparred over a mysterious package sent to his psychiatrist.

This past Monday, Dark Knight Shooter James Holmes was charged with 24 counts of first degree murder; two counts each for the 12 people that were killed in the July 20th Colorado movie theater shooting massacre.  However, to many, justice is still a far cry from being served; as they would prefer to see Holmes die a long drawn out death. 

Carli Richards is one of the many of the surviving victims that are pulling for the death penalty, wanting to see Holmes suffer in the most painful way possible.  The 22 year-old had been shot in the back by the psychotic killer amidst his killing spree. 

The stable but recovering Richards had the following to say regarding a Holmes execution, according to TMZ:

"I think death by firing squad would be totally justified," Richards said, while showing the bullet holes in her body.

"Just injecting him is painless.  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 ... I wish someone would shoot him and let him bleed out," she continued.

Richards then added, "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."

The maximum penalty for a first-degree murder conviction is indeed death.  The multiple charges expand the opportunities for prosecutors to obtain convictions.

"It's a much easier way for the prosecution to obtain a conviction.  They throw as many (charges) up as they can. If you think you can prove it three different ways, you charge it three different ways," stated defense attorney Peter Hedeen, according to the Christian Science Monitor.

If Holmes gets convicted in a trial, his attorneys can attempt to stop a death penalty via an insanity plea.  In the upcoming weeks, prosecutors will make the decision as to whether or not to push for the death penalty.
