    I agree completely. That's what i meant by adjusting the cost. It seems to me that even with some type of appeals process, it shouldn't need to take 10 to 20 years.

    It ought to take no more than 5 years and I think that's too long. Take these people out and put a bullet in their heads once they've gone through their allowed appeals.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Some people need to be put out of their misery. These arguments about "civilized people don't do that" and "we need to set an example" are ridiculous. Clearly, these people have never been affected by violent crime. As for the examples posted where victims of violent crimes are against the dp.. i don't care. This isn't about them and their revenge or healing process-- whatever it may be. It is about getting rid of people who are not worthy to exist.

    There are PLENTY of good arguments against the death penalty. It is costly and time consuming.

    Of course you do, it's not YOUR arse on the line. These appeals are in place for a reason. They are there to protect US, the United States citizen, to make sure we are not being railroaded, etc. It's like one of OUR rights to protect us. Sorry that so many of you don't understand that concept.

    Some people "need" to be, huh? And who died and appointed you judge, jury and executioner? This isn't about YOU either, an important point to remember.

    Dostoevsky summed it up for me when he said "The real measure of civilisation in any society can be found in the way it treats its prisoners". State sanctioned murder is barbaric enough but when you can't even get that right..............
