Why all this effort to schedule and set dates?
It's not like they are going anywhere or have anything to do.
When the last appeal is used, 48 hours should be enough time before sentence is carried out, and even that is way to late.

Why not just do a firing squad and get it over with? This is a waste of taxpayer money at this slow a pace.

Not very efficient in my opinion. Private industry could and would make quick work of this.

I've been saying for many many years now that the government should bring back public hangings...charge a $5 fee to watch it and not only would they bring in revenue from it, but the sentence could (and SHOULD) be carried out the same day the verdict is given which would greatly reduce the number of tax-dollar wasting scum in the prison system...

It makes me happy to see that everyone is for Executions. It means we still have our common sense. Bravo Columbus.

So it takes 11 years AFTER conviction to execute a killer. At approximately $25,000 a year to feed and house a criminal, we're up to $250,000. And no one can figure out why the crime rate is high! And no one can figure out why we have deficet spending! And no one can figure out why the govenor is trying to sell our prisons!!

Sorry to have to disagree but I do. I'm sure private industry would never carryout an execution. It's not like the state who works in the "best interests" of the people -(HEAVY sarcasm in that statement - Kasick). If you are referring to privatized prisons - they will never accept or see criminals of any nature even close to getting the death penalty. Those inmates will still be mandated to state institutions that the BUM didn't sell off, thusly costing taxpayers all the same as before the 5 were sold.

Sad but will be true. No money in heavily charged or medically challenged inmates for the privatized. They want the 6 to 9 month sentence bad drivers and wife beaters.
