Lethel injection is too good for these animals bring back the electric chair especially the one's that catch on fire. It makes one sick to think of all these victoms murdered and how our system of justice
forgets the victoms families
and their suffering.

I have witnessed all executions since 1989 and my conclusion on the death sentence is that of revenge for the victim's family only. It does little or nothing to stop the crime and the cost to execute criminals far outweighs the costs to put them in cages for the rest of their lives and without human contact ever again.

A very good question. My opinion is the process to execute criminals and the time from conviction to sentence being carried out.

How does it cost more to execute?

Appeals is the added cost to executions. It i a matter of public record as the cost to defend a death row inmate. I have two convicted killers that are going through the appeals process and it has been more than ten years since conviction and sentence. If the two had been given life the appeals would have been faster and they sit in a cage at less cost to us. That's a fact. The only saving grace to all of this is once its done that individual's genes have been removed from the pool.
