DEATH row? why do they call it death row?... most of them die from natural causes or commit suicide before the State ever gets around to it. They sit in a cell for 10 - 20 years or more costing the taxpayers millions of dollars. Death row prisoners cost more to confine because they are granted more resources for appeals and have more expensive trials. Either excute them or put them in general population for life without parole.
How horrible

How about a way to make money off inmates. I couldn't think of better people that have built bodies like a machine, and endurance.
Is there any idea of how we could some how regain the money we have spent on say one prisoner. How could we do that.
Making license plates seems reasonable; However; we have more areas of repair.
I often say "If I fail", I know who will feed me, clothe me, and surround me by wild activities, our Federal Prison. It's an option if one fails, crazy but true with all the pampering we offer for criminals.
So, I say how do we help the most saddest folks"Prisoners". And, I say saddest; Because no one knows how troubled these people are, and how there lives were obviously missing a decent parent or special Grand parent. Studies should indicate most men prisoners of hate and murder, have had horrible mothers. So, we aren't helping these people by shoving them in cages and surrounding them with hate. Our system is as corrupt as the folks in Presidency. We need change, and to start utilizing our resources.
I've always said that if I ever came into a ton o'money I'd sock it to the Prisons and give them 10,000.00 worth of Musical instruments. That way they'd have just a hint of harmony in their life.
But no Sister Theresa here, we also need to have profit where there is loss.

They should just line these guys up and get with it. And did you notice the overwhelming majority are hispanic followed by a much smaller number of equally dangerous white, black and asian perps. And the majority of the whites are Armenian. What a wonderful world we live in. FIRE UP OL' SPARKY!

WVD please Check your stats again on ethnicity...

Check out our database of the state's 677 Death Row inmates. About 30 percent of them are from Los Angeles. About 37 percent are white, about 36 percent are black, 21 percent are Hispanic, 6 percent are classified as other. You can also narrow your search by typing in the date the crime occurred. The guy who's been there the longest - Larry Roberts, since 1971.

How about we carry out the real purpose of Death Row and start executing these monsters... every hour...24/7 !!!( We should clear out the prison cells at this rate in short-order.) Then maybe people will think a second time about committing these haneous crimes that warrant a death sentence.( Oh, by the way, once a person is convicted, he or she has no more than 1...maybe 2 years, at most, of appeals then it's over for them!!!) GOOD RIDDANCE!!!

Scared, thank you for correcting this MORON who obviously cant READ. Next time you try to make a "racist" point, or any "point" for that matter, double check your evidence, imbecile.

False accusations the higher percentage in fact are filthy white vermin! Why is it that the white man not only kills more but chops heads and body parts and enjoys storing in garage freezers! Mr.West Valley Dave there has been a couple of murders in the West Valley recently do you have a freezer in your garage?

I agree with both of you, I was caught off guard when I clicked on "details" and it gave me the virtual thumb tack on a map and not the details of the crime.

Of course you did what do expect when you misquote figures on such a volatile issue. What makes it worse was the demographics were posted and you choose to make up your own percentages. It make the rest of us wonder do you think we dont read the stories...

This is to all of you piling on...

The list that I saw on this website had 200+ entries, not 677. I didn't get my calculator out but looked at the information presented. When I have time this weekend I'll go back through the list more thoroughly and if I am in error I'll own my mistake, if one was made. Good enough?

Albeit his post his weird, but under the circumstances you are no one to judge as you quoted your own racist stats, still waiting for you to "run the numbers" so why don't you do that before slamming someone else K WVDS!!!!!!!!!
