One of Tn's few serial killers that we are still feeding with taxpayer money. Why is he still alive?

Paul Dennis Reid, Jr.(born November 12, 1957[1]) is an American serial killer, convicted and sentenced to death for seven murders during three fast food restaurant robberies in Metropolitan Nashville, Tennessee and Clarksville, Tennessee between the months of February and April 1997.

I just wish that it would be sooner rather then later. I guess I may be more for capital punishment then most. I wish that the state would take that money and help out our children and elderly instead of feeding him. I think it cost about 80 bucks a day for each inmate. That's a lot of happy meals.............

In FY 2009-10, the average cost-per-day to house a TDOC inmate (including those housed at privately managed facilities) was $63.41. The cost to house a death row inmate was $92.56.

What's the point of sentencing a person to death if that person is going to stay on death row forever? Look at Richard Austin. He was sentenced in 1978 for killing Julian Watkins, an undercover officer. Austin spent 30 years on death row until he died of natural causes. So there you have a very costly trial, a costly inmate, and the Watkins family who never got closure that the execution would have brought.

rediculous. My dad works at a prison. they have tv, the choice to get their g.e.d. a library, "recess", freakin gourmet meals...(my dad doesnt have to but he doesnt mind eating the prison food, its not really bad he said)if you dont have family to miss you then why not go live for free, in close to luxury , in prison! i think inmates should have close to nothing to survive on....and almost starve to death! and be locked in their cell for days at a time!

We spend way to much money on "prisoner rights" while the victims fall to the side. And I agree, prioners have a lot more privileges then they should. ReadyGo, has it right, they should be executed immediately. After all, the victims never had a chance to get their affairs in order. I just wish that our politician's would have the guts to see it the same way.

At the very least while the inmates are in prison the state should make it "tough" for them. The state should take lessons from Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Make them sleep in tents and wear pink underwear...

lol yeah that would embarass them a lil, some might like wearing pink underwear...but i think they should suffer, and some depending on their crime, should be tortured! dying would be to easy for them.

The only true closure comes through forgiveness. Because of the necessary appeals to avoid putting an innocent person to death it is actually cheaper to lock someone up for life than it is to kill them. It is reported to have cost over 7 million dollars to execute Timothy McVeigh.

Don't say that the answer to that is to cut the number of appeals, some who have been on death row for many years, some as long as 14 years, have been found to be innocent. A hasty execution would have taken the lives of the innocent in these cases. The death penalty cannot be administered with a 100% degree of accuracy and should be abolished for that reason

Just what prison does he work at? Because, Whiteville prison doesn't give gourmet meals. Whiteville should be closed down, they are privately ran and for profit. Prison is not luxurious, judgement from a trial has been done among peers. Would not want to be a person that places end of life upon someone. Too much double standards in peoples minds.

just going by what my dad says. Peoples standards on food my be different, but they DO have the opportunity to get their g.e.d's, and they DO have a library, and they DO have "recess". Murderers, child molesters, etc...shouldn't be offered anything above the bare minimum to survive. They damn sure shouldn't be offered anything worth anything go ahead.

I understand your point of view and opinion. But in today's world everything is done by laws and so forth. Every prison has a mission statement, prisons today are to rehabilitate and give the opportunity to continue whomever's education. The people and I mean the United States of America citizens entrusted those they elected to enact the laws. With that being said, we as human beings should be humane in lives. I also know that we have employees (guards and/or officers) in prisons that should be inmates themselves.

Yes there are employees in prisons and jails that should ne inmates themselves but they just haven't gotten caught. It's good that the only judge that really matters in the end is GOD!

Fact : In Tennessee it is more expensive to put someone to death then to give them life in prison.
