Actually implementing the death penalty would save millions. These killers live better on death row then the families they killed.
We need to put in a death penalty fast-track.
$100mm is a drop in the bucket compared to Obama’s family travel and constant campaigning and fundraising at taxpayers expense, and put to a much better use.
Putting a bullet in every person convicted of murder, rape, and molestation of children instead of providing shelter and meals every day would too.
Legal reform that keeps spcial interest groups from stonewalling executions would save millions.
Carrying them out could save a bunch too...
Idiots. If they wanted a “more effective” deterrent, then they might support torture or castration. This is not about deterrence, it’s about moral relativism.
If they would simply carry out the sentences in a timely fashion, hundreds of millions would be saved.
Save criminals but kill grandma on Ocare. Charming.
Nope...put them against the wall 20 minutes after the trial and you will have justice. God will sort them out if there is a mistake.....
The conjecture of this supposed “study” goes beyond the pale. How myriad legal machinations and ploys for a few years outweighs to cost of housing and feeding murderers is a puzzle. The only good thing I see in deleting the death penalty is that another effing lawyer will have to go chase ambulances instead of camping out at prison electric chairs. The benefit of frying, however, in my mind far outweighs the downside of a potential eventual release of a madman. MARK MY WORDS....OBAMA WILL EVENTUALLY RELEASE CHARLES MANSON!
Some things are worth paying for.
It’s just one shocking study or report after another. Now it turns out an organization that opposes the death penalty says we could save tons of cash by doing away with it. We know how those death row feel about it, let’s get the take from the families of victims.
I agree it’s a most effective deterrent, but even if it were shown incontrovertibly that it had absolutely NO deterrent effect whatsoever, I would still support it. After all, it’s not called capital deterrent, it’s called capital punishment. If it serves as a deterrent then just that much better. Serendipity is always a nice surprise!
No, this is the damnable lie supported by those who wish to see a breakdown of our society.
What costs money, is the ACLU and an absolute army of other groups that simply refuse to allow justice to take it's natural course.
I approve of some appeals, so don't get me wrong. I don't support endless delays of justice for anything more than five years. These twenty and thirty year delays in the executions that have been deemed justified, are a travesty of justice.
We actually have hearings for people like Charles Manson and Sirhan Sirhan too. Should they be let go or not? Well, we could claim millions in costs to the state to justify letting them lose too. No. Let the executions begin. The victims families deserve to see justice carried out.
I’d be willing to give up the death penalty if they’d give up on abortion.
Ron White on the death penalty
Anybody convicted of murder should be given only one appeal
then given a lie detector test along with truth serum.
If they fail either test, increase the amount of truth serum
until they are dead.
This might clear the very few people wrongly convicted and
might clear up some old murders and felonies.
Lawyers (Liars) will hate this idea because they couldn’t
make as much money off the tax payers.
I have a better idea. Let’s outsource our death penalty to China. We try them, we sentence them, we ship’em to China and they execute them. Win, win, win......
