  1. The death penalty, with its complicated appeal process and estimated wait time in the same prison system, usually ends up being much more costly to the taxpayer than life without parole.

  2. The death penalty process should be streamlined, while still maintaining due process, and implemented swiftly.

    It is the only just punishment for murder (that he been fully proven.)

  3. There HAVE been cases in the past where convicted murderers have been put to death only to discover
    their innocence at a later date.

    The classical example was Bruno Hauptman, the alleged kidnapper in the Charles Lindburge case.He was put to death in the early 30’s, maintaining his innocence till the end. Years later , there were questions on whether or not he was in fact guilty!
