That is a bit complicated for me. I am for the death penalty for other reasons. First, I think that putting a human being in a cage for the rest of his life is cruel and unusual.
Ask people on death row if they'd rather be in a cell, or dead
Second, a bullet is less expensive than 40 years of prison. Unfortunately, our legal system has rendered the cost savings moot. Moot
, where I come from, means up for debate
However, disposing of people because of the expense is rather cruel attitude.
It probably is less expensive to cage someone these days. So, I fall back to the first argument. It disgusts me that we have made an industry out of caging human beings.
So, death penalty for all gaoled inmates?
And what about the 'industry' of death - electric chairs, lethal injection devices...
