    Had a woman and her boyfriend kill an entire familiy of 6 Christmas Eve here in 2007. Her parents, brother, sis in law, & young niece & nephew. (Her idea)

    It cost $7 million before they ever got them to trial. His trial just ended and he was sentenced this week. Life in prison, no parole. Most of the $$ spent before trial was determining if they could and should go after the death penalty for either/both of them.

    No matter what you think of the DP, the system is BROKEN.

    Primary purpose of death penalty or locking someone up is to remove a threat to society. To that end, as far as I'm concerned, life in prison without possibility of parole is functionally the same as death via whatever means used at the time/place. From that point, for me, it's all about money, and which leaves the most on the table.
    The thing is there really is no such thing as life w/out possibility of parole. Someone may be sentenced to that but the parole board can always change it.

    I've done a great deal of reading on the history of our legal system in general, and I'm coming to the conclusion that the system ISN'T broken...it was never really working to begin with, it's just that there were so many less of us in ages past, that it was never really noticed.

    They make that decision with the same information presented to the jury at the time of the trial. Unless this parole board is staffed with a group of people who are dramatically different than those of the jury, they will come to the same conclusion as the jury did.



    The real trick, of course, is to fix known issues within our court and appeals process to make 40K per year for the next 50 years be less money than 5-10 years of appeals process for the death penalty.

    There really was little chance for some other outcome to this case.

    The revenge-types will love this.

    I am against it and all killings by the state in the name of 'Justice'.

    Throw him in jail for life...protect society from him. But don't kill him.

    The death penalty is for the ignorant and the weak, IMO.


    Btw, I wonder how many Bible-thumpers will approve of this/any execution? You know, with that 'Thou shalt not kill' stuff and all.

    No doubt they will find a Bible loophole.

    The parole board is dramatically different than a trial jury. If you support anything other than the death penalty for this guy, you have to be real about acknowledging that there is a chance, however remote, that he'll be released.

    And here's a good example of how some notorious killers actually have fans

    That's the problem. The bomber will be killed humanely in a relatively comfortable setting. If we're going to have the death penalty, it ought to be unpleasant. Let's make him an example. He ought to be hanged in public just like the old days.

    OK.



    Because there is a .00001% chance that this guy might get released on parole 50 years from now, we should spend millions more than the cost of incarceration to seek the death penalty.

    It's a poor financial decision.
