I Call "Bullshit"

NJ panel urges death penalty abolishment

By BETH DeFALCO, Associated Press Writer 10 minutes ago

TRENTON, N.J. - A special commission recommended abolishing capital punishment in the Garden State and replacing it with life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, saying the death penalty costs taxpayers more than paying for prisoners to serve life terms.

You can't possibly tell me that a piece of sisal say, 25 feet long; a .308 cartridge; or maybe the priciest of all, 10cc's of sodium pentathol; cost more than it does to house, feed, bathe and clothe - not to mention the medical, dental and vision care of a person for say 20-50 years.

The 20 or thirty years someone rots on death row waiting for appeals now, that of course may cost as much as housing them as a lifer for the same period.

So here's a thought: Let's expedite the process akin to how Iraq handled Saddam. Once they're found guilty, we utilize the "speedy trial" facet of the constitution and get the automatic appeal the hell out of the way. If they're found innocent, game over. Otherwise, execute them within 30 days.

Money problem solved.

Cut off the right hand of the thief and let him try to eat with the hand he wipes his ass with in public.
