    Honestly, this is why I don't advocate for the death penalty. Decades later is hardly a deterrent. I suppose it needs to be there so we can plea-bargain it away for confessions and locations of bodies. Maybe if we knew what it was like to be a prisoner on death row for twenty years it would seem more daunting.

    I still think nothing beats semi-isolation and dying alone...

    Your opinion doesn't make him a racist. A psychiatrist's opinion however does point to him being a schizophrenic - and a troubled soul with a different opinion on race.

    I guess the Grand Dragon of the Mississippi KKK in 1963 was just a troubled soul with a different opinion on race too, when he ordered churches to be bombed, and helped snuff out the lives of 3 civil rights workers.

    Its not my opinion. He fits the definition of a racist.

    The amount of time is ridiculous, agreed. Just wastes even more $$$.

    Agreed. Never thought about it as a bargaining chip before but altho it probably works, it still wouldnt justify the DP, just IMO.

    I watch a lot of a channel called Investigative Discovery on cable. It is very apparent to me that a parent's worst nightmare...worst nightmare! is a missing child. For that reason, I think (with the victim's family's consent) the death penalty would be a worthy bargaining chip.

    And really? I do so like the idea that, when their end comes, instead of being surrounded by loving family and friends? They will take their last breath in a prison infirmary.

    That is a really good point Maggie. Something to consider.

    I do like how you think :-)
